The Aussie Bulldog
I had my first dance with Jack the Barber this morning. These are new products that we have just started to sell in the Supermarket were I work. There is a Shaving Brush, 3 piece DE Razor and Shaving Cream. I did not pre-wash or pre-sterilise any of the products as they are new. The DE razor weighs in at 55 grams and is 10 centimetres long (4inches) including the head. What I like really like about the razor is that the blade is completely enclosed within the head of the razor. The blade tabs don’t stick out like on most razors. I used a Bolzano blade for the Shave. There was plenty of audible feedback even on the third and final pass. I gave myself one weeper on the first pass but that was operator error. The brush lost less then 10 hairs in its first use and is made of synthetic bristles. It is very soft and I did enjoy using it. The Shaving Cream is very soft and mainly smells of Sandalwood. My first Lather was more like I had applied a layer of Sunscreen to my face as I loaded far too much cream onto the brush. It got better as I progressed through the Shave and added a little more water to the brush. It might be better to bowl lather which I will try later in the week. All the products are made in China and the Brush and Cream are advertised on the packaging as 100% vegan friendly. I thought that I might struggle with the handle being smooth but I had no trouble using the razor. Overall I think that these are pretty good entry level products.
