If you've wanted to try out wet shaving, but have been overwhelmed by the variety of options available to you, this kit makes it easy and affordable. Plus, like all of the products offered by The Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company, this is 100% vegan. This is a complete set, with all you need to begin wet shaving. (You may wish to purchase a styptic pencil for dealing with nicks, but that's entirely optional.)
This kit includes:
1 - 4 oz jar of Vegan Shaving Soap from The Los Angeles Shaving Soap Company in your choice of scent and formula.
1 - Bai Li 3 piece DE safety razor (A good basic safety razor with a decent heft to it that offers a mild shave, which is good for beginners.)
1- Synthetic shaving brush. (The synthetic bristles are dense and soft, and hold more than enough lather for a 3-pass shave.)
1 5-pack Astra blades. (These blades are famous for being both sharp and smooth, and 5 blades will get you through your first month or so of shaving).
Everything works nicely so far. I am a beginner and haven’t gotten any major cuts yet, so that’s something.
So I’m new with safety razors and don’t know much. I did a lot of research and I just didn’t know what to get so I settled on buying a beginner set. This was recommended from Reddit and for good reasons. They did not skimp on anything. The razor, brush, and the soap are made from high quality. You won’t outgrow this set. I would highly recommend this if you’re just starting out. Very happy with my purchase.
Really good shaving set
The blade that comes with the razor isn't very sharp. Not sure about the refills, yet, though.
Got this kit back in december '19. There is a learning curve to this obviously, it took me a few shaves to figure out how to use the razor and a few months of trying different razor brands to find my perfect blade. The brush and razor are still in great condition. Shaving is enjoyable now and I get a better result than any disposable I've ever used, so this was a great little investment
