[tab title=”1st Box Review”]
– a double edge safety razor handle
– a shaving brush (£6.00)

– alum match sticks (£7.00)
– after shave tube from Institut Karité (£1.75)
Primal Man’s site indicates that this first box contains all the needed items for a great shave including the razor handle and a brush. The next boxes contain only the soap, some blades, after shave and other cosmetics. Apparently you receive brushes from time to time but not in each box.
The razor handle is a specially grooved handle for maximum grip and provides a smooth shaving experience. The Razor has a good weight specially designed to let it glide on your skin and “let the razor do the work”. The shaving experience is different than what you normally get with your classic disposable razor brands. Everything is about finding the perfect angle and letting the blade glide and cut the hair naturally.
In terms of quality the products were good. I have noticed though that the brush looses some hairs with each use. But having used other ones in the past, this is normal, I have never seen one that doesn’t. The Kent brand is a descent one and I hope the brush will have a good longevity.
The blades are the Supermax brand, made in India. The first shave was great! Very smooth, precise with an extreme short shave. At the second use though they were a little less sharp.
The smell and quality of the soap was really good and generated a nice lather, enabling a good shave. I was also very pleased with the after shave balm from Institut Karité and the alum match sticks. My skin felt absolutely amazingly soft after the shave.
Overall I really appreciated this box. The total value of the products except the razor handle is £21.75. I could’t find the comprable handle online, but if we suppose that the razor handle is worth at least £10, the first box is a good value. We will need to see what is included in the next boxes to really be able to judge this aspect though.
I can see this box as a perfect gift for a husband, dad or son, for a birthday or Christmas.
