The Shack scores 4 out of 5
“From badger-hair brushes to cut-throat razors, this re-launched online store has everything the discerning gentleman needs to ensure a smooth shave,” the review read.
It added: “You can even buy ‘something for the weekend’ and get tips on painless whisker removal.
”Despite its traditional wares, the site has a friendly, modern feel that makes effective use of social-media elements in, for example, product-demonstration videos.
“A blog and Twitter feed deliver updates from the shaving world and you can get 10 per cent off your next purchase if you sign up for the newsletter.
”Most importantly, the smart design makes it easy to browse hundreds of products, and you can read and write reviews.”
Shaving Shack web manager Nick Gibbens, who oversaw the recent redesign of the website, said he was delighted with the review.
“We built the new website with the customer journey at the heart. Web User’s review shows we have achieved our main goal and this is of course reassuring.
“Our new site is wider, innovative and user-friendly, and really serves as a model for what savvy consumers expect when they shop on online.
“Our previous website was a little outdated, and did not completely serve the purpose of informing our customers about the extensive range of products we sell.”
