Ask Aaron Q/A: Shaving kits and sets for beginners

ask aaron image

Johnte Thompson, from the UK, asks:

“Hello, This is my first time using this type of shave (traditional wet shaving), I have always been the shaving foam type. Now I want to join the club but my question is where do I start, which is the best brush? What type of soap / cream should I use? Hope you can help. My budget is around £80 to get started.”

“Mr Thompson,
Welcome to the club! There are numerous options for you, from piecing together a kit of your own, to picking out one of the many prepared sets with brush cream and razor already together. If you would like a prepared set I would go with this BlueBeard’s Revenge Set. This would be easiest and fits well within your budget. Or you can use this set and keep your current razor and start shaving with the badger brush and cream. Whatever you choose, welcome to the club and enjoy!

Happy Shaving!
