Grooming Lounge “The Greatest Shave Ever” Try Me Kit Review

Product Type

This is a grooming kit for men that includes a number of different products related to shaving.

What is included in The Grooming Lounge "Greatest Shave Ever" Try Me Kit?

  • Mug Cleaner Face Wash (2 oz.) 
  • Beard Master Shave Oil (.7 oz.)
  • Beard Destroyer Shave Cream (2 oz.) 
  • Best For Last Aftershave (2 oz.)

On the Face/Shaving

I keep a full bear year-round, but I have to shave around my beard (mostly in my neck area) to keep it well-groomed. I started off by not shaving my neck for a good 8-9 days so there would be a good amount of growth to test these products on. When using these products, I wet down my neck with hot water as described on the back of the bottles. I then applied the pre-shave oil , which went on very smoothly and did not leave that horrible greasy feeling that some other pre-shave oils I have tried in the past have. Next, I applied the shaving crème. I used about a quarter-size amount on my entire neck.  It lathered up very nicely and was one of the closest shaves I have ever had.  It left my skin feeling soft and not irritated at all. There was no pulling or drag while shaving. I finished this off with the after shave, which left my skin feeling very soft and was very soothing. I should note that when I opened each bottle, every single silver tab came right off, but left the glue and plastic seal behind, making it a bit difficult to open each bottle. While this was a bit of a hassle, it was worth the effort to open each bottle. I would rate this shave as a 5 out of 5.

Final Thoughts

This is a great gift set that you could purchase for yourself or someone else. I would buy these products individually or as a kit given my experience. These products had a subtle scent to me (though I don't have the most sensitive nose) and all of these products combined provided a close and great shave with no irritation after. I give this a 5 out of 5 overall and recommend giving it a try if you're looking for a new shaving routine.
