Beating The Close Shave | Cornerstone


Welcome to another blog post! The wonderful guys over at Cornerstone HQ sent me a wonderful box of goodies to try out so I thought that today I would tell you my opinions of them.

Cornerstone is a company that is based around a male grooming subscription box that is all about the face. Cornerstone specify in shaving and other products such as face scrubs. You can select a combination of products such as the face scrub and shaving gel and a delivery schedule to match your personal shaving routine as Cornerstone recognise that everyone's personal routine is different. .Cornerstone ensure that your plan has free delivery attached to it so you don't have to pay extra to ensure that its there for your personal routine and if you want to pause or stop the delivery routine then thats easy to do as well as Cornerstone and myself know that sometimes taking a break from anything can be messy. 

Cornerstone kindly sent me a box filled with goodies and I thought that it would be best to talk to you about the components of the box individually.

Face Scrub

This scrub is blended with Cedarwood to give a very deep yet slightly sweet scent. The face scrub also contains Volcanic Sand Exfoliating Grains which exfoliate the skin which helps lift dead skin cells, unblock pores and reduce shaving spots. I love this scrub as it gets into every nook and cranny and its a great mild scent to use when it comes morning and evening shaves as it's not too potent that it invigorates you or tries to knock you out when using it.

Shaving Gel

Shaving gels can just be well shaving gels but this one is specially created to ensure that sensitive skin doesn't get harmed from razor burn. It also contains Eucalyptus and Ginger extracts but honestly I think that this product smells of Tea weirdly but I love it.

Post Shave Balm

This balm helps to soothe, refresh and moisturise the skin after shaving. It also helps to reduce irritation as sometimes your skin can feel irritated once shaving has finished. This has Mint and Honey within it so it helps to soothe via the Mint and helps to nourish the skin via Honey. I love this post shave balm but the Mint does make the skin tingle so I'd be a bit careful when first using this product but otherwise I think that it is a great product.

When you order a razor via Cornerstone, you can get your initials engraved inro it so for me I got JS engraved. I think that its an amazing idea. I also love the metal of the razor as it just feels and looks like a professional grooming tool.

Razor Blades

Cornerstone has brought out a new razor which has five sharp but fine blades,which reduces clogging. They've also brought out a new precision trimmer blade for those hard to reach areas which honestly anyone who shaves needs. Each blade is made from Japanese chromium steel to reduce micro-corrosion of its cutting edge and is coated in a layer of Titanium and Diamond grade Carbon to ensure the cutting edge stays sharper for longer.

I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post and I hope that you come back next time for another entertaining post. I hope that you've had fun reading this!

Thank you to the guys at Cornerstone for sending me these amazing products. They have helped change my shaving game completely and I don't think that I'll be going back to the disposable razors that break on you within the second use.

Thanks for reading!
