I am in the military and have to shave every day. I have a thick beard and am a 5:00pm shadow kind of guy. Using barberry coast products is the best shave I have ever had in my life. I began looking into barberry coast while deployed to Afghanistan and shaving with "hard water," it was killing my face. Initially I was very hesitate to purchase any of the products because I thought this is "just shaving cream", I'll stick with the cheap stuff. Don't let the prices scare you away, this is high quality! Barberry Coast products are simply incredible and your face will thank you and so will your wife!
I first purchased the Bay Rum Shave Cream, Bay Rum after shave balm, Bay Rum face scrub, and Bay Rum Pre-shave oil. The face scrub leaves my face feeling clean and ready for an incredible shave. The shave cream lathers up foamy and feels smooth going on. I have zero irritation, less cuts, my face is left silky smooth. In fact my face is still smooth at 8:00pm at night. But the best is the Bay Rum after shave balm. The after shave balm is simply amazing, the best thing that has ever touched my face besides my wife and kids' kisses. I never really used after shave before. The bay rum after shave balm is like smooth butter going on your face and leaves my face feeling healthy. The smell of the bay rum leaves you smelling “manly” and fresh, but not an overbearing smell. This product lasted me about 5 months but I probably could have stretched it out to six months.
I recently purchased 2x Havana Shave Creams and 2x Havana After Shave Balms. I can't wait to get home from Afghanistan and try them.
Additionally, Allen Crawley's down home 'mom-n pops' customer service is refreshing and appreciated. He treats you like he values you and your business and as if you are an old friend. Upon my second purchase, I was having trouble placing my order due to some military restrictions in Afghanistan. I sent Mr. Crawley a message stating what I wanted and asked him to call my wife ...
