The Personal Barber


Hey girls and guys hope you are all well, so its a new month the year is going so quick.
Anyway we all know how gift buying can be hard and stressful never know what to buy 
for someone do they already have this dvd do they have this game.

Well a lot of people say buying for a guy is the hardest
I know this myself even buying for my own partner,
brother or guy friends is really hard.

Well I was emailed by the founder of the personal barber who has a great product that can be brought for yourself as a guy or brought as a gift for a guy.

So you're probably like come on get on with it 
I wanna find out what the hell you're babbling on about so here goes.

What is the personal barber?

The personal barber is a company who specialises in subscription boxes for men.
The boxes are all shaving based and contain everything you need for the perfect shave.
From the best soaps to the best blades each shave you have will leave you feeling clean.
You can either buy 1 box or more it is really up to you to what suits your needs.

About The Company

We asked the founder to how the personal barber came about.
Heres what he had to say

A bit about why I founded The Personal Barber:
I used to hate shaving, I saw it as a necessary evil if I wanted to look presentable for work. After being introduced to classic wet shaving with a single blade I genuinely couldn't believe how good it was. No more rash under my neck or breakouts on my face and I could shave every day rather than twice a week. After speaking to a lot of friends, I realised that I wasn't alone and that most resent having to shave. They either dislike having to waste their precious time, hate the irritation it causes or, in the majority of cases, both. After introducing them to classic shaving and seeing such strong feedback, I decided I wanted to get as many people enjoying their shave as possible. There are already plenty of companies out there that sell razors and soaps so I wanted to create something a bit different. With a new surprise of exciting goods each month, The Personal Barber is about turning shaving into an experience to look forward to rather than a daily chore”

How much does it cost ?

it depends on how long you want to subscribe for the longer you choose the better the discount.
below i have listed the prices please note these may change if you are reading this post some time in the future so please always check the personal barber website for any updates.

Month to Month £24.95 per box (free delivery)

So this is like buying a box this month and then maybe one in a few more months.
Each box will be £24.95 so it works out a good price.
But if you choose to do longer your get a better deal in the long run.

3 months £20.95 per box

so this is getting a box each month for 3 months meaning you get a not too shabby deal,
with 17% of each box it is a deal that not only means you save money but means you get the exciting goodies for 3 months meaning you keep on having the best shave.

6 Months £19.95 a box

Wow these deals keep on coming if you choose to subscribe for 6 whole months.

12 months £17.95 per box

OMG now a whole year for just £17.95 a box saving you 28% A year.
I bet you thats cheaper than your gym membership Yes? no? let me know in the comments.
So a whole year of the person barber boxes delivered to your door for 1 whole year.
So you could have a whole year of keeping your facial hair under control.

So you're probably thinking I own a razor I bought from a drug store.
Well let me stop you there how much do your blades cost when you need to replace them?
Also how much are you spending on harsh shaving creams and gels and aftershave balms?

It all adds up so carry on reading below I will show you what these boxes can contain.
Which proves you are getting a great deal not only for your bank but for your skin.

What does the box contain?

So the boxes may vary each month
Once you have the starter box with razor the following boxes.
The follow on boxes contain a various of soaps and other things.
But the starter box my hubby received contained the following

How To Get The Perfect Shave Guide
How To Look After Your Razor Guild
Replaceable Blades
Pre shave Facial Scrub
Shaving Cream Balm
After Shave Hydrator
Shaving Brush

My Hubby Tried Out A Trial Box

his words
“ I really prefer shaving with this razor purely because it gets better results.
Also i found I don't get any shaving rashes or irritations like with other razors.
also after shaving it is easy to clean the razor which is also a bonus.
Normal razors Seem to trap hair and dead skin cells which is gross,
I found that this razor did not do this at all which is superb.

Also I found With the personal barber box I have made more of an effort to shave.
As well as use the face scrubs and hydration to take more care of my skin.
previously I did not take much care because of shaving rashes,
Also Some of the supermarket creams and balms contain harmful harsh chemicals.

So im not only impressed with the personal barber box im impressed with myself.
I can recommend this box to other men who like to be clean shaven and also people who are trying to find a perfect gift for a guy why not buy a starter box yourself to see how you get on.

Overall Verdict.

Well I myself was impressed with the quick shipping and great packaging of the box.
I was also impressed with the great contents of the starter box I feel it's more than a starter box.
The price I feel is reasonable for what it is seeing as you getting everything you need delivered to your door each month so no need to go to the shop and gather everything.
Not to mention you're getting the best of the best product wise.

I was also pleased that hubby enjoyed using it and made more effort to shave.
Which means he likes it, because normally he lets it grow a lot before shaving.
due to not been keen on shaving rashes caused by supermarket drugstore razors not mentioning any names but you probably know which ones if you experience shaving rashes.

HOT CHOCOLATE  blanket.jpg
Hey guys and girls have a very out of season post here for you.
I say out of season because of the product been for cool/cold days and nights.
Although I did use it last night as a blanket as we slept downstairs for a change.

So I was sent a Snuggle blanket to review via heat holders  at first I thought it is too hot to test a blanket, But then was told by someone it was national picnic month so could be useful to sit on, or even wrap around you if it is a cool evening.

Anyway Hope you enjoy reading the review 
Feel Free to ask any questions you may have.


Heat Holders company sells thermal products from your thermal socks,
There is something for everyone for your thermal needs.
Thermals can be lifesavers In winter.

About Heat holders snuggle blanket

What the website says

Kick back and relax with a Heat Holders luxury premium fleece blanket – perfect for wrapping up
warmly on those cold winter nights. With a 1.4 tog rating, its generous size and incredible softness make it a must-have item for peaceful days at home.
*Please note, there are no electrical components within the Snuggle Ups blankets.

Chloe was laying near me on sofa and was a bit cold so asked for blanket so we let her try the new one she warmed up quick and soon fell asleep so took blanket off of her.
she stayed warm for ages aswell so didn't need the blanket again.

Myself and shane then tried out the blanket at bedtime we slept downstairs for a change and the blanket was light so wasn't to heavy but did warm up super quick so i had to keep taking it off
I  stayed warm for ages, so do say the blanket is best for autumn and winter.

What I say about snuggle blanket.

Snuggle blankets are not only thermal and keep you warm.
They are soft to touch and light to carry meaning they are great for all ages.
(not like those old blankets that are thick heavy and scratchy on the skin)
Even though it only has a tog of 1.4 they really do make you warm up really quick.
I think not only are these perfect for picnics or cold nights at home.
I think every car should have a snuggle blanket because 
if you get stranded or break down these will keep you warm until help arrives.

What I liked about the snuggle blanket
I really loved the material so soft on the skin softer than any blanket i've felt before.
I also liked how quick it made me warm up which is great to know for when winter arrives.

What I didn't like about the product
The carry case it arrived in had a rip in.

Size : 180cm x 200cm
Tog  : 1.4

Overall Verdict.
Overall I am really happy with the product you could say I have really warmed to it.
I loved the feel of the blanket it is really really soft and lovely doesn't feel rough against the skin.
The product works well it warmed me up quick which is a bonus.

The company Shipped the product quick which was another bonus.
Although There was a few minor delays with the courier itself.

The only thing i would say I wasn't happy with was the carry case it arrived in was ripped.
So that might be something the company can look at improving.

Thanks for reading

Hey girls and guys hope you are all well and set for the 6 weeks holiday.
So I have been sent a product to try from AHAVA ebay store.
I thought I would change the style of this review,
As most of you know the style of review changes.
Thats because I write it how I see fits well.
So hope you enjoy reading.

Here is a few question and answers.

What product was I sent?

Ahava gold edition is a mineral body lotion.

What other products do they sell?
They sell so many products for your skin feel free to look on their ebay store.

So What did I think?

Firstly Looking at the Ahava Ebay Store I can honestly see lots of great looking products.
There seems to be a nice selection to choose from for your skins needs.
Ahava shipped my body lotion quickly and I had no issues with regards to shipping times.
However even though the bodylotion was carefully packed it seemed the delivery people didn't take great care of the package as it leaked a little bit inside the postal jiffy envelope.
it only leaked to about the size of a 50p coin.

What did I think of AHAVA GOLD EDITION

The gold coloured bottle with the great logo Makes the product that extra bit special.
Looks good to have in your bathroom dressing room, the pump dispenser makes it really lovely and useful no unscrewing lids and losing lids you know all that effort that normal lid bottles seem to have.

With the pump dispenser it's good because if you have it in your hallway your late for work your hands are dry you can quickly squirt piece on your hands and rub the lotion in as you are leaving your house talk about multitasking aye.

The Smell And Everything Else.

Oh wow the smell of ahava gold edition smells wonderful i can't quite name the scent as such but it smells luxury like a product that would be used on you in a posh spa, or luxury beauty room in a very luxury salon in london.

AHAVA gold edition body lotion 500ml is £19.99 to buy from the ahava ebay store.

I love how lovely it made my skin feel it worked lovely on my body not only making my skin feel smooth and lovely but made it smell great too much needed after all this sunny weather we have been having which drys out the skin big time.

The only thing the lotion did not really work on was my feet but admittedly nothing really doesn't work on my feet as they are so so dry and have been ever since going to camber sands a few years back.

So the cream does work just not that well on cracked dry feet so heads up if you are buying it just for your feet it is not worth it, but if you are buying it for your body then its well worth the price.

Overall Verdict

So Keeping this short and sweet I know you are all busy with the holidays ahead.
My overall views on this product are it is a lovely product 
a very nice size bottle for the price of £19.99 which in my eyes is worth it.
It smells great and makes your skin smell great and feel great which is what I tend to look for in a product because if it smells great on your skin you are gonna be more confident in using it.
After all nobody likes smelling like a toxic smell walking through town just to have soft skin.

The pump action is very ideal and useful saving time from unscrewing lids.
And also makes product last longer due to your only use a small bit and not tip the bottle and end up with too much on your hands, yes we have all done it before.

So overall yes I loved this product although I think Ahava need to invest maybe in better postal packaging due to the small leakage i had  in my jiffy bag when it arrived because of the postal service.

Also this product is only worth buying if its for your body, if you want to have smoother great smelling skin, it didn't work on my feet so be warned if you're buying it just for your feet it is not worth it.

Thank you for reading
