Grooming: Cornerstone Shaving Set Review


The Promise: "Everything a man needs for a smooth, comfortable shave in a single box. Contains our entire range of quality shaving products and a personalised, engraved aluminium razor handle"

The Price: £30.00

The Stockist:

The Review: Cornerstone is a shaving brand that celebrate simplicity, creating everything you need for the perfect shave and nothing else; no complicated gadgets or confusing skincare products, just the staples. In fact, Cornerstone is not just a shaving brand, it is a shaving club, delivering products to its members as and when they need them. The brand's unique shaving service allows members to create a customised and flexible subscription based on their shaving habits.

In addition to its subscription service, the brand offer a shaving gift set that contains each of the Cornerstone staples; a razor, five replacement razor blades, a face scrub, shaving gel and post-shave balm. Now with the number of products included in this box, you wouldn't be crazy for thinking it comes at a heavy cost, however you get all of these items for just £30.00 -  affordable considering the price of a great razor starts at £20.00! Even more affordable considering all Cornerstone products are manufactured in the UK and each of the skincare products are developed by British dermatologists.


The razor has a strong but lightweight aluminium alloy handle, which is optimally balanced for control and precision. The handle can also stand upright on its base - keeping your blades as clean and protected as possible. The razor blade has five sharp, fine blades that are designed to reduce skin irritation. The blade also has a flexible head and a vitamin E & aloe vera strip, providing a close, smooth and comfortable shave.

The Pre-Shave Face Scrub (100ml) is formulated with cedarwood and volcanic sand and helps to prevent nicks, cuts, shaving bumps, ingrowing hairs and shaving spots. The Shave Gel (150ml) is blended with eucalyptus oil for its anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties. It hydrates the skin and helps to reduce any irritation caused by shaving. The final product is the Post-Shave Balm (75ml). This lightweight lotion is blended with mint and honey to soothe and condition the skin. It refreshes and cools the skin the second its applied and also injects it with moisture, leaving skin smooth and supple for the entire day.


The Pro: This affordable shaving set has everything you need for a perfect shave!

The Con: There isn't one.
