Since 2012, we have worked tirelessly to bring the best products at an affordable price to the wet shaving community. This Basic kit, priced at $31.99, is the result of that work.
These are QUALITY products, of the same fit and finish of products on the market costing 2-3 times as much. Some might even say parts of this kit are nicer than the big names offer. We would tend to agree with that assessment.
This package includes the following items:
- One Maggard Razor with solid stainless steel handle with chrome head.
- One Maggard Razors 24mm Synthetic Brush with Purple or Marble Handle
- One 2oz Tub of Artisan Shaving Soap
- 15 blades total – 5 Astra Platinum, 5 Ladas Blades, and 5 Gillette 7 O’Clock Sharp Edge
- Crazy fast shipping and stellar customer support (This comes free with all purchases at Maggard!)
We offer a 6 month warranty covering manufacturers defects on all Maggard Razor handles, Maggard Razor heads, and Maggard brushes.
We welcome you to the wet shaving world. Enjoy your stay!
Casie has hand selected these products specifically for the ladies. She has used every one of the items in this kit and feels it to be a great starting point. Her recommendation for the shave routine is as follows:
PREP Make sure to use good prep. Take a hot shower and wash your legs with a glycerin soap. You can even use a pre shave or some Conditioner if you don’t have pre shave. Rub it on your legs and let it soften the hairs.
LATHER Put your lather right on top. You may have to build multiple lathers until you get used to making a decent lather. This is why I love shave sticks. Rub that bad boy on your legs and it will help supplement your lather so you know you have enough. Do one section of leg at a time. Lower, lower, upper, upper. You can even do lower front, lower back…This is so your lather doesn’t dry out. You will get faster with time then can do one whole leg. Be patient!
SHAVE Make sure to shave with the grain first pass. You want to reduce the amount of hair. Then you can go across the grain. I would maybe leave out against the grain until you get a hang of it. I, personally, only do one pass. From ankle to hip, but if you are prone to irritation I suggest starting with out as I stated above. You can decide for yourself what passes are best for your legs.
Be very careful around the knees and ankles. Use no pressure and keep the angle at about 30-35 degrees on all the curves. To make sure you have the correct angle, lay the head of the razor on your skin and rock it down until the blade touches your skin. To maintain the correct angle on all curves you will use short strokes. You want to change the angle with each curve of your leg. To get the back of your knee lock your knee and turn it inward. Then very carefully with no pressure get the inner part of the knee. With the back of the thigh I have had the best luck with bending down, or bringing the thigh up where my thigh is on my chest. This stretches the back of the thigh making it easier to shave. Do not shave on an area without lather. If you need to make touch ups, re-lather.
