Welcome to the Shaving Emporium. At this website, you will find lots of shaving information for men in the United Kingdom. It is also highly relevant to people in Europe and beyond. In the main content you will find lots of information about shaving.
However we have also included information on nose trimmers, ear trimmers, and stubble trimmers. Basically if it has anything to do with having hair on your face, or taking it off your face, you should find something about that here. We even cover off body grooming as well.
There is a lot more to shaving, than pulling out one of those disposable razors, and scraping half your face off in the process. More and more men in the UK are starting to take great pride in their appearance, and the way we trim or shave goes a long way to providing a well groomed look.
The good news is that many men are now thankfully returning to the older methods of traditional shaving. Many also still use the electric razor so we look at those as well.
Is Shaving Just A Chore?
For many men the daily morning routine of having to shave is just an annoying chore that needs done. Well hopefully we can help you out with that, and make shaving an enjoyable experience, instead of something that you just have to do.
There is a very old saying that says, “If you look good, you also feel good.” We think if you are reading this, that you probably care a great deal about how you look and are presented to the world at large. Many of you are pushed for time so you may want to use an electric shaver. Others prefer the more traditional wet shaving. That of course requires the use of a double edge razor, or straight razor, some soap or cream and a shaving brush.
When we went looking for information online about shaving, we found websites mainly based in the USA. Sure some of them are helpful, but we thought it might be a good idea to have an information site, based and written from the UK. We have our own types of shaving supplies here and in truth, we actually think they are some of the best in the world, so why not show those off instead.
The notion of the “macho man” has convinced many men that the way we look is not important, and that is is “manly” to treat our skin harshly, if we even bother at all. We know that type of attitude in reality is just not true, and more importantly so do our partners.
When you think about it, who wants to sit next to some scruffy looking man, who hasn’t taken the time to shave or comb his hair for days. Men have changed a lot in the last 10-15 years and grooming and taking care of our skin is now an important daily activity.
OK, maybe the picture above is a bit over the top, but you get my general drift. With just a little extra time, it is amazing what you can do to look great every single day. In a similar way, men with moustaches and beards are starting to use beard and moustache trimmers to keep their facial hair in shape.
Nose and Hair Trimmers
Now speaking of facial hair, one thing we can never quite comprehend here at the Emporium, is the number of men we see with huge growths of either nasal hair, ear hair or both. In this day and age, there really is no need for that. We have therefore put together a page dedicated to nose hair trimmers, that should remove any need to ever have a forest growing in the nose or ears. You could also add bushy eyebrows to that list.
These types of trimmers are very cheap, most of them costing between £5-10, so not really any excuse not to own one of these. You can also get these built in to many of the electric shavers available these days.
Traditional Wet Shaving
We also discovered that quite a number of men are turning to having a wet shave, which is without any doubt the closest shave that it is possible to get. Here we enter the world of safety razors, blades, creams, soaps, stands and so much more.
We will also include on this site reviews on the benefits, if any, of using pre-shave oil, and what actually is the best after shave to use. There are a ton of brands making after shave and cologne and much of that will come down to personal taste. We have reviewed what the best sellers are and why men pick those.
Here at the Shaving Emporium we are passionate about wet shaving. It was something that our Fathers and Grandfathers did every day and we have now taken on the gauntlet of raving about the many great benefits of wet shaving. If you have never tried it before then we urge you to give it a go. We can assure you it is something that you will never regret.
Ever Thought About Cutting Your Own Hair?
Quite a number of people are now cutting their own hair. Not only that, but we have discovered that quite a few families are going in that same direction. It is actually quite amazing how much money this can save a family in a year. That is especially true if the family has a number of boys in it.
You can find out how much you can save by clicking here. To help we have also reviewed the top hair clippers in the UK market right now, along with the different accessories that are available for these. There are hundreds of these available and most of them are priced at around £20-30 for a nice high quality set of clippers.
We will also be having a look at shaving alum, and a closer look at some of the most popular after shaves. When checking these out, there were some that I had simply never heard of, and yet, they appear to be quite popular.
Another term we had heard of, but didn’t know a great deal about was manscaping. In these modern days, things have certainly moved on in leaps and bounds, as far as male grooming is concerned. It certainly makes really interesting reading. Today more and more guys are making the choice to keep the hair on their body under control.
A great way of doing that is to use the many different types of body groomers that are on the market today. We have provided here a top 10 List of these groomers which we hope you will find useful.
So as you can imagine, plenty to write about, and plenty to read for men of all ages. We firmly believe here that looking like a well groomed man is not that difficult to achieve and maintain. We hope you find the information here useful, and if you have any questions just leave a comment below, or drop us a message from the contact page.
