About Us

Thanks for visiting the about us page for the Shaving Emporium. If you have come to this page, we figured out that you may want to know a little more about us, and who we are. We are simply a bunch of friends, who have worked together on many different work projects. We also share a passion for male grooming.

My name is Enda McLarnon, and it is my job to pull all of this great information together, and try to put some order into this website. All of us had one main thing in common, which was male grooming. In particular we enjoy wet shaving. One evening one of the guys suggested building a site about it, especially for men based in the United Kingdom.

Shaving Reviews in the United Kingdom

When we were looking online for information, almost all of the sites showing up were USA based. There were also many websites that looked at shaving equipment in Europe. Don’t get us wrong, we have nothing against that, except that the information, especially on shaving products was not directly relevant. Many of the razors that had been reviewed on those either don’t exist in the UK, or you simply can’t make a purchase of them through sites like Amazon.com. You can also purchase different types of shaving gear at the UK version of Amazon.

On top of that, there were a lot of great UK manufactured products that we all used and wanted to tell people about. Among our group there were a couple of technical people. They agreed to build the site, and the rest of us agreed to provide the content. And so that was how the Shaving Emporium was born.

There are eight of us covering the age ranges of 18-80, so plenty of variety there, and as you can imagine plenty of opinion.There are many other aspects to male grooming other than just shaving of course. Now if you look at my picture, you will see that I don’t have a great need to go to a barber or hairdresser. That said the bits of hair that I do have still need to be groomed, so a set of hair clippers can come in pretty handy, and save me expensive visits to the hairdressers.

On this site we will discuss the many products that are available for men, that will allow them to get the type of grooming that they want. That will include all types of razors, blades, soaps, creams, after shaves and moisturisers. There are hundreds of those to pick from but we try and narrow this down in to the ones we use the most, and explain why.

How We Do Our Shaving Reviews?

All of our research is based on reading reviews from actual buyers. We also like to understand why and how they rate the products they bought. We also examine the way that they do that. Finally we then try and pull all of that information together to make it easy to understand.To do that we look at the different websites that sell all types of shaving and grooming equipment and read through the reviews. We make notes of the features that people like best and also the things that they don’t like about a product.

We then list these in order of rating so as you have the most up to date information available. That in turn helps you make a much better and certainly more informed decision. Many of our members also own the products and when this is the case we can of course give you a much more detailed and personal review. We so however still take into account the overall reviews of other buyers.

This website we hope will be a great resource for all of us who are traditional wet shaving fans. We also hope that it will become a useful source for any man who likes to take care of his overall grooming needs.
