Pay your respects to the golden age of the cut-throat blade with this deluxe hot towel wet shave from the master barbers at the esteemed Carter and Bond of London. You'll be expertly shaved and moisturised by the skilled hands of the capitals's best, leaving you looking sharp, stylish and fresh. This unique experience is a chance to travel back to a time when electricity wasn't an option, razors weren't powered by batteries and - most importantly - male grooming was a serious business.
Carter and Bond believe their luxury wet shave to be the best in London. In the unique setting of this charming Barber & Shop in Notting Hill, their Master Barber begins by gently exfoliating the skin with a combination of scrub and cleanser before applying relaxing hot towels scented with citrus eau de cologne. A pre shave cream is then massaged into the beard before a profuse lather of shaving cream is worked in with a traditional badger hair brush. Not one, but two expert passes of an open razor blade are then performed to give an incredibly close but comfortable shave. A cold towel (optional) is then briefly applied to close the pores before a final enveloping layer of scented hot towels. Lastly a refreshing after shave balm is gently massaged into the skin to soothe and moisturize.

great pressie for the man who has everything! I bought this for my Dad, after he was going on for ages about having a wet shave! I had no idea where to go for this (being a 24 year old girl...) and Buyagift did me proud! My dad LOVED it. The bloke doing it was really friendly, and a total perfectionist. One seriously pampered dad, I've never seen him so cleanly shaven! The whole shop had a totally chilled relaxed atmosphere, and sells loadsa gifts and bits of artwork and things, so it was a pleasure to look around while I waited. highly recommended! same again next year! :D 24 October 2011
Enjoyable and relaxing The barbers is a chair in the bottom of the shop, after being greeted I sat on a sofa round the corner from there and waited my turn. The barber used a shavette rather than a cut throat blade which I suppose is better for hygiene reasons but was slightly less exciting (As I already use a shavette myself). The towels and oils were really nice and felt lovely. As he started shaving I didn't know whether or not to contort my face in aid, I didn't, but it appeared at the end that they don't ask you too but it helps them a lot and makes the whole thing easier for them. When he reapplied the soap it had gone cold and by the end the shave wasn't as close as I can get with one pass at home. But the whole preparation and ceremony of it was very pleasant and I enjoyed the experience very much. 02 May 2014
