Okay, so I know I did a Father’s Day gift guide last week, but I just discovered this!
The Bluebeards Revenge – yes, really! I mentioned in my last post that my dad was impossible to buy for. He is, but he is known as ‘John the Pirate’, so this brand caught my eye – it looks like it was made specifically for him!
The idea for the range came from the fight to banish the ‘blue beard’ most guys struggle with – the one the have even though they’ve just shaved. My Portuguese boyf has this all the time, so just doesn’t bother to shave at all. He just clips his stubble because even if he shaves, it looks like he hasn’t.
I’d like to meet the creators of this brand because not only did they come up with that amazing packaging; they also describe the brand like this:
Designed by a real life “Blue Beard” who was bored to death with being a Desperate Dan look-alike, The Bluebeards Revenge is a paraben free, premium quality shaving cream with added ingredients to specifically combat tough stubble.
They have great kits as gifts. There are 11 in total to choose from, but my favourite is the Starter Kit, R600 (contains 100ml Shaving Cream, 20ml Post Shave Balm, “Doubloon” Brush and Anti-Perspirant Deodorant)
