Double Edge Safety Razor Starter Set Giveaway Contest

Last week I wrote about how I prepare to shave with a double edge safety razor and how much I love shaving now. Yes, I know that sounds crazy, so I’m going to type it again.

I love shaving with a double edge safety razor.

I am so confident that double edge shaving will change your life that I’m giving away a starter kit to one of my readers.

Here’s what’s included in this bundle:

  • A Van der Hagen shave set with a badger bristle shave brush, a shaving cup, a puck of shaving soap, and a brush / razor stand.
  • Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm.
  • A Lord L6 double edge safety razor (new).
  • One stick of Arko shaving soap.
  • A twist-up plastic shaving stick container from West Coast Shaving.
  • Five Gillette 7 O’Clock Yellow razor blades.
  • Five Astra Stainless Steel Super Platinum razor blades.
  • Four Merkur Super razor blades. Sorry, I used one, so you only get four ;).

How to win

It’s easy to enter to win. Leave a comment below telling me how often you shave now, and what you use to shave with. For example:

I shave once every two days with a Gillette Mach 3 razor and Edge shaving cream for sensitive skin.

It is very important that you put your real email address in the comment form below. This does not mean you have to enter your email address in the actual comment, just the box that says “Mail (will not be published) (required)

Terms of the contest

I will announce the winner’s username (or actual name, if provided) on my blog and on my blog’s Facebook page. The winner will be announced on Friday, June 8, 2012.

I will then contact the winner via the email address you used in the comment form. This is why it’s important for you to use the right email address. 😀

If the winner does not respond with a mailing address within seven calendar days from notification I will choose another winner.

This contest is open to individuals residing in the United States. I prefer that people who enter are new to double edge safety razor shaving — the idea here is for someone to try DE shaving without a financial commitment, not so existing DE, SE, or straight razor shavers to get more loot.

This contest is open to both ladies and gentlemen.

Good luck, everyone!!

  1. Random generic Guy says:

    I shave every other day with a Gillette sensor excel razor and mug shave applied with a boar bristle shave brush. I also hone my blades against a strip of denim to make it last longer (2-3 weeks out of them is the norm)

  2. Christian says:

    I shave my face and my head every other day and use the cheapest disposable Bic’s I can find. This kit will save my life!

  3. Donny Plumley says:

    I shave my head and face every other day with a Schlick hydro 3 using jack blacks beard lube and Gillette aftershave moisturizer with SPF

  4. Jeff says:

    I shave ever other day with a Merkur HD (don’t enter me in the contest!) and a variety of blades, a cheapo Omega brush, and sandalwood shaving cream from Taylor of Bond Street. I wouldn’t recommend this brush (go badger), but that’s my biggest complaint.

  5. Jody says:

    I shave every other day using a Gillette Fusion Power razor, Neutrogena skin clearing shave cream/lotion and Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion.

  6. Jeremiah says:

    I shave daily in the shower with a Gillette Mach 3 Turbo and using Nioxin Conditioner.

  7. Kevin says:

    I shave my face daily and my head every other day with a Schick Quattro Titanium razor and Edge shaving cream.

  8. Jason says:

    I shave (almost) everyday in the shower using a Gillette Sensor cartridge razor and whatever shaving cream is cheap…

  9. GK says:

    I shave every other day with a Gillette Sensor and whatever gel style cream is on sale.

  10. Zach Smyser says:

    I shave my face once a week typically with Wegmans brand 4 blade disposable. Not a bad buy for 7.99 and comes with three extra blades not including the one on the razor. Depending on my mood I shave my head maybe twice a month using a new blade and Gillette fusion hydra Gel.

  11. Zach Boyle says:

    I have to lube up my neck with Honey bees and cobra meat. Then my honey badger Leo chomps away the tasty treats provided including my stubble. It is a painful, bloody process but he does a good job of getting all the nooks and crannies nice and smooth! If you have a product that does better than Leo the honey badger I would love to try it!

  12. Brice says:

    I shave about five days a week using a Merker double edge razor and Herbaria shave soap. Derby Extra blades rock the world!

  13. Adam says:

    I shave on MWF with a Mach 3 and I use a bristle brush and Demon in the Dark soap from Lush (not meant for shaving, but I like the pepperminty feel on my face). I’ve long thought about making the leap to a safety razor but haven’t done it yet. Even if I don’t win, I’m going to give it a try. Just going from shaving foam/gel crap to soap allowed me to go from shaving once a week to every other day with so much less skin irritation.

  14. Brandon says:

    Generic disposable razors and Barbasol aloe shaving cream because I like the sent.

  15. Stan says:

    I shave twice a week with a Gillette Fusion and one of their gels. Destroys my face, but works great on the scalp.

  16. Adam says:

    This is going to be a weird request, but on the off-chance I win the contest, can I request that you hold on to the Arko soap and twist-up container? I just read the latest entry about it being tallow-based and as a vegetarian, I’m not going to use it. I would prefer if it went to someone who would – less landfill and all that. Danke.

  17. DrFaulken says:

    Sure thing on the Arko, but there are other shaving sticks that are not tallow based. You may find use for the twist up 🙂

  18. Tom LaPlant says:

    I shave about every 3-4 days, usually with a cheapo disposable and edge gel.

  19. Marc says:

    I shave face almost daily with Neutrogena Facial Bar (glycerine soap) and Schick Xtreme3 Sensitive razor.

  20. Drew Dawson says:

    I shave 3-4x a week depending on what I’m doing at work with a gillete mach 4 or is it 5 now..? I have sensitive skin, so I was going to make the switch to this style because if you do it right i seems better at managing irritation. Also, I’m all about saving money over the long term with cheaper shaving soap & blades!

  21. Graeme Hefner says:

    I shave every 2-3 days. If I’m shaving, I use a facial scrub in the shower, then normal Gilette shave gel. I was using Mach 3s up until a few weeks ago, when I switched to the Dollar Shave Club “4X”.

  22. Eric says:

    I shave 2-3 times a week with a Mekur razor, Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandlewood

  23. Mike says:

    I shave once every couple of days with a Mach3, I bounce between Barbasol “Beard Buster” and Maca Root Shave Cream from the body shop.

  24. Jim says:

    I shave every day with a Mach 3 razor. I’ve been considering going DE, but haven’t pulled the trigger… yet.

  25. Keith says:

    I shave every 3-4 days because of the irritation from shaving any more frequently. These days I do a blind shave in the shower with a Fusion (the vibrating one).

    Though I’d be willing to shave outside the shower if I won! 🙂

  26. DrFaulken says:

    I’ve contacted the winner! If I don’t hear back from them by Monday, June 11 2012 I’ll select another person.

    Thanks to everyone for entering!
