The good surprise with the shaving kit from the Barber shop Club has already started with the welcoming bottles of oil pre-shave, shave cream and cream post shave, they all identified with names that refer to their functions. So, we have, respectively, the Tony Little, Tony, Razor , and Vito Lull, used in that order they promise a smooth shave, close and without irritation!
I used the products from the Barber shop Club – which is actually a barber shop nice, with two addresses in Curitiba (PR) – for 3 weeks and I was very impressed with the results, and can affirm that the promises are met with praise, especially if we take into consideration the fact that many brands have turned to male grooming, with prices well above, can’t please me so much.
As I said, the products of the Barber Club are treated as characters, with catchphrases credited to each of them, the tag itself does not comes as a kit, preferring to call them “Powerful Trio”, perhaps a reference to the term “power trio” that designates a rock band with only 3 members.
