Our publishing deadline is here once again. More quickly this time around. As life becomes busier, hectic, and committed, options to slow down remain elusive. But one ritual can transport you for a few minutes: the morning shave.
A Barbasol man from ‘way back, gifted shave product traditionally sat unused. Tried once or twice, they usually seemed gooey or thick. Turns out I was not reading the directions. Premium shaving products contains more conditioners to position your beard and protect the skin. Unlike the much lighter Barbasol.
This morning with fresh blade, Harry’s Shave Cream brought me, for a few minutes, into a decadent salon. Natural oils pop with mildly astringent nose, along with conditioners which assist in Zamboni-smooth blade action across my weathered face. Harry’s CSR will not share their formula secrets except to list ingredients. Research as I may, the specific plant or tree oil which brings me to reorder Harry’s remains elusive. Unlike a perfect shave, which is now within my grasp.
The whole picture, via Harry’s SMT (social media team): Thanks so much for your interest in our products! To give you the whole picture: our blades and cartridges are engineered and manufactured in Germany using Swedish steel, our handles are made in China, and our shaving cream is developed at a really cool lab in New Jersey. Every Harry’s item is uniquely designed and produced, but we hope you’ll love them all equally.
Harry’s shipping boxes are of particular genius. Perfectly sized, sturdy, reusable. I turn’em inside out and load them up! Next project? Take an unpurposed box, unfold it flat, and have my nieces draw on it. Then reassemble. Voilà, first of the Harry’s Collectable Boxes. You will not know which edition you receive until your order arrives, with instructions: Kindly unpack your Harry’s premium shave gear for later use. Unfold this box to flat. Reassemble inside out. Fill your new Harry’s ART SERIES container with multi-generational treasures and enjoy!
