          I gave my dad this kit as a Christmas gift. My husband had received it last year and absolutely raves about the line. My dad said the products really made his skin feel good. He especially liked the pre-oil and aftershave.

          The kit is an awesome way to allow someone to sample the line first just in case they don't like it. The full size bottles are a bit of an investment. I would recommend this product for the special man in your life.

            Comments about The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Sandalwood Starter Kit:

            This is a nice little kit, good for what it's intended use is...

            HOWEVER, the included beard brush for applying lather is absolutely horrid smelling. This is the worst 'dead skunk' smell I have ever encountered. Rubbing the lather on your face is a chore due to the 'stink' you are waving right in fron to fyour face. Tried using the wifes makeup brush cleaning products, etc.. and it's still putrid. Find a quality brush if this is your preferred methos of applying lather.

            Comments about The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Sandalwood Starter Kit:

            The pre-shave oil is more like spreading tar on your face. The shaving brush smells awful especially once it gets wet -- more like rubbing a wet, dirty dog on your face. I've tried washing the brush with various cleaners, bleaching it, everything I can think of, but the smell remains. Enough to gag me.

                  This is actually the best choice, if you have to shave every day. There is a learning curve, in other words, it works best if used properly. Wet shaving with a brush and razor never felt so good using this Art of Shaving product. A few drops of the pre shave oil in the bowl, shave cream on the brush, hot water and thick rich lather that not only feels great, but conditions your skin after the shave. Great for travel, don't have to worry about the liquid restrictions at airports.
