I bought this 'starter kit' because it was the same price as most similar quality shaving brushes but included some extras.

I went through the various small tubes of pre-shave oil, shaving cream and moisturiser pretty quickly, but as the brush was the main thing I wanted, this wasn't really an issue.

Personally, I was in the process of upgrading all my shaving stuff, so didn't need to be convinced about what at first seems gimmicky - pre-shave oil, shaving cream - however, if you're not really sure about the benefits they will bring, this set would be a great way to find out at a relatively low cost. I absolutely recommend it.

Excellent quality product 1 April 2010
By Rosomax - Published on
Verified Purchase
Finally, a product I can use to soften my beard and minimize the irritation. For those wondering how this works (and I admit, I was quite ignorant and paid for with with many cuts and infections) is like this:
1) Shave after a hot shower (this opens up pores making it easier). Shaving removes a thin layer of skin, so having it "prepped" by hot water reduces chances of irritations
2) Use a little shaving oil and work it well in your cheeks & neck to soften the beard. It can also straighten curly hair, which will make it easier to catch with the blade.
3) Lather up on top of oil. This kit provides an excellent quality badger hair shaving brush. It lets you work the shaving cream nicely into your beard. Let the oil & cream "sit" there for a minute or two.
4) Always shave with a hot blade.
5) Wash face with cool water - this will cause the pores to close-up, minimizing the chance of infection.
6) Use after-shave balm right afterward, work it well into your skin. It dries almost instantaneously.

Remember, this kit is really a "trial-size", just look at the ml-count of the mini-jars. It actually makes a perfect travel set. The brush is small, but tough, the hairs don't fall out of it, it works just as well as its "big brother". The sandalwood scent is nice and unobtrusive. I prefer it to lavender, which to me is more of a "feminine" smell, don't know how else to describe it.

My guess is that this kit has been created in order to promote interest in the "Art of Shaving" line of products, causing the customers to invest in "full-size" versions. That being said, this set will last you a couple of months, making it a great introduction to the craft of good shaving.

Great product! 13 Jan. 2007

I wish I had found this kit years ago! Using all the steps in this kit has provided me with the smoothest shave and the least razor-burn/bumps I've ever had.

Best shaving system I've ever used. 19 Feb. 2011
By Erik Olson - Published on
Last year I received a full-sized set of the Art of Shaving products as a Christmas gift. I enjoy the shaving process now more than ever, and my face looks and feels better than it did after using various other creams, gels, and soaps. However, I wanted a travel-sized set to take along on local overnighters so I got this Starter Kit. The kit worked out well, especially since it introduced me to the benefits of the shaving brush.

Although I favor the AOS unscented line for sensitive skin, the Sandalwood set worked just fine for weekend usage during a recent weekend up in Seattle at a friend's house. The smell is masculine, pleasing, and not overpowering, plus the individual bottles are small enough to fit inside my kit bag. But the brush was the most pleasant surprise of the kit. It feels good on my face, and really maximizes the shaving cream by creating a thick lather out of a tiny dollop.

My sensitive skin and thick beard have forced me to try various shaving products over the years. Finally, in middle age I believe that I've found what I've been looking for in the Art of Shaving product line (see my other Amazon reviews of individual AOS products for more detail). The Starter Kit is an excellent and inexpensive way to see if the AOS line is right for you, and I encourage anyone looking for a better shaving experience to give it a try.

Puts a baby's bottom to shame 28 Jan. 2008
By Michael - Published on
I have a fairly thick beard that grows back pretty quickly. Also since I shave pretty often I figured I'd like to try to step up from the simple shave cream you pick up at Target and such. Also I use a Fusion razor.

All that being said, this starter set is a perfect option for those who want a lot more quality for their buck and don't want to pay for the full size kit yet. The badger brush alone makes this set worth it.

Onto the shave. It is fantastic. Hands down amazing. I think its a big part because of the preshave oil, but either way, it is excellent. I get far fewer nicks and razor burn after shaving and my face would put a baby's bottom to shame.

I am absolutely glad I picked up this kit.
