At Gentleman’s Journal, we like to look sharp. So, as big advocates of proper grooming, there’s no sight more shudder-worthy in our eyes than a disposable plastic razor or tatty old toothbrush.
On the other hand, a bathroom cabinet bursting with fancy elixirs and exotic face creams may be a little much for the average gentleman. We know and accept that – but there’s a middle ground to be reached, and we’re here to help you get there one exfoliator, comb and razor at a time.
