Our Men's Shaving Kits And What's To Come

Our Men's Shaving Kits And What's To Come

Over the last year, we’ve had the privilege of meeting thousands of amazing people at various conventions and shows. The enthusiasm and support we’ve received are hard to adequately thank everyone for, but we will try by continuing to offer superior service and amazing products. With all of that said, let’s talk about shaving kits, more specifically men’s shaving kits. 


We’ve heard loud and clear that you guys love our kits, but you’d like to be able to buy them in a retail store and take them home the same day. That’s actually why we’ve been a bit quiet. We’ve put our beard oil and shave soaps in more than 56 stores across the nation, but we know we have so much more work to do.

The challenge for us is to redesign our packaging, and figuring out exactly the best way to accomplish this. We think we have some really good ideas, and over the next several weeks and months you’ll see new products, new shaving kits, and maybe some other surprising announcements. Before we go too far down that path, let’s talk about why our shaving kits hold the esteem that they do, and what this growth will mean toward that.

We know that quality and price is the entire ballgame. We strive to offer excellent quality at a price the majority of men can actually afford. We will continue to do just that. We take tremendous pride in our scent profiles. Getting that tones just right is the magic of it all. You let that scent hit your nose and you already know. The KC Shave Co. brush once soaked and lathered offers an incredibly smooth and steady application without a ton of waste. The razors have a profound weight and just the right grip to give that impossibly close shave the cartridge razors will never achieve no matter how many blades and vibrators they want to add. Our men’s shaving kits are simple yet refreshing and impressive. We will continue to add to the legacy we’ve already created so don’t worry about a drop in quality.

We are looking at adding a shaving brush and shave soap shaving kit specifically for retailers. We think this will enable a lot of guys who are nervous about taking a leap with their razor to drop the foam in hand nonsense and try something better. As they realize that their skin is being moisturized and exfoliated and razors (even the not great ones) work better and the skin feels better afterward maybe we can get them to try a real razor. For us, it’s about trying to help guys look amazing, and it’s hard to do that if you have razor bumps or are constantly overgrown because your shave game is depressing. As we like to say, there is a fine line between looking handsome and homeless - we’re just trying to keep you guys on the right side of it.

The one thing we do love to hear is ideas and suggestions. If you have something in a shaving kit you want to see, let us know! We have played with the idea of including shaving towels, pre-shave, after-shave, etc. but it’s hard to pin down what you want so we’re not afraid to ask. What do you want to see in the store near you? Is it just the brushes and soaps? The minimal kit of the safety razor, shaving soap, and shaving brush? Do you want a full blown kit even though the price is a bit higher?

If you have an opinion send an email to sales@kcshaveco.com and add the subject line: Shave Kit Suggestion. Don’t be shy, we might even send you some freebies for helping us!
