Gentlemen are spoilt for choice when it comes to facial care and shaving essentials. We’ve certainly tried our fare share of products and Murdock London is genuinely a one-stop shop for men’s grooming products. From combs to cologne, the brand has everything to suit a Gent’s needs.

Over the last week, we have been putting some of the Murdock London products to the test, incorporating the shaving cream, beard oil and post shave balm into our daily routine.

Of the three products, the Shave was the highlight. Made with ingredients that include oils of primrose and borage, green tea and marshmallow, the cream strikes a fine balance as a pre-shave solution. Thicker than shaving soap without the layering of foam, the cream can be applied by hand or with the traditional shaving brush, and makes for a comforting, close shave complemented by a refreshing scent.

Like the shaving cream, the Post-Shave Balm uses the long-lasting, Avalon scent from Murdock London’s cologne. Menthol combined with anti inflammation agents remove stings and control bleeding from razor nicks. Meanwhile, with Argan and Jojoba oils, the beard oil is soothing and keeps the beard nourished without the dry, stiffness than can be experienced by some beard oils.

The price point of the products is just as good as the quality. The Shave Cream and Post-Shave Balm are both £34 while the Beard Oil is £28, cheaper than brands with comparable quality such as Penhaligon’s. Needless to say, we were very impressed the products we tried, earning Murdock London, the Gentry seal of approval.
