The Art of Shaving Starter Kit
Shaving is always a hot topic of conversation. Every man has a shaving routine, but a lot of guys shave their faces like their scrubbing leather. A man that wants to make sure he looks good after shaving will need the right tools. Finding a good razor is easy, but most guys cheap out on when it comes to shaving cream. Included in the Art of Shaving Starter Kit is 1 week’s worth of pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm, and a trial size badger shaving brush to keep your face feeling smooth. You’ll never rush a shave ever again.

Just tell your remote! The Fire TV Stick is dangerously addictive when paired with an Echo Dot. You’ll literally transform your home into a technophile’s paradise.
