3 Things Your Boss Expects You To Know About St James of London | The Stray Whisker

Posted by Con Kazantzidis on



Your boss expects you to know these things? Really?

Well, perhaps not so much to “know” these things, but to exhibit the benefits these products provide. 

Confidence, elegance and style!

What boss wouldn’t want those attributes in an employee?

We at The Stray Whisker are very proud to be associated with this quality brand that offers a whole range of grooming products suitable for all skin types.

Currently there a 5 great scents

  • Black Pepper & Lime
  • Mandarin & Patchouli
  • Sandalwood & Bergamot
  • Cedarwood & Clarysage, and for sensitive skin
  • Lavender & Geranium

There are 3 products in particular that I would like to draw your attention to. Products which I believe should be in every traditional wet shavers shaving cabinet.

1. Lavender & Geranium Shaving Cream in a glass jar

This shave cream offers an amazingly silky smooth shave making this daily ritual something to really look forward to.

The shave cream is elegantly packaged & presented in a beautiful heavy glass bowl with built-in lid seal to maintain freshness.The Lavender & Geranium is a shave cream made especially for those with sensitive skin. The lavender soothes while the geranium has both antibacterial and wound healing properties. It has been a long know fact that geranium also possesses astringent and haemostatic (speeds up blood coagulation) properties.

What's really cool is it’s also available in a travel friendly tube.

2. Black Pepper & Lime Post Shave Gel

This is an alcohol-free, super hydrating post-shave gel that leaves your face feeling soft and soothed immediately.The St James of London post-shave gels won’t leave a sticky residue and just a small amount is needed to go a long way.

Although designed to compliment the St James of London Black Pepper & Lime Shave Cream, this can be used as a post shave with any product.

3. Sandalwood & Bergamot Cologne

This is an alcohol-free, intoxicating cologne that contains castor oil and can be used as an aftershave as well as a cologne, and All St James of London Colognes are TSA approved.

With this scent, sandalwood & bergamot essential oils have been masterfully blended to create one of the most masculine fragrance combinations.

Scent Profile?

The St James of London range has vast appeal: perfect for the beginner - who will have a great experience - and also for the seasoned shaver, who will appreciate the luxury and classic scents.

Oh and your boss will love you for it as well!
