“We’re so proud of this win and thrilled that the Sensitive Shave Gel Aerosol has been recognised for such a prestigious grooming award. The Real Shaving Co. is a small British brand and this recognition is really important, as it proves that a great shave with a high quality product doesn’t have to come at a premium cost’.

The Real Shaving Company became partners with Division 1 runners-up Somerset County Cricket Club earlier this year and its products are used and loved by the team. The winning shave gel is a particular favourite of former Somerset captain and England International Marcus Trescothick who said, “I used to suffer a lot with shaving rash and since I’ve had this it’s made a big difference.”
