Shaving; perhaps the first thing that half of the world does nearly every day. Although beards and mustaches are in trend these days, yet, for a few, starting a day without a nice shave, is a next to the impossible thing.
Please correct me if I am wrong until you are not religiously or culturally bound, you would prefer postponing a visit, instead of going there with an ugly looking face, full of cactus like thorns. Hundreds of shaving razors, shaving brushes, shaving creams, post shaving balms, and after shave lotions are available in the market. And, you cannot rely on every available product. Here, I am going to review loaded 5x traveler (complete shaving kit) – a product from spruce shave club.
The first impression is the last impression, they say. After receiving this product, I was very much impressed with its packing. I really liked the concept of additional cardboard support in the kit, to prevent any accidental squeezing of shaving gel or post shave balm tubes.
It was further providing the much-required safety to the other accessories. Full marks to the packing.
Items in the packing
Let me talk about the items that you will be getting. In the packing, you will be getting
- 1 traveler shaving kit
- 1 shave gel
- 1 post shave balm (50g)
- 1 spruce shaving brush
- 1 spruce razor handle
- 5x Cartridges (Pack of 4)
Before you order it online, you will be asked to choose your shaving gel. There are two options: first is – Tea Tree Oil & Aloe Vera shave gel and second is – Lemon & Ginger Shave Gel. However, you are free to order an extra shaving gel, but that is going to cost you extra. So, I ordered both.

Things I Liked In This Product
Never saw such a nice pouch with enough pockets to separate your items as required. Nicely made of durable waxed canvas fabric, this is a water-resistant pouch, hence, there is no chance of any spillage.
Shaving Gel & Post Shave Balm
I must say if you are after a shaving gel that not only gives you a lot of foam, even after applying as little as the size of a kidney bean, and extra refreshing fragrance; this is the deal for you.
Unlike other shaving creams, you don’t need to cover your face with the cream. I am quite satisfied with the shaving gel. Additionally, I really liked its lemon fragrance. Spruce Shaving Club! You successfully made me replace my existing shaving gel brand.
Aloe Vera balm; a highly required after shave balm that provides immediate relief. No more razor burning and irritations. Moreover, I don’t need to tell you about the miracles that Aloe Vera can do to your skin. Do I?
My first impression on seeing this razor was – “it looks like my existing shaving razor.” But, after using it, I realized the difference. Don’t judge a book by its cover, they say. This idiom was so true in this case.
Be it any brand, the main motive of every razor manufacturer is – offering extended flexibility to its user.
Before buying a razor, I always look for two things – complete control over the shaving experience and something that can make shaving unbelievably comfortable. This razor fulfills both my prerequisites.

I would like to start saying that these wonderful American blades with double coated edge and anti-clog design that makes rinsing and washing easy, are surprisingly priced; very much affordable.

Things I Disliked in This Product
Let me be honest with my review. There are three things that I disliked about this product.
The size of shaving razor
As compared to my existing razor, the spruce shaving club razor is little bigger in size, especially at the point, where you attach the blade. I personally faced a few difficulties in shaving mine under nose area.
I am a person with a hard beard and in the case of a shave, I cannot allow myself skipping a day. With my previous blades, even if I had to skip a day, I was never made to shave twice; one shave, and I was good to go. But, with spruce shaving cartridges, I experienced this difficulty; I had to shave twice a few areas on my face.
I might be facing these troubles because I am not yet very much handy with spruce shaving club razor. However, I am still using it; making myself expert with the razor.
Beauty is a very competitive industry and competitors are registering their products every single minute. I personally feel that an appropriate reduction in the price of this traveler kit is surely going to convert many more website visitors into prospective customers.
