EvoShave - Fathers Day Gift Idea- * REVIEW*

Shaving is a daily chore for most of do , but it doesn't have to be one we put off! My husband Chris likes to think he can pull off a beard but to be very honest he really can't ! The whole family had to sit him down and tell him how much of a fool he looked. ** see photo ** So Thanks to his lovely new razor the beard was no more !! 

So when EvoShave got in touch asking if we wanted to review a fathers day designed razor i jumped at the chance. so if  your struggling for a last minute fathers day idea for him or looking for the perfect gift ides for the future. Evo Shave is a new concept razor that has a unique design, created to achieve a close shave with it’s smart designed Evogrip and dual edge cartridge, you can pick from a range of colours and even add images and text. We was sent the blue/green & Gray super dad design 

The idea is so simple behind the razor, The finger grip handle gives your more control and feel while shaving. Chris was very pleased with his overall shave using for the 1st time He did say that it felt strange on the 1st day as its a whole new way of holding the razor but as the days passed its become more and more natural and has reduced his overall shaving time. The bright colours and smart packaging make this an eye catching an fun product perfect for any man in your life. 

You can find out more about Evoshave by visiting the website and can be brought on line via eBay and amazon prices start from £4.99 for the single starter pack unto £24.99 for a pack of 3 handles and  x12 replacement blade packs, The single start packs comes with the single blade already fitted these can last for 2 weeks worth of shaving making them ideal for holiday use. 

Thank you to Evoshave for sending me these items to (make) Chris shave with, I will also be giving the other 2 starter packs to my dad & father in law as part of their fathers day gift. These items have been sent to me in exchange for this review but all views are that of my own.
