beauty: the truman

harrys truman razor

I was so fed up with my old Schick Quattro razor.  It’s ugly, complicated; the head broke off every time it fell in the shower and the blades got dull fast.  It seemed like I was paying a lot for a crappy product.  I realized there are only 3 options at the drug store:  Schick, Gillette, and Bic– all equally gimmicky, ugly; each desperately trying to vie for your attention with loud colors, swirly patterns, and moisturizing strips.

I originally became curious about this Swedish hair care line after seeing it featured in all my favorite boutiques. Its uncomplicated minimalist packaging is really to die for. Really a beautiful product inside and out.
