I haven’t been blogging much lately, but leave it to Harry’s to spark some inspiration and get me off the phone and in front of the computer. If you follow GGV on the blog, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know that being vegan is a lot more than just posting pics of food (even though we’re all guilty of it). One of my favorite hashtags to use on Twitter and Instagram is #CrueltyFree. It sends a really powerful message and, as advocates for animals, it is something vegans take very seriously. Veganism is about animal advocacy and incorporating it into all aspects of your life – not just what you eat. I say it in my tag line, “Food • Drinks • Clothes • Shoes • Grooming • All the in between”.
One of my favorite things to talk about is #GroomVegan and usually when I do, I’m talking about Harry’s. I first blogged about Harry’s back in 2013 and then again in 2014, when they were on the brink of their second birthday. I don’t get paid to talk about them, and the reason why I do so much is because of their commitment to keeping their shaving creams and moisturizers #Vegan & #CrueltyFree. I also promote them a lot because they’re blades and handles give me the best shave I have ever had. I can still remember buying my first Harry’s Truman set. I shot an email to a customer service rep, and within 8 minutes I had a response to my inquiry. The rep provided me with a list of the ingredients and a 100% guarantee that the ingredients in the shave cream were vegan, free from animal testing, parabens, sulfate and gluten!
For about 2 years, all of my handles have been cooped up in their original boxes all alone for no one to admire, myself especially. UNTIL NOW! If you haven’t heard already, Harry’s newest shaving accessory is a home for your handle. Harry’s Razor Stand combines the slick design, ingenuity and functionality that I’ve relied on for almost 3 years. The new stand is like a mini brick; a solid foundation for your razor handle so it stays out of box and on the counter top. It keeps your blades dry and your Harry’s handle collection on display.
I happen to think that the lumberjack beard is on its way out. Although I applaud you if you’re harboring any baby birds in there. Every animal deserves a good home. But if you’re not, it’s time to clean up your act. Shave smarter, shave closer and pick up a Harry’s shave set and don’t forget to get a home for your handle.
For anyone who’s wondering, Harry’s is…
