Harry’s – Shave with Pride

I get so exited around Pride Month because some great retailers get behind the LGBT+ causes with gusto, and Harry’s is no exception. I was thrilled to get this through the post not only because their shave gel and razor is the best I have used to date – and I am very nearly run… Read more »
