F4F Reviews: Amazon.ca's Men's Grooming store

Amazon.ca opens new online Men's Grooming store for Canadian men

Amazon.ca now has a Men's Grooming Store!

By Adam (F4F)


If you're a lazy guy like me, and a cheap bastard when it comes to spending money on things like new disposable razors and new toothbrushes, you probably wouldn’t agree to test out the recently launched Men's Grooming store from Canada's top online retailer, Amazon.ca. But seeing as they offered me a gift credit to test out the site, how could I say no?

Now, I will admit, I'm a grocery store kinda guy. I take my 21-month-old son with me every Saturday morning to do the weekly grocery shopping for the family. I like the experience of walking down the aisles and filling up the cart at a slow leisurely pace. But I will also admit to keeping my shopping experience to the staples, as things like new razors and men's fragrances and skin care products and fancy shaving kits, although really cool, just seem so expensive to me in the store. 

Dove Men's Care Products available at Amazon.caBut that's the practical dad in me talking. The man in me likes to smell nice for my wife, and he likes to be clean shaven so his wife doesn't spurn his advances when he goes to kiss her, and he likes to floss his teeth so he can keep them so he and his son don't have to share the same oatmeal for breakfast every day. So if I can find a place that offers shaving and skin care and body and hair care and oral care products at a good price, I would certainly buy them more often. And if the experience was as easy as browsing from my couch, clicking on the products I want, and breezing through checkout and having them delivered to me in no time, I think that would actually be kind of cool.

So I checked out Amazon. ca’s Men's Grooming store, and it had some great stuff on there: great prices on electric shavers and toothbrushes, fancy shaving creams and hair waxes, shaving kits, disposable razors, colognes (see: men's fragrances), body wash and more. And they have all the big brand names you trust, like Dove and Waterpik and Braun and Polo and Hugo Boss. Heck, they even have dog cologne on there for those nights when your wife sends you to the couch for not showering before bed because you're too tired after your hockey game. 

There is some really great stuff on there, and it’s really easy to find, and even easier to shop for. I got lost looking at shaving kits (like my barber uses) that I would never even consider buying in the store because the price seemed to steep. But not here. The price was right and these are quality products. Heck, I found a nose hair trimmer for under 7 bucks. And I bought it! (It's for trimming fuzz off my old sweaters, and I'm sticking to that story).

I liked that prices seem to be marked down all the time and if you order certain items before a certain date, your shipping on it is free. And did I mention there's a lot of cool men's grooming tips too (see: manscaping).

Sorry, this is for those cool Canadian dudes (and dads) only. You know, those big burly lumber-jack looking guys who live in igloos and really need all the grooming help they can get (not really true).

Check it out. I loved it. And, I’m happy to say, I purchased that shaving set. In fact, it’s the first purchase I’ve ever made online that wasn’t for my wife, or kids.

Test it out, and let us know what you think. And look for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.ca's Men's Grooming store in an upcoming post.
