Return to 29 St. James's Street

Return to 29 St. James's Street After a hiatus of two years we are thrilled to once again be operating from our old shop at 29 St. James's Street. The shop has been expanded with a larger entrance and another window giving us a much greater presence on the street.

Product Of The Week - Week 5: Eucalyptus Shaving Cream

Product Of The Week - Week 5: Eucalyptus Shaving Cream A relatively new product of the week this week with Eucalyptus Shaving Cream. This was added to our shaving range in 2013 and has certainly been a welcome addition. The clean, medicinal scent of Eucalyptus and menthol is certainly envigorating for a morning shave, particularly in the summer months. The menthol gives a lovely fresh tingling feeling and the glycerin ensures a... more

Product Of The Week - Week 4: Lavender Soap

This week's selection for product of the week is another classic product: Lavender Soap. Fragranced with Old English Lavender, this is a truly classic bath-time staple. This is not an overly-floral lavender and is strong on spicy notes with a hint of rosemary which makes this an ideal choice for men and women alike.  Made in the UK and triple-milled, this is a high quality and long... more

Following in a similar vein from last week's selection of Moisture Cream, is another skincare product and a true D. R. Harris stalwart, Milk of Cucumber and Roses. This is one of our very oldest products, and whilst our archives are sadly quite scarce, we have found mentions of this going back over 125 years. Whilst the fresh combination of cucumbers and roses has always been present, the... more

Product Of The Week - Week 2: Moisture Cream

Product Of The Week - Week 2: Moisture Cream The importance of moisturising is not to be underestimated. Whether to extend the life of a tan in the summer or to keep the ravages of a cold British winter at arms length it is a year-round necessity. Using a good moisturiser on a regular basis not only makes the skin look better and more youthful, but can also make it feel much better. D. R. Harris Moisture Cream is unscented, rich enough... more

Product Of The Week - Week 1: Lemon and Vetiver Face Wash

Product Of The Week - Week 1: Lemon and Vetiver Face Wash Everybody knows you’re supposed to wash your face, but using normal hand or bath soaps could do more harm than good. The face has a slightly different balance of natural oils to the rest of the body and therefore requires a gentler, specifically designed soap or wash. It is not recommended to wash the face every day as you don’t want to lose the natural oils and dry your skin too much, but... more

2014 News and Progress As many will be aware, the latter half of 2013 involved some big changes for us and our local, regular customers.

It is probably fair to say that in the world of grooming and beauty products, differences in performance will always be fairly marginal. However, a good shaving brush, in conjunction with high quality soap or cream,... more
