The traditional wet shave is a luxury most don’t get to experience every day, so if you’re thinking of treating yourself (or a loved one), the Murdock salon on Liberty’s lower ground floor is ideal. Andrea of Pretty Little London dropped in to experience a wet shave with a signature facial (£55).

“I had a luxury wet shave with a Murdock signature facial, at the suggestion of my barber Oliver. I’m originally from Italy and I’ve had quite a few wet shaves both there and here, and I always come out with a burning sensation on my skin. With the reputation Murdock has I was expecting not to have that feeling, and I can say I’m really satisfied because my skin feels soft, I don’t feel any irritation and I can’t see any either.

First Oliver trimmed my beard, then cleaned my face and softened my skin with a hot towel and some products. He kept the towel on my face for three minutes, then applied shaving foam and slowly shaved one side of my face then the other. I had told him my skin was sensitive so he was checking for irritation as he went. He then applied a cold towel, aloe vera and chamomile. The service was finished with a spritz of Murdock’s signature Avalon cologne.

I would definitely buy this experience as a gift; the salon is relaxing and it’s always a nice feeling when you have a shave! The products felt really good on my skin too and Oliver was great, informing me about each product so I would know what to go for if I bought them again.”
