Geo F Trumper Skin Food – A Legend of Shaving

First thing’s first, the name of this product; Geo F Trumper Skin Food. ‘Skin Food’ – have you heard anything like it before? Brilliant. There’s a good chance you will have heard of it. For Geo F Trumper is recognised as the finest traditional gentleman’s barbers and perfumers in London and has been since 1875. Trumper’s and their grooming products such as its world famous Skin Food have achieved no fewer than six Royal Warrants. If it’s good enough for Royalty it’s good enough for me.

The texture is perfect for application to the beard. It spreads easily, and quickly. A little goes a long way. And it feels great on the skin. However, best of all is the aroma. Each available option is fantastically scented and provides a real sense of pleasure when used each morning or whenever you shave.

How to Use

Trumper’s Skin Food lotion is available in three versions; Sandalwood, Extract of West Indian Limes and the winner, Coral. Each can be used as a pre-shave treatment to protect skin, soften and raise the beard before shaving. Just massage a small quantity into the beard, and then apply a shaving cream over the top of the Geo F Trumper Skin Food.

And also as a post-shave treatment for soothing and nourishing shaven skin. The results are fantastic, as well as feeling regal on application, the Glycerin rich formula makes shaving much less painful and afterwards the healing and sterilising antiseptic Rose Water (in the Coral version) perfectly soothed my skin.


Available from in a travel friendly 100ml and 200ml or 500ml plastic bottle at £15.00, £22.00 and £38.00 respectively. If you’re serious about shaving and want real results, look no further than time-honoured Geo F Trumper Skin Food. Use with the equally good Geo F Trumper Shaving Cream (link to product review).
