From Tim Howard’s and Pirlo’s masterclasses in the World Cup to Russell Brands political exploits and Bradley Cooper’s Oscar selfie No matter where you have looked, neatly kept beards have been the order of day in 2014.
What is cornerstone?
Cornerstone is new men’s shaving brand offering a flexible, regular delivery of its razors and shaving products. It’s a simple, more convenient way for men to shave.
The journey begins at cornerstone.co.uk, where customers are asked two questions:
(i) How often do you shave?
(ii) Which products from the Cornerstone range would you like in your box?
Cornerstone uses these answers to suggest a regular delivery schedule tailored to the customer’s personal shaving routine. Before each scheduled delivery, the customer receives an email to alert them of their upcoming delivery, giving them the chance to change their product selection or the delivery schedule of their Cornerstone box, as well as allowing them to cancel or pause their plan at any time if they’re not ready for their next set of products.
The birth of cornerstone
Young entrepreneur Oliver Bridge launched Cornerstone in June 2014, having raised £175,000 from a group of angel investors and teamed up with leading packaging designers, dermatologists and web developers to bring the idea to life. Cornerstone was born out of Oliver’s personal frustrations with the discomfort and expensive nature of wet shaving – he felt that combining quality products with modern technology would be a powerful way to disrupt the men’s shaving market.
The product range
Pre-Shave Face Scrub – blended with volcanic sand and cedarwood to help release ingrowing hairs, reduce shaving spots, unblock pores and lift dead skin cells.
