Hair Raising: Free Shave Swap Event

To honor a month of men’s health awareness (and experimental facial hair), we’re offering a FREE SHAVE SWAP throughout November in all Nordstrom stores.

Even if you’re trying out a dashing new follicular fashion like one of the gents above, you’ll still need to keep it clean around the edges. (We’re confident the guys at bottom-right are sporting an expertly tapered neck area under there somewhere.)

That’s where our FREE offer comes in handy: Just bring in your current shaving-product container (full, empty or in between) and we’ll replace it with a deluxe-size sample from Jack Black, The Art of Shaving, Kiehl’s or Lab Series—your choice.*

    Is this only for shaving *cream* or can we also bring in an empty shaving oil tube?

    Hi Dave, thanks for your question. Any shave-product container will be accepted, including your shaving oil tube.

    What is the size of the deluxe sample?

  • Justin, Blog Editor November 20, 2012, 5:54 am

    Hi Ire, thanks for your question.
    The offer is available while supplies last, and the sample sizes vary between the various brands participating—but to give you a general idea, Jack Black samples are 1.5 oz, The Art of Shaving samples are 1.0 oz, and Kiehl’s samples are 2.5 oz.
    Happy Shaving,

    Will the Nordstrom outlets honor this offer too?

  • Justin, Blog Editor November 28, 2012, 1:48 pm

    Hi Lucia, thanks for your question. The shave swap offer is valid only at our main Nordstrom stores, and not at Nordstrom Rack outlets.
