Many of us have problems when it comes to shaving. Do you know why? Because we have been shaving the wrong way since were kids!! Lets face it, we think we only need some sort of shaving razor, and a lubricant to protect the skin. However, if you get dry skin, or if you cut yourself too much, or if you get bumps or razor burn, there is a LOT to learn because believe it or not, that is not normal. Here are a few basic points to start getting more in touch with your inner-barber.



The first thing you need is a good razor !


Disposable razors are the worst because the blade tends to get dull almost immediately. If you use disposable razors, make sure you throw them away after each use (hence the name disposable).


Then there are the razors with disposable heads (e.g. Gillette Mach 3, Schick Quattro, or Gillette Fusion). The quality and sharpness of these blades is better than any of the disposable razors. If I was you, I would get one of these. It is important that you choose the one that makes you feel more comfortable when shaving and that has the right amount of blades for your type of skin and kind of facial hair.


Finally, for those of you that are knowledgeable enough and that are looking for a little thrill, there are also safety and straight edge razors. These can be a little bit more tricky and dangerous because you can cut yourself easier. So if you get one of these just make sure you get proper training.



After having chosen the proper razor, you need the right product to shave. This is when we all start running into trouble. Most people tend to use shaving creams and shaving gels that come in a can. That is the worst! Most of those shaving products have alcohol, which is one of the ingredients that tend to cause more problems. It dries your skin up and it closes and clogs the pores. To avoid these problems, I recommend you switch to a more gentle, alcohol free, shaving cream.


Most creams in the market are made as a paste. They are a step ahead of the stuff in the can but I am still not a fan of them. I find them too thick for the razors, so they clog them, and you need to shave with more pressure, therefore you still getting razor burn and irritation.


What I suggest is that you switch to a water activated, lathering shaving cream. Most lathering shaving creams require using a badger hair brush. The reason to use this kind of brush is that badger hair is the only hair that absorbs water and still keeps its shape and elasticity when wet. If you start using a badger hair brush, your skin and general feeling about shaving will change drastically.


The shaving brush will exfoliate and make your hair come out straight out from the pore so that you get a better, closer shave. Also, you will activate the cream with warm water, so when lathering, your pores will remain open. The consistency of the lather will be light enough so that it does not clog neither your razor nor your pores, but it will also be thick enough so that it gives you enough moisture and protection.


So now that I’ve told you how to use it to your advantage, get the right products and start experimenting in this journey to get the best shave ever!!!   You will LOVE IT !  And then you will wonder why no one told you all this before.


When Derek Jeter steps up to the plate, he has it.  When Barack Obama clears his throat for the State of the Union, he has it.  When Ernest Hemingway rolled up his sleeves to arm-wrestle a shark, he had it.




Confidence, along with skill and luck, is what sets apart winners and losers, the greats and the forgottens, the Hall-of-Famers and the also-rans.  You can’t do much to change your luck, and you can practice as much as you can, but when clutch time comes and you have any doubt in your mind that you can succeed, you have already lost.


Look at Don Draper.  When he is not dallying with beautiful women or drinking enough rye to incapacitate an elephant, he is absolutely tearing up boardrooms with his no-holds-barred, I-know-this-is-the-right-move-and-don’t-care-if-you-disagree ad pitches.  He has the confidence to succeed; everything else is just gravy.


But it’s not just world-class athletes and high-powered execs that need confidence.  Anyone who has been too nervous to talk to the pretty girl across the room knows the ignominy of self-doubt.  Anyone who has been intimidated by their boss’s perceived power and so accepted without a peep lower pay or humiliating working conditions knows it, too.


The question then becomes: How do you become confident?


Well, you can be uncannily successful at your profession, extremely attractive or witty, or develop a death wish.  These are, in order, next to impossible, impossible, and probably not a great idea.


But there is hope.  When you look good, you feel good.  That’s êShave’s founding philosophy, and something we strive to work towards every day.  We want our customers to be as happy with themselves as they are with our products.  And it all starts with a little ritual in the morning.


So go ahead.  Ask the girl out.  Demand a promotion.  Stand up for what you believe in.  You’ll be glad you did.


Just remember to shave first.


One of the most commonly neglected elements of any shaver’s arsenal is the stand.  Sure, you shell out the big bucks on a 100% silvertip badger-hair brush and a top-of-the-line, customized, monogrammed, handmade razor with a phoenix feather core.  You then buy the best all-natural shaving creams, pre-shave oils, and after-shave lotions, because your skin is far too important to be abused with dime-store brand aerosol cream.  Like a caveman.


But then, what do you do with those artisanal implements?  Do you give them the care and coddling such precision instruments need to reach their full potential?  Sure, you may keep your razor clean, change the blade regularly, and save it the indignation of coming in contact with your, ahem, downstairs brush.


And you think that you can keep your brush in good working order by shaking off excess water after each use and keeping it out of harm’s way, locked deep in a medicine cabinet or underneath a bathroom sink.  You tell yourself, “There, my little daughter won’t use my precious blaireau to apply makeup or anything like that.  And my son won’t use it to dust himself off when he comes in from the sandbox.  It’s the perfect plan!”


Although I appreciate your enthusiasm, I regret to inform you that you are missing a crucial element of brush maintenance.  See, simply shaking the brush doesn’t get it completely dry.  Badger hair, as you may know, is the only type of hair that absorbs and holds water, which is what makes it perfect for shaving.  The key to a close shave is getting warm water close to your skin, and 100% badger works better than boar, synthetic, and any other imitators on the market at that job.  So even if the tips of the bristles are dry, there may still be moisture lurking in the depths.


Keeping your brush dry is no less important to shavers than keeping gunpowder dry was to old-timey cowboys.  The little bit of moisture can become a breeding ground for all kinds of bacteria and fungi that will eat away at your brush, making the hair fall out and degenerating the tool long before its time.


So what, then, is the answer to this crisis of our times?  Do we as a nation have the fortitude and strength to overcome such heinous dangers?


We do.  We just crushed the rest of the world in the Olympics and landed a robot on Mars.  If that doesn’t eliminate the stereotype that Americans are fat and dumb, consider this: the êShave Shaving Stand.  Available in numerous designs, from the practical T Stand to the sleek and sexy S Stand, this marvel of engineering solves the basic problem of brush maintenance.


The key to all êShave stands is that they hold the brush upside down so that excess water drips off, leaving your brush high and dry.  This protects the brush from degradation and scum build-up; it works so well, I used it on my little sister’s new friends, and it got rid of them !


Of course, some people prefer the stands because they make a stylish addition to any shaving set.  These units have been designed to match our hand-crafted brushes, and if your girlfriend ever tried to teach you anything, it’s that it’s important to get things that match.  These êShave products look good, but you can make them look even better with a Shaving Stand.


 Shaving cream is one of those things you always think of just being there, like toothpaste and toilet paper.  It has become such a staple of modern life that you never take the time to consider what life could have been like before it.  But you know Julius Caesar didn’t have Crest White Strips, King Tut didn’t have Charmin Ultra Soft, and Alexander the Great certainly never used Barbasol to perfect that baby-faced visage apparent from all his statues.  But just our ancestors lacked these brands didn’t mean shaving was unknown (unless Mona Lisa simply never grew eyebrows).  Shaving cream has a long and colorful history, and knowing where it’s been may make you appreciate where it is now.


The earliest recorded use of shaving cream comes from Mesopotamia over four thousand years ago.  The Sumerians used animal fats and ashes from wood to create primitive soaps which they would apply to their beards before shaving, similar to the way fur was removed from animal hides.  As evidenced by the depilated domes and immaculately shaped facial hair of their sculptures, the ancient Egyptians were probably the first culture that took shaving seriously, and they used animal fats and oils as lubricants for bronze razors.  They saw beards as divine attributes of the gods, and although the pharaohs went clean shaven most of the time, they wore fake beards for ceremonial purposes.  Even female rulers like Hatshepsut followed this tradition, and while this practice may seem, today, objectively icky, at least we know what they used to keep their faces so clean.


Shaving creams remained essentially unchanged from the Romans to the Renaissance, with people using soaps to develop thick lathers on their beards.  Beards fell in and out of style in Europe, but by the 1700s, men and women were shaving their heads to fit under the popular powdered wigs of the time.  Around this time, some of the modern shaving implements, like the badger hair brush, began to appear, but it was not until the next century that shaving creams would evolve to a form recognizable today.


Soaps meant specifically for shaving started developing in England in the early part of the 19th century; in 1840, Vroom and Fowler’s Walnut Oil Military Shaving Soap became one of the first widely available foaming tablets on the market, likely due to its catchy name.  The thickness and luxuriance of the foam made it more useful for shaving than the simple soaps of before.  Also during this time, barber traditions took form which basically remain unchanged today.  Though we may no longer sport handlebar mustaches (a circumstance I lament terribly), we owe our knowledge of wet shaving to these early pioneers.


The 1900s saw tremendous advancements in shaving creams, but not all of them were for the better.  Burma-Shave, the first “brushless,” pre-lathered shaving cream, was introduced in America in 1925 and quickly grew popular for its convenience and famous rhyming billboards that lined the nation’s highways.  In the 1940s, as a result of wartime rationing, shaving creams took a step backward, lubricating without lathering, like the oils of old.  In addition, Jacob Schick invented the first practical electric shaver in 1923, a device that works dry with no lubrication or cream.  Although early models were somewhat clumsy and expensive, Schick sold millions and contributed to a decline in shaving cream sales across the board.


After the war, shaving cream suffered its toughest blow: aerosol spray cans.  First introduced in 1949, Americans chose the speed and ease of aerosol over the quality of traditional soaps and creams, despite the fact that the cans were much more expensive than their alternatives.  By the time Nixon took office, 65% of all shaving prep products sold in the US were aerosol cans, likely because of the mid-Sixties fascination with space-age technology (note: most of what I know of the 1960s comes from Star Trek).  As competition among companies grew, quality diminished to try to market the cheapest products, and Americans were mired in a wasteland of dry skin and razor burn.


But there was hope.  Beginning in the ‘70s and ‘80s, as EPA regulations and public sentiment turned the tide against polluting aerosol cans, many users began to turn back to old-style wet shaving.  Today, many companies offer quality products in the tradition of the old masters but with modern science and ingenuity to bring shaving creams to a level previously thought unthinkable.  Current wet shavers respect the classics and seek to emulate them with creams and soaps that combine the quality favored by their ancestors with centuries of learning and tinkering.  We may not have powdered wigs or fake beards, but our shaving needs are no less urgent than those who came before us, and shaving cream continues its march towards perfection.


We here at êShave are all about the clean shaved look.  We know the ladies go crazy for a little scruff, but we also know that if you really want to get close to someone, you need that mythical “baby-butt smooth” look that, despite having an objectively creepy sounding name, greatly facilitates face-to-face contact.  The best kind of contact.


But for those of us who are a little more rugged, adventurous, or hirsute, or for those who simply can’t be bothered to keep our faces clean all the time, we may want a beard.  That’s perfectly alright—some of history’s greatest heroes, from Paul Bunyan to Karl Marx—sported the old Rough Rider.  It is a symbol of manliness and power the world over.  Even in America, where facial hair has more or less fallen out of fashion, the beard still conjures up images of glory and adventure.  If you walk down the street with a true carpetface, people will think you are one of three things: lumberjack, professional hockey player making a deep playoff run, or Rick Ross.  Those are all good things to be.


This is all moot, however, if your hair creeps below the proper neckline, that event horizon of facial fur beyond which your hirsute pursuits transform from a perfectly acceptable look to that bane of freaks and shut-ins everywhere: the neckbeard.  Extensive scientific surveys have shown that the vast majority of women admit to either “liking” or “straight-up totally digging” scruff, and a sizeable portion report being “totes turned on” by a full beard, but in a study published in 2005 in the New England Journal of Medicine, a whopping 98% of women answered either “no,” “dear God, no,” or “get away from me with that clipboard” when asked if they would date a man with a neckbeard.


Unfortunately, I am more familiar with this plight than most.  Whenever I try to grow out some facial hair, I manage a few wisps on my chin and upper lip like a middle schooler, but the region from my underchin to my Adam’s apple becomes a vicious forest of curly hair and girl repellant.  As Hobbes said, the life of the neckbeard can only be described as solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.


Of course, this is to say nothing about the so-called “neckbeard culture.”  Over the past couple years, neckbeard has come to mean both the hairstyle itself and the group commonly associated with it.  As defines it, “neckbeard” is a “derogatory term for slovenly nerdy people who have no sense of hygiene or grooming. Often related to hobbies such as card gaming, video gaming, anime, et. al.”  Now, the purpose of this post is not to denigrate these pastimes or nerd culture in general.  People have their own interests, and that’s fine.  What this is meant to do is eliminate the scourge of the neckbeard, mostly so we don’t have to look at it anymore.


If you suffer from chronic neckbeard, there are two solutions: shave everything, or master the neckline.  The latter choice seems simple enough, but many people still make the classic mistake of shaving too close to the chin.  They think this will outline the chin, but really it just makes them look like they’ve got two.


To avoid such a fashion faux pas, follow these simple steps:


To find the outer most boundary of your beard, extend the line of your sideburns down and shave everything between it and your ears. The neckline should be about halfway between the edge of your chin and your jawline.  Imagine a gently curving line extending from the back of your right ear, down to the top of the neck below the jaw, and back up to your left ear. Connect the two lines and round off the corner.  You got yourself a neckline going!


A good beard requires regular upkeep: trim it at least every three days to keep it looking sharp and eliminate straggling hair.  Like a herd of buffalo, by eliminating the fringes, you make the pack stronger as a whole.


In the spirit of the upcoming Olympics, I encourage all of you to use this knowledge to make yourselves stronger, faster, and more effective in the hunt for ladies.


And for all you ladyfolk out there, be warned: a new swarm of artfully bearded men is on the prowl.  Gird your loins.


As you delve deeper into the world of wet shaving, the mysterious fauna—badgers, boars, Internet shaving geeks—and flora—palm, lavender, whatever sandalwood is—will make you wish you had the right weapon with which to defend yourself.  But if you are like the majority of Americans, you have been shaving with cruddy disposables that are worth little more than the garbage can where they inevitably end up.  These have low quality blades that can irritate skin, and their light, flimsy construction makes them difficult to wield with precision.  Most wet-shaving aficionados prefer either traditional safety razors or the straight razor, that symbol of the barber’s art.  However, the general public still remains woefully ill-informed about these tools and even the differences between them.


Simply put, a safety razor is any razor where only the cutting edge is exposed, with the rest covered to protect the skin.  This includes disposables and multi-blade cartridge razors, but when people today say “safety razor,” they usually refer to the old-style single- or double-edged ones you may have seen in old movies.  Cartridge razors, like the Gillette Fusion or the Schick Quattro, provide close shaves, but they may irritate skin because of the multiple cutting surfaces in contact with the skin, and as the number of blades rises ever upward, they are becoming more difficult to follow the contours of the face and offer an absolute perfect shave.  Not only that, but they are skyrocketing in price; it is common to spend upwards of three or four dollars per cartridge, not to mention to initial cost of the handle itself.


Double-edge safeties, on the other hand, are generally less expensive than cartridges (around $0.25 per blade) with less environmental impact (given that the only thing that ends up in the garbage is a single thin blade).  Proponents attest that, with just a little bit of practice, a “DE shave” is the closest shave available; it’s a trick to learn how to align the blade at the proper angle to the skin, but once this has been accomplished, the DE can cut in ways disposables simply cannot.


In addition, disposable-blade razors are said to be sharper then other types, if only because they can be thrown away when they become dull.  Novice users may find this dangerous, because despite their name, safety razors can still cut.  A high-quality shaving cream and proper shaving technique are generally enough to prevent most injuries, but care must be always be taken.  New users should remember to use very little pressure; one of the bad habits developed from using cheap disposables is the heavy pressure needed to pull the poor-quality blades over the skin, but doing so with a DE is a recipe for disaster.


Although safety razors have dominated since the turn of the century, some connoisseurs still choose the iconic straight.  Consisting of a single long blade which can fold into handles called “scales,” the “cutthroat” is effectively a safety razor with the safety turned off.  With such a sharp blade placed directly against the skin with no barrier but shaving cream, considerable skill is required to handle it effectively.  Whereas most people can wield a safety with precision after only a couple tries, users often need several months before they can get comparable smoothness out of a straight.  This often deters new users.


However, once the art has been mastered, many proponents claim it to be the most satisfying shaving experience, seeing it as “cooler” and more “old-school” than the alternatives.  One major drawback, though, is that it takes much more care to maintain a straight than a DE.  The straight razor must be stropped (passed back and forth along a leather strip to remove rust and restore smoothness) before each use and periodically honed to sharpen it.   In addition, it usually takes more time in the morning, which for busy or impatient people may be a major turn-off.  To avoid this, you can also buy straight razors with disposable blades like a safety.  Besides eliminating the need to strop and hone, this is also more sanitary, and for this reason, barbers are required to use disposable blades in barbershops in New York City and other urban areas.


Debate rages over whether the straight or safety razor provides the closest shave, but the truth is that either tool, handled with care and skill, can leave skin fantastically smooth.  Smoother than what you’ll get from a disposable, that’s for sure.  New users are attracted to the traditional, rugged feel of both tools, and it takes time and care before the true beauty can be revealed.  But for those who want the best shaving has to offer—and who want to finally understand the hyperboles with which enthusiasts sing praises—try a straight or safety razor shave.  You likely will never look back.


In recent years,  comedy writers and ornery belligerents have united in their distrust of “multi-blade shaving systems.”  These three-, four-, or five-blade razors strike many as unnecessary and increasingly ridiculous.  After all, shaving tools remained essentially unchanged since King Gillette’s first patent in 1904, and our  grandfathers were satisfied with their double-edged safety razors.  So when Gillette released their twin-bladed Trac II in 1971, complete with its claims of scientific efficiency, the product was derided as a cheap gimmick meant to reinvigorate a stagnant market.  As the number of blades grows, culminating today in Gillette’s 5-and-1 Fusion, how can modern users distinguish between the different brands?  The question remains: what difference does more than one blade make?


First, we have to look at what multi-blade razors don’t do.  The explanation from the razor companies that has appeared more or less unchanged for the last forty years is called hysteresis: The first blade is duller and pulls the hair up and slightly out of the follicle.  The second blade then slices it before it can retract, resulting in an exceptionally close shave.  You may recognize this from the dozens of animations in commercials touting these products.  The modern Schick Quattro (four blades), Schick Hydro (five), and Gillette Fusion (five, plus one in the back) purport to repeat this process twice, presumably to make sure the hair is extra cut.


Independent research in the ‘70s and ‘80s could not verify these claims, but that did little to stop the burgeoning razor wars.  The late ‘90s saw Gillette upping the ante with its Mach3, and the new millennium welcomed Schick’s counter, the Quattro.  Now, the two main five-blade combatants, the Fusion, released in 2006, and the Hydro, 2010, vie for our attention and wallets.  However, more and more dermatologists are recommending fewer blades to reduce skin irritation.  The Fusion addresses this issue by placing the blades closer together to flatten the skin and spread out the force applied to the razor, but for people with sensitive skin, five blades may still be too much.


By most accounts, shave quality is based on blade sharpness, not the number of blades.  If you don’t want to waste money throwing away the whole razor, disposable cartridges provide an easy way to keep your shave smooth.  The razor companies refuse to say what is the best time to change (claiming it is “too subjective” for each customer, with “subjective” here meaning “potentially profitable”), but the general consensus is five to seven shaves per cartridge.  The life can be extended by carefully drying the blades after each use, reducing corrosion caused by water.


And for those of you who think that a straight razor is the only way to get a professional quality shave, or if you have sworn vengeance on all of humanity for your mistreatment by a corrupt judge, remember that if you are not practiced in the art, your shave will be coarser with a much greater chance of nicks and razor burn.  They don’t call it a “cutthroat” for nothing.


So for the best shaving results, ditch the disposable in favor of a new, sharp cartridge, and while the exact number of blades is less important than the commercials would have you believe, more blades means less pressure is required, resulting in less razor burn and irritation.  Of course, a great shave requires more than a great razor: pros favor quality creams, brushes, and oils for the best results.  Check out for fantastic deals on everything you need to lose that unfortunate soul patch.


I have often wondered how the first man decided to use badger fur for shaving.  Who looked at a badger, didn’t mistake it for a skunk at first, and thought, “You know what?  I’m going to rub soap on my face with that thing.”


However it came about, I’m glad it did.  Badger hair has several unique properties which make it perfectly suited for shaving.  Most importantly, it is the only kind of fur that retains water, and keeping hot water close to the skin is the secret to a great shave.  It moistens and protects the skin and creates a richer, more luxuriant lather than fingers could alone.  The richer the lather, the less cream is needed and the smoother the shave will be.  And badger hair beats wannabes like boar hair or synthetic by being both softer and more resilient; a well-maintained badger brush will provide upwards of ten years of quality shaves, while boar or synthetic will fall apart and lose their softness after repeated use.


But the benefits don’t end there.  Badger brushes exfoliate dead skin cells from the face.  As a guy, I am always wary of traditionally feminine sounding skin-care terms, but exfoliation helps to leave skin feeling smoother and looking fresher.  The brush restores a youthful glow, especially helpful for older users.  Also, by removing dead skin, the brush exposes more of the hair follicle, allowing for a closer shave.  Your girlfriend may be onto something with all her talk of exfoliation.


As if that wasn’t enough, to get the closest shave possible, the brushing motion raises whiskers, exposing more of the shaft to the razor’s edge.  The thick lather helps to hold up the hairs while protecting the skin, meaning you only cut what you want to cut.  It’s like the ‘Lectric Shave commercials, without the horrifying implication of decapitating thousands of little hair clones.  On the contrary, applying shaving cream by hand tends to mat down hairs, meaning you have to use more pressure or—perish the thought—go against the grain with the razor to get the same closeness of shave.  Raising the hairs is one of the secrets of the perfect shave, so for best results, go badger or go home.


The first thing that turns men off from traditional shaving brushes is the price: why pay extra for a badger brush when you can get a synthetic for less than five dollars?  The badger may be more expensive initially, but if cared for correctly, it will save you loads of money in the long term.  You can use it for years, and because it requires just a small amount of shaving cream each time, you will save money on that as well.


Who would have thought that the badger held the key to the perfect shave? Maybe I’ve been to harsh on those innocent little critters…


Maybe dad didn’t tell you this, but one of the most important steps in shaving is to use a shaving brush made of Badger hair. Badger hair is the only type of hair that will retain water…and warm water is the secret to a great shave!
In order to obtain the best results from using a Badger Hair Shaving Brush, it’s important to fully understand the differences in the grade of bristles that are available.


The following are the three best types of badger hair from which to choose from:


Fine Badger Hair

Best suited for beginners. It offers all the benefits of the badger hair at an affordable price. Fine badger hair is a good quality hair that will soften with time.The hair is soft and elastic when it gets wet and provides the skin with a light exfoliation. It will remain in good condition between 3 to 5 years as long as you take care of it, which mainly means: hanging it upside down!

Finest Badger Hair

Best value for the money, the finest badger hair is a high quality hair that is hand assembled.This kind of hair is even more elastic, and thanks to the fact that it is finer, the seal that holds the hair will contain more badger hair in it, which means you will get a better exfoliation because now you have more, finer hairs going through your pores as you apply the cream. It will keep its shape between seven to ten years.

Silvertip Badger Hair

The must-have grooming tool for the serious shaver. This is the ultimate quality in badger hair. Silvertip badger hair is the softest and the most resistant hair. Silvertip brush heads are hand assembled and should last 15 to 20 years if you take care of it. . And it ends up being the best value.

Once you’ve selected your brush, be sure to treat and store it correctly. A high-quality shaving brush can last up to 10 years, as long as it is cared for properly. When using the brush, never apply pressure on the brush. After each shave, be sure to rinse the brush out completely, shake out the excess water, and store the brush with the bristles down to dry in an open space. Some brushes come with a string for proper storing or you can purchase a shaving stand.


Shaving doesn’t have to be a chore. If don’t correctly, you may even enjoy it. Here are our top tips for getting the smoothest, closest shave without irritation.


Preparation is king !  Be sure to shave after you shower or use warm water to thoroughly wet your face before shaving. Applying a warm, wet towel or washcloth to your face for a few minutes can also help soften your hair and open your pores. For men with very coarse whiskers, you may want to apply the hot towel a few times in succession to really loosen things up.


Protection is next. Since the shaving brush will bring the razor closer to your skin, you want to be sure the blades can easily glide over the skin. A high quality Pre Shave oil will have the right formulation so that it won’t cause you to break out or leave your skin feeling greasy. This will serve as an all-important barrier between your skin and the blades.


Application. A high-quality shaving brush is the most effective way to guarantee a smooth, painless shave. The bristles gently exfoliates the skin, which removes anything coming between your whiskers and the razor. As you sweep the brush in a circular motion over your face, the bristles lift the hair up and away from the skin allowing for the closest shave possible without common shaving issues such as razor burns and bumps.


Now that you’ve prepped your skin, you are ready for the blades. Always use a sharp blade and rinse it often. Begin by shaving in the direction of hair growth. For stubborn hair, reapply shaving cream and repeat shaving in sideways motion, using small strokes to prevent irritation. Around the neck area, where hair grows in different directions, run fingers along neck to feel and follow the pattern.


Don’t let all of that hard work go to waste. After you’ve shaved, you want to apply a light after shave lotion designed to penetrate your skin quickly and easily. A good after shave will regenerate cells after shaving and hydrate your skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.


If you do these simple steps, you are ready to face the day ! We guarantee it !
