Classic wet shaving with quality products, a double-edge safety razor & brush can transform a mundane task into a ritual you actually look forward to. Your face & wallet will thank you. After a small initial investment, you'll see significant savings compared to cartridges & canned goo. After a short learning curve, you'll be rewarded wilth superior results & a pleasant experience.
The keys to a great shave:
Prep: Cleanse the face properly before shaving (see 'Face' section). Glycerin soaps are excellent as a pre-shave facial soap. A pre-shave lotion or oil can be added for extra protection & improved glide.
Shave: Apply shaving soap or cream to damp face with a shaving brush. Work lather with brush to lift whiskers. Using a sharp razor at a ~30% angle, always shave with the grain on the first pass. Let the weight of the razor do the work, DO NOT apply pressure. Reapply water/lather & make a second pass across the grain. Although not always recommended for those with sensitive skin, if you still feel stubble, a final pass gently against the grain will make it BBS. Do not try this initially, let you face get acclimated to this type of shaving first.
Tone: We recommend you rinse your face with cold-water after shaving to tighten the pores. Tone, cool and calm; apply a toner or splash of aftershave.
Moisturize: Hydrate & protect with a moisturizing lotion or non-alcohol post-shave balm. Especially important in cold climates & for those with dry skin.
