Want to know more about how the brand can help enhance your shaving experience? The best shave is the one that went clean, smooth, painless and does not leave your skin dry. And it all boils down to the products and techniques you use before, during, and after shaving. Here’s how you can turn your usual routine into an artistic practice with the best in the game— The Art of Shaving. 

Step 1: Cleanse – The Art of Shaving, truly starts here!

Cleanse with warm water to open your pores and wash your face like you usually would. Cleansing is an essential step in any routine because it removes all the gunk and excess sebum from your face. It also preps your skin for all the products you will lather on later, allowing them to be absorbed well. Blocked pores on the other hand can lead to acne and even worse – ingrown hair!

Step 2: Scrub

Cleansing your face is not enough because sometimes there is deep-seated dirt that a single cleanse could not tackle. Pre-shave, make sure to follow up with a scrub so you can get rid of dead skin build-up as well as any remnants of dirt. It deeply cleans your pores and makes your skin smooth, so your razor can glide cleanly and effortlessly when you start shaving. Our best pick for this step is The Art of Shaving Peppermint Facial Scrub. It has Kaolin Clay that deeply cleans your pores and absorbs excess oil and sand-like exfoliating ingredients that remove dead skin cells and other impurities. We are also fans of the lavender and peppermint ingredients that give a warm, calming sensation.

Step 3: Pre-shave Oil

A pre-shave oil preps your skin and hair, so believe us when we tell you that this one is an important step. It conditions your skin and hair so you can shave without any razor burns, cuts, or irritation. The Art of Shaving Coriander Cordamom Pre-shave Oil gives you just that. With botanical extracts and pure essential oils, this oil is suitable for all beard types for an effortless clean shave in no time.

Both contain botanical extracts and pure essential oils that hydrate your skin and leave them smooth while protecting it from irritation and razor burns.

Step 5: After-shave Balm

It’s time to tighten your pores to prevent dirt and debris from entering and clogging them. After shaving, rinse your face with cold water and apply Sandalwood After-shave Balm to lock in all the moisture and soothe your skin after getting in contact with the razor. Now you’re all set and fresh!
