With The Grain


QUICK TIP

Guys tend to think that "shaving with the grain" means shaving either up or down. This is a misconception as each persons grain is different. Sometimes it can go sideways and sometimes it might change direction half way through.

To find it, take your index finger and run it through your beard area. If it's prickly, it's against the grain, if it's smooth, it's with the grain. Try it out, you may be surprised how your beard actually grows and you will find out how to shave with the grain in future.

Antioxidants


QUICK TIP

During the change of the seasons, your skin needs more protection from free radicals to avoid breakouts and blemishes. Look for shave creams infused with antioxidants such as white tea as these will detoxify and invigorate your skin.

Little Dab


QUICK TIP

Looking to extend the life of your products and still stay looking fresh?

You only need to apply a few drops of good pre-shave oil, and an almond-sized dab of premium shaving cream to your brush for the perfect shave. Not using too much means your quality products will last many months longer than any cheap oils or aerosol creams and you will save money in the long run.

Red & Pimply


QUICK TIP

You have a date tomorrow and all of a sudden you see your nose is red and a pimple is coming out the size of Mount Fujiyama.

Don't Panic, get out the Alum Block!

Before you retire for the evening wet the block, rub it on the affected areas and don't wash off the residue until the morning. The redness will be gone and the bacteria causing the pimple will have been neutralized by the power of the Alum.

Light Touch


QUICK TIP

Use a light touch when shaving to protect your skin and prevent nicks and irritation. A good razor is designed to be the perfect weight in your hand so you won't feel the need to press hard to get great results.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Cool Off!


QUICK TIP

After you shave and before you apply an after shave cream, rinse your face with cold water and pat dry with a soft towel. This will invigorate your skin and make it more receptive to the effects of the cream.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

After-Shave Creams


QUICK TIP

Did you know that after-shave creams are not just for your face?

These creams have natural hydrating properties, making them the perfect, year-round hand moisturizer. So the next time you apply some to your face after your shave, take an extra dab and rub some on your hands and arms. You will eliminate dryness, your skin will feel smooth, and the great scent won't hurt either.

Spring Shave


QUICK TIP

Did you let your beard grow during the winter months?

It is getting warmer and time to think about shaving, but as your beard is thick and somewhat dry, make sure to apply a more than usual amount of pre-shave oil so that your beard is soft and ready for the razor. This will ensure your beard won't get pulled off roughly and cause skin irritation.

Swapping Scents


QUICK TIP

Why not occasionally give your grooming regime a twist and randomly use different shaving creams and after shave scents. If you are attracted to a citrus fragrance, try a woodsy scent for a change, or use something fresh like Bergamot in the morning and splash something more subdued like an Oud in the evening.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Razor Bumps


QUICK TIP

Razor or shaving bumps are painful and quite ugly bumps on the skin. You can get rid of them by using a pre-shave oil and rub it where you shaved. This will aid the hair to come out straighter and healthier while also preventing razor burn and red dots caused by skin irritation.

Badger Brushes


ARTICLE

Silvertip Badger (left)

The highest quality shaving brush, the Silvertip is named for its natural, untrimmed silver ends of badger hair. It is a dense brush which retains heat well while providing a soft feel.

Fine Badger (middle)

A Fine badger brush provides a very rich lather and a soft feel on the face. Like the Silvertip it also retains heat well and provides a gentle exfoliation for many years of shaving.

Pure Badger (right)

A Pure badger brush is very durable and slightly courser brush than both the Silvertip and Fine brushes. It provides moderate heat retention and possesses excellent exfoliating properties due to its courser bristles.

After Shaving

QUICK TIP

Protecting your face is crucial. When done shaving, run a moist Alum block over the skin and place a cold towel over your face. This will tone the pores and cleanse the skin. Then gently massage some after shave to sooth the skin and leave your skin smooth and fresh.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Close Shave


QUICK TIP

To achieve a close and comfortable shave start by shaving the cheeks, then the chin, and finally the neck. Forget pressure and let the blade glide over prepared skin with the grain.

For stubborn hair, reapply shaving cream and repeat shaving in a sideways motion, using small strokes to further prevent irritation. Always remember, shave with the grain and use small strokes.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Multiple Blades


QUICK TIP

Multiple blade razors distribute pressure evenly and reduce the risk of skin irritation. The more blades there are, the more evenly the shaving force is distributed and the less pressure on the skin, which means less irritation and more comfort and results in a closer and smoother shave.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Pre-Shave Oils


QUICK TIP

Pre-shave oils are great at providing a smooth surface for your razor to glide on, so protecting against nicks and cuts. However, if your skin is prone to shave bumps and blemishes, or it gets irritated by after shave products, then use a drop of pre-shave oil AFTER your shave. You skin will thank you and it will feel smoother than ever.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Skin Protection


QUICK TIP

When should you apply a moisturizer to your face?

Wait about 10 minutes after you apply your after shave to allow it to absorb into the skin. Then apply a dab of moisturizer to both re-hydrate the face and provide all day sun protection.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Take a Stand


QUICK TIP

A shaving brush stand holds your brush upside down, keeping it dry and preventing mold and mildew from developing. This will extend your brush's life so it will continue looking fresh and perform well. Plus, a stand makes a stylish addition to any counter top.

π’₯π‘œπ’Άπ“ƒπ“ƒπ’Ά

Water, Water!


QUICK TIP

The key to a perfect shave is keeping your skin moist and soft; this allows the razor to glide smoothly across your face and minimize irritation. Shave after a shower to thoroughly wet your skin, and use a quality shaving cream preferably with a 100% badger-hair brush which is specially designed to retain moisture.
