+ Double Edge Safety Razor
+ One blade
1) The secret to the skin-friendly shave starts with proper preparation of the skin and whiskers. Ensure skin is clear of dirt and debris by using Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser or Face Buff Energizing Scrub. Moisten the beard area and lather thoroughly using the Jack Black Shave Brush with Supreme Cream Triple Cushion® or Beard Lube® Conditioning Shave.
2) Before making initial contact with the skin, place the razor perpendicular to the face, allowing the curved top of the razor head to come in contact with the skin. Then slowly lower the razor handle to the proper 30-degree shaving angle. This will help prevent nicks and cuts upon initial contact.
3) While shaving, focus on taking shorter, lighter strokes in the direction the whiskers grow.
No added pressure is needed when shaving with a double edge razor. The weight of the tool is ideal to properly remove whiskers without damaging the skin. Focus on reducing hair vs. removing hair with each stroke. This will allow for gentler pressure and less irritation.
4) Rinse the razor head as it becomes filled with debris and after shaving. Use both sides of the blade before rinsing for a faster shave. For best shaving results, replace the blade after 5 shaves or once a week.
