Our Double Edge Safety Razor is a timeless shaving tool that provides a closer and more intimate shave than your space-age quadruple-bladed cyborg. But I mustache you a question: Do you really know how to get the most out of your razor?
The secret to a skin-friendly shave starts with proper preparation of the skin and whiskers. First clear your skin’s surface of dirt and debris with our Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser or Face Buff Energizing Scrub. Moisten the beard area and lather thoroughly using our Pure Performance Shave Brush with Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather or Beard Lube Conditioning Shave.
Before making initial contact with the skin, place the razor’s head against your face then slowly lower the razor handle to the proper 30-degree shaving angle. Going in slowly instead of just scraping away will help prevent nicks and cuts.
While shaving, focus on taking shorter, lighter strokes in the direction of the whisker growth. No added pressure is needed when shaving with our Double Edge Safety Razor. The weight of the tool is enough to properly remove whiskers without damaging skin. Focus on reducing hair versus removing hair with each stroke. This will allow for gentler pressure and less irritation.
Rinse the razor head both during and after shaving. Use both sides of the blade before rinsing for a faster shave. For best results, replace the blade after five shaves or about once a week.
No-Shave November ended and you’re ready to go back to that clean-cut look, so find yourself a Luxury Shave Set. It contains everything you need to get back into that daily morning routine—but with a little more class. It’ll make for a seamless and painless transition from no shaving to shaving.
