Essential Products To Kick Start Your Shaving Kit

Looking to up your shave game? There’s a wealth of products out there specifically designed to help you get the closest, smoothest shave with the least irritation – and there’s more to it than buying the most expensive razor on the rack at your local supermarket. Building a nice, concise shaving kit is an opportunity to dive into a world of beautifully crafted razors and other shaving essentials…

 

Pre-Shave

You should prep your skin by cleansing and exfoliating in the shower before shaving to minimise the chance of ingrown hairs and help lift the beard for a closer, cleaner shave. You could also opt for a pre-shave oil for an added layer of protection from burn and irritation.

The Lather

A rich lather lubricates the skin and is the key to a closer shave. Instead of opting for a gel or foam, go for a high-quality cream that will suspend your facial hairs upright more effectively during your shave.

Muhle – Fine Badger Hair Shaving Brush | $90 | Buy: The Iconic

Application of your shaving cream with a badger hair brush is recommended to lather your face. Its hairs exfoliate, massage and lift your whiskers to ensure a more successful shave when the blade moves over them.
