A generous mixture of glycerin, coconut oil and fragrant oils, The Art of Shaving Men Shaving Cream/Gel creates a rich, thick lather that moisturizes your skin as it softens your whiskers. Unlike most commercial shaving soaps, which contain harsh artificial additives which can dry out your skin, The Art of Shaving Men Shaving Cream/Gel is formulated to give you a smooth, comfortable shaving experience. It is mild enough to be used for a double shave – once with the whisker grain and then, re-lathered, again across or against the grain, for a close, smooth shave.
A close shave leaving a smooth skin is the ultimate goal for every shaving experience. Modern razors make the risk of nicks and cuts during shaving unlikely (although not impossible), but other dangers remain. Insufficient preparation of the whiskers and face can cause shaving to decline from smooth, steady strokes to a series of short tugs with the razor, fighting against recalcitrant whiskers. Improper shaving technique can result in razor rash or burn, or even ingrown hairs with their associated discomfort and potential infections. The Art of Shaving Men Shaving Cream/Gel provides a rich lather which allows whiskers to be easily cut, while making the dangerous practice of bearing down on the skin unnecessary.
Use hot water to create a warm, soothing lather. Apply lather from The Art of Shaving Cream Sandalwood with your fingers or, even better, The Art of Shaving Brush with pure badger hair. This lifts whiskers away from the skin and sets them up for a clean shave. In addition to the soothing lather, this cream also carries the warm, woodsy scent of sandalwood. The same cream is also available in other scents, such as The Art of Shaving Cream Lavender with a sweet, balsamic fragrance and The Art of Shaving Cream Lemon, which shares an aroma reminiscent of lemon peel. If you prefer, The Art of Shaving Cream Unscented is also available. The same glycerin and coconut formula is can also be found in The Art of Shaving Soap Refill, which comes in an elegant teak wood bowl.
