Shaving 101

Shaving has become like second nature to me. I could do it with my eyes closed, I'm sure you feel the same way! Here are some little tricks and tips to getting an even CLOSER shave.  Try these out and your sure to end up with super silky smooth gams! 

1. Shaving should be the last thing you do in the shower. After being in the shower for a while your skin will soften and your pores open up from the heat allowing for an extremely close shave! 

2. Using a good shaving lotion is key.  Conditioner is one of the favouritre things to use but I have a new found obsession! Beard Lube by Jack Black - it is actually a mens shave cream made with jojoba and eucalyptus sooo conditioning! This is what Jack Black has to say about the Lube... 

"An entirely new way to shave. Unlike traditional shaving foams and gels which can dry out skin, our award winning Beard Lube is a pre-shave oil, shave cream and facial skin treatment in one easy-to-use product specially formulated for men's shaving needs. 

The unique formula contains phospholipids - a rich source of essential fatty acids that are essential to the function of cell membranes - to bind moisture to the skin and support the natural skin barrier. The lightweight, penetrating formula not only helps prepare your beard by penetrating and softening whisker growth, it holds in moisture so your shaving blade glides easily. Refreshes skin, too, for an easier, smoother shave and less razor burn. 

The unique see-through texture lets you see where you're shaving, helping to prevent nicks and cuts--especially great for shaving side burns, moustache and head. Won't clog your blade, because it's super light and rinses easily." 

The price point is great too, around $18 and you only need a very small amount! 

3. To get a nice close shave try exfoliating before you shave.  Be sure not to use any oil based exfoliating scrubs - they tend to clog up the razor.  Use a buffing mitt or something oil free! 

Hop out and mix some of your favourite body butter with a dash of almond oil and you will be silky and smooth to the touch all day!
