*okay, so we can’t promise promise. But a reminder never hurt anyone, right?
For even better results, slough off any dead skin cells (they’re only holding you back) with a gentle exfoliator. This gives you a smooth base to start from.
Our Face Wash , doubles up as a cleanser and a gentle exfoliant. Sign us up.
Pro tip: shave during, or right after your shower. Clean face, supple skin, soft whiskers - heaven.
There’s no hard-and-fast rule here, but if the blades are starting to tug, swap the cartridge. This can help to reduce razor burn.
It sounds obvious but, in our opinion, quality Shave Gels and Creams can make a big difference between a smooth shave and, let’s be honest, a potential blood-bath.
Not sure if a Gel or a Cream is right for you? Luckily, we’ve done the leg work, right here.
After a couple of days’ growth, run your hands along your face. Really get to know the curvature of your jaw and neck; the direction in which the hair falls is an indication of your path to follow. Who are we to argue with biology?
Pro tip: for some people, facial hair grows in a number of different directions - sometimes switching up your angle may help.
Remember, we’re taking sharp blades to our face, so a light pressure is enough. Relax, lighten up and enjoy the glide.
Fancy sculpting? Whether you’re tidying up a magnificent beard, defining your mutton-chops or manoeuvring around your nose, using the precision trimmer on the flip-side of the cartridge will help. It’s the little things.
