Beard And ‘Stache Must Haves


Since going back to old school when it comes to shaving is a trend now (see our straight razor shaving guide), a great way to improve your shave is to use a badger hair shaving brush. It helps soften and raise the beard while gently exfoliating the skin in preparation for a close, comfortable shave.

Gently massage an aftershave gel onto the skin after shaving. It relieves redness and irritation that may show after shaving, especially in those with sensitive and reactive skin. Look for an after shave containing Panthenol, also called provitamin B5. It is a re-epithelising substance that also hydrates and nourishes.
