Shaving Cocktails For Every Beard Type

HOW MIXING BRANDS CAN PRODUCE A LUXURIOUS SHAVE

 

We’re not encouraging you to have a few drinks prior to shaving. Alcohol, sharp blades, blurred vision. Ummm, yeaaah… not such a great idea.

Instead, we want to extol the virtues of “shaving cocktails,” formulas mixing different brands. We’ve been researching these recipes for years, mixing a dab of this and that to determine the product combinations that lead to the most comfortable shaves.

VERY SENSITIVE SKIN

Morning shave extracting more blood than a Red Cross drive? Razor burn, bumps and irritation a foregone conclusion? Fear not red-faced fellows, this simple lineup can get a guy going in the right direction.

 

  1. 1. Apply Grooming Lounge Beard Master Shave Oil to a warm, wet face.
  2. 2. Let oil absorb for 30 seconds and splash a little warm water on face.
  3. 3. Using circular motions, apply Jack Black Supreme Creme.
  4. 4. Shave, rinsing blade often and wetting oil/cream combo to reactivate where needed.
  5. 5. Post shave, rinse face with cold water and generously apply Grooming Lounge Best For Last Aftershave.

TIP: Should razor rash still rear its ugly head, let Urth Post-Shave Repair clean up the mess.

 

JAWS OF STEEL

Superior skin impervious to shaving snafus or mishaps? Face capable of taking a greater pounding than Leon Spinks? Treat that million-dollar mug right via the best products and a luxurious experience.

 

  1. 1. Apply Lab Series Shave Oil to a warm, wet face.
  2. 2. Let oil absorb for 30 seconds and splash a little warm water on face.
  3. 3. Using circular motions, apply Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream.
  4. 4. Shave away “Mr. Perfect Skin.”
  5. 5. Post shave, rinse face with cold water and apply Task Essential Stop Burning 02.

TIP: Speed up this perfect shave by mixing shave oil and cream together before applying to the face.

HEAVY GROWTH

Five o’clock shadow showing up around noon? Beard coming in thicker than Charlie Sheen’s rap sheet? Tough beards don’t stand a chance against this collection of creams and lotions.

 

  1. 1. Apply Anthony Logistics Pre Shave Oil to a warm, wet face.
  2. 2. Using a quality Shaving Brush, generously paint over that beard with Geo F. Trumper Shave Cream. Make certain both brush and cream are “wet.”
  3. 3. Shave away, making certain to rinse the blade often to rid it of your copious follicles.
  4. 4. Post shave, rinse face with cold water and apply Grooming Lounge Best For Last Afteshave.

TIP: Using your free hand to pull skin taut during each razor pass can aid in razor glide and chopping down stubborn stubble.

GOATEES & STACHES

Fu man chu? Handlebar? Soul patch? Mutton chops? Magnum P.I.? No matter the shape of the facial foliage, these proper products can make symmetry and style a snap.

 

  1. 1. Clean out the hair you want to keep with Bluebeards Original Beard Wash.
  2. 2. In your palm, combine a few squirts or Grooming Lounge Beard Master Shave Oil with a dollop of Zirh Shave Gel. Mix together and apply all over face.
  3. 3. Shave away, keeping mind of straight lines and shapes.
  4. 4. Post shave, rinse face with cold water and apply Grooming Lounge Best For Last Aftershave.

TIP: Before washing off shaving products, closely review facial hair designs from several angles to ensure symmetry and modify where needed.
