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.
Despite some preaching to the contrary, solid results can be achieved by applying a shave cream before a shave oil. Call us crazy ... but we'll occasionally sway from the shave-oil-first rule.
