Do you have any skin concerns or allergies?
Sensitive skin and razor bumps. Allergic to heavily artificially scented products.
Spencer & Devon Shaving Cream is a product that is perfect for me due to the texture and main ingredients. This unscented version has a nice body to it as when I apply it to my face, I feel the weight of it is sufficient to protect my skin but it isn’t too heavy. The main ingredient is Aloe Vera which is a natural substance that is great for your skin. Additionally the razor glide motioned with ease against this product.
Purchase Price: $27.50

What are your tips for a clean shave?
The best way to open up your pores is with a hot shower or hot towel. Utilize a pre-shave oil on your face that will form a protective barrier between the blade and the skin. Apply the shaving cream in a circular motion to move your facial hair around and lift it up which will help your blade be more effective. Shave downwards to lower the hair and then lather again with shaving cream and shave upwards for a closer finish. Clean your face off with cold water and use some after shave balm to hydrate your face. Smile.
