The 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave

Improve your shave experience and enhance your shaving routine. 

Each step to the perfect shave is expertly crafted to achieve optimal shaving results while transforming the shave from a chore to a prized part of the morning ritual. 

How to Get the Perfect Shave

Use the shaving steps below, and you’ll find that your shaving experience is more rewarding than ever before. 


Before you shave, the first step you should follow is to prepare your skin so that you experience a close, comfortable shave. 

Our Pre-Shave Oil provides a protective barrier and improves razor glide. Always use hot water while shaving to soften the beard and open pores. For the best results, shave after or during a hot shower.

2 | LATHER UP   

Use a moisture-rich shaving cream to lubricate the skin and improve your shaving routine.
Apply The Art of Shaving Shaving Cream, formulated with glycerin for a close and comfortable shave. Use our Badger Shaving Brush to generate a rich, warm lather right on your face.

3 | SHAVE    

Now it’s time for the fun part: shaving! 

Dip a clean, sharp blade in hot water. Using gentle pressure, shave with the grain of your beard. Notice that the hair may grow in different directions. For a closer shave, re-lather and shave gently against the grain.


Now that you’ve finished shaving, it’s important to keep your skin looking its best and staying moisturized. 

After shaving, rinse with cold water and pat dry. Use The Art of Shaving After-Shave Balm, formulated with shea butter and jojoba oil to revitalize and soothe dry skin after shaving.
