THE BEST SHAVING & BEARD BITS
By Steven Potter, 12 May 2020
From growing out full bushy beards to trying out interesting ‘tache styles or even exploring a more indulgent grooming routine, lockdown life has had a big effect on our shaving habits. So, if you’re feeling adventurous, or you’re just on the hunt for a few more shaving treats, peep the four best products for nailing an at-home shave or beard upgrade below. It’s just like being back at the barber’s… kind of.
If you’re still close-shaving on the reg, a little pre-game can go a long way. This shaving oil from Mr Natty is best used straight after a hot shower when your pores are open. It hydrates the skin and softens facial hair for a smoother and more comfortable shave. Oh, and the refreshing peppermint fragrance is a bonus, too.
Apart from looking like it belongs on a construction site, this waterproof design from specialists Wahl is perfect for any in-shower shaves you might need to blast through. Flexible foils and interchangeable precision blades make close-shaving even more comfortable. Plus, it features a shock-proof design because, well, wet hands and shavers aren’t always the best combo.
Another post-shave saviour now from Murdock London. Ideal for sensitive skin, this silky-smooth balm cools and moisturises your skin with an anti-inflammatory formula – no razor burn for you, buddy!
If you've grown your beard out, firstly: congrats! Secondly, it doesn’t need to stop there, chaps. With a bushy beard comes a little more grooming responsibility. Step up House 99’s purifying beard scrub. Made with natural ingredients, like quinoa-seed extract, spirulina and ginger root, it cleans, conditions, and prevents both ingrown hairs and dandruff. A four-in-one winner, then. Happy shaving, lads.
