With the new year here, marking the start of a new decade, it may be the perfect time for new beginnings. Have you made your New Year’s resolutions list yet? Are you looking for a change that will help you live your best life?
One of your New Year’s resolutions should include taking better care of your skin. Many men typically don’t worry much about their skin. But some understand the importance of treating it with high-end products, especially when it comes to the face. After all, regular shaving can leave your skin looking and feeling dry if you don’t hydrate it properly. This is why you should use only the best shaving products, especially during the cold winter months.
Choosing something new can be overwhelming, as there is a plethora of products out there. That’s why we decided to help. Here are the top five men’s luxury shave products that will help you take care of your facial hair and treat your skin the way it deserves.
Perhaps you’re not used to using any pre-shave products, but they are necessary to prepare your skin for a shave perfectly.
The Pre-Shave by Castle Forbes is a water-soluble pre-shave product for all skin types. You don’t have to worry about it drying out your skin or leaving an oily residue that doesn’t mix well with water or your chosen shaving cream or gel.
This high-end product contains vitamin E, aloe vera, and chamomile extracts, all of which are excellent for your skin. It doesn’t contain oil, and it’s completely fragrance-free, so you don’t have to worry about it irritating your skin.
If you want to get a superior shave, you need to have the right shave set. The Czech & Speake Zebrano Wood Shave Set is one of the best sets you can get.
The high-quality, sustainable Zebrano wood is extremely strong and water-resistant. The brush features bristles made of Silvertip badger hair, and the razor features a Mach III blade for a truly superior shave.
If you are more old-school and want a sophisticated shave, go for a straight razor. There is truly nothing that can give you as close a shave as a straight razor.
The Dovo Pakkawood Handle Straight Razor comes with a 5/8" full hollow ground carbon steel blade for the closest cut possible. Pakkawood is strong and ultra-durable, and it can even complement the Zebrano Wood Shave Set if you don’t have time for a straight razor shave every day.
Shaving with a straight razor has a very steep learning curve. It takes time to master it, during which you may end up with a few nicks or cuts until you get the hang of it.
But this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. However, if you’re not experienced with a straight razor and don’t have the time to learn how to use it safely and correctly, there are always high-end barbershops like Merchant & Rhoades, where you can get a professional straight razor shave.
Castle Forbes Shaving Cream
Among Castle Forbes’ numerous luxury shaving products, there are several shaving creams you can choose from. The choice depends entirely on your personal preference, as the only difference among them is in the scent.
You can choose from cedarwood & sandalwood, lime, and lavender. Each contains pure essential oils that are antiseptic and soothe your skin. They hydrate your skin and help you have a close and comfortable shave.
The Floris No. 89 Conditioning Shaving Cream is another excellent shaving cream you can use. It’s ideal for sensitive skin, but you can benefit from it if you have another skin type as well.
It contains aloe vera that soothes your skin, and coconut and olive oils that keep your skin hydrated, enabling a smooth, close shave.
You will love its rich fragrance. Orange, bergamot, lavender, sandalwood, and spicy nutmeg are perfectly combined to create a classic and elegant scent worthy of a sophisticated gentleman.
