King of Shaves Shave Gel SuperCooling with refreshing Menthol is formulated to give you a superbly close and comfortable shave with no razor rash or unwanted irritation. Leaves skin smooth, supple and hydrated – not dry and tight. Ideal for sensitive skin.
PREPARE: Give your stubble a good wash and soak. Wet stubble is so much easier to cut, which means less tug and pull, less irritation and more comfort so shave during (or straight after) a warm bath or shower. Cleanse face first with quality face wash or gentle exfoliating scrub.
Tip: You can use a small amount of this Shave Gel as an effective pre-shave wash or beard shampoo.
Squeeze a generous amount of Shave Gel onto hand and then work the shave gel thoroughly into your beard, to ensure even coverage and to lift the stubble away from the skin. Pay particular attention to anywhere you get any shaving rash, remembering the bit of the shave prep that does all the work during your shave is the thin film-like barrier between your skin and the blade. A face full of lather may look great, however is it really helping, or is it just hiding you beard?
Tip: If you really can’t live without lather, squeeze some gel into the middle of a wet badger brush and lather away.
SHAVE: Using a clean sharp blade, shave carefully in the direction of hair growth taking care around the sensitive neck area. Take it slow and steady, rinsing the razor frequently to prevent clogging and to ensure you get the most bristles in a single pass. For heavy stubble or several days’ growth focus on short strokes and thorough rinsing. Shaving with the grain, in the direction hair grows, will reduce the tug and pull and lessen the chance of irritation. If closeness is a problem, try going across the grain (XTG) in a second pass.
Tip: Only a few missed bristles separate a good shave from a great shave. Use your finger tips to feel for any missed bristles before you finish and rinse.
PROTECT: After shaving, thoroughly rinse off with cool clean water as this helps close up the skin’s pores. Pat dry and protect skin immediately with a moisturiser or balm.
Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
