My Shaving & SkinCare Routine with Baxter of California

September 20, 2015

This skincare is perfect for keeping your face hydrated clean cut & smooth, So lets be honest us guys are pretty rubbish when it comes to looking after our skin, we could probably take a tip or two off the girls. I have been making more of an effort  over the past year or two as I notice age is starting to show minor signs, I should probably try and keep as youthful as I can until I just embrace maturing into my later years.

The products featured are ideal for a shaving routine, shaving should be enjoyed by a gentleman not viewed as a chore, time and care should be taken, personally I have a groomed stubble so my wet shave areas only include the outline of my beard to create my desired shape, this doesn’t change the routine I follow, I am custom to using a cut throat razor which I enjoy and have to say has given me the tightest shave to date, Baxter of Califorina sent me out this stunning safety razor which is the same blade you would use in a disposable cut throat, it consists of a single blade shave with a guide to help prevent not illuminate risks of cutting the skin. It defiantly pairs measures up against the cut throat.

Now onto my routine I will try and keep this as short and simple for you guys so the bullet point stages below are probably the easiest form of running over it.

  • Pre shave I cleanse with the daily face wash using warm water & a muscling cloth I then apply the facial scrub using a circular motion working around the face and into my beard, washing off with warm water. This process helps clean and lift hair follicles  ready for stage two.
  • I then grab the lathering brush rinse with warm water and rub into the shaving creme pot in a circular motion to collect the product, apply to the areas being shaved by also circling  tight motions to foam up the creme. 
  • Once the shaving creme has been applied I take my razor and carefully shape my stubble with tight clean lines. This process and the stage above may be done a couple of times to really make sure all the hair has been removed.
  • finally I rinse off any excess shaving creme and apply some after shave lotion to hydrate, reduce irritation and condition, leaving my skin glowing and ready for the day/evening ahead.
