When it comes to shaving, it’s mostly a matter of preference if you use gel, foam or cream as part of your grooming ritual. I like using products that are high in emollients, so my razor glides easily along the skin. I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across this product by Molton Brown as cream wouldn’t be my first choice for shaving, but I have to say I’ve been sold.
Product name: Molton Brown for Men Skin-calm Shaving Cream
What it does: This shaving cream was created for gents with sensitive skin in mind. This luxurious shaving cream features barley extract to calm and prep the skin for grooming.
Results: One of the first things you’ll notice when applying this product is the divine fragrance. It’s masculine, warm and sophisticated. The scent features notes of mandarin, jasmine, violet, sandalwood and vanilla – this fragrance should be bottle! To my surprise, the cream applied easily and didn’t dry out. My razor glided smoothly without any drag that can lead to razor burn or irritated skin. The result was perfection. My skin felt soft and smooth without a hint of redness, and for someone who has sensitive skin such as myself, that’s hard to achieve. I didn’t suffer any nicks or cuts – that’s a bonus. A great product that I’ve been using for a few months now and I’m excited by it with each application. For me, it makes shaving enjoyable.
How to use: Massage this shaving cream generously into a wet beard before shaving. Shave in the direction of hair growth. Rinse and moisturise.
Skin Types: Can be used on all skin types; however, it’s been created for those with sensitive skin in mind.
