Classic Wet Shaving

Classic wet shaving requires a good shaving cream or soap to soften the beard hairs and prepare the skin for shaving.

For a really classic wet shave you must use a shaving brush to lather up the soap or cream. Then you apply the lather in a circular fashion to soften up the beard. This action also removes dead skin cells by exfoliation. A good lather will completely surround even the smallest hairs and help provide a truly close shave. Let’s take a look at the various choices.

Pre-shave cream

Pre-shave cream is not a necessity for a good shave, but it substantially reduces any irritation that you might feel during or after shaving. Pre-shave cream moisturizes your skin and helps lift the stubble to make your skin ready for the shave.

Shaving Soap

Shaving soap is an integral part of a classic wet shave and it dates back to the 19th century. Unfortunately, for the vast majority of shavers today, real shaving soap has been usurped by synthetic supermarket foam in a can, which we feel is a crying shame.

Real shaving soap contains a lot of fats that soften and lubricate your skin while shaving. It helps provide a close shave with less skin irritation. Shaving soaps vary in hardness from product to product and are most often sold in round bars. Proraso makes great shaving soaps that are slightly softer but they form a rich lather very quickly. Soap is always harder than shaving cream, but they both work basically in the same way.

Shaving Cream

Shaving cream operates largely in the same manner as shaving soap, but is somewhat easier to work with as it usually is dispensed from a tube. You can apply shaving cream with your hands or a shaving brush, although we strongly recommend a brush as it has all of the advantages previously mentioned.

Shaving Oil

Shaving oil is perfect for those with sensitive skin, because the oil both softens and moisturizes. Shaving oil is incredibly easy to use, just dab it on your face prior to shaving and let it penetrate your skin. Shaving oil will eliminate any annoying burning sensations that you may get after shaving.

Aftershave

After shaving, especially if you have not used any pre-shave cream or oil, your skin requires some kind of moisturizer to prevent skin irritation. A good aftershave will reduce the risk of red buds, beard plague and redness.

If you have sensitive skin or other skin issues, we always recommend the use of a completely neutral aftershave that does have perfume in it. The better alternative for problem skin would be an ordinary skin lotion or cream.
