Like so many things grooming-related, shaving has always been a chore. Perhaps its ubiquity in my routine annoys me, but wanting to appear well kempt takes effort and consistency (even designer stubble must be maintained). And so I shave – once every five days (I’m lucky in that respect). Yet the result was never quite right; Nicks and cuts, razor burn, irritation that would gradually subside, only to be replaced by a fresh round from the following shave. In short, shaving has put my face through the ringer.
The shaving brush came into my life about a year ago, and my world (by which I mean to say my skin) changed. You see shaving is a ritual, and understanding that preparation, quality tools, and carefully formulated products are integral to that ritual is key. A sharp blade is crucial – yes. But what a beautifully crafted, 100% badger hair shaving brush does that the simple slap of foam won’t, is lift facial hair away from skin while creating of luxe lather. The result? Your blade glides smoothly, slicing follicles with ease.
And so, in the spirit 0f achieving the perfect shave, I’ve teamed-up with Baxter of California to offer one MR E reader the chance to win the brand’s signature Shave 123 Kit. The kit includes a German-made Badger Brush, Baxter’s award-winning Super Close Shave Formula, and their anti-oxidant rich After Shave Balm.
