The Art of Shaving is a men’s skin care and shaving company that focuses on luxurious ingredients and traditional techniques. Their impeccable shaving oils, creams, soaps, cleansers, and moisturizers allow for the closest, easiest shave of your life.
The Art of Shaving’s 4-step shaving procedure includes the badger hair shaving brush, pre-shave oil, shaving cream, and aftershave balm. These steps have been tried and tested on all skin and beard types, and remove burns and bumps from the equation.
For the cleanest shave, you need to first prepare the skin, and the Art of Shaving Pre Shave Oil is the first key. Olive and castor oils soften facial hair, protects down to the follicles against razor burn and ingrown hairs, and lubricates the skin for a close shave. We’re happy to introduce the Middle Eastern-inspired Oud Pre Shave Oil. Oud is a gorgeous essence made from the agarwood tree which harmonizes with your skin to build a natural, amber-like scent.
Without question, our Sandalwood Shaving Cream is among our most popular items. Sandalwood is an incredible essential oil, with anti-inflammatory and disinfecting properties, highly prized qualities for shaving products. Made from the Indian sandalwood tree, the oil’s scent is masculine, woody, and warm and imparts a soft but long-lasting scent. Our shaving creams come in lemon, lavender, and ocean kelp, as well as Art of Shaving Unscented Shaving Cream. Not only will you get an impeccably close shave with all of our shaving creams, but the lather made from coconut oil and glycerin will keep your skin soft and supple long after the shave. This is best shaving cream for sensitive skin, we’re sure of it.
For the traditionalist, shaving soap offers a close wet-shave experience. Either during or immediately after a shower, use a wet badger shaving brush to lather the shaving soap bowl. Apply to your face and shave with the grain. If you’re looking for a perfectly close shave, apply another layer of soap lather and shave across the grain. We offer varieties like lemon, unscented, and sandalwood shaving soap, as well as refills for the handsome, handcrafted teak bowls they rest in.
The final step of shaving is often overlooked, when in fact it’s a highly important part of any shaving experience. If you have normal-to-oily skin, The Art of Shaving recommends using their After-Shave Lotion, which imparts a light and fast-absorbing. If you’re a dry skin sufferer, use the After-Shave Balm in sandalwood, lemon, lavender, Oud, and unscented varieties. With a touch of grapeseed oil in the formula, you’ll find your face replenished and rehydrated.
The Art of Shaving Kits
Whether you’re seeking a deep and earthy musk, a burst of citrus, a dusting of florals, or an unscented product, Art of Shaving kits offer superb quality and variety for every shaving experience. Our Art of Shaving Travel Kits provides one week of facial fundamentals like pre-shave oil, shaving cream, after-shave balm, and a trial-sized badger shaving brush. The Mid-Sized Kit comes in travel-friendly packaging. For the daily user, the Sandalwood Full Size Kit With Genuine Badger Brush is the perfect purchase. Lather, shave, and moisturize without fear of ingrown hairs, razor burn, or nicks. The Mid-Sized and Full Size Kit come with a genuine, handcrafted badger shaving brush.
If you’ve suffered from regular ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and dry skin after shaving, the solution is the Power Brush. Simply moisten your face, apply the Art of Shaving Pre Shave Gel, and lather with the Power Brush for 1-2 minutes. The Power Brush is also an incredible tool to exfoliate, and can be used with your favorite facial cleanser. Be sure to purchase refills when the bristles start to warp, in order to keep a clean, refreshed face. For a deep, tingly feeling, our best face cleanser is the Peppermint Facial Wash. We all know that shaving takes a lot out of your skin’s natural hydration, so reinfuse it with chamomile and aloe extract. Use in combination with your favorite daily moisturizer for smoother, hydrated skin.
If we had to pick, we’d choose the Eucalyptus SPF 15 Daily Facial Moisturizer as our favorite The non-greasy formula provides UV protection, as well as cooling eucalyptus and calming chamomile essential oils. Your post-shave skin will thank you for it, and your future self will thank you for the protection and hydration! Perhaps the weather has dried out your skin, or you’re still reeling from a sunburn. Maybe you just suffer from dry skin and need a bit more hydration. Let the Overnight Balm--with lavender and roman chamomile extracts--give you the protection your sensitive skin needs. With its alcohol-free formula, this moisturizer is chock full of shea butter, olive oil, and jojoba oil which nourish and revitalize your skin overnight.
You deserve a product that keeps beard hair soft, manageable, and moisturized, and regular shampoo just isn’t enough. With the Art of Shaving’s Peppermint Beard Wash, peppermint wakes your beard follicles up, while olive oil and jojoba seed oil encourage a full lather that rinses impurities away from all types of beards and facial hair.
