Often shaving is just something that men endure. At RITUALS we aim to make a man's shaving and grooming routine into an experience that's a bit more enjoyable. This involves making sure the shaving products you use feel great and perform even better. You need to put effective and nurturing products into your personal care routine to leave your skin soft, refreshed and hydrated. Here are the essentials, from our exclusive men's collection, The Ritual of Samurai, for the best shave, plus a few tips on how to turn routine into a more rewarding ritual…
Start your shaving ritual by prepping the skin with facial scrub or face wash for men . The warm water will help open pores and soften the hair. Apply Magic Shave Cream or Shave Gel, both enriched with Japanese basil and ginseng for their calming and moisturising effect. Shave the hair growth and rinse the blade thoroughly between strokes ('blunt' razor blades are usually not blunt at all, just dirty from a buildup of soap and hair fragments). Rinse your face by splashing with cool water and pat dry – not rub – with a soft towel. Finish with our refreshing aftershave gel with aloe vera to reduce redness and irritation.
The Ritual of Samurai has a wealth of other great men's grooming and skincare products. Harnessing the power of pure plant extracts, these dermatologically tested, paraben-free formulas are also luxuriously packaged to look good in your bathroom or gym bag. Finish every shaving ritual by nourishing and protecting with the right face cream for your skin type. And don't overlook the lips – our pocket lip balm will keep lips soft and smooth wherever you go.
