Five Shaving Mistakes You Might Be Making

When done with the right tools and attention, shaving is an effective and easy way to remove hair from virtually any part of the body. After shaving, the skin should feel smooth, soft and calm. If you experience razor bumps, burn, ingrown hairs or any kind of inflammation, you may be doing it wrong. Below are five common shaving mistakes - and how to fix them.


Shave cream is essential in achieving a clean shave. It provides your razor with slip, glide and hydration, allowing it to seamlessly glide across the skin without undue pressure or force. Shaving is itself an act of physical exfoliation, so removing shave cream from the equation can create damage and micro trauma to your skin. Our SHAVE CREAM has been formulated with plant-based oils to cushion and nourish the skin.


Use a fresh razor blade to get the ultimate shave. A dull blade drags across the skin and requires you to go over the same area multiple times. This increases the risk of irritation and nicks. Razor blades can also be a breeding ground for bacteria, so change them often. We recommend replacing your REFILL BLADE after every 6-8 shaves. Five diamond-sharp and nickel-free stainless steel blades are enclosed in a moisturising vitamin E cushion.


We like to think of shaving as an opportunity for self-care rather than simply another task that needs to be ticked off the to-do list. Not only does this make it a more enjoyable experience, it also cultivates a better shave. Spend a little time opening up your hair follicles via the steam of your shower or warm water of your bath before going in with your RAZOR. Slow down when shaving, gliding the RAZOR with the direction of hair growth and then against it.


Exfoliating before shaving perfectly preps your skin and creates a smooth canvas. Use our BODY POLISH to delicately resurface the skin and clear out the pores, reducing the chance of ingrown hairs. Made with a considered blend of physical and chemical exfoliators, the BODY POLISH gently buffs the skin and also prevents your razor from becoming clogged with dead skin cells.


Add hydration back into your skin after shaving and soothe any potential irritation with our beautiful BODY MOISTURISER. Luxuriously nourishing and pH-balanced, it infuses the skin with naturally active ingredients. Squalane and niacinamide elevate moisture levels and provide vital nutrients to support the skin’s barrier function. An antioxidant-rich blend of honeysuckle extract, cloudberry oil, soybean oil and shea butter soothes and softens for a radiant glow.
