The inconvenience of the morning shaving routine is only made worse with cuts, skin irritation, and dryness. These are all signs that you have the wrong shaving equipment – a blade in need of changing, a bad aftershave, or, more likely, the wrong shaving cream. We dug through drug stores and barbershops to find the best creams, serums, and oils that will allow for a smooth, moisturizing shave for every kind of skin.
Aesop Morrocan Neroli Shaving Serum
If there's a problem with Aesop's Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum, it's that it smells so good you'll want to use it as soap. The combination of Sandalwood, Clove, and Neroli would make for a great cologne, and it's chock full of anti-inflammatories to keep your skin calm and prevent against redness and irritatation. The serum foams very lightly, but resist the urge to apply this stuff liberally – one or two pumps will do. [$37, aesop.com]
