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.
Art of Shaving Shaving Cream
If you're in the market for a rich, old world-feeling shaving cream, the Art of Shaving is the way to go. We like it scented with Lemon Essential Oil, which provides a fresh smell that's perfect for spring, and for waking you up. Maybe it's the abundance of glycerin – an ingredient used in high-quality soaps that brings on the moisture – and the essential oils, but with this stuff you'll get lather in abundance. We recommend putting that shaving brush to good use. [$25, artofshaving.com]
