There is nothing better than running your hand over clean shaven, smooth skin. Men have been shaving for hundreds of years and even though shaving products have come a long way since the Victorian times, men still can experience a dissatisfying shave.

- Warm Water
Showering before shaving is a great idea, warm water helps open your pores and soften the hair to allow for a closer, smoother shave. However, if you don’t have time for a shower splashing warm water on your face is a good substitute.
Be sure to give your face a wash and a scrub before shaving as exfoliated skin allows the razor to get as close as possible to the base of the hairs. It also minimises ingrown hairs by gently breaking the first layer of skin and allowing the hair to grow correctly.
- Shave Oil
The Dear Barber Shave Oil is a unique, non-greasy combination of Almond, Grapeseed and Tea Tree Oils and has been created to soothe skin irritation and soften the bristles of regularly shaved hair. Our formula improves razor glide for a smoother finish.
A good shave has a lot to do with the razor you use. You need a good quality, well-balanced razor combined with a sharp blade in order to cut effectively and smoothly through your hairs.
- Shave Cream
The right cream or soap is also important. It should create a thick lather that softens your hairs, moisturises your skin and protects you from the sharp blades. Our Dear Barber Shave Cream helps soften your facial hair, giving you more control during your shave and reducing the risk of irritation. The exceptional blend of ingredients will calm, moisturise and hydrate your skin.
- Post Shave Balm
Aftershave balms and creams calm your face after shaving. A razor blade scrapes the top layer of your skin which can cause burning, itching and rash, particularly if you haven’t used a pre-shave cream. Our Dear Barber Post Shave Balm contains luxurious soothing, moisturising and hydrating properties that reduce skin irritation and tames razor burn. It is specially formulated with a combination of Aloe, Allantoin and Witch Hazel extracts to alleviate skin dryness and tone your skin.
