As part of their morning ritual, most men face the bathroom mirror each day and proceed with the process of shaving. How a person starts their day usually can dictate the course that the rest of their day will take. To the average slice of life male, who commonly doesn’t use top quality shaving products, this chore isn’t always enjoyable, and it can set the stage for a less than pleasing remainder of the day.
Not using first class shaving tools can cause bleeding nicks and cuts, razor burn and perhaps even a rough, undefined shave overall. About 90% of males however, endure this torture on a daily basis. On the other hand, the finer slice of life mentality creates a shaving utopia that not only sets your day off on the right foot but leaves you feeling on top of the world, totally refreshed and invigorated.
This male begins his shave with cool sandalwood pre-shave oil that makes the endangered hairs stand at attention. Next he picks up his black badger-tailed shaving brush and lathers on the Art of Shaving scented shaving cream. Removing his custom-weighted Gillette Fusion Power Razor with Pro-Glide blades from the matching Chrome Collection stand, he enjoys the smooth as silk swipes of the top quality razor as it glides across his skin. The icing on the cake is applying sandalwood after-shave balm to the face and neck, gazing at his reflection in the mirror and knowing this is going to be the best day of his life.
