There are literally hundreds of shaving products on the market today. Here is what you need to know to choose the right one...
1) Since the act of shaving is a violent one by its very nature (scrapping steel across your skin to cut stubble), you need a shave gel that will lubricate your skin effectively. Choose one that allows the razor to glide over your skin easily as this will inevitably reduce cuts and irritation caused by shaving. Matte For Men Antioxidant Shave Gel is "tops" at keeping your skin moisturized while shaving and even AFTER the shave is over. Cuts and nicks will be almost eliminated.
2) "Why choose a shave gel over a shave cream?" you ask. While this may be a matter of preference, shave creams are made up of mostly air so they can foam up while shave gels are much more concentrated. We have found shave gels to be more effective overall.
3) Look at the ingredients! Make sure you see "Glycerin" as one of them. Glycerin is a great lubricant and also helps your skin retain moisture. It is one of the key ingredients in our Antioxidant Shave Gel.
So in summary: look for a shave gel that moisturizes and lubricates while conditioning the skin. May sound obvious ... but most shave creams and gels on the market just don't do a very good job at these things (just ask your neck next time you look like Jack The Ripper got a hold of you), but we know one that does.
