Introduction to Wet Shaving

A well-groomed man knows the significance of a good shave. It's not just about removing unwanted hair—it's about indulging in a time-honoured ritual that speaks to the core of masculine grooming. The art of wet shaving, when done right, leaves the skin smooth, refreshed, and revitalised. But to achieve this, you need a brand that understands the finer points of this grooming tradition—a brand like Hawkins & Brimble.

The Hawkins & Brimble Difference

When Hawkins & Brimble was founded, it had a clear vision: to deliver superior grooming standards while making a positive impact on the planet. Inspired by the grooming standards of 17th century Mayfair's exclusive clubs, we've crafted a range of top-to-toe products that promise nothing less than the best.

Our products are a testament to our commitment to quality, sustainability, and education. We've infused our products with the finest natural ingredients and our iconic signature scent, ensuring a luxurious experience with every use. We believe that premium grooming should be the industry standard, and we're here to make it happen.

Essential Tools for Wet Shaving

The difference between a good shave and a great one lies in the products and tools you use. At Hawkins & Brimble, we offer a wide range of premium shaving products that not only ensure a close shave but also nourish your skin.

Shaving Cream and Shaving Foam

Our Hawkins & Brimble shaving cream is a class apart. They are thoughtfully formulated for sensitive skin, providing a smooth glide for the razor while minimising nicks and cuts. Unlike many other brands, we've ensured our products are free from harsh chemicals, protecting and nourishing your skin during and after the shave.

To use, dampen your skin with warm water and apply the cream or foam using our shaving brush. Not only will this create a rich lather, but it also prepares your skin and hair for the shave.

The Perfect Shaving Brush

The right shaving brush is a game-changer. Our synthetic shaving brush lifts the hair for a closer shave and exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation helps to prevent ingrown hairs and leaves your skin looking its best.

Using our shaving brush is simple. Wet it with warm water, swirl it in your shaving cream or foam, and then apply to your skin using circular motions. This helps to generate a luscious lather and preps your skin for the shave.

Safety Razor

Experience the difference a quality razor makes with our traditional safety razor. This razor delivers a close and precise shave, offering an experience that's unmatched with the Gillette Mach 3 blades.

For the best shave, hold the razor at a 30-degree angle to your skin. Take short, light strokes in the direction of hair growth. Remember, there's no need to apply pressure—the weight of the safety razor is sufficient.

After Shave Balm

After shaving, your skin needs care and hydration. That's where our aftershave balm comes in. It soothes and moisturises your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Apply a small amount of the balm to your skin after shaving, massaging it in until fully absorbed. It's the perfect finish to your shaving routine, leaving your skin soft, smooth, and ready to take on the day.

Post-Shave Skincare: The Essential Steps

Your grooming routine doesn't stop once the shave is over. Post-shave skincare is an integral part of maintaining a healthy, vibrant complexion. Let's delve into the steps you should take to care for your skin after shaving, featuring Hawkins & Brimble's top-notch natural products.

1. Soothing the Skin with After Shave

After shaving, your skin can often feel sensitive or irritated. That's where our Hawkins & Brimble aftershave balm steps in. It's formulated with the finest natural ingredients to soothe and hydrate your skin, reducing redness and discomfort. The soothing effect of our aftershave balm will leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised, making it an indispensable part of your post-shave routine.

2. Hydrating with a Quality Men's Moisturiser

Hydration is the key to keeping your skin looking its best. After shaving, your skin needs a boost of moisture to maintain its natural balance. Our men's moisturiser, packaged in environmentally-friendly glass, is the perfect solution. It's packed with natural ingredients that nourish and hydrate the skin, leaving it smooth, soft, and well-cared-for.

3. Regular Exfoliation with a Face Scrub

Regular exfoliation is crucial for maintaining healthy skin, especially for men who shave regularly. Exfoliating with a quality face scrub can help remove dead skin cells and prevent ingrown hairs. At Hawkins & Brimble, we offer a specially-formulated face scrub that's gentle on your skin, but tough on dirt and grime. It's the perfect addition to your skincare routine to keep your skin at its best post-shave.

From the moment you pick up your safety razor to the final application of our natural men's moisturiser, Hawkins & Brimble is here to guide you through the art of shaving and post-shave skincare. Our products are crafted with care and commitment, ensuring you enjoy a premium shaving experience while also doing your part for the planet.
