DeckOut Series: Shaving done right
Shaving, when done right doesn’t have to be complicated. Let’s break it down for you.
Choosing the right equipment - one blade, 2 blades, 5?! What’s the difference between having more or less blades; having multiple blades may make cutting hair feel easier as of course it covers more surface area, however, it causes more blade friction which can irritate the skin causing redness and bumps! Now it may take some time to truly perfect the art of a safety razor, but once done – the closeness of the shave will be second to none which can never be replicated by other razors. Leaving your face as smooth as the day you were born.
Our recommendation would be MÜHLE Traditional Razor which provides safe, yet very close and precise shaving that even beginners can master with confidence. Saving the earth – one less shave cartridge at a time & saving your skin. You’ll thank me later, and the environment will thank you now.

To brush – or not to brush?
Having a shave brush may not be seen as a necessity to most – especially if you’re only shaving your face, however by spreading shave creams with a brush, you not only need to use less shave product as the brush helps to distribute cream more evenly and helps to soften hair, not only great for faces! While brushing your skin gets warmer opening up pores while gently exfoliating dead skin cells. Which in turn, gives the shave less blade friction as you wouldn’t be standing there fighting hairs off yourself.
