Shaving creams and shaving gels for wet shaving
Shaving cream is best lathered and applied with a shaving brush to allow a thorough yet gentle wet shave, even for sensitive skin types: the beard is saturated, softened and lifted.
The skin is protected and irritation, such as razor burn, skin cuts, redness, pimples and ingrown hairs, is effectively prevented. A quality shaving cream also nourishes, cares and prevents skin irritation by adding moisture while shaving.
Shaving gels are mostly of a clear consistency. They are applied with the hands and the degree of foaming achieved with shaving soap is not possible. A clear shaving gel is especially helpful for men with a beard; it allows them to see which areas are to be shaved and those where the hair is to remain untouched.
