I’ve had facial hair for a good ten (maybe more) years at this point. Sometimes I trim it shorter. Sometimes, usually in the winter, I let it grow a little longer and bushier. But nonetheless, it’s always there. But just because you’ve got facial hair, doesn’t mean you don’t shave. I use a beard trimmer to keep it maintained and polished. Then I use a razor to shave my neck and edges of my beard. Doing this does a few things for me. My beard doesn’t grow in all that thick and can be a little patchy at times so keeping the edges maintained, and keeping my neck smooth, actually emphasizes the facial hair that I do have. Plus, creating that stark contrast between smooth and not smooth give it a nice refined line.
I recently got a very smooth shave using the system from Lab Series. Here’s the three steps that I found resulted in the smoothest shave:
- Use the Invigorating Face Scrub. It helps remove dead skin cells and get all of your coarse facial hair up and ready to be shaved. It’s been 4 days and my skin still feels smooth from it. The thing I loved about this scrub as opposed to others I’ve tried, was that it didn’t feel like it was scratching my skin. It was really gentle which was nice. As a result, my skin didn’t react by producing excess oil which can sometimes happen from harsh, rough exfoliants.
- Shave with the Cooling Shave Cream. The cooling effect is no joke. It left my skin feeling fresh and revitalized which was nice. And I noticed less redness after shaving than I typically do which is always a plus.
- Finish with the 3-in-1 Post-Shave. I finished my shave with this post-shave gel and it significantly cut down on my razor burn. I have super sensitive (and highly oily if you were interested) skin. This gel left my skin smooth and less irritated. Plus, I didn’t get any ingrown hairs and my skin didn’t have any negative reactions which is always a plus.
And their you have it. My new shaving routine. I can 100% assure you that my results were better than expected and, if I were you, I’d definitely consider looking into Lab Series. You shave a few times a week at minimum so it’s time to rethink how you do it. If you’ve got any questions, hit me up on Instagram!
