As a new member of the Hawkins & Brimble roster, The Grooming Gift Set caters for those of us guys, who groom! Which will cover a majority in some form or another! These products will add that little bit more luxury to the arduous shaving ritual that you have now mastered. Inside, comes one of our most popular products, the creamy and rich Shaving Cream, along with the Post-Shave Balm. Both products are inspired by the scent of Elemi & Ginseng.
Our Shaving Cream is the perfect remedy for a close, smooth shave. Our Cream will create a high quality lather and leaves the skin moisturised and soft after a good shave. We recommended using a high quality shaving brush with the cream, to ensure you get the most out of the product as it is designed. For the Post-Shave Balm, this nourishing blend of olive oil, almond oil and cocoa helps to appease irritation and redness, hydrating skin for a smooth and balanced complexion. Suitable for all skin types, it can be used daily as a moisturizer, as well as a post-shave treatment.
Olive oil will penetrate deep into the skin and provide a long-lasting shield of moisture to keep the skin smooth and supple. It is best applied to damp skin, when water can help reduce any feeling of greasiness.
Almond oil is a mild, hypoallergenic oil that can be safely used even on baby skin. In fact, it is the best massage oil for infants. When gently rubbed into the skin, it gets fully absorbed, making it suitable for after shaving and bathing application. Almond oil is light in texture, and can easily penetrate deep into the skin, softening and dislodging the dirt and debris accumulated in the skin pores and hair follicles. This prevents blackheads and acne. Thanks to the Vitamin A content in the oil, it may even help reduce acne flare-ups. For skin irritations, Almond oil is a better alternative to other chemically-lead creams. For one, you don’t have to worry about the chemical substances contained in commercial products irritating the skin further. Also, almond oil with its rich store of zinc is as good as any store-bought cream or lotion available.
Cocoa butter makes an excellent skin moisturizer, plus it does more than just hydrate the skin — it helps actually heal it from the inside out, too. It’s a great source of natural antioxidants, that are found in cocoa beans. Cocoa butter is also an emollient, which means it adds a protective layer of hydration to your skin.
How to Use
- For the Shaving Cream, soak the shaving brush with hot water.
- Using a circular motion, apply a small amount of Hawkins & Brimble shaving cream to the brush.
- The point is to retain the moisture in the brush so that it gets directly to your face to soften your beard hairs and open pores. So don’t tap too much excess water off the brush.
- Massage into your stubble using circular brush strokes for a smooth close shave.
- For the Post-Shave Balm, after shaving, apply a small amount to your face and gently massage in circular motions.
