Make Shaving Not Suck

Print

This article by Shaving 101’s Mike Sandoval is featured in the July 2013 issue of Cigar Advisor Magazine. The article describes the problems with modern cartridge razors and aerosol creams, and why many men are caught in a vicious cycle of shaves that suck. Mike encourages men to go old school: use a double edge safety razor for a comfortable and enjoyable shave. He also describes the benefits of using a shaving brush to get a closer shave and softer skin. He also explains that traditional shaving is a fun hobby -- particularly for cigar enthusiasts -- because collecting tobacco accessories and shaving accessories are very similar with vintage and new gadgets, and products that are available in many different styles and scents. 

In the article, Mike writes:
Face it: You’re not 16 anymore. Maybe you have a respectable career (or are trying to get one) and you need to look like a grown up. You end your day with a good cigar, why do you start your day with something that sucks? It’s time to stop shaving like you did in high school. By changing the way you shave, you can look better and actually enjoy the way you start your mornings.

Mike says that by going old school, you’ll look better, feel better, and will actually look forward to your morning routine. Check out the article at CigarAdvisor.com.
