The Real Shaving Co. is a Somerset, UK, based brand right at the forefront of global male grooming, offering superior barbershop shave and skincare products, since 1953, for men wanting to look impeccably groomed. It all began by working alongside some of Britain’s finest barbers; in tandem they developed expert, professional products for men, who want the qualities of that barbershop shave but from the comfort of their own home.
To this day they still work with some of the leading technical experts to ensure their formulations are tip top. Manufactured in the heart of beautiful Somerset, the products combine modern quality formulations with decades of specialist shave expertise.
The collection is based around their three step system, which includes hardworking shave gels, creams and moisturising products for both normal and sensitive skin.
The brand believe it’s time you said goodbye to soap and water – traditional bar soap is rather harsh and tends to dry out the skin and relying on water won’t shift dirt, sweat and pollutants that your skin has been exposed to during everyday life. Say ‘hello’ to proper skincare and take a modern approach to cleansing and nourishing your skin. The vital cleansing process prepares the skin for the next stage by lifting the beard bristles, ensuring the face is smooth, soft, squeaky clean and ready for shaving. Traditionally, a barber does this with a hot towel but The Real Shaving Co. does it just as well and faster!
2 – SHAVE
Shave with success using step 2 products, which are formulated to be exceptional at one thing: helping remove unwanted hair from the face, efficiently. The collection is particularly good at helping to prevent cuts or razor burn, leaving skin feeling smooth, healthy and nourished. Prefer a cream to a gel, tube or aerosol? Or is skin sensitive and needs extra hydration? The Real Shaving Co. has a formula to suit your needs, lifting whiskers off the face, reducing friction and resulting in a smooth close shave, free from nicks.
3 – MAINTAIN
Even with the sharpest tools and the best preparation, shaving is hard on skin – and the outside world is tough on the just-shaved. Soothe, hydrate and replenish moisture with one of the step 3 products. If you’re worried about lines and wrinkles, try a product with Q10 technology for visibly younger, firmer looking skin or chose added SPF to provide daily sun protection. For those who like to keep it traditional, a post-shave balm will immediately calm discomfort or irritation from shaving.
However, two of our personal favourite products from the range are the Moisturising Shave Gel and the SPF 15 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser. The Moisturising Shave Gel – provides a protective barrier for ultimate razor glide and precision shaving, to help prevent nasty nicks, bumps and razor burn. Contains Seaweed Extract and Aloe Leaf Juice to help soothe and moisturise the driest of skin.
Whereas the SPF 15 Anti-Ageing Moisturiser is an award-winning advanced formula that defends against premature ageing and the effects of modern living with UVA and UVB filters. SPF15 protects the skin from daily sun damage, while anti-ageing Q10 technology targets wrinkles for visibly younger looking skin. Enriched with Cocoa Butter to soothe and condition the skin leaving an all important matte finish.
