The Gillette Guide to Choosing Shaving Products

The Gillette Guide to Choosing Shaving Products

With shaving foams, gels, balms and oils to choose from, it can be difficult to know which shaving products to buy.

Each type of shaving cream serves a different purpose, so here’s everything you need to know about when and why to use different shaving products for smooth skin, a healthy beard and comfortable shaves.

What Does Shaving Cream Do?

Shaving cream can refer to either shaving gel or shaving foam, and it should be applied to the face before shaving to soften facial hair and deliver a smoother razor glide for a more comfortable shave.

How to Use Shaving Cream

Simply squirt shaving cream directly onto the palm of your hand before applying it to your face, or use a shaving brush to help you to get even coverage across the surface you’re planning to shave.

How to Lather Shaving Cream

Working up a lather with your shaving foam or shaving gel helps to make sure your skin is protected while you shave. It’s easy to create a lather with a shaving brush, or simply rub the cream between your hands a few times before applying it to your face.

What Does Shaving Foam Do?

Shaving foams provide you with a light, instant lather thanks to their airy texture. They go on pretty thickly, so they’re easy to apply, and they’re quick to wash away too due to their lack of stickiness.

This makes shaving foam a good choice if you don’t have much time to get up, shaved, dressed and out of the door in the mornings.

Some shaving foams even come with extra protection for your skin, like our SkinGuard Men’s Sensitive Shaving Foam, which has been certified by the British Skin Foundation as suitable for sensitive skin.

What Does Shaving Gel Do?

Like shaving foams, shaving gels are also designed to be used during wet shaving to help reduce your risk of razor burnrazor bumps and ingrown hairs.

Shaving gels actually produce a slightly richer lather than foams, which means even more protection for your skin and enhanced razor glide for a smoother, more comfortable shave.

Gels tend to be thinner in consistency too, meaning they can spread across your face much more easily. At Gillette, you’ll find shaving gels for sensitive skin, gels that deliver a cooling shaving experience, and gels that team shaving with skincare.

What Does Shaving Oil Do?

Shaving oil is another alternative to a shaving foam or gel. It’s usually applied to the face before shaving for extra lubrication, with a shaving brush often used to ensure even coverage.

When to Use an Aftershave Balm

Using the right products after shaving is just as important as preparing your skin for the razor. A balm can soothe your skin to help stop razor burn from developing, leaving you with a smooth, comfortable finish.

Our Gillette Aftershave Balm is cooling, soothing and hydrating, making it perfect to use on skin that feels sensitive after shaving. A little bit of balm can go a long way, so you only need to apply a small amount at a time, which is why it’s so great for more sensitive skin.

When to Use a Post-Shave Moisturiser

The Gillette Aftershave Moisturiser works in a similar way to our aftershave balm, hydrating skin to help soothe it – however, if you have sensitive skin, the balm may be a little kinder to your skin.

Apply our Aftershave Moisturiser like you would any other lotion – ours even has SPF 15, so you’ll also be helping to protect your skin against sun damage when you use it as part of your post-shave routine.

What Does Beard Oil Do?

Using a beard oil can help to keep your facial hair in good condition so it can continue to grow healthily. It does this by nourishing your hair follicles, which can stop your beard hair from becoming brittle, and the skin on your face from becoming dry or flaky.

Apply beard oil after washing your facial hair – you should wash your beard as often as the hair on your head, using shampoo and conditioner.

Although you won’t need to use every kind of shaving product each time you shave, you should be using some form of shave prep and an aftershave product to help to keep your skin and your facial hair in the best possible condition, so you can carry on feeling like the best version of yourself.

Whether you’re shaving for the first time or you’re a seasoned shaving pro, we have some tips on how to get a smoother, more comfortable shave. Shaving should be simple — we do it almost every day — yet there’s endless debate about how to do it correctly. So, with that in mind, we took on the mental heavy lifting on behalf of men and came back with an eight-step guide on how to shave your face – simply and effectively.

Man washing face

Step 1: Hydrate

First, hydrate your face to help minimise nicks, cuts, and irritation while shaving. We recommend that you shave immediately after showering, or even in the shower. Hydrating softens your hair, allowing the razor to glide more easily. Use a face scrub or wash to remove oil, dirt, and dead skin, preparing your skin for a comfortable shave.

Apply shave cream

Step 2: Apply Shaving Cream

Apply a shave gel or foam – lather it up and spread it all over to help hydrate hairs, improve razor glide, and help protect against irritation such as shaving rash while you shave. Learn more about why you need shaving cream, and the differences between shave gels and foams.

Check for dull blades

Step 3: Check for Dull Blades

Before you begin your shave, be sure to check the lubrication strips. If they look faded or worn, or if the blades feel dull while shaving, it may be time for a new cartridge. See our guide on how to care for your razor.

Step 4: Use Light, Gentle Strokes

Use light, gentle strokes, letting your razor do the work. A heavy, or agressive, shaving technique is one of the biggest causes of razor bumps and shaving rash. And when it comes to getting a clean shave on the contours of your face, use a razor that has been designed to cover the hard-to-reach areas. The Gillette Fusion5™ ProShield is one razor designed to do just that. It has a a pivoting Flexball that adapts to the contours of your face.

Rinsing Gillette Fusion5 ProShield

Step 5: Rinse Your Blades Often

Rinse your blades often. Remember, don’t shave without shaving cream, or over-shave the same spot, as this can cause irritation. Tapping your razor against the sink can seriously damage the precisely engineered parts of your razor.

Shaving against the grain

Step 6: Shave Both With and Against the Grain

So, with or against the grain? The answer is both. Facial hair grows in many directions so you’ll shave both with and against the grain at different times in your routine. Shave in the direction that feels most comfortable. An advanced multi-blade razor like ProShield will help you get a comfortable shave even against the grain.

Trimming under nose

Step 7: Edge with the Precision Trimmer

Use the Precision Trimmer on the back any Fusion5 razor to get those hard-to-reach places like under your nose and to define your sideburns.

Apply moisturiser before or after shave

Step 8: Apply Moisturiser or Aftershave

Wash your face with cool water and pat it dry. Rub in a hydrating aftershave to replenish moisture and soothe your skin.

When you prepare your shave with Gillette foams and gels, you get a smooth shave while protecting your skin against irritation and discomfort. Whether it’s foam, which has a lighter consistency and rinses fast from the face, or a gel, which creates a rich consistency and creamy lather helping to create a moisture-rich barrier against the razor blades, preparing your shave with Gillette products takes your shave to the next level.
