Turn your morning routine into a black-tie affair with this sophisticated shave set from Van der Hagen. The shaving brush works to create a luxurious lather, and the razor is perfectly weighted to help shave whiskers with ease. Rest the brush on the lip of the shaving bowl between passes. The elegant metal stand holds both razor and brush.
How do I use it: Remove the unscented soap from its packaging and place in bowl. Wet your face with warm water and wet the brush. Rub the wet brush on the soap in a clock-wise rotation for about 30 seconds to load it with soap. Apply the brush on your face and massage the soap through whiskers.
Unscrew the head of the three-piece razor and place a blade on it. Screw the head back on the razor handle.
Place the razor at a 30-degree angle on your face and using short strokes, shave with the grain. Make sure you let the weight of the razor do the job. Do not press the blade against your skin. Rinse the razor every few strokes to ensure it does not get clogged. After the first pass, rinse your face and apply the soap a second time. Shave toward the grain and any areas you may have missed the first time. Rinse your face and the brush.
