eShave White Tea Shaving Cream

eShave White Tea Shaving Cream

Shaving is a necessary evil, but the proper products can go a long way in easing the bothersome process of scraping a razor across your face. While it costs a premium over generic shaving cream, you’ll only need to apply a dab of eShave shaving cream to enjoy a close, clean shave. Made with quality ingredients and antioxidants, eShave’s cream helps to open your pores and reduce irritation. We received a sample of their White Tea Shaving Cream and couldn’t be happier, but we do suggest using a brush to apply. Likewise, eShave also provides pre and after shave products for an even more enjoyable shave.

Especially with a winter like this one, cold weather can give your skin a beating.

Super simple to use and rich with with Vitamin E for healthy skin, we’ve been using the Primal Sapien lately – and definitely endorse it.

Brazilian Back DIY Hair Removal

Back hair. It’s an annoying reality of being a man and there’s no easy way to deal with. Brazilian Back aims to help by providing a fully do-it-yourself system that allows you to apply their hair-removing formula to your own back. While this product certainly makes things easier, we’re still envious of those guys out there without the hairy-back affliction!

eShave Men’s Eye Cream

We’re not saying every man should follow Patrick Bateman’s morning routine, but it doesn’t hurt us guys to take care of ourselves either. eShave recently came out with a new line of men’s skin products, including White Tea Eye Cream. Enriched with good stuff such as Vitamin E, the cream helps remove puffiness and tightens the skin around the eye. We’ve tried it and can attest that it’s definitely worth the extra five seconds it takes in the morning.

We wanted to share yet another cool Kickstarter project, the EDGUP, a simple grooming tool that allows you to trim up the back of your hair at home – by yourself. Perfect for cleaning up in-between haircuts, the EDGUP will keep you looking sharp without the extra trip to the barber. They also have a great pledging option for the Kickstarter (ending today, so hurry and check it out), which sends one EDGUP to you, and one to a US military veteran.

eShave Shaving Soap

eShave Shaving Soap

Admittedly, I was a little skeptical about “shaving soap” before I used it, but after eShave sent Frachelli their Lavender Shaving Soap Bowl my reservations were set to rest. The soap quickly lathered up when whisked with a shaving brush and allowed for a clean, close, and irritation-free shave. Plus, if you have the room to set it on your vanity, the nickel plated bowl also looks pretty swanky. $34 with the bowl, and available in two other scents (Mandarin, Avocado Oil & Linden).
