4 awesome new shave creams to help you save face

best new shave cream
As the weather warms, you may start to consider relieving your face of the hair you’ve amassed over the colder months. But rather than resorting to using some crappy foamy shaving cream that removes the moisture along with your stubble, leaving your face dry, tight and itchy as hell, it might be time to consider an upgrade. We rounded up five oils, lotions and creams that will prep and prime for subsequent shearing without any uncomfortable and unsightly after-effects of that cheap frothy stuff.

The Art of Shaving Eucalyptus Shaving Cream


Okay, so you’ll get the lather you love (not Ibiza foam party level but still frothy) with this formula but it’s also packed full of glycerin and essential oils so hydration happens at the same time. Also, the invigorating scent of Eucalyptus offers an eye-opening start to your morning.
