Instruction for Use:

The best moment to shave is in the morning, just after a shower and before breakfast: your hair, consisting mainly of keratin, are softer and easier to cut, and the skin of your face less fragile. Prepare your shaving foam by loading the brush with soap or shaving cream. Use of products called " shaving preparation " is twofold: it boosts hydration of the hair by removing its fat layer (sebum) and secondly, protects your skin from the aggression of the blade.
 

1/ With shaving soap: Your face is beforehand wet (ideally after a shower), quickly place your brush under warm water and lather the soap inside the bowl (without crushing the hair) until obtaining a thick and creamy lather. Apply it to your face in circular motions for a minute or two, the time to soften and straighten enough the hair from your beard.

2/ With shaving cream: Once your face prepared and the shaving brush moistened with warm water, put a small amount of cream on top of the brush and lather the face for one to two minutes as described above. Some users prefer to file directly a trace of cream on each cheek with the tube, then they emulsify it with the brush.

To maintain the quality of your shaving brush for many years, we recommend rinsing it well after each use to remove all traces of cream or soap and to drain it. Then rub it gently on a towel before putting it upside down on a suitable stand.
