Here at Littlewoods, we have countless top-notch shavers for men. From get-the-job-done budget designs to more advanced models, there really is something for everyone. But no matter what equipment you’re armed with, men’s grooming is an art form that takes some practising. Take a look at some of our favourite products, then adopt our top tips into your morning routine for the perfect shave…
The BaByliss For Men 7056CU 8-in-1 All Over Grooming Kit is a professional-grade rechargeable trimmer, with four interchangeable cutting heads for total face and body trimming as well as grooming. There are also four comb guides which offer a variety of cutting lengths, and the convenient charging/storage stand is handy too. Alternatively, there’s our Wahl Titanium Clipper Gift Set which can also be stored easily in its case.
Our Remington HC5800 Pro Power Lithium Hair Clipper is another fantastic model thanks to its 1mm to 13mm length options. For something a bit more advanced, opt for the Philips SensoTouch 2D Gyroflex Shaver – the 360º pivoting head allows for exceptional contouring of your face, while the inward tilting shaver heads means it glides across your face to shave even the shortest of hairs with minimum irritation.
Now for some advice. First things first; allow your skin to adjust for a while. Facial skin can be puffy first thing in the morning, so it’s best to wait 20 minutes before any grooming takes place. On top of that, splash and clean your face with warm (not hot) water beforehand. When lathering on shaving cream, do so in a circular motion to ensure all hairs are seen to. Once you’ve got going, avoid razor burn by using slow and short strokes as opposed to quick, long ones. Another important thing to avoid is pushing down on your skin – you only need to press lightly thanks to modern technology.
On top of that you should always avoid aftershave, use sharp blades, incorporate Aloe Vera gel into your routine, and use a shaving brush. If you follow these rules, your experience will be a good one. If you still suffer with the odd nick or irritation, however, invest in our Murad range consisting of Murad Man Razor Burn Rescue, Murad Man Face Defense SPF 15 and Murad Man Cleansing Shave for a fantastic finish.
