To give this regimen some antiaging muscle, apply a small amount of Anthony Vitamin A Facial Treatment after shaving, but before moisturizing.

Anthony

Birchbox Breakdown

At times, the perfect shave can feel as elusive as fabled Atlantis. But while we don’t have a lead on the latter, we do have expertise when it comes to the former. Our choice is this four-in-one kit, which packs a star-studded lineup of Anthony shaving essentials. An aloe-infused cleanser leads the charge, while preshave oil, shave cream, and a soothing aftershave balm team up for close-cut perfection. You’ll find no myths in this landmark set—just tried-and-true skincare legends.

How it Works

This kit comes with four full-size products, handpicked to craft an exceptional morning shave. The cleanser pairs glycolic acid—a natural exfoliating agent—with antioxidant-saturated vitamins, plus calming aloe vera and calendula. The preshave oil and shave cream have peppermint and eucalyptus, which refresh tired skin while lifting and softening stubble. The shave cream also contains inflammation-reducing aloe vera, goldenseal, and hops. The aftershave taps allantoin to soothe skin, benzocaine to relieve razor burn, and an assortment of vitamins to nourish (A, C, and E). All four are bundled in a travel-ready dopp kit, a fitting companion for a groomer on the go.

How to Use

First, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of cleanser into your palm, and massage into damp skin for about 30 seconds, using gentle, circular motions. Rinse with warm water and pat dry, before rubbing a few drops of preshave oil into your beard. Layer a nickel-sized dollop of shave cream on top, then shave as usual. Rinse your face thoroughly with cold water, and follow with a nickel-sized dollop of aftershave.
