The Art of Shaving®

Birchbox Breakdown

From Alexander the Great to McCauley Culkin, the act of shaving holds a special place in the Rites of Man. Keep the tradition alive with this quintessential kit, designed for the brand’s trademark four-step regimen. With ingredients you can pronounce, and a list of helpful tips, it won’t be long before you’re shaving like a maestro. Just add a razor, and a little manly gumption.

How it Works

Four distinct products mean four simple steps. The ritual starts with Pre-Shave Oil, which softens hair and opens pores for minimal irritation. Next up is a classic Shaving Cream, applied with a Badger Hair Brush, which lifts your beard for a close, smooth shave. After-Shave Balm completes the final step, pairing Shea Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil for soothing, all-day hydration. Choose between unscented and sandalwood versions for a shave that suits your style.

How to Use

Start by rubbing a small dab of Pre-Shave Oil on your hands, and massaging it into your beard. Without rinsing, use the Badger Hair Brush to apply a thick coat of Shaving Cream lather, then shave with the grain. If desired, re-lather and go against the grain for the closest possible shave. Round out the process with After-Shave Balm, which can be applied liberally to your face and neck.

Pre-Shave Oil Ingredients: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Leaf Oil, Fusanus Spicatus Wood Oil, Piper Nigrum (Pepper) Seed Oil, Water/Aqua, Eugenol, Farnesol, Limonene, Linalool

Shaving Cream Ingredients: Water/Aqua, Palmitic Acid, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut Acid, Glycerin, Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxide, Lauric Acid, Propyle

Highly Recommended

I have been using the Art of Shaving for about six years and it has done a fantastic job on reducing razor burn. The brush is a very high quality and the shaving cream lasts a long-time.

Great quality

I love the Art of Shaving products, and recently got into using pre-shave oil. It really helps after shaving off a beard that I've kept. Also great for when you need to shave every day. The brush included in this set will last some time, as long as you let it dry upside down.

Art of Shaving Lemon/Sandalwood

I have an Art of Shaving around my home. I enjoy the Lemon and Sandalwood shave soaps and aftershave balms. I am not a fan of their brush but the other products are very well produced and depending on your shave routine, can last quite awhile.

The sandalwood scent is amazing!

Bought this for my dad for Christmas. He was so pleased with it! He really liked the little old school nod with the shaving cream brush. The sandalwood smells so so good, that I wanted to use the oil on my wrists.

The Pefection of shaving

My husband loves quality and this kit is the epitome of quality! From the soft shaving brush that goes with the luscious cream, that smells good enough to eat plus the luscious texture, to the razor and the grand finale of manly aftershave. Plus all the tips, I bet there are a few I could have used in the days before I went the lazer route.
