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

An elevated shaving experience
Purchased

If you are looking for a way to upgrade your daily shave, this is the product set for you. The sandalwood scent reminds me of a classic barbershop. The pre-shave lather really does make all of the difference as far as facial nicks go. From start to finish this set really does elevate your morning shave from chore to enjoyment.

I got this for my husband and it really makes his face after shaving very smooth. I hope this product lasts a long time. If so, it would be worth buying again.

I love the sandlewood scent, it's classic. I bought this kit for my husband for Father's Day. We are familiar with the Art of Shaving products and he has used them before. Great quality and we are happy that we can order them from Birchbox.

Excellent Product!

I tried the travel size collection as a gift and was pleasantly surprised. I have sensitive skin and so continual issues from shaving. This pack makes shaving a bit more of an event than a quick things, but it feels great afterwards and my skin loves it. I was disappointed to see Birchbox drop the sample pack.

This made a great Father's Day gift. Smell of unseated reminds me of an old school barbershop. I love art of shaving products.

Excellent approach to shaving

I never realized that the mundane task of shaving oneself was an actual art form. Until I came across the Art of Shaving Store. The person I spoke with inside explained to me their 4 step approach to shaving and it all made sense.

I never realized the importance of conditioning the skin first or the benefits of using a badger hair brush to get a rich, thick lather to help stand the hairs up for optimal cutting.

This kit is the perfect size and you will be very pleased with the results.

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.
