For many men, shaving is part of their daily routine. Waking up, taking a shower an glide the razor across your face like a pro. The shaving routine became such ongoing a part of our morning routines… and to be honest, we don’t really think about it. It happens automatically. Almost like driving a car. You don’t think about how, you just get in and drive.
If you are anything like me, changing my well tested routines, was really hard. I don’t like change, because I don’t know what I’ll get when I finally decide to change. Most people don’t like to change their habits, routines and in this case….their shaving soap. C’mon, be honest… you are using the same shaving foam, cream or gel for the past few years. Am I right? I get it. It’s just like that. You shake up the can, squeeze out the gel, work up a lather and off you go. Scraping off the beard stubble, rinse and you’re good to go.
Do you remember how your dad used to shave? He took the shaving brush, worked up a lather in a bowl and gently “painting the fence”. It was a lifestyle, back then. And he shaved with his face with a rich lather. It smelled great, right? An earthy fragrance, almost woody… masculine it would be. And he enjoyed it.
When I think back, shaving soap, a shaving brush and a safety razor was his tools. I thought it was kind of lame, because the new razors just looked so cool. It became the new norm…new shaving foams and gels flooded the market. And we were conditioned that all the ingredients in it will do wonders to the skin. Today, there are so many different razors on the market to choose from. And I must admit… I also use them. The cartridges are just so expensive, and I am busy looking at buying a good safety razor instead.
But, let’s get back to what we do…
Well, Bonti & Co took that trip down memory lane and created a great shaving soaps that will give you great satisfaction. The “old fashioned way” of shaving. Using shaving soap and a shaving brush in my daily shaving routine, became the highlight of my day. It is the first time ever, that I look forward to shave in the morning. It feels great, my skin feels better and I enjoy the whole process. I grab my soap and brush, work up a great lather by swirling my shaving brush over the soap, and then smear the rich, creamy goodness on your face. And boy, the razor glides effortlessly across those hard beard stubble, taking them down with no irritation.
Sounds nice, hey? Indeed it is.
Our soaps are manufactured by means of the cold process soap making. Naturals hard and soft oils combined, and scented with essential oils. The Bentonite clay in our soaps, ensure good lubrication, which give a great slip to the soap. You will experience a smooth shave and the razor will glide effortlessly across your beard stubble.
Our soaps are safe to use, contains no parabens or harsh chemicals. Pure goodness that will condition your skin, nourish it and make it feel soft and subtle.
Well, a great shaving soap should have the following qualities:
A good lather
Lubricating (a good “slip”)
Value for money (affordable)
And that is exactly what you will find in Bonti & Co’s shaving soaps. So, let’s have a look at our shaving soaps.
We have two shaving soap products available. Sandalwood and Lemongrass.
These two great smelling shaving soaps will take you back in time.
Sandalwood has a deep, woody scent. It smells like a mix of floral, rich, balsamic, soft, and sweet accents. It had been used in colognes and perfumes for may years and it became and iconic masculine scent.
Lemongrass essential oil has a fresh, citrusy scent. Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus, Cymbopogon flexuosus) is a tall grass that grows in tropical climates. This unique and invigorating fragrance will definitely wake up your senses. You can look forward to a great shaving experience that will make you feel refreshed and alive. We’ve added a touch of Grapefruit Essential Oil, just to add a little zing to this product. Lightly fragranced and not overpowering.
Great! Now how do I use it?
Your shaving routine is about to get really exciting. You will enjoy this so much and I can bet that you will look forward to your daily shave.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE AND SOME USEFUL TIPS
Preferably, try to take a warm shower before you shave. A warm shower will soften your beard, open up the pores and prepare your skin. This will result in a better shaving experience.
Rest your shaving brush (I recommend a good badger hair shaving brush) in warm water for a couple of minutes. Put it in a tub with warm water before you get into the shower.
Put your Bonti & Co Shaving Soap in a bowl, mug or any comfortable container. This will make lathering so much easier. I use a glass storage jar for this. There are many shaving bowls and options available, but they can be pricey.
Once you are ready for your shave, wet the shaving soap with a little bit of warm water and let it sit for half a minute or so. Now, pour out the water so that you have your soap ready to start lathering.
Take your shaving brush and shake out all the excess water. You want your brush wet, but not soppy. Remember that you now have to work up a thick, cream lather. Too much water will make it more difficult to achieve. Swirl your shaving brush over the soap with a quick movement of the wrist. Keep swirling and work up a good, thick, creamy lather. The soap will start to lather after a few seconds. Within a minute, you will have a great lather that will be enough for your shaving routine. The lather should be dense, thick and creamy. It will form pointy streaks that will not fall flat.
Apply the rich lather to your face and start shaving with a sharp razor. Any razor will work fine as long as it is sharp.
1) Take your first pass and shave with the grain of the hair growth. Rinse your face. Now….
2) Add more lather to your face and take a second pass, gently shave against the grain of your hair growth.
Well, this should already give you a very smooth and close shave.
Some guys prefer a 3rd pass, across the grain of the hair growth. But that is just a matter of preference.
Rinse your face with cooler water and dry.
Rinse your brush, shake off excess water and also clean your shaving soap.
