Shave Cool For Summer
Recommended Shaving Creams & After Shave Lotions for Summertime
As the temperature begins to rise during the summer months, it gets hotter outside and inside the workplace. The more traditional wet shaving fragrances are not well suited to this hot weather, for example, Sandalwood, Spanish Leather, Coconut and Almond shaving creams are in our opinion, best suited to winter and autumn rather than summer. While, thick, protective after shave balms that are best used on a cold, frosty morning are going to leave your skin shiny and sweaty when the mercury rises.
There are shaving creams and after shave balms that are especially effective in the summer months. We have handpicked a selection below that will leave you cool and refreshed during the hot summer months.
Executive Shaving Natural Shaving Cream which is subtly infused with the refreshing scents of Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Bergamot, Juniper and Pine Needle is our top selling shaving cream, it's nice, cooling and all natural.
Taylors Peppermint Shaving Cream, good value for money and it lathers up easily. Nicely cooling on the skin with a pleasant but not overpowering minty scent.
Executive Shaving Fresh Mint Shaving Cream with Cooling Menthol. Very cooling, a blast of menthol, contains Shea Butter which delivers exceptional razor glide which in turn reduces razor burn and post-shave irritation.
An after shave lotion or balm should soothe cool and moisturise the skin, we have two in particular that are highly recommended for summer.
We highly rate Scottish Fine Soaps Thistle & Black Pepper After Shave Balm but it's not half as cooling as Fitjar Folgefonn Aftershave Cooling Gel, this is the one for me in the summer. Even in the heat of Spain in July last year it left me refreshed and cooled, it dries in almost instantly and leaves no oily residue on the face. Pleasingly it contains only natural products and it's suitable for all skin types.
Fine Accoutrements Snake Bite Aftershave Splashwhat I can absolutely confirm is that Snake Bite cools the skin like no other aftershave, it is wildly refreshing and invigorating. Snake Bite contains no fragrance other than a very mild menthol scent that dissipates after a few minutes, this means you can apply a favoured cologne and not have to worry about a clash of scents.
Stay cool in the summer heat! Get the right shaving cream and after shave lotions to look good, feel good and smell good too.
