Review: Men's shaving, product reviews

I wanted to do this review, because there are so many beauty things out there for women to buy, but what about our boyfriends, fiances and husbands? They have needs too, especially when it comes to their faces. I know Nate hates having to shave every day because of how sensitive his face is. He gets awful razor burn and ingrown hairs. So I've set out to find him products that will help him. Here are a few of the things I have found, that he now loves using. Maybe this can help your DH (or even you).

C.O. Bigelow- Premium Shave Cream with Eucalyptus Oil:

~ Nate likes how this lathers up and that it is smooth and creamy. It has a great smell and leaves his skin feeling soft. You can find it in a 3oz size so it can be used as a carry on. You don't need a lot of it, which means you don't rush through it.

Shave Brush:

~ Having a shave brush might seem old and out dated, but it works wonders. It really gets the shave cream into a great lather, into hard to reach places, and messages the skin right before the shave.

Pre-shave Oil:

~ DH and I love this because it helps soften the hair before the shave. It also helps prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs. Plus it leave the face super soft and moisturized!

Razor Burn Repair:

~ Does exactly what it says. You use it right after the shave. DH likes it a lot, because razor burn is one of his biggest issues.

The Cool Fix:

~ This is a ingrown hair savior! While occasionally DH still gets ingrown hairs (probably because he forgets to use this), it works. HUGE bonus, us women can use it too! Works on the face, underarms, legs and bikini line!

Shave cream (for use with brush):

~ This is the line I started DH off on. It has a nice lather and works perfectly with a shave brush. DH has tried some other solid shave creams as well and so far this has been the best one we have found.

Blade Runner:

~ Just bought this for DH to try and so far he loves it. Might actually give the C.O. Bigelow a run for it's money. There is a good amount of oil in it, but by no means feels greasy. Also the bonus of a great smell!

Checks and Balances:

~ Both DH and I use this as our face cleaner. It's meant for people with dry and oily skin. It has a really nice, but unique lather. Out faces feel cleaner and tighter after use, but still soft.

I hope some of this might help your DH, or even yourself, because we all have borrowed a product (like a razor) from DH before!
