Hot Stuff

Billy Jealousy Hot Towel, $22

A pre-shave oil that recreates the feeling (and benefits) of a barber's hot towel. Once heated, apply your cream and shave.


Bliss Thermal Shaving Cream, $18

This lathering gel, heats on contact and conditions skin with aloe and (believe it or not) marshmallow.


Seasonal Shave

When the mercury dips, you break out the sweaters and throw another blanket on your bed. One thing you may not do is swap out your shaving cream. But you should. Between arid heat indoors and bone-chilling winds outside, winter's hell on your skin so make sure your morning shave is as comfortable, hydrating and friction-free as possible. Which is why we like Cremo Shave Cream, developed by a former model and the engineer who invented the dry erase board. Crafted in small batches in Santa Monica, CA, the rich bergamot-scented cream is both soothing and slippery. Unlike many high-end shaving soaps, it contans no glycerin, but rather moisturizes skin with macadamia seed oil, an organic oxygen compound and xylitol, which according to founder Kyle Schroeder, is found in Finnish Birch trees and makes a powerful conditioner that keeps skin quenched even in the harshest of conditions.
