In the last few years I have done everything that I can to limit the pain of shaving. As you may have read in my other reviews about shavers and after shave lotions, I really will do anything to stop getting razor burn! I read somewhere that exfoliating prior to shaving helps to prevent razor burn as you are cleaning the skin of dirt and any built up grease. It is important to do this as if you do not you will not get as close a shave.
The Real Shaving Co face scrub is very good at cleaning your face and unblocking your skin's pores by removing dead skin cells. As mentioned, this will allow your razor blade to travel more smoothly over your face, thus ensuring a closer, more comfortable shave.
The Real Shaving Co website informs that their face scrub also contains natural cocoa butter to help prepare the skin for the shave. This is the prevailing smell of the scrub, which is not unpleasant.
I would advise using this product, as I have noticed a real difference since I started using it. My shaves are closer and more comfortable and definitely have less razor burn. I use this product and then shave a few minutes later after I feel my skin is ready for the shave! It does not take long to use and I only use it on the bits I shave, rather than on my whole face.
This scrub usually costs £5, but the whole range was recently on offer in tesco, two products for £5 which is great value.
