If you’re like most guys (close to 8 out of 10) then shaving hasn’t exactly been the best experience. Whether you shave daily or just trim for maintenance, chances are you’ve got at least some form of irritation after the blade hits your face or neck. You know a good shave when you feel one, so wouldn’t it be great to actually enjoy the process… every time?
Everyone’s skin is different and reacts in different ways, whether you’re going for a clean shave or detailing your facial hair. You don’t necessarily need to have sensitive skin to experience some issues. But when an issue does appear, it usually rears its ugly head in three ways.
Razor rash/burn: Skin irritation that happens soon after an area has been shaved, with a stinging/burning sensation and redness (or even swelling) in the affected area.
Razor burn is commonly associated with men who shave their faces frequently.
In-grown hairs: Post-shave, re-growth or stubble gets trapped underneath the skin. When that happens, you start to see discoloration, inflammation and pain to the touch in the irritated area.
Razor bumps aka pseudofollicultis barbae (we're convinced it's Latin for painful and annoying). They usually appear as clusters of small, red, or dark bumps around the hair follicles and result from hairs growing back and piercing another area of the skin post-shave (not cool).
We’ve been right where you are: in front of the mirror, hoping bumps would just go away, irritated at the office, trying our best not to pick at our skin, and getting ready for a date, wishing that our skin was clearer and smoother. So if you’ve tried products in the past that didn’t work, we’re here to help.
Introducing the Frederick Benjamin Shaving system, a three-step process clinically proven to reduce the appearance of razor burn and bumps, finally giving you that pain free shave you’ve always wanted!
A good shave starts with the right prep. That’s why we made our Easy Primer pre-shave oil, to moisturize the skin, eliminate friction (big cause of skin irritation) and help the razor glide.
Using a heavy foam or lather shave cream means you can’t see what you’re aiming for. And no one should be shaving blind! That means more time in front of the mirror cleaning up mistakes, which means more blade strokes. More blade strokes mean more irritation (welcome back razor burn, in-grown hairs, and bumps). Enough is enough!
Why not go clear? Our Hydro-Glaze shaving gel goes on clear, raising the hairs and lubricating the skin so that you see exactly what you’re taking off, and never miss a spot again.
Splashing your face with cold water after a shave is important but never enough. You need to soothe the skin, not just close the pores. That’s where our Bump Clear post-shave lotion comes in. Not only does it serve as a daily moisturizer to protect the face and neck but it’s been clinically proven and dermatologist recommended to reduce, eliminate and prevent unsightly rash and bumps in just two weeks with daily use!
Before using Frederick Benjamin I had used various bump stopper products. No matter the product, I was always picking ingrown hairs and having bump issues. Within 2 weeks of using Frederick Benjamin, I noticed a considerable decrease in both bumps and facial irritation. After 4 weeks, my problem areas were 99% clear and I spent little to no time having to pick out hairs. I would highly recommend this product if you have razor bumps/burn issues.
