Like I’ve said a million times before, fashion is about more than the clothes you wear. Neglect your face the proper attention, whether by using inferior skincare products or shaving materials, and you’ll regret the rough skin and splotchy complexion. I recently received a kit of shaving cream, face scrub lotion, and moisturizer from the Liz Earle Naturally Active line and, as you can tell, I was more than willing to scrutinize.
I was overall very impressed by what Liz Earle delivered. For one, the shaving cream was very silky and therefore easy to apply to my four-day stubble, which isn’t the case with more foamy creams. As for how well it came off, I got most of each patch of hair with a single swipe. Golden.
I massaged in the face scrub after finishing with my razor and waited to see if it helped with the unavoidable razor burn and irritation. Happily, my cheeks ended up feeling smoother than usual and, more importantly, the redness disappeared a little. It also breathed some new life into the underside of my bottom lip, a haven for chapness – who would’ve thought?
I got around to trying the moisturizer a couple of days later; this was the only part of the kit that didn’t leave me in awe. Though it certainly prevented my skin from dryness, the cream just didn’t conduct that coolness I’m so grateful for from my Ahava. But, hey, two out of three ain’t bad at all. Go to the Naturally Active Men’s Skincare website and give their quality applications a gander.
