Whether you prefer shaving gel, cream or lotion, Kiehl’s solutions are made with energizing and efficacious ingredients to provide an incomparably close shave for a smoother, healthier-looking finish.
FIND YOUR SHAVE CREAM
For Sensitive Skin
Is your skin prone to razor burn, bumps or irritation after shaving? If so, you likely have sensitive skin, and we have the right shave gel for you. Our “Blue Eagle” Ultimate Brushless Shaving Cream is infused with soothing Aloe to comfort sensitive skin and prevent razor bumps and ingrown hairs for a magnificently smooth finish.
For The Brush Shaver
With Lite-Flight Shave Cream, a classic shaving tradition makes a comeback. Specially formulated for use with a shaving brush, this product helps the brush lift facial hair and stubble while gently exfoliating to help prevent ingrown hairs. This provides just the right conditions for an impeccable old-fashioned shave.
Our exfoliating shave cream has Menthol and Camphor, which leave a refreshing sensation on your face. This makes for a uniquely invigorating shave experience leaving clean-shaven skin feeling sleek, hydrated and soft.
For The Precision Shaver
If you get creative with your facial hair styles – maybe you’ve tried muttonchops, handlebars or goatees – try Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion.
We formulated our no-lather shaving lotion to let you see what you’re shaving for a smooth, precise finish. With Eucalyptus Essential Oil and Kukui Nut Oil, this product softens hair and protects skin to prevent shaving cuts. Plus, it smells fresh – like the woods.
HOW TO USE KIEHL’S SHAVING CREAMS
With all Kiehl’s shaving creams, apply on moist – not wet – skin. We recommend for your shaving routine to fall after a warm bath or shower.
Many of our shaving creams are rich so a little goes a long way. When you’re ready, be sure to apply a nearly translucent layer. You should be able to almost see through the cream to your five o’clock shadow or facial hair.
And remember, always apply shaving products in upward, circular motions. This ensures that your hair follicles are coated all the way down to the skin.
As you shave, save the tough stubby patches for last. This allows the ingredients ample time to soften facial hair and soothe skin.
If you notice your razor is clogging – you’re using too much.
YOUR ULTIMATE SHAVING ROUTINE
1. Prepare Your Skin
2. Apply Your Favorite Shave Cream
Using upward circular motions, apply a shave lotion or cream based on your style or skin type. Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream is a men’s favorite that softens facial hair and helps defend your skin against nicks, cuts and razor bumps.
3. Go With The Grain
For a proper shave, use light, gentle strokes. Your razor should do the work, not you. Start shaving with the grain (in the direction of hair growth). Then if you have any stubble left, go against the grain for an even closer shave.
4. Rinse Razor Blade Frequently
This prevents buildup on the razor blade edges or cartridge and will result in a smoother glide with more comfort.
5. Soothe Skin Post-Shave
To avoid post-shaving irritation like ingrown hairs and razor burn, rinse skin with cool water and pat it try. Then use a skin-soothing after shave to nourish and protect skin.
