If you are going to shave every day, it makes sense to make it an enjoyable experience! Truefitt & Hill's deliciously scented, glycerine-based shaving creams are an excellent way to achieve an incredibly close, yet comfortable shave and will turn the most dedicated dry shaver into a wet shaving enthusiast. Suitable for sensitive skin, the creams made from the purest ingredients produce a rich creamy lather preparing the skin for a truly close shave. It is recommended you use a badger hair shaving brush to ensure the most comfortable shave possible. Badger hair is renowned for it's water absorbing qualities, the more water the brush holds, the richer the lather will be, and a thicker, more emollient lather means a smoother shave.
Truefitt & Hill's shaving brushes are hand weighed and hand knotted using the finest quality badger hair and combined with lathe turned and hand polished handles. At Regent we stock the super badger quality shaving brushes, made with the finer hair from the back of the badger, a long and soft hair.
A badger hair brush is a natural product that with loving care should last ten to fifteen years. When you get a new brush it is quite natural for a few loose hairs to come away from the brush in the first few weeks; these are shorter hairs that did not quite reach to the glue in the base and this should not be a cause for concern. To care for the brush, after shaving, rinse the brush gently but thoroughly in clean water, flick the excess water away and place the brush in a stand with the hair pointing down. If you do not have a stand, leave the brush pointing up rather than horizontal, so that air can get to all the hairs and dry the brush naturally.
Truefitt & Hill have a great range of scents available in the aftershaves, colognes and shaving creams, here are descriptions of a few of the scents that we stock at Regent Tailoring.
1805 - A fresh oceanic fragrance with top notes of Bergamot, Mandarin and Cardamon, combined with a Lavender, Geranium and Clary Sage heart resting on a Sandalwood, Cedar Wood and Musk base.
Grafton - A classic masculine fougere aroma with a fresh spicy green herbaceous opening combined with a dry spicy floral heart, leading onto rich background notes of precious woods and Amber with a hint of leather.
Sandalwood - A sophisticated fragrance which is as modern as it is classic. It is fi rmly anchored with soft base notes of sandalwood, tonka and cedarwood, while delicate middle accords of lavender, thyme and jasmin blend easily with fruity twists of pineapple and melon to add a sparkle of freshness to this vibrant scent. Top notes of lemon and bergamot give a perfect finishing touch.
