Shaving is different for every guy out there and it brings different challenges to each of us. Whether is sensitive skin or a lack of knowledge about the upkeep and preparation behind your shaving routine, we're all after that one thing - a clean and easy shave that gives that well groomed and neat finish, ready to tackle the day ahead. I've always struggled with sensitive skin so always welcome new products to help tackle this as part of my shaving routine. Cornerstone offer a number of different product boxes, that can be tailored to your specific needs and set up with a delivery plan to be sent to your house as regularly as you need.

A big part of my routine is the preparation - a step most guys overlook. I start with the face scrub, as this helps get rid of any dead skins cells and softens the skin and hair, ready for the actual shave. It also brightens my skin and helps open up the pores. Apply as you would with any facial cleansing product and wash away with warm water. On the days where you might not want to shave, this can be followed by using a moisturiser, to keep the skin looking fresh and hydrated.

If you're going for a completely clean shaven look, I always find it best to shower first. The steam softens the hair and skin, preventing any snagging and will give you a smoother shave in the long run. I tend to use shaving gels instead of creams or foams as I find they give a smoother finish and keep the skin hydrated which for me, is the most important part. The razor itself has a great weight to it and can be engraved with your initials for that extra touch of personalisation. The heads are interchangeable and last for a relatively long period of time. Finish the actual shave with a post-shave balm to cool the skin and sooth any problem areas.

The different shaving plans Cornerstone has on offer give us guys full control in terms of products and how frequently we want to receive them. You can pause or stop your plan at anytime and let it work around your grooming schedule. What's easier than having it delivered right to your door each month, with all the supplies you'll need to keep you looking sharp? I've found it takes the chore out of shaving and delivers the results I'm after. Give it a go, and let me know your thoughts!
