Pre-shave: Cleanse your face and pat dry. Shave: Ensure your skin is pulled taut and your razor is angled at 45-degrees, then start shaving downward in short, gentle strokes. Be mindful not to drag it against your skin.
Post-shave: After rinsing thoroughly, cool and tighten your skin post-shaving with the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER. Then apply ICE QUEEN FACE OIL to restore hydration and nourish your skin.
Do's and Don't
DO: Cleanse your skin before shaving and dry it completely — this is super important. (You can add some oil or facial shaving cream just as long as your skin is squeaky fucking clean.)
DO: Use the HOT SHAVE RAZOR, which was designed with a straight edge, single-blade razor, specifically for women’s facial shaving. (The best in the game, obviously.)
DON’T: Use a dull blade — because who wants to use a limp-dick razor blade that can irritate your skin? Not us.
DO: Ensure your skin is pulled taut and your razor is angled at 45-degrees, then start shaving downward in short, gentle strokes. Be mindful not to drag it against your skin, and shave with the hair’s grain, rather than against it.
DO: Rinse the razor after each stroke.
DO: Change your blades after 1-2 uses, and always sanitize your blades between the first and second use. We recommend cleaning with rubbing alcohol.
DON’T: Shave near your eyes… because that sounds like a recipe for disaster.
DON’T: Shave over broken skin, an inflamed area, or raised moles. Either shave around those areas or wait until your skin has calmed down.
DO: Rinse your face after shaving and use the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER to tighten and cool the skin. Then finish off with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL to plump and nourish. Then snap a selfie because my god you will be absolutely GLOWING.
DO: Shave every 1-3 weeks, depending on your hair growth rate and personal preference — and say BUH-BYE to your peach fuzz.
What’s the benefit of shaving my face? Not only does facial shaving remove unwanted peach fuzz and facial hair, but it also helps to remove dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin, which allows for deeper absorption of your skincare products. As a result, you’ll notice improved skin texture and a dewier, more radiant complexion. One of our favorite benefits, though, is that it allows your makeup to go on so much smoother.
Will my hair grow back thicker and darker? No! This is a common misconception, but shaving will not affect your body’s natural keratin cells, and thus, won’t change your facial hair’s color, thickness, or rate of growth. (Hot tip: avoid shaving against the direction of your hair growth, as that can make your hair feel as though it has a ‘blunter’ end.)
How often should I shave? Most people find that shaving once every 1-3 weeks works well for them, but you can decide for yourself based on personal preference.
Does it hurt? Nope, not at all!
Why can’t I just use the same razor I shave my legs with? The skin on our face is much more sensitive than the skin anywhere else on our bodies, hence why we went through rounds and rounds of testing to create a razor that would be gentle enough for women to use on their faces.
How often should I clean or change my blade? We like to change our blades after 1-2 uses to prevent bacteria build-up and blade dulling — because, ew. (Just be sure to sanitize your blade with rubbing alcohol between the first and second use.).
What if I’m breaking out? Can I still shave? You know your skin best, but if you have any open acne it’s best to use extra caution. We suggest shaving around acne to avoid spreading bacteria or waiting until it has cleared altogether.
