Elevate Your Shave With Gillette

You don’t have to love shaving. You don't have to savor every step in your shaving regimen. (Maybe nobody told you that.) There’s all this romance around it, about how meditative and therapeutic it can be. But it’s OK to hate it. I hate it, even though it’s my job to love it.

But I don't hate shaving with Gillette's Premium Heated Razor and let me explain why. Have you ever had a hot towel shave at the barbershop before? Well, it feels just like that, but instead at the comfort of your own home. And if you haven't had one before, I highly recommend getting one. This heated razor makes the hot towel shave accessible at the comfort of your own bathroom. How wicked is that?

Featuring warming technology that heats up in less than a second to provide continuous soothing warmth to your skin, the Heated Razor sets the tone for the rest of your busy day. Now, I know what you're thinking: All I want is a fresh face, why do I have to have a heated razor?

Like other briskly men, I shave to get the job done. It feels as if it takes forever and the odds for punishment are high. Why can’t I just remove my facial hair relatively hassle-free?

This shave is different. Once you're finished shaving, you get this euphoric feeling of accomplishment; That you're ready to take on the world. I mean, that's how you should start your day right? You can adjust the speed of the shaver in case you want to take things slower, or if your skin is too sensitive to handle rapid hair removal. I also love the quick charge and will last an hour with each charge.

Pro Tip: Remember to wash your face afterward and use an aftershave balm to quicken the skin's healing process. I recommend BurkeAvenue by CraigTheBarber's 3-In-1 Face Balm.

But whether you chose to pick up a safety razor, straight edge or electric, think of shaving as a ritual, and you won't dislike it as much.

Everything is not supposed to be fast in life. Sometimes you have to take your time. If you can’t take the time in the morning to shave properly, your skin doesn’t deserve to be clear.
