If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you know we are huge fans of shaving our faces over here at TSC TEAM. Like I have been doing it for years, following in the steps of Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe & CLEOPATRA !!
( Whatever Cleopatra did, I’m doing too. LOL ).
And now you are too because…introducing THE HOT SHAVE RAZOR.
Our next beauty tool HAD to be JUST right. Think cute, cheeky, pink, FUNCTIONAL. And something that would make the skin glow. SO enter: your new razor.
Designed specifically for women’s faces- by me & my team. Every detail. As always- edited & curated just for you. To match with your ice roller, duh.
The whole process may have taken FOUR fucking years to design but my-oh-my was it worth it.
This pink razor is so gentle, easy-to-use, & gives you the SMOOTHEST shave. No more peach-fuzz, or should we say pink-fuzz?
Anyway- specifics like always. Why shave your face? Let me pull out my scroll:
All The Dreamy Benefits For You:
♡ removes dead skin cells & gently exfoliates your skin, giving you a dewy, radiant glow.
♡ helps skincare products absorb deeper into the skin, resulting in a PRETTY complexion.
♡ improves skin texture for more youthful looking skin.
♡ creates the smoothest canvas for your makeup.
( Seriously you will not BELIEVE the difference it makes when you do your makeup. AND NO YOUR HAIR WILL NOT GROW BACK THICKER & DARKER. It’s just not true- a myth if you will. I’ve been doing it since high school & all is good. )
THE HOT SHAVE RAZOR came about because it should not be a taboo thing for women to shave their face. Like for some reason it’s a hush, hush subject when so many women do it? I wanted to normalize the secret & talk about it. Suck the energy out of it if you will?
Men shave their faces all the time, & people say they age slower than women. One reason is that shaving exfoliates the skin. Shaving your face isn’t just about getting rid of the black hairs on your mustache (LOL), it’s about exfoliation & getting rid of peach fuzz so your skincare products absorb better, your skin is more glowy, & your makeup lays nicely to give you that glassy, buttery skin.
Why Choose the HOT SHAVE RAZOR:
♡ cute, comfortable handle & a finger divot for a strong grip.
♡ easy to control.
♡ refillable blades to reduce waste. I would get these crappy razors and I was only able to use them once, because they hold bacteria. We wanted to create something with reusable blades so you don’t have to throw out the entire razor. What a waste. THE HOT SHAVE RAZOR is thick, sturdy & less flimsy than others on the market, so you definitely don’t want to throw it in the trash.
♡ CUTE ! ( like you want it displayed).
♡ it’s so affordable. Dermaplaning is too expensive & sometimes you just need to quickly get rid of the long, black hair hanging off your face. THE HOT SHAVE RAZOR is small, light & easy to throw in your bag on-the-go.
How To Shave Your Face:
♡ Pre-shave: Cleanse face & pat dry.
♡ Shave: Ensure your skin is pulled taut & your razor is angled at 45-degrees, then start shaving downward in short, gentle strokes. You can shave upward too, just be mindful not to drag too hard against skin.
HOT SHAVE RAZOR Do’s & Don’ts:
♡ DO: Cleanse skin before shaving & dry it completely— this is super important. (You can add some oil just as long as your skin is squeaky clean).
♡ DO: Use the HOT SHAVE RAZOR, which was designed with a straight edge & single blade. Specifically for women’s facial shaving.
♡ DO: Rinse the razor after each stroke.
♡ DO: Change your blades (some people do this around 7 times, I have gotten to like 15 times) & always sanitize blades between every use. We recommend cleaning with rubbing alcohol pads.
♡ DO: Rinse face after shaving & use the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER to tighten & cool the skin. Then finish off with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL to plump & nourish.
♡ DO: Shave every 1-3 weeks, depending on your hair growth rate & personal preference. Sometimes you’re shaving a long black hair, sometimes it’s the whole face- do you.
+ 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.
+ DON’T: Use a dull blade— because who wants to use a limp-dick razor blade that can irritate skin?
Personally, I shave once a week in the evenings. After shaving I use the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER to soothe skin, then I apply my products (don’t use a peel or anything harsh though, post-shave).
HOT SHAVE RAZOR FAQs:
♡ Benefits of shahving my face?
Not only does facial shaving remove unwanted peach fuzz & facial hair, but it also helps to remove dead skin cells & exfoliate the skin, which allows for deeper absorption of your skincare products.
As a result, you’ll notice improved skin texture & 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, & thus, won’t change your facial hair’s color, thickness, or rate of growth.
♡ 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 & rounds of testing to create a razor that would be gentle enough for women to use on their faces.
Also: BACTERIA !!
♡ How often should I clean or change my blade?
We like to change our blades after 7-12 ish uses to prevent bacteria build-up & blade dulling. ( Just be sure to sanitize your blade with rubbing alcohol pads between the first & 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 so you don’t spread bacteria or avoid it all together.
Anyway !! HIGHLY recommend shaving your face if you haven’t tried it yet. Once you do it & apply your skincare & makeup, you’ll never look back.
PEACH-FUZZ, be gone !!
