Have you ever struggled to create that perfectly sculptured look when pruning your beard or shaving but too much foam got in the way? Well now there is a solution with the new Clear Gel Shave Prep from Schick Men that goes on invisible to give a crystal clear view of every single hair that makes grooming a cinch.
Unlike traditional gels and foams, this transparent formula stays clear so you can see the hair you're shaving. The non-foaming gel softens and lifts facial hair to get in close to groom and shape your look. It also contains healthy skin nutrients and helps moisturise the hair and reduce the irritation that shaving typically causes.
If you're going with the clean-shaven look then the Clear Shave Gel and Schick Hydro razors work best. Otherwise if you want a designer beard go for the Hydro 5 razor that has an adjustable beard trimmer on one end. Hair specialist and Schick's shaving expert, Geoff Mahanay offers the following tips:
The round face:
When shaping the beard for a round face go a bit longer at the chin to add length and make the face appear less round. Avoid bushy sideburns and keep the sides of the beard short. Otherwise a goatee is a great option for a round face.
The long face:
Unlike the round face the long face requires a beard which is fuller at the sides and shorter at the chin. The aim is to add width to the sides and make the face appear less long.
The square face:
Similar to shaping a beard for a round face, the beard for a square face should be shorter at the sides and longer at the chin to add length to the face. Once again, a goatee is also a good option for men with a square face.
The larger face:
If the face is large then any small facial hair or beard will appear out of proportion and make the face appear bigger. In this case it's best to keep the beard fuller and the moustache larger.
The Small Face:
Small faces require small facial hair. Larger, fuller styles will make the face get lost and appear out of proportion. Also follow the rules above for the appropriate face shape.
Schick's Hydro 5 4-in-1 Groomer, with 5 Ultra Glide Blades to control friction, is the ideal choice for achieving the needs of each and every facial style possible. In addition to the flip trimmer razor, the Hydro 5 Groomer also features an adjustable built-in trimmer on the other end of the razor to provide clean lines.
Schick's Hydro Sensitive Shave Gel has an 'anti-irritation" formula with ingredients that prepare your skin for a close, comfortable shave. Aloe and beard-softening emollients form a hydrating layer to help protect your skin
from redness and irritation.
Schick's Hydro Moisturizing Shave Gel uses vitamins E and pro-B5 in its fastacting formula to help prepare your skin for a smooth shave and its moisturizers ensure your skin is taken care of.
Schick's Hydro 5 Power Select combines its 5 blades with an advanced hydrating gel reservoir to maximize moisture and lubrication. Its innovative skin guard reduces irritation while its flip trimmer and ergonomically designed handle allows you to comfortably get those hard-to-reach spots.
