As we get closer to the summer months, many of us will return to a clean shaven face, opting to discard our winter mane that has become somewhat of a fashion accessory this past season. Unfortunately, we may have enjoyed the little care that was required to upkeep a beard a little too much, so it’s going to be a difficult transition back to the tedious task of frequent shavings. Appreciating our subscriber’s love for luxury products, personal grooming and heightened steez, HYPEBEAST presents the latest edition of our PROCESS series, “Wet Shaving with Baxter of California.” Having started a business nearly 50 years ago as one of the first men’s grooming lines in the U.S., Baxter of California developed a solid reputation for producing premier products specially formulated to meet men’s skincare needs. Utilizing products for the iconic brands collection we present a ten step process for wet shaving. Conventional wet shaving not only provides the closest shave possible, but nothing beats the luxury or pleasure of a hot towel, premium shaving products, and lathering up with a badger hair brush.
