How to use a Lane44 double edge razor?

If you're new to the world of double edge safety razors, don't worry. They're really easy to use.

First things first: we recommend using a good quality, natural shaving cream when shaving. It will soften your hair and make it easier for the blade to glide across your skin.

After you've applied the shaving cream, rest the blade against your skin at roughly a 30 degree angle. Gently glide across skin in short, straight strokes. Don't press down too hard, there's no need and it only makes it more likely to cause irritation or a nick or cut!

Once you're done shaving, rinse off with cold water and pat dry with a clean towel. You're ready to go!
