Lush’s Guide to Grooming

From shaving to styling and everything in between

Whether you’re after some clean-shaven cheeks, a touch of stubble or an epic beard, the delicate skin on your face deserves the kind of attention our multi-use shaving and facial care products can provide.

How to cleanse freshly-shaved and bearded faces

How you cleanse is one of the most important things to consider when caring for your face. Soap is great for a squeaky-clean feel, but it can wash away skin’s natural oils—the good kind that help keep your skin healthy, happy and hydrated. For a soothing cleanse on a freshly-shaved or stubbly face, try a creamy option like 9 To 5 Cleansing Lotion. Almond oil and dove orchid infusion keep skin calm while removing dirt and grime at the end of a long work day.

If you’re extra hairy, turn to pineapples to keep big, bushy beards soft and clean. Our Kalamazoo Beard And Facial Wash is loaded with fresh, enzymatic pineapple juice, which helps cleanse skin and zap away dirt in even the furriest of faces. Brightening and deeply cleansing, this emollient wash is great for anyone who wants a fresh-looking face! 

How to shave sensitive skin

If you’re clean-shaven, you’re probably all too familiar with the woes of razor burn. Have no fear: our shaving creams are blended with rich butters and soothing ingredients to minimize irritation and leave your skin soft and soothed. The soap-free Dirty Shaving Cream keeps your skin conditioned with a rich, softening formula full of soothing oat milk and honey. Plus, its earthy scent of cedarwood, sandalwood and lavender is equal parts calming and grounding. Prince Shaving Cream is another calming option with rich fair trade cocoa butter, protective beeswax and a subtle triple citrus scent that lingers on the skin. Smooth some on before you wield that razor for a silky soft result without the burn.

The best post-shave moisturizers

Regardless of the way you shave, taking a razor to your face can leave skin feeling raw. Our Cosmetic Lad Moisturizer works to battle post-shaving irritation with freshly juiced, antioxidant-rich wheatgrass, soothing organic fair trade aloe and healing chickweed. Before applying moisturizer, prep your skin for maximum hydration by spritzing with Tea Tree Water Toner to tone the skin. (And don’t worry, our toners are alcohol-free so they won’t sting your freshly shaven face!)

How to style facial hair

Facial hair deserves the finest care! Since the hair on our face tends to be a little coarser than the hair on our heads, it may require some special treatment. Many bearded Lushies love to use R&B Hair Moisturizer to smooth and soften their beards. Its blend of avocado butter, fair trade olive oil and oat milk hydrate and soften hair, while orange flower leaves a fresh scent behind.
