Lush’s Guide to Grooming

From shaving to styling and everything in between

Whether you’re after a clean-shaven look, an epic beard, or subtle stubble 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 Ultraplant Facial Cleanser made with just six simple ingredients. This vegan cleanser gently removes unwanted dirt and oil while softening skin with ingredients like glycerin and agave nectar.

If you’re extra shaggy, 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. Another great option is Cool Iced Shaving Cream which leaves skin feeling smooth and refreshingly tingly, thanks to its menthol crystals. This shaving cream is packed with soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose water and cocoa butter. 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!)

Give your beard a treat with Kalamazoo’s blend of fresh pineapple juice, jojoba oil and Brazilian orange oil.

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 Revive 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.

If you’re looking for a lightly scented alternative, Renee´s Shea Souffle Hair And Scalp Oil might be just what your heart and hair desires. This ultra-hydrating treatment has a lightly sweet and musky scent and deeply moisturizes hair with fair trade shea butter, extra virgin coconut oil and organic avocado oil; strengthening hair while adding a touch of shine.
