From Unboxing to First Use: Get Ready for The Shave Of Your Life! 

Getting started on your shave experience couldn't be easier: 

Step 1: Attach the Razor Head

Clip a fresh razor head into your Make My Shave razor handle. Push the head into the handle until you hear a satisfying 'click.'

Step 2: Activate the Lubrication Cushion

Before you begin shaving, rinse the cartridge under warm water. This activates the lubrication cushion, enriched with the soothing essence of Vitamin E and Aloe Vera.

You'll notice that the cushion transforms into a gel-like texture, providing extra lather for a softer, smoother shave.

Step 3: Wet Your Skin

With your razor ready for action, wet your skin thoroughly. Dry shaving can be a serious player in causing redness and razor burn.

You can choose to shave with or without shaving cream or gel. For the comfiest, closest and smoothest shave, we highly recommend trying Make My Shave's Shave Cushion.

The beauty of this cushion isn't just the way it enhances your shave, but it add extra hydration and softness to your post-shave experience. 

Step 4: Shave with a Shave Cushion

To create a gentle, skin-soothing lather, rub the dampened shave bar directly onto the area you want to shave. Watch as the your Shave Cushion transforms into a creamy lather on your skin. 

The cushion is made with a host of skin soothing properties including eucalyptus essential oil, avocado and coconut oils. The combination is designed to reduce inflammation, moisturise, soothe and repair dry or damaged skin.

Step 5: Shaving Technique

Once your razor head is wet, and the lubrication is activated, pull your skin taut. Begin shaving using small, controlled strokes rather than long, dramatic ones.

Step 6: Easy Cleaning & Razor Maintenance

Thanks to the open-back design of your Make My Shave razor, cleaning is a breeze. Remember to rinse your razor head between strokes to prevent clogging and maintain sharp blades.

Finally, enjoy the shave of your life with Make My Shave!

Essential Techniques for Cleaning Your Razor

To keep your female razor in optimal condition, rinse it thoroughly after each use to remove hair and any residue left from shaving gels or foams. 

Loosen stuck hairs or trapped debris by simply soaking your shaver in warm water. 

If you keep your shaver in the shower, keep it away from water flow. The Make My Shave Razor Holder is fabulous for keeping your razor in optimal condition and out of trouble when not in use.

The beauty of your handle is that it's rust resilient. Maintenance of your handle couldn't be easier. Give it a quick wipe with a dry towel and it will shine for you. 


Why Is Regular Cleaning Important?

Regular cleaning plays a critical role in razor care. Cleaning prevents the buildup of dead skin cells and hair under the blades. It reduces the risk of infection by eliminating bacteria, and ensures a more comfortable, smoother shave.

Moreover, regular cleaning helps maintain the performance and longevity of your razor while eliminating any unpleasant odours.

Proper Drying Methods to Preserve Blade Sharpness

To preserve the sharpness of your Make My Shave razor blades, shake off excess water after cleaning. Let your razor air dry on your razor holder to prevent damage.

If you don't have the holder, make sure to store your razor head facing upwards. Placing it face down on the surface may lead to faster dispensing of the moisturization gel.

Ensure the razor is completely dry before storing to prevent rust and extend its lifespan.

The Consequences of Improper Drying

Improper drying can lead to rust formation, dull blades, skin irritation, bacterial growth, and reduced effectiveness of your razor.

Rusty blades pose a risk of infection, while moisture buildup makes blades dull quickly.

Inadequate drying increases the chances of skin irritation and razor burn. 

How Often Should You Clean Your Razor?

Cleaning your razor regularly is essential for maintaining optimal hygiene. Aim to clean it after each use and inspect for any dirt or buildup. 

Razor Storage Solutions for Longevity

Proper storage is key to extending the lifespan of you razor. Keeping it in a dry, well-ventilated area helps prevent moisture buildup and potential rust. And remember, don't leave it under running water. 

Consider using a dedicated razor holder to maintain the sharpness and cleanliness of your razor.

Avoid storing it in damp areas, never leave it face down and keep your razor separate from other products to prevent contamination.
