Wet the face with hot water. Apply a nut-size amount of cream to the beard. Create a luxurious lather by massaging, or use with L'Occitane Natural Bristle Shaving Brush dipped in warm water. With light pressure, shave in the direction of hair growth, thoroughly rinsing razor in warm water between strokes. After shaving, rinse face and neck with cold water. Pat skin dry with a towel and apply Cade After Shave Balm. Tip: For an extra-protective barrier between razor and skin, apply Cade Travel Oil to beard in upward strokes before applying Cade Shaving Cream.
