Spiced Vanilla Glide Shave Lotion
Featuring a full range of benefits to make your routine easier, this is a clear gel that allows you to see exactly where you need to shave, so you can better edge beards and mustaches, line sideburns, and clean up neck areas. There’s no need to use water—just smooth on and shave off. On application, this gel acts as a pre-shave lotion to soften and ready your face. As you’re shaving, it protects and conditions the skin. Finally, like an aftershave lotion, it will soothe, calm irritation and accelerate regeneration of skin cells.

Even better, it promises to linger on the skin like never before. What’s not to love?
