Sampsons All Natural Shaving Products Insert

Our shaving system comprises our shaving soap and our moisturizing aftershave. The two together make up the best shaving skin care you can buy. 

We make the finest lathering Shaving Soap we can make.  It contains no lanolin, or shea butter or other oils that add nothing to the shaving process. All soaps are desiccating (drying), and we believe that it and all shaving soaps should be thoroughly rinsed from your face before applying a moisturizing aftershave. It is just as we believe, for instance, that shampoo should be rinsed from your hair before you apply a conditioner. 

It takes very little of our Aftershave Balm to have a beneficial effect on your skin, and in the beginning it is almost impossible to apply too lightly. We use beeswax instead of a harsh chemical emulsifier (that’s how we stop the lighter oils from separating from the heavier butters), but if it feels waxy or oily, you’ve used too much. If you’ve seen how far a few drops of oil spread on a pane of glass, you get the idea. Although too much won’t hurt your skin, try to apply your aftershave as lightly as possible. Your whole face will benefit from your moisturizing aftershave, and you’ll look better. 

To apply:

  • Make sure your skin is moist.
  • Dry your fingers, then take the smallest dab of your aftershave on your fingertips and spread on your face. Avoid so far as possible introducing water into your jar.
  • STOP when you’ve lightly covered your face. Our aftershave balm is substantially oils and butters; it will not evaporate, it is designed first to replace, then to complement, your natural skin oil, which you washed, scraped, and rinsed away when you shaved.
