Zirh Aloe Facial Scrub (Texture)

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Zirh, Sephora, Nordstrom, and Grooming Lounge.
Scent: Not-so-subtle sage.
I Liked: the fine grain of the scrub – it felt gentle on my face.  Great value – a little goes a long way.  Effective at removing dirt and dead skin cells.  Ideal for use before shaving.
I didn’t like: the strong scent and paraben preservatives.

Zirh’s Aloe Facial Scrub works very well, especially when used before shaving.  What I really like about this product is how gentle and effective it is at getting rid of dead skin and other surface debris.  Unlike other scrubs which contain larger, rougher grains that can mutilate the face, this exfoliant has the consistency of a thick gel with fine sugar-like granules.  Unless you really enjoy the smell of sage, the scent takes some getting used to.  A 3.4 ounce tube should last you a few months.  Use twice a week to achieve best results.

How to Prep, Shave, and Soothe Your Handsome Face Caulfields Counter

  • Properly preparing your face by washing with warm water and a gentle face wash can help you achieve a smoother shave.  Washing your face removes the dirt and debris that can hinder the glide of your razor.  Using a gentle face scrub twice a week will optimize the shaving experience.
  • When using shave cream, start by applying to the areas with toughest beard growth such as the chin.  This gives the cream more time to penetrate and soften the beard.
  • Nothing can hurt your face more than using a worn-out razor.  Switch out your blade(s) the moment you notice your razor becoming dull.  Signs include increased post-shave irritation/razor burn and frequent cuts.
  • Always moisturize and condition your face with an alcohol-free aftershave balm or lotion. Don’t skimp in this department – one layer is usually not enough.  Continue to apply until any sign of discomfort or irritation is gone and your face is properly moisturized.
  • If you shower after you shave, be sure to moisturize again after showering.
