ZIRH Post-Shave Products
If you're just tuning in, over the last couple months we've been testing out close to 10 different ZIRH products. We've had two reviews - pre-shave cleanser and exfoliant, and shaving with ZIRH cream and gel. Part three of our three part ZIRH review focuses on what to do after shaving.
"You have been erased."
OK, so you've finished shaving, you've splashed your face with cool water (got to close up those pores), and now you're ready for ERASE, "An after-shave tonic is designed to zero-in on shaving problems." I love words like tonic. So old-school. ERASE is great for removing extra bits of shaving cream on your face, and sets your skin up for the all important after-shave moisturizer that you're going to use next. Applying tonic right after you shave is really the perfect time. You typically apply a little to a cotton ball and rub it over your face. If you've got a little stubble, this can be shredded wispy nightmare. So applying ERASE after a shave is the way to go. I actually prefer using those little cotton pads over cotton balls. They're already compressed and flat so they seem to apply better. ERASE is $28.50 for 200 ml.
What's the most important thing you should be doing with your skin? Moisturizing with sun-block. And DEFEND has got you covered. DEFEND is rated SPF 15, and I can vouch for its effectiveness. I spent many a day on the beach this summer and it's the only thing I used on my face. But DEFEND is also great for everyday use. In fact, it's really necessary if you want great looking skin as you get older. I've used this stuff virtually everyday for the last two months, and it's a real winner. My only complaint is that the smell borders on a lemony household cleaning product. However every other moisturizer I've tried with sun-block smells like sun-block, so in some sense this is a welcome relief. DEFEND SPF 15 Face Moisturizer is $28.50 for 100m. Get some and use it every morning.
