- SHAVING DIRECTIONS
Drop shave bar into the bowl, add a small splash of water to soap, and begin to brush the bar to create foam. Continue brushing until you have enough of the thick lather to work with. Add a few additional drops of water if needed.
Apply lather to skin using the brush and shave as usual.
Once shaving is complete, pour out any excess water from the cup or bowl, rinse the soap from the brush, shake off excess water and allow to dry bristles down for next use. Soap and bubbles remain in the bowl to dry, the lather will be reactivated with water during the next use.
- SHAVE BOWL MAINTENANCE
If the bowl gets dirty or begins to look faded, gently hand wash with warm (not hot) soapy water. Do not place in dishwasher, microwave, or oven.
Polish inside and out with a small amount of coconut oil to hydrate, darken and shine.
- SHAVE BRUSH MAINTENANCE
This brush is natural hair that will have a scent. Before first use, soak bristles in white vinegar overnight, rinse and allow to dry. Repeat if necessary. The scent will fade completely with use.
If brush hair gets tangled use a fine-toothed comb to gently comb hairs straight again. Tangles can occur when too much pressure is placed on the brush while lathering. Try using gentle brushing and alternate from back and forth to circular lathering motion.
If the brush gets dirty, gently hand wash with warm (not hot) soapy water. Do not place in dishwasher.

Q: Is this product and shaving method just for men?
A: Absolutely not! Many of us have hair in places we would prefer not to. Why would gender change how we deal with it?
Q: Can you suggest a zero waste razor?
A: Hands down our favorites come from LEAF. Although there is a bit of sticker shock at first, the replacement blades cost pennies and this razor will be with you for at least a dozen years. They have several options based mostly on where you plan to shave, but we enjoy the multi-blade flexible head of the Leaf Razor.
Exceptional product. Paired with the Leaf Twig as recommended and I haven't had razor bumps or ingrown hairs since. Wonderful products that are good for my skin AND the planet WIN WIN! 10/10
I bought the shave set as a gift for my husband but ended up buying one for myself too! It’s a great deal and I love everything about it! The soap smells great and is even better than shaving cream!
The bowl is sturdy and waterproof and just stays on the edge of the tub. Bonus, it’s not glass so I don’t have to worry about having it in the shower!
I hadn’t used a shave brush before and neither had my husband and we’re both hooked now. It’s easy and is for sure the best way to get the soap into a nice lather! Five stars for sure!
Quick shipping on my order. Bar isn't huge but it lasted me for a few months with daily use so it turned out much better than my old shaving cream. Happy with the pleasant and lighter smell too as I'm sensitive to strong scents. Brush is nice and soft and i enjoy the wooden handle. Great shave all around.
Spent a lot of money for a huge holder of a tiny, and I mean tiny piece of soap and small brush. So cheap in it's presentation and quantity, but so pricey. So sad.
Thank you for the review, we are so sorry you didn't have a good experience! Your review has been escalated to me (Kim - Owner) so that I can help remedy that!
The Shave bar indeed is smaller than the average body bar at 2oz but it is designed to fit into the bowl and allow for plenty of room to create a thick lather using the brush. We find that when used with the bowl and brush, that size bar lasts between 8 - 15 months for most users.
The Shaving brush is of average size. While most commercial brands use a synthetic bristle, we leverage horsehair with a wood handle which is the most humanly sourced available while also being zero-waste.
My hope is that once you use the shave set a few times you might change your mind about it, but please reach out and let us know if that isn't the case.
Please note that we provide all of the product details, dimensions, and both written and video tutorials on the product page. [Shave Set](https://sebestaapothecary.com/products/shave-set)

I like the shaving cream, it’s not nearly as thick as shaving cream from a can, But it works well. It doesn’t last very long on your face, so I have to reapply it sometimes in areas I shaved last. Great as a waste less product. You will completely use up the shaving cream bar, And the applicator brush and bowl should last for a long time.
