Use what the professionals use. Tradtional lather used to shave your face is nothing more than Soap. We are all aware that soap dries out your skin. So, why would you want to shave some of your most delicate skin with something that is going to dry it out ? Solution = Shaving your face with a purpose-desgined oil like the Shave Oil from Sixty8 Provisional Company based here in Chicago. Formulated to be thick enough to stay on the face during the shave but not be a mess, completely 100% unscented, and made in the USA. Talk with your barber next time your in the shop about the benefits of making the switch from Soap to Oil for your daily shaving needs. You will be happy you did.

In stock here in the shop, Sixty8 Provisional Company brand beard oil is what you need if you have a beard. It will add weight to the hair so that the shape maintains throughout the day. It also keeps the skin underneath the beard moisturized and reduces the “itchy beard” feeling. The oil has a thin consistency to help work thru the thickest of beards and absorb quickly. Made in the USA, with no added color or fragrance. Just $20 here at the shop. Ask your barber to throw some in your just trimmed beard next time your in the shop.
