It’s a known fact that men are now spending more on grooming than ever before, and according to a recent survey, the average may be as high as a whopping £1,786 a year.

We applaud you, gents – looks aren’t everything, but making an effort and sprucing yourself up is a good start, and will gain you plenty of respect in life.

That doesn’t, however, mean that your wallet has to suffer.

Take heed of these tips to get the most out of your grooming products, and you’ll have plenty of dosh left to go out and show off the fruits of your labour – or just head down the pub!

Look after the pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves.

1. Get yourself a shaving brush.

Yes, we are well aware that this one involves a small initial spend, but in the long-run, you’ll be saving yourself far more.

Not only will the bristles exfoliate your skin, diminishing the need for pricey facial scrubs, but they will also help you to whip up a handsome lather with your Bluebeards Revenge Luxury Shaving Cream.

Which brings us onto our next tip…

2. Learn how to lather up your shaving cream properly.

No more dipping your brush into the pot and spreading it across your jowls.

Instead, pop a pea-sized amount into a shaving bowl and, using a damp brush, make circular motions until you’ve created a thick, fluffy foam.

You’ll be surprised what a long way such a small amount can go.

3. Diminish hair regrowth

The Bluebeards Revenge’s range of products contains magical ingredient Decelerine, to specifically combat tough stubble and reduce hair growth, as well as tackle common shaving problems like razor rash, burn, ingrowing hairs, lumps and bumps.

In tests, Decelerine showed a 30% decrease in facial hair length, as well as a 16% reduction in hair density after 60 days of use.

Not only that, but it also virtually eradicates rashes and irritation, soothing and moisturising the skin and facilitating its regeneration.

Using our range will eventually have you reaching for the razor less often before, and as a result, your shaving creams, oils and other products will easily go the distance – and a whole lot further.

4. Look after your razor

If you missed our in-depth post on how to get the best of your blades, then head over for a read now.

In short, protecting and caring for your shaving equipment will see you replacing it a lot less often.

And with razors and their blades typically being the most expensive pieces of kit, this is probably the most cost-effective tip of all.
