There are tons of shave creams on the market containing all manner of plants, serums, and chemicals with unpronouncable names. I thought I had seen all of them until I came across Kyoku's Sake Infused Shave Cream. Yes, you read that right: sake infused. Apparently, the tasty alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin has the ability to moisturize your skin as well as give you a healthy buzz.
In addition to sake, Kyoku's shave cream contains silicone micro-particles and an anti-inflammatory algae complex – both of which help prevent irritation. A quick look at other products in the line shows that they're all made with a focus on giving customers clearer, healthier skin with less breakouts or razor burn. If you're not a wet shave kind of guy, consider the Kyoku Electric Pre-Shave Optimizer, which purports to give you a closer shave without razor bumps when you use it prior to subjecting your face to the electric shaver.
If you like what you see and you're a sucker for monthly subscription services, get one of Kyoku's Subscribe and Save packages shipped to your door on a monthly (or 45/60 day) basis. Packages start at $29.95 and include various products including shave cream, facial cleanser, moisturizer, facial scrub, and more, depending on the package you choose. It's a good way to try out a variety of products without spending a ton of money.
They're pretty sure of their products – so sure, in fact, that they've got a 60 Day Better Than Money-Back Guarantee – if you don't like the product, email them within 60 days of purchase, and you get your money back, plus you keep the actual product. GQ, Esquire, and the New York Times seem to like them – maybe you should give Kyoku a try for yourself.
