A Little Goes a Long Way

We here at êShave know that a little goes a long way.  And no, we’re not just talking about Darren Sproles.

For those of you who do not understand that joke, Darren Sproles is a running back for the New Orleans Saints, and at five feet, six inches tall, he is one of the shortest men ever to play that position.  He also set the NFL record for all-purpose yards last year.  So, literally, a little (man) went a long way.


He’s also 190 pounds and could probably break me in half, so I am not going to continue down this line of reasoning.


Anyway, like most things in life, the central philosophy of “a little goes a long way” can best be expressed through football, but it also has other applications as well.  For instance, our creams and lotions are specially designed to be effective even when you use only a small amount of product.  With a badger-hair brush, just a penny-sized dab of shaving cream can prepare your whole face for shaving twice.  Just follow a few simple steps:


  1. Thoroughly moisten your brush.  We recommend letting it sit in a bowl of warm water while you shower.  When you get out, your brush will be ready to go.
  2. Let the excess water drip off your brush, and use it to scoop a small bit of cream.
  3. Lather up!  This can be done in a bowl, but I personally prefer doing it in my hand.  I get a foamier lather, with the added benefit of moisturizing my hands with êShave’s cream’s hydrating properties.
  4. Shave normally.  After you finish, if you want to get an even closer shave, you should still have enough lather on the brush for another go-round.  This time, be extra careful with your blade, as your skin may be extra sensitive due to the previous contact with the metal.


It is that easy.  Getting so much from so little has the added benefit of saving you money in the long run.  Many people are turned off to êShave and other luxury shaving products because of their relatively high initial costs.  But a four-ounce jar of êShave Shaving Cream can last up to six months when used with a badger-hair brush.  Try to get that kind of longevity out of a can.


So if you want to make the most out of what you have, look no further than êShave.  And as you separate two-ply toilet paper and shift to neutral down hills to save a few bucks, take solace in the fact that with us, you’ll get your money’s worth.
