The Best Artisan Shaving Soaps for Autumn
Wet shaving in the Autumn is magical, but which are the best shave soaps and creams for this time of year?
According to the astronomical calendar Autumn starts on Saturday 23rd September 2023. As the leaves begin to change colour and the air turns crisper, wet shaving enthusiasts have a unique opportunity to adjust their grooming routines to match the essence of the season. Autumn is a time of transition, where the warmth of summer gives way to the cosy embrace of fall. Autumn is the time to roll out the shaving soap and creams that are warming with woody, smokey or earthy scents.
At Agent Shave we have picked our favourite shaving soaps and creams to enjoy on these longer evenings:

Autumn's arrival often means lower humidity levels and drier air, which can leave your skin feeling parched.
