James Fox's beard grooming tips

Post by mourinho » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:50 pm

Because James has become so upset with the distinctly lowered tone of the forum recently, he has kindly offered to give us all some advice on how to look after your designer stubble.

Since I have been left to my own devices, on my way back from Heathrow, with my cheeks damp with tears and my heart dragging somewhere behind I popped down to Jermyn Street and bumped into my lord. I kept out of the light, and repelled my body across the road to lay my eyes on the reflection of the shop opposite, a wood timbered shopfront, contoured by white stone columns and browed with typical London cornicing. On the fascia it read 'Taylor, of Old Bond St.' and I found my eyes strifing between the most incredible array of male groming equipment I ever saw.

Now, my routine consists of twice-daily face scrubs, using a soap with slight detergent properties and a foundation of minerals, to ebb away dead skin. A vigorous wash is preceded usually by a hot shower, the followed by a loose towel dry and the reapplication of water. After which, I coat my chops the finest smelling Sandlewood cream I have come accross, a rich beige paste of heartwrenching luxury that melts in the fingers and froths at the slightest hint of agitation. This is left to soak into my pores for roughly 6 minutes, and then, while I prepare a bowl of tepid water in which to rest my blades, I sit back and whisper some words of gratitude to my love, who can't hear me, and is far away, asleep.

I unsheath a fresh Merkur platinum plated blade and insert it into the armature, running it under the cold tap then begin shaving. Sometimes I go so close I can feel my smooth adolescent chin sticking through. The process takes around 10 minutes and is followed by a soak in tepid, then cold water and a light towelling. I use a clinique preparation that prevents any grazes from bleeding, and firms up the pores. I then apply some Sandlewood aftershave, and cry some more.

Shave in the shower. One of the best things I've ever discovered on my own :lol:
