Ahhh Shaving. ’Tis the season of icicles and snow, with arid winds that cut your cheeks and dry flaky skin that desperately begs for hydration and care. Well, in winter, grooming is not so much a task conducted for vanity but mores for skin health.
V76 by Vaughn addresses these beard and skin need in a way that not many brands do. They approach Haircare, hair style, grooming and skincare separately, and do so with American-sourced ingredients formulated without petroleum, sulfates, parabens, minerals and gluten. Cruelty-free and vegan or vegetarian.
More importantly, they carry the name of a male celebrity hairdresser who is acutely aware of men’s fashion and care in the same department. Below, we found the three beard saviors that are carried by the brand: the Clean Shave Hydrating Gel Cream, the Smooth Shave Cream, and the Shave Beard Oil.
