Gentlemen...what's your shaving style?
Do you go for the popular yet classic smooth-all-over look?
Perhaps just sideburns?
A manicured moustache?
Are you a bearded hipster?
So many options and so many ways to express your personality through facial hair.
But regardless of your final look, all men of a certain age have to shave. Given the fact that over your lifetime you will literally spend hundreds, if not thousands, of hours shaving, isn't it worth doing it right?
Chanel has just released some new shaving products as part of its timeless Bleu de Chanel range which will leave your face looking great, feeling smooth and smelling like a man who knows exactly where he's headed in life.

Read on to learn more about the best way to shave in style using the wet shave method.
The best time to shave is straight after a hot shower or bath as your skin will be clean as well as soft, making a close shave even easier.
No time for a shower? Just wet your face with warm water before shaving.
Shaving creams help soften the skin, prevent razor burn and reduce irritation and those nasty shaving nicks. They also give you guidance to the areas you have already shaved or may have missed.
When using the Bleu de Chanel Shaving Cream, wet your face with warm water and apply the shaving cream in a circular motion before shaving. Afterwards, rinse off with cold water.
Shaving in the direction of hair growth reduces irritation to your facial skin and means you're less likely to get ingrown hairs. So go with the flow and your skin will thank you.
We all have those mornings when we've pressed the snooze button one too many times, but allowing yourself time to shave properly without being rushed means you'll end up with a better shave and less chance of unwanted shaving accidents.
We also recommend that you take the time to rinse your blade between each stroke to prevent hair clogging up the blades and either catching on your skin or leaving missed patches of facial hair.
Bleu de Chanel Hydrating After Shave Gel not only soothes the skin, but also provides a welcome burst of moisture.
It melts straight into the skin leaving it feeling fresh and comfortable.
Finish your shaving ritual with your favourite fragrance and head out to start your day.
By layering your scent with a matching cologne like the timeless and powerful Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum Pour Homme Spray, the layers of fragrance will sit together and create an intensity that will take you right through your day.
All our Chanel products will be gift wrapped in signature Chanel wrapping, ready to give to someone special, or just as a treat for yourself.
We can also pop in a personalised handwritten note if you're sending a gift, just leave your message in the 'comments' section at checkout.
What a perfect idea for Father's Day!
