the wet shave

Today, most guys use a multi-blade cartridge razor and a can of drugstore shaving cream. But the traditional "wet shave" is making a strong comeback.

You'll find Kiehl's products stocked in the bathrooms of hip and exclusive venues like The Standard Hotel, Nobu...even Air Force One. Kiehl's unisex skincare line gained a super-serious cult following with celebs, fashionistas and trendsetters in the 1990s and it's still going strong. This pedigreed brand traces back to the landmark Kiehl's apothecary, which opened in New York's East Village in 1851 and is still open today. It's now owned by L'Oreal.
