Master barbers know that the perfect shave starts with a little heat. Duke Cannon’s Hot Shave is a clear shaving gel with a unique warming sensation that helps deliver the closest possible shave. Simply apply a small amount with warm water and wait 20-30 seconds before shaving to activate the heat. This opens the pores, softens and lubricates the skin for precise, comfortable blade strokes. Upon completion, cool down with a splash of cold water and apply After-Shave balm to close the pores and hydrate skin. This 3-in-1 formula offers a lubricating pre-shave oil, a unique warming shave gel and aloe vera for protection. 4.5 ounce tube. Made in the USA, a portion of the proceeds from all Duke Cannon products directly supports charities that give back to U.S. Veterans.
