A Shaving Celebration

May 27, 2011

Judging by the popularity of Movember and other hairy fundraisers, men certainly jump at the chance to let themselves go grow out their beards.

I’m digging this beard-shaving celebration in honor of the Jewish holiday Lag B’Omer, described by the minds at Jewcy like this:

“If you’ve never heard about Lag B’Omer it’s all about joy. In a period of mourning it’s the breath of fresh air, the “Adult Swim” to the Omer pool party.”

A bunch of joyful Jews recently gathered in LA to celebrate with “a bonfire, music, and hair removal.” After 33 days of growing out their beards, the hirsute came together to rid themselves of their fur.

“We held a joyous party that was an homage to Hair. From playing songs to telling funny stories about our experiences with hair. We even trimmed a few beards at our shave station.”


Wishing all a happy Lag B’Omer and many joyful clean-shaven days!

We’ve been inspired by Budweiser’s  “Grow One, Save a Million” campaign,  which asks guys to save water by not shaving.

The way we see it, you can save water AND remain clean-shaven by skipping your usual beers between now and World Environment Day (June 5).

In 2009, Budweiser sold over 10 billion gallons of beer — that’s a lot of water.

Pacific Shaving’s Clean Cut, Clean Living initiative encourages beer drinkers to save about 24 ounces of water each week by simply having a couple less frosty ones.

Visit our Facebook page  (http://www.facebook.com/PacificShaving) to make the pledge. For every pledge made between now and June 5 we’ll plant a tree with our partner Tress for the Future.

Less beer, more water!

Inspired by Budweiser’s “Grow One, Save a Million” campaign which asks guys to save water by not shaving, Pacific Shaving Company is asking beer drinkers across America to help save an additional one million gallons of water by drinking two fewer beers a week between now and World Environment Day (June 5).

In 2009, the leading global brewer sold more than 10 billion gallons of beer, of which water is a key ingredient. Pacific Shaving’s just-formed Clean Cut, Clean Living initiative encourages consumers to get involved and save roughly 24 ounces of water each week by simply having a couple less cold ones.

Pacific Shaving understands that most of us need to shave every day. But the happy hour beer is optional. Consumers can visit Pacific Shaving’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/PacificShaving) to make the pledge and share the program with Facebook friends. For every pledge made between now and June 5th, the company will plant a tree. So let’s each do our part to minimize the approximately 27 million gallons of water used each day in the brewing process by passing on the casual beer between now and World Environment Day.

When it comes to shaving, you can also do your part in conserving water by shaving at the sink and turning the faucet off. When it comes to the environment, Pacific Shaving Company is proud of the fact its line of natural, safe and eco-friendly shaving essentials is manufactured in the USA and uses minimal packaging. The company also works with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for every purchase. (Learn more: http://www.pacificshaving.com).

Feeling Electric

May 10, 2011

Yes. The answer is a clear and enthusiastic (and super moisturizing) yes.

Yes, you can use our shaving oil with an electric razor. Though I’m partial to a traditional razor, often imagining myself — if I were to ever come back in the body of a hirsute gentleman — fearlessly shaving with a straight razor, I understand the appeal of the electric. It’s safe, it’s clean, it’s rechargeable.

Using shaving oil as a pre-electric shave conditioner softens the hair and helps the blades move over the skin with minimal friction (and minimal pulling and tugging). Shave oil also moisturizes the skin.

If that’s not a hair removal win-win, I’m not sure what is.

Happy spring shaving,
