This scrub clears the way for an easier, closer shave by smoothing the surface of the skin and clearing congested pores. Menthol and vitamin C help wake-up and invigorate skin while small, highly uniform scrubbing particles open congested pores and sweep away deep-down oil, dirt and dead skin cells. Why bother? Because removing oil, dirt and dead cells helps the razor get closer to the skin for a smoother, easier shave. Getting rid of those dead cells also helps prevent in-grown hairs.
