River Peak Apothecary
Strongfell Shave Oil • Winter
FOR MATURE & DELICATE SKIN
Scent Profile: Frozen herbs over fragrant, smoking coals
STRONGFELL IS...The clash of steel and stone in the biting air, echoing from training grounds, healer's chamber sharply smelling of winter herbs used to calm blade-bitten and windblown skin, fragrant coals focusing the mind to a razor's edge for battle.
Benefits: We have never met a beard and shave oil that does both as well as ours do their jobs. This stellar shave oil formula took a dozen barbers 2 years to agree upon, but the wait was worth it. Our shave oil scent blends are made with more purpose than simply good smells. All of Strongfell’s essential oils are chosen for their ancient reputations for hostility toward microscopic beastlies, and friendliness toward dry, delicate, wind-beaten, and mature skin.
Tips from the Alchemist: Shave oils can be used in a great many stages of your shaving routine. Pick the parts that fit your routine, it can be as simple or involved as you make it, but we at the apothecary encourage you to treat yourself.
How to Use Shave Oil:
Pre-Shave: Apply to face before using a hot towel or other steam source. If desired, follow with a gentle scrub or other exfoliation method for an even closer shave and better finish.
Beard Lining: When you aren't shaving a whole face, try shave oil by itself. Making crisp edges around beards, mustaches or other facial hair is much easier when your shave medium is transparent.
Full Shave: Our barbers are split on the better method here, which tells you both are great options: 1) Apply shave oil, top with shave cream; 2) mix shave cream and oil, especially by dripping half a dropper on top of a shave soap puck before whipping with a badger brush. Perfection.
The Lore: In the Realm, the Fortress of Strongfell in the Giant lands of Jotunheim are a remnant of Human’s brief expedition into the frozen lands, where the Strongfell Horrors just after the end of the Iron War still haunt the crumbling ruins.
