Hi, I‘m Raphael. You know me as the founder of the Gentleman’s Gazette, and I’ve spent the last six years helping men dress and live better. Shaving is no exception – every man should put his best face forward.

Personally, I want to spend as little time as possible shaving but I want the closest shave possible.

I started shaving with a Gillette Mach3 and canned shaving cream which left my face irritated. It took years of experimentation with dozens of products to find a shaving style that suited me.

The process was so painful and cost so much money that I decided no other man should have to endure the same painful process.


J.A. Shapira

Editor & Lead Author of THE SHAVING GUIDE

Hello I‘m J.A and I am a shaving junkie. To me a 45 minute luxury hot shave feels like heaven. I have spent years perfecting my shaving ritual and made many mistakes along the way, so you don’t have to.

I started shaving with a Gilette Mach3 and now I shave with a straight razor if I have the time and otherwise with a DE.

If you like any of our articles of videos, you will love this guide because it’s so in-depth and comprehensive, yet structured and easy to consume that no matter how you shave right now, once you are done with this guide, you will have a better shave, that costs less and likely even save time.

Enlightening and Comprehensive Shaving Guide
“I recently purchased the Shaving Guide and found it to be enlightening, comprehensive and well researched. The videos are well done and very demonstrative. I also enjoyed the recommended products section and have converted back to a double edge razor and the use of shaving cream and a brush. The $150 investment in the Shaving Guide has improved my shaving quality and experience exponentially! Thank you!”

Can I find these videos and content anywhere else? No!

You cannot find our content, pdf and videos anywhere else.

We know there’s a ton of free shaving info out there, and some of it is very good, but:

  • It’s scattered across multiple websites, forums, and platforms and it would take you hundreds of hours puzzling it all together, not knowing what is quality info and what is not
  • The reviews you find are from different people with different experiences and skill levels.

Not so with our Shaving Guide:

  • Here you can find all the information, periodically updated in one place making it convenient for you and saving you a ton of time
  • We compare our products on an even scale and hence our guide provides more balanced reviews, so you know if a product is truly outstanding, just good or plain bad.

Can I Buy a Hardcover Version of this Course? NO

This course is based on videos, therefore you can’t print it. If you prefer to read, you can do so online but we also created a 288-page companion PDF guide that you can download to your tablet, laptop or phone for on-the-go convenience. We don’t print our material since we update it frequently!

We’re always happy to answer any questions you might have about the course.
