A good shower level (and maybe a board). You know how misty the mirror is when you step out of the shower? Slide it on condensation and scientists. If you want to be able to see what you are doing, you need a mirror that does not fog during showering. This may look like magic or witchcraft, but believe us: it is. Do you know the agreement between Inigo Montoya , the Joker , and Edward Scissorhands ? They all suffered from their scars when they tried to shave without a fog-free mirror. Did you really believe that they wanted to take revenge for their father, were a psychotic villain, or put their cutlery on their arms? No, they all fell prey to a misty mirror.
Look, this is the only essential piece of equipment that you may not have yet. If you want to seriously shave in the shower, this is not something you should save on. For example, the Zandro Z’Fogless LED Lighted Fog Free Mirror is a good option. He does not cost € 50 and is absolutely necessary. The built-in LED lights ensure that you see what you do when editing your face. There is no conceivable scenario in which shaving with a fogged mirror works out well. Just ask Tony “Scarface” Montana.
Also, if you can find one, consider buying a mirror with a small shelf or holder to keep your razor in. And then, if you need it, make sure it is big enough for your other shaving stuff.
It would be a fantastic plan to put a separate shelf in your shower to protect your best things from the water. For less than € 15 you can easily put a simple plastic carrier with suction cups in a corner. A chic handmade bronze version can be obtained for € 350. If you decide that you need one, you can get a shelf for every budget.
Glycerin or alum. One of the dangers of shaving in the shower is that everything is wet and slippery. I’m sure we’ve all done that weird dance where you juggle with soap before dropping it, right? Now juggling with a razor is the last thing you want to do.
You also need good grip on your face so that you can keep your skin tight during shaving, and that is often much more difficult in the shower.
Fortunately it is quite easy to solve. You can use glycerin or alum on your fingertips to keep them nice and rough. If you have never used alum, you should really try it.
