For best results, apply a thin layer evenly to the face before sleep and gently massage into skin. The temperature of the skin will "melt" the butter on contact and allow for easy application.
Allow to absorb into the skin overnight. Prior to shaving, prepare face with shaving soap as usual, using a pre-shave oil as well if desired.
If not applied overnight, apply a thin layer evenly to the face and allow some time to fully absorb into the skin prior to application of pre-shave oils or shaving soap.
Always open tin in horizontal position to avoid spilling butter which may liquify slightly in warmer conditions.
