Directions from packaging:

Squeeze out enough Butterface Shave Balm to thoroughly cover the spots you want a superior shave on. If you're looking for some extra lather action, add a little water to the balm, then rub your hands together to create your desired level of suds prior to applying to your skin. As an extra bonus, this balm cleanses and conditions as it lubricates, meaning it will leave your face feeling clean and smooth.
