There are but a few nicer rituals than the classic wet shave. All it takes is the right tools and a bit of enthusiasm. Are you a bit conservative? Good, then you should get a classic safety razor. Open-comb safety razors are perfect for stubbly beards, on the other hand closed-comb safety razors are a bit more forgiving when it comes to your technique. And if you're all for innovation, Mach 3 and Fusion razors are the madness. If a barbershop-style shave is what you seek, it's the shavettes you should be looking at.
Once that's settled you will also need something to creat the perfect lather to make your shave smooth and comfortable. Soap is the classic choice. Sometimes it's lathered up using a shaving brush. Cream won't let you down either, you can even apply it directly on your face. And if you're in rush, get a foam. Even the most mainstream article of shaving proprieties can be perfected. But you're gonna find that out for yourself.
For a finishing touch just add a bit of scent and moisture and you're good to go.
