Hot Towel

Add heat to a boring routine.

Pre-Shave Treatment
8 oz / 236 ml


Chasing trends is an index of fashion, but respecting style is the mark of distinction. Re-create the classic barbershop experience with Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatment: a unique, water-activated heating agent that produces the definitively clean, consummate shave in a modern context. (Hot Towel is not recommended for customers with very sensitive skin.)


  • Zeolite: Water-activated heating agent. Softens beard for smooth shaving.

  • Kaolin: Clay-like material. Helps retain moisture and removes impurities from skin.

  • Bisabolol: Chamomile Extract. Soothes skin.

  • Natural Fruit Oils: Condition and moisturize skin and beard.

  • Great for women who get chill bumps while shaving their legs in the shower

  • Hot Towel SHOULD NOT be used with an electric wet shaver

NOTE:  Hot Towel is an excellent skin and beard conditioner, softening the beard, making shaving easier and more comfortable. Hot Towel works best with thick beards/tougher skin.


Wet face with warm water. Dispense Hot Towel onto finger tips & gently massage in circular motion into bearded area. Hot Towel will heat up for several seconds. Then add Hydroplane Shave Cream directly on top of Hot Towel. Continually remoisten formula with warm water while shaving.  

NOTE: Hot Towel MUST be used with Hydroplane Shave Cream or Whipped Cream Traditional Shave Lather. Hot Towel is best for customers with LESS SENSITIVE SKIN.

• Adds heat and variety to a boring old routine

• Cult Product

"I remember when my biochemist first approached me about this product.  He wanted to create a different type of pre-shave from the standard oils. He thought it would be great to recreate the hot towel compress experience from the old school barbershops. About a year ago we slightly tweaked the formula so that the heating sensation could be a little stronger and last a couple of seconds longer.  I like using Hot Towel every other time I shave. The heating sensation is great and it softens and conditions my beard over time. Hot Towel is best for people who have thick beards and tough skin.  I don't recommend it for people with very sensitive skin, eczema and/or rosacea.  For these customers please stick to Hydroplane and/or Whipped Cream."

Really Good Stuff

The whole Billy Jealousy line is very good, but this is a personal favorite. It feels great on my skin!

Great Shaving Combo

May 23, 2008
I think my girlfriend was tired of seeing my face all red with ingrown hairs so she bought me hot towel Pre-Shave, Hydroplane Shave Cream and Shaved Ice after shave gel off of amazon. As soon as I started using the Billy Jealousy products, my face started to clear up. All the razor bumps and ingrown hairs I had slowly diminished. I definitely think Hot Towel had a lot to do with it. I can feel a slight warming sensation (nothing too drastic) when I use it which helps prick up the hair to get a closer smoother shave. Definitely recommend it for anyone suffering from the same problems as me.

My Closest, Most Comfortable Shave Ever!

This product is as great as it sounds. It literally warms your face, and you then put regular shaving cream over it. I have no idea how it works, but it is both extremely comrotable, and has resulted in my closest shaves ever!

I bought this for my husband, along with the Billy Jealousy Hydoplane Shave Cream and he just loves it. His face feels much smoother after using these products than it did with his old shaving cream.
