Want to get a baby-butt smooth shave, but have skin that breaks out like a high-school senior’s before Prom Night? Try any of these quality shaving creams and get a perfect shave.
Most shaving connoisseurs will agree that the most important component of a perfect shave is the shaving cream, especially if you have sensitive skin.A high-quality cream will help lubricate and hydrate the skin so the blade glides across your face, reducing irritation and preventing your face and neck from breaking out in dreaded razor bumps.
So what kind of shaving cream should you choose?More than likely, extremely sensitive skin will respond negatively to harsh fragrances, so ideally you want to look for unscented products.However, not all fragrances are irritating, so if unscented products are unavailable, look for mild, skin-friendly scents, such as rose, lavender, and cucumber.
Also, look for glycerin-based creams.Glycerin is a compound that provides the lubricating and hydrating properties that are important in a shaving cream.It reduces the friction of the blade on your face, as well as keeps the cream from drying out and becoming hard.
Need more guidance in figuring out which products are best?Now, before we get started, be warned that the prices may knock the breath out of you for a moment. “$30 for shaving cream?” you may gasp.Yes, these products are not cheap, but you must consider this.A tub of any of these creams will more than likely last you at least a year, even if you shave every day.This makes the prices comparable to going through a few $5 cans of low-quality goop.
