How to choose your shaving cream?
Shaving cream is not the best treatment for a quick shave. It requires preparation. And will not be suitable for those who want to go fast.
A good quality shaving cream must meet a few criteria: It must wet and lift your facial hair to facilitate the passage of the blade while nourishing, moisturizing and protecting your skin.
Shave with the wrong method/products or preparation and you will be sure to get rashes, razor burn. Skin can become dry and prone to cuts.
A good shaving cream should be suitable for all skin types and should contain natural ingredients such as coconut oil, sandalwood and glycerin in its composition to moisturize your skin and protect it during and after shaving.
How to choose your shaving gel?
The shaving gel looks like a shaving cream with a few differences. The first is that the gel ensures a better sliding of the blade, which will protect you from friction and irritation. The second is that the gel does not require any preparation. Unlike cream, which requires the foam to be raised beforehand.
A good quality shaving gel will work well for people with sensitive skin who feel razor burn. Also, a quality gel does not contain artificial oils and therefore will not clog the pores of the skin unlike a chemical shaving cream/gel.
Just like shaving cream, the gel must contain natural ingredients: aloe vera and shea butter are known for their moisturizing action, while calendula and castor oil will help relieve your skin from razor burn.
How to recognize a good shaving soap?
A shaving soap is a dense product that foams much more than the soap you are used to. The high quality soaps called triple milled, are made according to a process used by the French master soap makers. These soaps are saponified three times. This gives them a creamy density that blends evenly and creates a smooth and luxurious foam. A good shaving soap should be rich in fat. The higher the grease content, the more lubricating the soap will be. In addition, a low-fat soap can dry out and irritate the skin.
Also, a good soap should contain glycerin, a natural humectant that moisturizes the skin during shaving. This can considerably reduce the risk of redness and irritation
