Shaving Foam, Shaving Gel, or Shaving Cream?

shave creamShaving Foam

When we think of average shaving cream or gel, we think of standard can packaging and the white foam substance that comes from it. What makes this type of shaving foam so fluffy and easy to lather is the copious amounts of air that lives in the container. This air is actually detrimental to your shave. Air makes the hairs on your head flaccid. If the hair is flattened on your head, the razor is more likely to drag across your skin and cause razor burn. Shaving cream also tends to have fragrance, which can cause irritation.

Shaving Gel

Shaving gel, although not packed with air, contains a lot of alcohol. The high alcohol content can dry out the skin easily. This can be extremely painful on sensitive skin.

Both shaving foam and gel don’t do a suitable job lubricating the skin. Both have a thicker consistency compared to shaving creams. This thicker consistency can clog up razors quickly, increasing strokes and doubling your shaving time.

Shaving Cream

When it comes to picking a shaving cream, pick one that lifts the hair up from your face and also contains lubricants. HeadSlick Shave Cream is a water-soluble and mentholated product. This formula allows blades to glide effortlessly along the skin without clogging– giving you the smoothest shave possible.  HeadSlick Shave Cream is packed with a punch and lasts a long time.

Investing in high-quality shaving cream will not only help your shaving routine but will keep your skin healthy and hydrated and hairs soften and ready to be taken off!
