Shaving is not something we put a lot of thought into. Whether you are a man looking to get a clean shave before work or a woman hoping to clean up her legs or underarm hair in time for that 9 A.M. meeting. Shaving is usually a rushed affair. Unless you are being paid to look good it really doesn’t make sense to waste hours in the bathroom to get the most perfect shave. But, fear not, because there are countless products available to make shaving easier and hassle-free.

Shaving gels, shaving creams, shaving soaps, and shaving foams are the most commonly used cosmetic products for shaving. Whether you want a rich lather or a thinner slicker layer of lubrication, the choices are endless. Whether you dislike the pain, irritation, and or razor burns there is a lot to complain about shaving. All the products mentioned above were created as supposed improvements on their forefather, and arguably still the source of best shaves, shaving soaps.

What is a Shaving Gel?

Shaving gels are one of the most selected modern alternatives available. Easy to purchase, use and store in their specially made tin cans, shaving gels allow you to get a great shave with a multi-razor blade while reducing the pesky annoyances of shaving. While shaving gels in the aerosol cans require you to work the gel on the skin to create a good lather the original and real shaving gels are made to be used as just that, gels.

A good shaving gel do not contain alcohol that dries out the skin but rather are based on better lubricants like glycerin or natural oils like jojoba. An almost transparent lubricant, shaving gels are the perfect choice for people looking to make more exact cuts, lines, or styles with their facial hair. While creams and foams cover up your beard gels allow you to see exactly what you are doing.

Benefits of Shaving Gels

Shaving gels provide a slicker and smoother shave that help the shaver avoid irritation. While thicker than your average creams or foams, the extra lubrication of shaving gels makes them the recommend choice for people with sensitive skin. People who have sensitive skin can also benefit from applying a vitalizing serum after they have shaved. Always clean your face before applying the face serum.

The lack of alcohol in shaving gels prevents the skin from drying, cracking and suffering razor bumps. The moisturizing aspect of shaving gels leaves the user’s skin feeling fresh, and smooth after the shave.

Another advantage of shaving gels is the fact that you can use them on any type of skin, whether it is on your face, your body, and whether it's dry or oily. While other products like soap water might create a burning sensation, gels only soothe and refresh the skin.

Maybe the best part of shaving gels is the ability to control your style. The ability to see exactly what you are working with makes the final product of your that much more brilliant. When you can cut exactly how and where you want, you can truly accentuate your personality.

We have come a long way, in the world of skincare from when shaving creams were invented some 2300 years ago. With a variety of options out there it is important to find the perfect option for your skin and blade. Shaving gels are a great medium for all sorts of people. Regardless of what you have to shave, you can truly rely on shaving gels to provide the lubrication, control, and protection you need from your shaving aid. Easily the best product for people from all skin types, shaving gels will remain one of the best options in the market for some time to come.
