This Shaving Cream Could Actually Make Shaving Enjoyable
By Lindsay Sibson
“I think I just lost a pound!”
Please tell me that I’m not the only person out there who has had this thought after shaving her legs.
There is no gentle way to say this, but… I hate shaving! So much hair – E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E.
“Ain’t nobody got time fo’ that!”
Yes, I “let things go” in the colder months and since my boyfriend is currently back in Italy, there isn’t anyone touching my legs but ME. What’s the big deal if you skip a few days (or weeks) – RIGHT?
Aside from the fact that you pretty much need a weed wacker to attack the furry forest you grew, it can also be a painful process that leaves you with bumps and razor burns.
Whether it is time for you to come out of hibernation since Spring is right around the corner or you simply just got lazy, take note of this Homemade Shaving Cream that will surely become your new magic skin-smoothing potion.
Why Make It Homemade?
Can’t you just run to the store and pick up some shaving cream? Yes – you COULD, but studies show that the phthalates and parabens frequently used in personal care products are potential endocrine disruptors!
When you whip up this Homemade Shaving Cream, you completely avoid these hazards AND you still get a great shave that nourishes your skin. This cream is suitable for sensitive skin, women and men.
