Gone are the days when a bar of soap, water and a razor is enough to get you what you thought was a close shave. Let’s ignore the fact that you’re strutting down the street with band aid-covered legs because you didn’t take the time to find a shaving cream that best-suited your needs and made you susceptible to nicks and irritations. Since many of us are finicky shoppers, and have specific shaving cream needs, don’t settle, just check out my four best leg shaving cream for women which offer a little somethin’ somethin’ for everybody.
For a pick-me-up anytime of the day, you’ll love Avalon Organics Peppermint Moisturizing Cream Shave ($7.95, avalonorganics.com). The subtle scent of peppermint essential oil refreshes your senses as you shave away stubble. And if you’re unlucky and nick yourself while shaving, ingredients such as plant oils, organic aloe and Beta-Glucan will help to speed up your recovery time. Sensitive-skinned ladies need not worry because this product is perfect for all skin types. This shaving cream is also the perfect choice for someone who wants a natural product since it’s made with 70% organic ingredients.
If you’re into the smell of sweets then look no further than Alba Mango Vanilla Cream Shave ($5.99, drugstore.com). This product smells good enough to eat. As soon as you open the container, your nose hairs are met with a burst of tropical mango and pure vanilla scent. This cream shave isn’t particularly thick and is in fact a bit transparent. With that said, it still delivers a close shave without the threat of nicks, burns and irritations.
Are you short on time and want the flexibility of shaving anytime and anywhere? You’ve just hit the lottery because EZ Waterless Shave ($12.99, bodyverde.com) helps cuts shaving time in half by using no water at all. I approached this product with a little skepticism because the claim seemed too good to be true – no water, really? It only took me using this shaving product one time to understand quickly why this is the real deal. All you do is apply EZ Waterless Shave to soften your hair and shave directly over it with a razor. You then massage (don’t rinse) into your leg any left over product since it is moisturizing. Afterwards, you’ll notice how smooth your legs feel. The second benefit of this product is what I call a hidden gem – it’s eco-friendly because there’s no water waste!
Ooh la la! Shaving Gel from Queen of… ($2.69, kingofshavesdirect.com) turns the chore of shaving into a sensual experience that preps your legs for becoming soft to the touch. A cream this is not, but it is still effective as a gel-based, Aloe Vera formula to provide you with a close, comfortable shave that leaves your legs feeling silky smooth. Hairy legs be gone!
One shaving cream does not fit all. I quickly came to that conclusion as I tested these products. Some will be a must-have purchase, and others will sadly sit on the shelf. If you end up buying one of four best leg shaving cream for women featured, I’d love to know what you think and I’m sure other HKI readers would to, so please leave a comment!
Tip 1: Dump it. If you see rust on your razor, get rid of it and get a new one. If you shave with it, you stand a good chance of nicking yourself.
Tip 2: Moisturize.Since your legs don’t contain a lot of oil glands, always, always, always moisturize your legs after shaving otheriwse they’ll look extremely dry.
