Should you be using a Shave Gel or a Shave Cream?
Want to know something cool? Apparently, there are approximately 30,000 beard hairs on an average male face… not that we’re counting.
Either way, that’s a lot of hairs. So if you’re the kind of person who enjoys a clean shave, then you want to catch ‘em all. We know that using good quality products gives the best results, but with a whole host of choices out there, it’s difficult to decide what works best.
SHAVEL GEL ,or SHAVE CREAM ? The question remains. Luckily, your indecision just caught a break, because we’ve broken down the pros and cons of each product into the parts of your shave that matter.
Designed to be a convenient way to lubricate the skin, using a Shave Gel will help you shave (pun intended) a few moments off your hair-removal ritual. Our Gel starts to foam as soon as it leaves the canister, meaning you can apply it straight away.
We often consider Shave Cream to be the more luxurious of the two options, because it should be worked into a generous lather before applying to the skin. Like to spend a little more time on yourself? Do it the traditional way - use a cream.
The added fun-factor of fashioning a foamy moustache is what makes Shave Gel so great. Its lather creates a layer of lubrication between the blades and the skin. Why foam? Its expansion helps lift the hair from your face, resulting in a nice, clean cut. Science.
Shave Cream really comes into its own during a wet shave, and needs to be worked up between the palms of your hands. The result? A creamy, conditioning coating that sits alongside the skin - giving you a close shave.
The added lubrication that comes from a foaming Shave Gel is a great option for those with sensitive skin. OURS is infused with aloe vera, to give your skin a real treat. Just remember to rinse before each stroke!
Being an effective lubricator, applying a Shave Cream helps the user track exactly where they’ve been, and what’s still left to do. Our SHAVE CREAM nourishes by staying close to the skin throughout your shave - and with essential oils of eucalyptus and mint, what’s not to love?
