I was previously using Gillette..you know those gel ones that come in the cans. Well I realized that the product is loaded with parabens and the actual cans they come in are not environmentally friendly at all. So taking a new eco-friendly approach I came across GudonyaTOO on etsy. They sell shampoos, whipped soaps, lip balms and lotions just to list a few of many items. They also sell shave bars and creams. I've never really tried shave bars before and I liked the idea of a shaving cream better so I went with the cream.
I chose Original Almond (smells like nutty sweet almond with a touch of vanilla) and Strawberry Fields (smells like a fresh ripe gigantic juicy strawberry). The texture of these are just so luxurious; they have the same consistency as whipped buttercream frosting. Like I mean REALLY whipped.
So I scoop one finger in the whipped shave and I take a very little amount and spread it all over my legs after I have dampened them a bit. It foams up just enough and a little amount of this stuff really does cover my whole leg. Mind you, it doesn't foam up as much as a shaving cream from an aerosol can would, but thats a given. Shaving with this cream is like a dream. The razor slides so easily and to my surprise I have not experienced any cuts or nicks on my legs. I always seem to manage to nick myself either near my ankle or near my knee, but not with this stuff!
After shaving, my legs are so so so silky smooth and they feel very moisturized. AND the smell of this stuff fills up my whole bathroom MMM! Knowing what I put on my legs is not packed with parabens and that the container it is sold in can be reused and recycled is definitely refreshing and really makes me have confidence in a product that I am buying.
