Shaving cream, or shaving gel, is used to help lubricate the slide of the blade and facilitates a close, clean cut on hair follicles. Shave cream or gel also aids in retaining moisture which can help reduce nicks and cuts on your skin, making for a more pleasant shaving experience overall. Additionally, shaving cream or gel helps you keep track of where you’ve already shaved – once you run your razor over a spot, the lather will disappear along with your hair, leaving behind smooth skin that gives you a clear visual cue.
CVS offers two main types of shaving cream: traditional shaving cream, sometimes called shaving foam, and shaving gel. Shaving cream is often foamy and is characterized by a light, airy lather that foams up almost instantly. Shave gel forms a richer lather and almost always contains emollients to help soften and moisturize the skin. Shaving cream and shaving gel for men are both designed to help you get a close, comfortable shave.
If you aren’t sure whether you should be using a mens shaving cream or shave gel, why not try both and see which you feel more comfortable using? Signs of a good shave include very few or zero nicks, little to no irritation, and a soft, smooth feel to your skin. That said, if you find that you are prone to nicks and cuts, shaving gel is probably a better choice for you, since it offers more protection for your skin than shaving foam. If you have sensitive skin, you should look for shaving gel for sensitive skin. If you prefer to use a foaming shaving cream, Barbasol Sensitive Skin Shaving Cream is a highly rated choice. Some other popular brands include Gillette shaving cream, Edge shave gel, and Noxzema shaving cream. No matter which product you choose, be sure it delivers a great shave every time – you and your skin deserve it!
