Skintimate Shave Gel

I am not one to usually use shaving gel or cream of any sort, so when I got the chance to try out the Skintimate Shave Gel, I decided to give it a try. 

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. I had remembered shaving cream being annoying to use and making shaving more difficult than it needed to be. My experience with this wasn't like that at all! Here I have a list of my pros and cons to using this shave gel.

  1. 1. Pro: Spreads Easy

    This shave gel spread really nicely on my legs, and it stayed there! I remember one of my annoyances with shaving cream before was that I would put it on my leg and it would run down (even when not rinsed) my leg faster than I could shave. It's also nice because I felt like I didn't need to use a lot. Just a small dollop was enough to spread across my entire leg.

  2. 2. Pro: Smells Good

    The bottle I got is scented Rasberry Rain, and it does smell nice and fruity! Who doesn't love nice smelling shower things?

  3. 3. Con: Can't See or Feel Hairs as Well

    This is one of my biggest issues with using shaving cream of any sort. I have a greater tendency to miss sections of hair because I simply can't see them under the shaving gel, and the shaving gel makes my leg so smooth, that I also can't feel remaining hairs after I shave. Then, I get out of the shower and dry off and notice a line of unshaved hair on my leg; it's rather annoying.

  4. 4. Pro: Soft Smooth Skin

    While the smoothness it gave my skin made it hard to check for completion, I do love having super smooth skin! I can't remember the last time (before using this) that my skin was this smooth upon exiting the shower.

  5. 5. Con: Takes More Time

    I've been trying to keep track of my time in the shower lately, and I definitely noticed that shaving with the gel took me longer than shaving without the gel. Maybe it's because I was trying to pay attention better so I knew what I thought. And maybe the amount of time will go down if I use it more regularly. I'm not sure.

  6. 6. Pro: Skin Stayed Hydrated Longer

    I shaved with the shave gel on Sunday evening and did my regular lotioning afterward. As of Tuesday evening, my legs are still smooth and probably won't need more lotion until tomorrow. Now that is very rare for my skin. I have pretty dry skin and usually need to lotion up about once a day, but my legs haven't needed the extra lotion, which is a huge plus for me!

If you're like me and you rarely use shaving cream or gel, I would recommend trying the Skintimate Shave Gel. I don't know a lot about other shaving creams and gels right now, but I know that I liked this one.
