Skintimate Shave Cream for Women, Dry Skin

Out of all of existing shaving creams on the market, the Skintimate Shave Cream for Women is our favorite. It has a very creamy texture and a little goes a really long way.

One 10oz can will last approximately a month, and you can get a year’s supply (12 cans) for under $40.

This formula has been specifically created for dry skin and contains moisturizers, vitamins and an anti-oxidant to make sure that the skin remains hydrated during, and well after, the shave.

The cream forms a rich lather on the skin that helps protect against nicks, cuts and other shaving irritations. If you shave frequently and are prone to sensitive skin, this cream is a great option for you.

It’s a great option for anyone really, sensitive skin or not! Customers provide an overwhelmingly positive array of feedback on the Skintimate Shave Cream for Women, ranging from “best in the world” to “my skin feels so soft”.

The smell is light and not overpowering and leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh. It works well with all types of cartridge razors and can also be used with the more traditional double edge safety razor.​

Things we Liked

  • Cheap
  • Effective
  • Works well on dry and sensitive skin
  • Great for all areas of the body

Things we didn't Like

  • May leave a rusty ring on your bathtub/shower area
  • Can only buy online

Luxxx Beauty Bare 16 Fl Oz Intimate Shave Lotion for Women

This lovely, slightly floral scented lotion has been created specifically for both sensitive skin and the most sensitive areas, such as around the genital region.

This area is prone to ingrown hairs, painful cuts and shaving bumps, so it’s a necessity to have a good shaving cream that helps you get a smooth shave without the risk of all the irritations.

A little goes a long way with the Luxxx Beauty Bare 16 Fl Oz Intimate Shave Lotion for Women and it lathers up easily to provide a smooth and close shave.

The keratin and jojoba oil elements ensure that the cream is conditioning and moisturizing, and in addition to these great points, the cream is cruelty, sulfate and parabens-free. It also doesn’t clog your razor up which is a great plus.

One large 16oz can will last you several months and at $17 makes it quite affordable, although not the cheapest on the market.

Customer reviews prove that the cream really does its job of providing a smooth shave with no pesky irritations, especially around the bikini line, and most people love that it comes with a handy pump dispenser and has a fresh smell.​

Things we Liked

  • Great for genital region
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • A little goes a long way

Things we didn't Like

  • A little more expensive than others on the market
  • Smell isn’t everyone’s cup of tea

Gillette Venus with a Touch Of Olay Shave Gel

You can’t really talk about shaving products without talking about Gillette. Their Venus cartridge razor line is extremely popular among the female population, and this new shaving gel is proving to be well worthy of the hype surrounding it.

Gillette have teamed up with Olay to provide their most moisturizing shaving gel to date, and it is a lot better than their regular gels and creams.

As with the other creams reviewed above, you don’t need much to create a good lather with the Gillette Venus with a Touch Of Olay Shave Gel, and it covers the skin well.

The gel provides a very close shave and has the added bonus of being super moisturizing. This helps reduce the appearance of shaving irritations. While not manufactured specifically for sensitive skin, it is moisturizing enough to be used by all skin types.

At $4 for a 7oz can, this gel is the most affordable out of the three reviewed in this article. Customer reviews have been highly positive up to now, raving about how close of a shave the gel provides and how soft it leaves your skin.

The floral scent can be a little overpowering for some though, so this is something to keep in mind if you are not really a fan of scented products.​

Things we Liked

  • Very affordable
  • Super moisturizing
  • Close shave

Things we didn't Like

  • Strong floral smell
