Shaving cream is a necessary tool that allows for a smooth, close shave that doesn’t irritate and damage skin in the process, regardless of where you might be shaving at the time. There happens to be a variety of different types of creams available, and one should know how to use them properly to achieve optimal results. Certain products will tend to agree more with specific types of skin and hair.
Despite being created such a long time ago, shaving cream remains as one of the most important self grooming accessories on the market. Shaving cream is created through the pressurisation of different chemicals which rapidly expand when released and help to moisturise and soften both the hair and skin before shaving, as well as afterwards. The density of the cream helps keep everything well in place, nothing runs or thins out, making things very convenient for an attention to detail shaver who might take a little longer to get a completely clean shave. The same moisturising effects can be obtained through non-aerosol products, which are usually considered lotions or shaving gels.
Many different formulas exist in order to cater for the variety of skin types and hair textures. On top of that there is also an excellent choice of scents to choose from including more traditional scents such as your citrus, fruit and flower scents, sandalwood, and even more “suave” choices; either way there should be no issue in finding that preferable scent for the occasion. Shaving cream is usually the cheapest option in comparison to gels and lotions. Someone with very sensitive skin however might not take very well to the chemicals that are found in certain shaving creams, and will most likely prefer the non-foaming type; usually people with dry skin or stubborn hair that grows in several directions find creams to be the most beneficial.
