This could technically be one for the boys. In fact, I rarely bother with shaving creams designed with girls in mind anymore. I've not had much luck so I'm sticking with the ones for boys. Plus, they always smell better. I was using a can of shaving foam that said it was for sensitive skin for a while. It was one of the ones especially for girls. The burning! Ouch! I did *not* enjoy that experience. Once again, I turn to the organic side of life for something more gentle whilst still being effective. In the same order from Content Beauty & Wellbeing as my Love Potion, I popped a Grown Alchemist shaving gel into the basket. I'm not going to lie, the packaging and the idea of sandalwood totally spoke to me.
I would be hard pushed to love the colours and the simplicity of this packaging more. I'm also excited about metal tubes so I can use my crinkly thing on them when the product starts to run down. I know there is a technical name for the crinkly tube squeezer thing, but I like making up my own names for it. I use this at the weekend and loved it. It's a lightweight gel of the kind where a little will do substantially more than you think. It has decent lather on it and my razor didn't irritate my skin for a change. Hooray! The gel itself didn't irritate my skin and the fragrance is amazing. It has that wonderful smell that only a natural product can have. So clean without being clinical. I love sandalwood. This is really the right way to start the morning.The fact that the first ingredient on the list is aloe speaks volumes.
At £24 for the tube, it felt like it was on the pricey side for a shave gel but the ingredients list more than backs this up. Also, I get the feeling this isn't going to run out particularly quickly. I'm even considering getting one for my kit. I hate giving a can of foam to boys on set as I just know their skin is as sensitive as any other model from all the product we put on it every day.
