Is Shaving Cream Necessary?

If you’re tired of spending money on shaving cream, or frustrated when the nozzle stops working with the can still half full, it might be a good time to consider other alternatives.

  1. Long before shaving cream was invented, the old standby was a bar of shaving soap, a brush and a cup to hold them. Many people still use this method. If you don’t want to buy shaving soap, try a regular bar of soap.
  2. Some swear by glycerin soap, saying that it provides a smoother shave.
  3. If you shave in the shower, you can use the same shampoo you use for your hair.
  4. Baby shampoo is sometimes preferred because it is more gentle on the skin.
  5. Hair conditioner will soften your hair, no matter where it’s located.

Once you have tried some of these methods, you may wonder why you ever bothered buying shaving cream.
