Many of us shy away from shaving our arms and legs and depend on other hair removing techniques like waxing and epilating.
Even I had this fear of shaving until I discovered the art of shaving, which is to exfoliate, oil, shave, wash & hydrate. I recently picked up the gillette satin shaving gel for sensitive skin and after a few number of uses, I thought I should definitely review this product and let you guys know about it.
Gillette Satin Care Sensitive Skin Formula shave gel with Aloe Vera is specially designed for sensitive skin. This lightly fragranced gel with advanced lubricants provides incredible razor glide, protecting you against nicks and cuts.
This special Sensitive Skin formula contains soothing Aloe and Glycerin to help decrease irritation on even the most sensitive skin and leaves you soft and smooth every time you shave.
The satin care shaving gel comes in a sturdy steel spray can, with a nozzle pump on the top. You pump the top of the can to dispense the product and a generous amount of the shaving gel comes out. The gel comes out as a blue coloured gel at first and while spreading it on the fingers, it immediately turns into a thick white creamy foam and spread evenly with an ease. The consistency is thick and very soft, which effectively prevents any nicks and cuts while shaving and the aloe vera is soothing to the skin giving it a cooling effect and since it is thick, only a very little amount is required to lather enough. It has a mild floral fragrance to it which lingers for a while which I find quite pleasing.
I like to soak the hair for a minute with luke warm water, then lather up with Satin Care shave gel for a smooth shave. I take a single pump of the shaving gel for each leg and arm and that’s enough to cover them up entirely. Somehow, I feel it performs better over dry or just slightly damp skin I find I gives much better control that ways and get a closer shave as well. The razor glides in extremely smoothly, giving a very save and neat shave avoiding any repeat shaves on the same area which thus reduces the chances of razor burn.
It keeps my skin smooth, silky and moisturised and like before I do not have to immediately apply a moisturiser to soothe my skin, in fact I can even skip one.
I like to exfoliate my skin before shaving with the Inatur Chocolate & Sugar Polishing Scrub, buy it here- http://goo.gl/N8YhTA, I shave using the Gillette Venus Razor, buy it here- http://goo.gl/ImWhh6 and then I moisturise my skin using my all time favourite The Body Shop’s Body Butter- http://goo.gl/XYHOvB.
Before summing up, I would like to say that I absolutely love this product and it has not only made my life and shaving experience much easier but very simpler as well. My skin feels ultra soft, smooth and moisturised now. I can’t stop feeling the softness of my skin while I’m writing this, as I shaved in the morning itself. I love the freshly shaved feeling of the skin. This Gillette SatinCare Shave Gel is for INR 223 for a product size of 195gm. You may buy it here- http://goo.gl/eF3PM0.
Until next time, Stay beautiful 🙂
