Shaving cremes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. What’s important is finding a creme that works for you and matches your skin type. If you have acne-prone skin, use a non-comodogenic shaving creme or soap. For others, who have dry, sensitive skin, get yourself a shaving creme which has a moisturising agent.
For those of us who have combination skin, which is sensitive and dry while perplexingly acne-ridden, there are a lot of great products out there – I for one found TriShave to be an absolute lifesaver when I was having problems with my skin. There is a plethora of products out there though – you just need to find one that you like, that works well for you and soothes, rather than harms, your skin.
We recommend that you use shaving creme or soap, rather than a pressurised shaving foam – the former forms a much richer lather, while the latter is bad for the environment and are generally low-quality products which contain chemicals that do nothing good for your skin.
