Luxury shaving cream in nice scents with skin-loving properties are all the rage, these days. Shaving products are a simple thing that can enhance your day, or perhaps, dry out your skin, assault your nose with chemical smells, and put you in a bad mood!
Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream by Barbasol is, like it’s basics for men, easily accessible and very affordable( srp. $1.79 for a 9.5 oz can, and $.99 for a 2.25 oz. travel size), but it has some nice benefits that women will love.
For starters, the Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream features 7 different scents, including “peaches & cream” for sensitive skin. Shaving creams can range from less than a latte, to more than lunch in cost! But inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap or bad. Pure Silk is enriched with aloe to soothe and moisturize, and it protects against nicks and cuts, The colorful cans are not just pretty, they are made of 100% aluminum and are seamless, so they won’t rust and leave nasty stains on your sink or shower.
I tried the Plumeria and Melon Splash scented versions. Neither had a strong scent, just a subtle one that is fleetingly apparent in the heat of your shower. For starters, like Barbasol for the guys, the push button cap dispenses thick, creamy foam that coats skin quickly and well. My razor didn’t drag, minimizing the possibility of cuts and nicks. When it was time to rinse off the residue, it dissolved quickly and thoroughly, leaving nothing but smoother, silkier skin.
Other Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream scents include: coconut & oat flour, raspberry mist, citrus zest, plumeria, cherry blossom and peaches & cream for sensitive skin formula (with extracts of willow bark, aloe, papaya, and thyme).
