Advantages Way cheaper and just as effective
Disadvantages none if you discount the can
|How does it affect your skin?|
|How easy is to apply?|
|Does it smell good?|
|Quality of shave|
|Value for money|
Ever on the lookout to save a few pence these days, and having switched some of our normal weekly shopping items to Asda brand, we were more than happy with the result. So when it came time to replenish my shaving gear it was pretty obvious to me that perhaps their shaving gel might be just as good a bargain.
On applying to my rather hairy face, it soon lathered up equally well if not better than the branded products, the foam created with the addition of water and a little massage was however not white as usual, it was a kind of watered down version of the gel as it came out of the somewhat basically designed can. A light bluey green would probably describe the colour of the foam, and at first it felt a bit strange having being used to it being white.The gel did its job extremely well and there was no adverse drag when shaving the areas I do to highlight the profile of my beard. The razor was as it should have been gliding over the stubble and removing it with little resistance. I also noticed after a few shaves that the redness sometimes achieved whilst shaving was greatly reduced, and the itching which comes with the redness also reduced.
Having saved 79p and having had probably a better shaving experience, my recommendation for this can be none other than that of delight. The can might not be as impressive on the bathroom shelf as that of Gillette or the like, but the gel certainly is, and as a result I will continue to make a decent saving on my shaving, not that my shaving is as frequent as others.
