Review of "Gillette Shaving Foam Sensitive Skin"
There’s nothing worse than hairy legs. Being too chicken to try sugaring or waxing and finding that most hair removal creams don’t really work too well, I tend to shave my legs. However, this can cause problems too, when you cut your skin. Not any more however, as Gillette have produced a shave gel for sensitive skin which promises to be “Anti Nicks & Cuts”.Now I admit, I was a bit sceptical about this, how could this possibly work and I admit that my main reason for buying it was that it was only £1.89 in Asda for the 195g can.
Does it actually work?
Well I have tried this gel in all sorts of ways, in the bath, in the shower, with a brand new razor and with an already used razor. I can promise you that not once have I experienced any cuts or nicks. I even tried shaving quickly, again, I experienced nothing, not even shaving burn, only silky smooth legs.
I have also used this under my arms and have not experienced any rash or irritation there either. Even when I come to apply deoderant.The Packaging
I will not go into great detail about the packaging, although I shall briefly describe it to assist in you finding it on the shop shelves. The can is turquoise in colour, across the top on a green banner are the words “Anti Nicks & Cuts”. Below this it says “Gillette for Women” then “Satin Care” in white writing. There is a green teardrop down at the bottom and below this it says “with silk”.
The can does not leave any rusty marks on the side of my bath.Appearance and Smell
When you squeeze the button on the top, a turquoise gels comes out. On rubbing this into your skin it turns into a rich, creamy foam.
It smells clean and fresh. I think that it smells quite unisex, i.e. doesn’t smell floral or feminine, but this does not mean that it is unpleasant. Also, the smell lingers around the bathroom for sometime afterwards.Overall Verdict
I love this shave gel. It does not irritate my skin or leave it feeling dry. My legs are smooth and soft for a couple of days afterwards. All this, plus I do not cut myself which is a bonus.
I also think that it is great value for money, you only need a small amount of gel to produce enough lather to do your legs.I have looked on the Boots website to check availability and pricing on there, and I could not find it. I hope this means that it is getting packaged under a different name and not that they are discontinuing it. Now that I think of it, it’s a bit suspicious that it was much cheaper than the others in Asda too. I’d better nip up there later on and stock up. Nah, they have probably just repackaged it.
