I had always been a waxing girl like many other Indian women and joined the shaving bandwagon hardly a year ago. But once I joined, I never felt like going back to waxing. Convenience of doing it at my home and painlessly were the major factors and the advent of shaving gels (for women) only made the process of shaving better. Today, I am reviewing one such shaving gel which I have been using for a few months now – Equate Dry Skin Shave Gel.
Price: $2 for 7 oz / 198 g.
Equate Dry Skin Shave Gel contains vitamin E and other lubricating ingredients to help protect even the most sensitive skin, while delivering the closest most comfortable shave.
My Experience with Equate Dry Skin Shave Gel:
At the onset, I would like to mention that I absolutely love this product and it has made the whole shaving experience easier. The shaving gel comes in a metal can with a spray nozzle. The base of the can rusts easily, so you need to be careful to store it away from water. Also, sometimes the nozzle pumps out more than required and you need to use it with a light hand.
The product is light pink in color and has a mild floral fragrance which tends to linger on your body for 1-2 hours. You only need a little product as it lathers very well. The razor glides much easier on this foam and gives you a close and smooth shave. It rinses off easily without leaving any residues. I love that it does not dry out the skin and also helps prevent any skin irritation after shaving.
I use this for shaving my arms and legs. The product description mentions that it can be used for shaving the bikini area as well. However, I have not tried that out.
Pros of Equate Dry Skin Shave Gel:
- Gives a close smooth shave.
- Does not dry out the skin.
- Only a little product is needed as it lathers up well.
- Has a mild and pleasant fragrance.
- Very affordable.
Cons of Equate Dry Skin Shave Gel:
- Metal can tends to rust easily.
- Nozzle dispenses more product than needed.
- Availability in India.
