Today I am here with a review on women’s shave gel, we have very limited availability of such products in India. I have read few reviews on shave gels here on IMBB and always wanted to try one so was happy to come across this one from Gillette. Many of us shy away from shaving our arms and legs and depend on other hair removing techniques like waxing and epilating. I have sensitive skin on my arms especially , waxing and epilating often leave my skin red and bumpy so I only opt for them in advanced when my skin has ample of time to heal and calm before any special occasion, for last moment I opt for shaving instead and it always works for me. Gillette has many shave gels for different skin types this one is epically for sensitive skin, let’s see how it fared for me.

My Experience with Gillette Satin Care Sensitive Skin Shave Gel with Aloe Vera:
Before starting I would like to say that I absolutely love this product and it has made my life and shaving experience much easier. The product comes in a large steel can with an easy to use nozzle, I am not sure if it is also available in a smaller travel friendly size. Because it is a steel can it has been kept away from moisture and water as the base especially can catch rust easily. Coming to the shave gel it comes out as a blue colored gel at first upon spreading it immediately turns to thick white creamy foam. It produces very rich foam, and very small amount is requiredso little goes a long way and it spreads easily. I have to be careful while dispensing the product with a light hand as sometimes the pump dispenses little more than required. It has a mild floral fragrance to it which lingers for a while which I find quite pleasing.
It creates a thick layer onto the skin which effectively prevents any nicks and cuts while shaving. It also comes with the goodness of aloe Vera which is good for sensitive skin. The directions claim to use it over wet skin, but I feel it performs better over dry or just slightly damp skin I find I gives much better control that ways and get a closer shave as well. It does not irritate my sensitive skin at all, and effectively prevents all dryness and slight irritation on my skin after shaving. It rinses easily without leaving behind any residue. It keeps my skin smooth, silky and moisturized and like before I do not have to immediately apply a moisturizer to soothe my skin, in fact I can even skip one. In all it gives me a perfect smooth shave every time along with the Gillette Venus Razor.
