I had always relied on soap and conditioners for shaving, but I always wanted to try shaving gels that supposedly give comfortable shave and smooth finish. I tried this shaving gel from Gillette and I am hooked! Read on to know why.

My Experience with Gillette Venus Touch of Olay Vanilla Cashmere Shave Gel:
It comes in a metal bottle which is golden in color. It has a blue plastic cap which closes tightly. Loads of product information are mentioned on the bottle. The product has a pump dispenser which releases the shaving cream based on the pressure applied. In fact, it is a convenient packaging. You can control the product coming out. Also, the 70 gram or 2.5 oz bottle is easy to travel with as it is well under the airport norms of 100 ml liquid. I didn’t find any leakage or spillage ever. The product has got a new makeover although, which I am yet to try.
I wax my hands and feet in months, probably once in 3-4 months, when I feel like. For most practical and cost effective purposes, I shave off the forest on my limbs 😛 And I have been doing that for many years, without any problems. Shaving myths are galore, and I feel shaving is a very easy process with no side effects.
Coming to the product, this shaving foam or cream is a thick creamy substance. It is a pale yellow cream, which becomes a rich lather with water. I dampen my skin with water and gently apply this cream. It gives such a nice lather. And the fragrance, I am smitten with this warm vanilla scent. The delicious scent makes the shaving ritual more enjoyable.
I exfoliate my skin, dampen and apply the shaving gel. Then, I use a clean razor, in the direction opposite to the hair growth; smooth as butter. Yes, the shaving foam gives a clean and smooth shave, with no nicks and cuts. I don’t feel the need to go the same area twice if my razor blade is sharp. Otherwise, I repeat it twice. Presence of the foam reduces friction, makes shaving hassle free, and helps to see clearly how much area is left to be shaved.
It doesn’t stick to the blades and washes off easily. My legs feel satiny smooth. It doesn’t strip off moisture, in fact adds moisture and gives a smooth hair-free skin. It doesn’t irritate at all. I have used it on underarms, inner thighs and so on, the shaving has always been 10 times better than with a regular soap. Plus, no harm to sensitive areas. I wish this variant was easily available in India, I would have repurchased it forever.
