I’m not one of those people who shaves everyday, but I do try to get to it about every two or three days so I don’t start looking all Swiss Family Robinson. Unfortunately, I also have somewhat sensitive skin, so if I do shave too often (even with proper pre-shaving), my face starts looking like I’ve had a run in with a cheese grater. In the past, I’d always gone with cheap shaving lotion that was supposed to have some sort of agent for sensitive skin, but none of them worked (imagine that cheapskate!).
Last week, I decided to spend just a smidge more, and purchased some Aveeno Therapeutic Shave Gel with Natural Colloidal Oatmeal because I thought it smelled good and I figured I couldn’t do any worse than what I had been. After using it several times in the past week, I have to say that this is some pretty nice stuff. It actually stays soapy for the duration of shaving, it seems to give my skin less irritation, and it smells really nice to boot (sorta like almonds mixed with oatmeal). So yeah, if you have to shave, this is some nice stuff.
