How To Chhose A Shaving Cream Pure Shave London

Shaving Cream Buyer’s Guide

Choosing the right shaving cream is a key step to getting a clean, smooth shave. Compare two shaving creams side by side, and they might look identical at first glance, but the difference in formulation becomes evident after a few weeks of use. Stripping your skin of moisture, many shaving creams result in dry, tight and irritated skin prone to redness. So, how do you know which shaving creams to try and which to avoid?

When buying men’s shaving creams, the two ingredients to avoid are SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) and fragrance. Don’t get us wrong, we love a pleasant scent as much as the next person, but it has no place on freshly shaved skin. You can find out more about the pitfalls of SLS in our other blogs, but suffice to say, it’s not something you want in your skincare. Instead, look for naturally moisturising ingredients such as coconut oil, sweet almond oil or shea butter.
