Shaving: Five Reasons To Switch To Shaving Cream

Five Reasons To Switch To Shaving Cream 


Shaving is a daily task that most men and women have to undertake, and the products used for it play a critical role in achieving the desired results. Traditionally, shaving foam and gel have been the go-to options for many people. However, there has been a recent trend towards using shaving cream and more importantly naturally based products. In this blog post, we will outline five reasons why you should switch to shaving cream for your daily routine.

1 – Provides a Closer Shave

One of the significant advantages of using shaving cream is that it provides a closer shave than traditional foams or gels. The cream is thicker and lathers up easily, providing a smooth surface for the razor to glide over. This makes it easier to achieve a closer shave and results in smoother skin.

According to a study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, shaving cream has been found to provide a closer shave than foam or gel due to the creamy texture that helps the razor glide over the skin more smoothly.

2 – Reduces Skin Irritation

Shaving can be harsh on the skin, resulting in irritation, razor burn, and ingrown hairs. Shaving creams can help to alleviate these issues as they can contain natural ingredients such as aloe vera, sweet almond oil, and shea butter. These ingredients provide a protective layer over the skin, reducing friction and moisturising the skin.

3 – Suitable for Sensitive Skin

Most creams are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The natural ingredients used in some shaving creams are gentle on the skin, making them an ideal choice for people with sensitive skin. Additionally, the thick lather of cream provides a cushioning effect that reduces the likelihood of cuts and nicks. As a result, this makes them an excellent choice for those who are prone to razor burn.

4 – Environmentally Friendly

Many creams are an environmentally friendly option as they often come in recyclable packaging and contain natural ingredients. Traditional items, on the other hand, can contain harmful chemicals that can dry your skin, pollute the environment and harm marine life.

5 – Cost-Effective

Using shaving cream can also be a cost-effective option as it lasts longer than traditional shaving foam or gel. The creams tend to be thicker and lather up easily, which means that you will need less product to achieve the same results. This means that you can save money in the long run by switching to shaving cream.

Cost-Effective: According to a review of products published by GQ Magazine, shaving creams are more cost-effective than foams or gels as they last longer and require less product per use.


Switching to shaving cream can have numerous benefits, including a closer shave, reduced skin irritation, suitability for sensitive skin, environmental friendliness, and cost-effectiveness. With so many advantages, it’s no wonder that creams are becoming a popular choice for many people. So, if you’re looking to improve your grooming routine, why not give Pure Shave a try?


Q: How do I use shaving cream?

A: To use shaving cream, wet your face with warm water and apply a small amount of cream to your fingertips. Rub your fingertips together to create a lather, then apply the lather to your face in circular motions. Shave as normal and rinse your face with cold water.

Q: Can a cream be used with an electric razor?

A: Most creams are designed to be used with a traditional razor. However, some electric razors are compatible with creams, gels or foams, so it’s best to check the manufacturer’s instructions before using a ‘wet’ based product with an electric razor.

Q: Is shaving cream suitable for women?

A: Yes, shaving cream is suitable for women. It provides a closer shave and is gentle on the skin, making it an excellent choice for women who shave their legs, underarms, or bikini area.
