Down to Earth Handmade Products: Shaving Soap

Shaving. If you're a woman, it's just part of life. Especially in the warmer months. But I'll admit, I despise shaving my legs. I'm either in a huge hurry & nick myself or my shaving cream just doesn't like me. 

The owner & creator of Down to Earth Handmade Products was kind enough to send me some Shaving Soap to try after my curiosity got the best of me. Which I am so glad it did!

There was just a bit if Shaving Soap that made it's way out of the bottle during shipping, therefore just a bit of bleeding on the label.

This Shaving Soap is like a shaving cream, soap & lotion in one! I opted for an unscented version since I usually go for the sensitive skin formulas when shaving my legs. But there are a handful of scents including Sweet Vanilla & lemongrass that I think I might have to get.

With the appearance of a liquid soap I started to wonder how good this was really going to work. Especially since it's far from the creams & lathers I'm used to when shaving. The first swipe of my razor I realized I was applying way too much pressure, even though it was the same amount as always. So I lightened up & finished, expecting to feel a bunch of stubble & missed spots when I ran my hand over.

I was shocked! No stubble & no missed spots! Then I realized it was just like what my dentist told me about brushing my teeth - you don't have to apply so much pressure to get the job done. Even though I never realized that's what I had been doing. 

I was even more shocked that I didn't have any stubble the next morning. It was the closest shave I think I've ever had, with no nicks or irritations.
