DIY shaving cream with essential oils

18 May 7, 2018 - DIY, Skin

Ladies, no more bundling our bodies in warm clothes. Now that cooler weather is on its way out, weekly shaving is back on the radar. For smooth, moisturized skin, it’s necessary to find an amazing shaving cream, but that can be challenging when so many commercial products include harmful ingredients or excessive foam that makes it tough to see what you’re doing! We’ve come up with a substitute for traditional shaving cream that’s all natural, light, and super silky. The best part is it moisturizes your skin while you shave—and you can create it yourself! Enjoy a product that’s easy to use, easy to apply, and easier to love! Here’s how to make it:

A: The tub may become slippery with excessive use. We suggest sitting on the side of the tub when shaving your legs; it’s comfortable that way, too!
