What is waterless Women’s Shaving Gel & Do I Really Need it in My Life?
Shaving gel isn’t really something I use, I’m fine with shower gel and water. That is until I’m on the go, find a missed hair when there’s not a shower around or if it’s last minute date night. Here’s the pros and cons of Busy Beauty’s travel size showerless women’s shaving gel so you can decide for yourself whether your travel shaving kit or purse needs it or not.
I love trying new beauty products review so I was interested to give Busy Beauty’s waterless Shave gel a go. It’s a 3-in-1 pre-shave, shave and post-shave women’s shaving gel that requires no lathering, rinsing or washing a go. It’s also paraben free, alcohol free, cruelty free and 100% vegan.
When would this showerless women’s shaving gel be useful?
My first thought was, when would I actually need this?
Being a girl who showers twice a day; post-gym and before bed, sometimes 3 times if I’ve laid out in the sun, I wasn’t sure if I’d have a need for this product in my life. Until I had my eyelash extensions done! Boom! The perfect time to give it a go, since you have to avoid steam and water on your face for 24 hours. So out came the tube of showerless shaving gel.
There are so many other times it comes handy, such as:
- when your hair and/or makeups already done
- post surgery when can’t you can’t get dressings wet
- when you’ve missed a patch, which I always seem to have the talent of doing, especially when I’m in a rush.
How to use it
It’s super simple to use; you just apply the clear gel from the pump dispenser which makes it super easy to use, without creating a mess or having too much product. This creates a smooth surface that your razor easily glides over to shave as normal, minus the water. After you’re done you just apply more and rub in as a post shave moisturizer. The product is pretty much scent-free so it won’t interfere with your perfume.
The hair collects as it would normally in the back of the razor for disposal when ready. If you’re at a sink you can simply tap and rinse the blades, if there’s no water just carefully wipe clean until you can wash it properly.
Is it an effective post shave moisturizer
I still prefer using cocoa butter but in a pinch and especially when minimizing products for when I travel this is ideal. The fact that at 3.4oz it’s TSA approved means you can just throw it in your carry-on and go. The moisturizing, lubricants, and lotion hydrate to keep your skin soft and looking refreshed. I love the slight sheen it leaves.
Busy Beauty Showerless Women’s Shaving Gel Conclusion
This women’s shaving gel is a great one to keep on hand and to travel with. As it’s normally when you’ve forgotten or in a rush that this will come in handy. Busy Beauty describes it as perfect for sensitive skin as it contains natural essential oils. I experienced no razor burn, irritation or ingrown hairs which can sometimes happen when you try and dry-shave.
