Lavender Sandalwood Shaving Cream


DIY Shaving Cream

Jenni from Jenni Raincloud here!  Happy Beautiful Skin Friday!  The season for bare legs is coming at us quickly-pasty, hairy, ashy legs are just not going to work-AS IF!  Yeah, I just quoted Clueless.  Sorry about that.  Anyway, for the past year or so I have struggled with finding the right razor.  Nothing seemed to work-either the razor was surrounded by chemically enhanced junk or I would get cuts and burns and still have stubble.  That was until I gave in and started using shaving cream.  Making your own shaving cream is so fun and could not be easier.  You will love how it conditions the skin, leaving legs smooth and moisturized.  Oh, and a close shave?  Yes.  Shaving cream will give you that close shave that is a must for those daisy dukes-just kidding-I don’t wear daisy dukes but you know what I mean.  Oh, and this recipe is excellent for stubbly faces!  Men need shaving cream more than anyone so this is for the guys too!

For the rest of this post head to Beautiful Skin Friday @ Primally Inspired!

    This shaving cream looks wonderful, and Jenni if I may suggest, try a single blade safety razor for a close shave and no need for constant cleaning as you shave.

    I love sandlewood but it’s so expensive! Is it really necessary for best results or could I sub something more affordable ?

      Sue-Sub it for sure! I like to experiment by using a drop on q-tips then smelling different combos together! You could just omit it all together but almost everything smells great with lavender!

    >I have struggled with finding the right razor.
    You’re not the only one. What’s happened to decentcheap disposable razors? I used to just grab a bag of pink razors and they worked well, now it’s like they rip every hair our individually!
    (I’ve tried every reasonably priced brand) The best I’ve found is Gilette Venus, too bu they cost so much for something that just gets tossed out, but they work well and are comfortable to use.

    HI jenni,
    Are all the ingredients just mixed together and you’re ready to use?
    I was thinking of using Lavender and rose geranium EO’s,Sandalwood is just too expensive as much as I love the scent.

    I just found your blog and website and I can’t wait to try all of these DIY!!! I love the idea of safe, natural ingredients. I do have a question; I am allergic to avocado and a few other things some of your recipes have like ACV (apples). What could I substitute in lieu of these ingredients?

      Elizabeth-Thank you!! Any oil could be substituted for avocado-I think Sweet Almond Oil would be a great substitute. Witch Hazel would be a good substitute for ACV!
