MY STORY: Given that skin isn’t limited just to faces I thought I’d share this treat for the rest of the body!
I came across this when I was looking for something to help with hair removal. I was in the process of getting laser hair treatment and was told I could no longer epilate or wax, shaving was the only option.
There was only 1 problem, my skin hated to be shaved! I would quickly start feeling prickly from hair growth less than 24 hours and would develop scabby ingrown hairs which would scar.
I tried moisturising and exfoliating with bath gloves and whilst these certainly helped, it wasn’t until I used this product that my skin could tolerate shaving without becoming a dry rough and irritated.
The sweet smelling oil is applied to wet skin, it emulsifies into a milky smooth texture which you can use as a moisturising shower gel or shaving cream.
There isn’t much lather but a little oil goes a long way when mixed with water.
Skin is left soft and moisturised and is much less irritated after shaving.
A must for sensitive skins prone to irritation related to shaving or those with dry skins who need a gentle alternative to shower gel.
AIM: A decadent body cleanser that is rich in almond oil and features a foaming oil-to-milk texture that leaves skin satiny-smooth.
Almond oil – naturally rich in omega 6 fatty acids
Grape seed oil
Sunflower seed oil
DIRECTIONS: use on wet skin in shower as a skin cleanser/shaving foam.
PROS: moisturising cleanser for dry skins, a little goes a long way, excellent for shaving and preventing in grown hairs.
CONS: pricey, product can emulsify in the bottle if comes into contact with water.
