Queen of…Shaving Gel Review

Queen of

Have you heard of Queen Of…Shaving Gel?

While at Target (as I seem to be every single weekend) I was buying something I needed for once; razor blades. But then out of the corner of my eye, near the regular boring cans of shaving cream I saw a SUPER CUTE tube of something. No wait, TWO super cute tubes of something! I saw the crown, saw the word “Queen” and I was already sold!

Yep, total packaging SUCKER right here.

Queen of…is actually a brand from England (but of course) owned by The King Of Shaves Company Ltd. Who KNEW there was an entire kingdom devoted to shaving? :)

So because of the adorable packaging and affordable price ($3.99), I decided to get them both since I was running low on shave gel anyway. And yes, I ONLY use gel not cream because I find it lasts longer and is smoother.

There are two kinds of this gel. One is called Ta-da! and the other is Ooh la la!

Both of them are paraben and perfume free. They both are a low foaming formula and help moisturize your skin after shaving.

Seriously, who can resist this? Someone made from STONE perhaps.

Queen of 3

Ooh la la! contains Aloe Vera to help sooth your skin.

Queen of 4

Ta-da! contains tea tree oil which is supposed to help refresh dull skin.

And one of the best things is the company is cruelty-free. As you can see, they prefer animals as pets, not research tools. :)

The gel that I normally use and have been using for as long as I can remember is Skintimate Shave Gel. That one has always been a favorite of mine because I love how thick and nice the gel gets, and I like the scents.

This gel is pretty different than Skintimate because you don’t see it foam up. It feels more like a lotion when you put it on, and you can’t really see it once it’s on your skin. So it almost seems as though it wouldn’t work very well. I had this notion that the thicker the foam, the better the shave. But that is nonsense.

It works very well, providing a nice slippery surface for your razor to glide across without catching your skin at all. I get a really nice close shave with this gel, and a little amount goes a long way. My legs feel smooth and nice afterwards!

Availability: Target or you can search their website online

Pricing: $3.99 each

    Did you get to try both of them? Did you notice a difference between the two; which did you prefer? I would probably try Ooh La La first. :)

      Hi Christina,

      I have only used Ooh La La so far but really like it!

    Very cute indeed and quite affordable!

    I am such a sucker for good packaging too & love love love retro looking pinup girls (Hello! Soap & Glory!) I haven’t seen this yet at my Target, but will be on the lookout for it!

    I have Ta-Da! When I discovered that the Bed, Bath, and Beyond across from my place started a beauty section (has anyone checked this out? they have kind of a big drugstore-type section now and are actually extremely well stocked, kind of like a drugstore on steriods, which I highly recommend, but I digress), I found these and bought one because I was unable to resist the packaging (and the price was good). I am waiting to run out of the one I am using (Alba) to try it. I am with you on not liking the traditional “shaving cream” types…I find that they work well when the can is full, but then not so much, plus they leave rust rings in the shower, and worst of all it also sometimes seems like I have more irritatation after shaving!

    I don’t use blades on my legs that often since I prefer my Silk Epile from Braun. But if I’m in a rush and I need to shave having a good gel can be useful. Hope I can find this one where I lve… or online.

    I haven’t seen these before, but they certainly look like something I’d be interested in!

    I love Kiss My Face Shave Cream. Started using it a few years ago. The cream doesn’t lather but it’s like this gel in that it provides the right amount of slip for a close shave. I love the packaging because it’s comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. So no dealing with rust rings from a metal can and the pump is so convenient in the shower. Plus a bottle lasts forever even if you shave every day. I’m partial to the Lavender scent but they have a nice assortment plus unscented. I even converted my husband to it.

    Oooh, I might have to give these a try! I’m bad, I normally just shave with water *lowers head in shame*. I just have very few, very fine, very blonde hairs on the ol’ legs, so shaving is sort of an afterthought. Of course, I probably should amend my approach, as I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten *cough* older, the skin on my arms & legs is drier, le sigh…
    I see you said they’re perfume-free, do they have any scent to them though? Well, I may grab them up next time I’m at the Tar-jay, if I remember ;-)

    I’ve been using Avene for Men shaving cream on the, um, more delicate areas of my anatomy, and I really love it but it’s painfully expensive for larger areas like my legs. I might have to look into one of these next time I’m in the US.

    love the packaging and the price. I currently use Bath and Body Works Shave the Day which I really like but it’s $12 so I would be willing to try this when I run out.

    I tried these a little while ago and was wondering what the difference between the two was, so there we go! I went for Ooh La La! purely for its packaging, and liked it, but since I ran out I’ve started using conditioner instead – it actually seems to work better, perhaps because it moisturises and can’t strip any moisture away.

    I really, really like Queen Of…’s brand identity though, so much nicer than any of the other brands I’ve seen. :D
