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