An all natural shaving cream specifically for those of you with sensitive skin!

Hey Guys!

I thought I'd share my thoughts with you about a product I've been using for the past couple of months. It is the Kiss My Face Moisture Shave. Let me give you a little bit of backround info on what possessed me to purchase this product.

I shave my legs 1-3 times a week. It really depends on how irritated my legs are. I have very sensitive skin.. so, by the third day after I've shaved.. my legs and thighs are irritated with razor burn. Sometimes I get it pretty bad.. sometimes I'm lucky and don't get it at all.. but for the most part I get it quite often. It also happens quite frequently with my armpits. By the third day.. I'm scratching the heck out of them & it's a little unpleasant to shave over. It's like shaving when you have the goosebumps.

So, one day I started to browse what products Kiss My Face has to offer with high ratings, as I tried their "Big Body Shampoo" and loved it. I came across reviews for "Moisture Shave". Once I started reading the reviews.. many of the reviewers suffered the same problem as me and looked to this product as their solution. (You can read the reviews by clicking here.

Kiss My Face Moisture Shave comes in 7 different scents. Fragrance Free, Key Lime, Lavender and Shea, Cool Mint, Peaceful Patchouli, Peaches and Creme and Vanilla Earth. Kiss My Face Moisture Shave claims to be the #1 natural shave "on the planet". 

Product Description (for cool mint - which is the one I have)

My Review: Like I said, I've been using this product for around two months now and it has helped me SO much. I'm able to shave more often now because my legs aren't always irritated like they use to be. The consistency is almost like a soap that lathers like a thin cream. I like to let it "sit" on my legs for a minute before I shave to let the oils sort of penetrate in my skin. It allows me to get a very close shave and it makes my legs very soft and silky. And, I love that it's all natural and it contains so many different oils and extracts that are great for your skin.

You can find this product at your local Target or Whole Foods as well as some select Natural stores. You can click here for a store location in your area.

  8. I wish I could get this in the UK, because it sounds just what I need. Oh well, must find something else, or resort to buying tons of expensive hair removal cream. :(
