Traditional Shave Cream and Sensitive Shave Gel

Shaving is part of the daily routine for most men. Our goal is to change the perception that it’s a daily chore and is instead, view this morning ritual as little bit of time for yourself. A few minutes of grooming that leaves you feeling fresh and with a sense of accomplishment after eliminating the scruff.

We want to make it as easy for you as possible to achieve a satisfying shave by providing the right tools for the job.


What are you looking for in a Shave Cream and a Shave Gel?


Firstly, you want anything you use on your face daily to be free from undesirable ingredients like parabens, SLS and SLES. A general rule of thumb, if the ingredients are well considered (ours most certainly are!) then the product has been crafted to treat your skin in the best possible manner.

Here at The Real Shaving Co. don’t just leave out the bad stuff, we add in lots of extra conditioning ingredients too. Our Traditional Shave Cream contains willow bark extract that helps to stimulate cell renewal and lead to smoother skin. Meanwhile, cocoa seed butter aids in moisturising and soothing the skin for those close-shaved days to help avoid a rash. Similarly, our Moisturising Shave Gel contains aloe-vera extract to help quell irritated skin and calendula oil to help combat skin dryness.


How to pick the right product for you!


We’ve made it pretty straight forward for you, our Shaving lubricators are Cream or Gel and what you use totally comes down to personal preference. If you are new to The Real Shaving Co. our best suggestion is to try our best-selling Traditional Shave Cream. Simply head into your local retailer and try it for yourself. You won’t look back!

Each product has been created to cater for different skin types. Read more about skin types to find out what will work best for you.

We hope you enjoy that freshly shaved feeling and the scratchy 5 o’clock shadow is a thing of the past.
