If you are tired of painful shaving experiences with regular shaving cream, you probably haven’t tried beard oil yet!
When I switched from shaving cream to oil, a lot of things got better for me. I had better shaves and less irritation. I use oil from the kitchen cabinet most often. Olive oil works great.
If you haven’t tried to shave with oil instead of shaving cream you are really missing out. It’s a lot easier but there are also downsides. If I didn’t tell you about the negatives, it wouldn’t be right.
The biggest problem is that the shaving oil and facial hair clippings leave a sticky mess that has to be cleaned up. I imagine this is true for the sink as well. However, I generally shave in the shower.
Since I’m not the only person in the house, I need to clean the bathtub every time I shave or it just wouldn’t be polite to my sole roommate – who happens to be my wife.
So, be forewarned that shaving with oil is GREAT, but there is a downside. If you get a good shower cleaner it doesn’t take long to clean it all up. So, it’s really not as bad as it might have sounded.
Another trick a friend told me about is that he likes to mix several oils together and add a few drops of tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is awesome by the way. It has hundreds of purposes that go far beyond a great shave! Everyone should have some tea tree oil around.
So, that’s the secret to a better shave. Use oil instead of shaving cream! You’ll be a lot happier. Once you try it, please leave your comment below and let me know how it went for you.
