I don’t use shaving cream. Is that weird?
I guess it may seem weird at first, but it works out really well for me, because I’ve found something that works better.
But not just any soap. See, most of the bars and bottles you pick up at the store, are detergents. The big difference is that they’ve had the natural glycerin, which is the moisturizing and softening component, removed.
So, if you’ve ever tried to use commercial soap in place of shaving cream, you’re probably thinking I’m crazy – and I don’t blame you!
I use homemade soap – preferably goat milk soap, because I’m a goat milk soap nut, but honestly, any homemade/natural soap works. Like I said, it’s all about the glycerin.
I find that this soap works even better than shaving cream because it good for my skin, and I don’t get a razor full of foam (am I the only one who thinks that’s maddening?).
It also simplifies my bathroom routine because its one less product I have to stock, one less thing to worry about running out of, and one less thing to clean around.
Oh, and did I mention that it saves money? Of course, there’s the fact that I make my own soap, which saves money, but even if you buy homemade or natural soap, it’s going to be cheaper in the long run because you use so little of it.
I’ve been using soap instead of shaving cream for years. In fact, I bought a little travel can of shaving cream one time to take on a trip and was appalled. Now I take soap, and only soap.
Am I crazy?
