DIY Ultra-Moisturizing Shaving Lotion

Sharing is caring!

Say goodbye to razor burn with this ultra moisturizing homemade shave lotion. It is so easy to make and will leave your skin so soft and smooth!

I don't know about you, but my skin absolutely hates fall and winter.

So about this time of year I really have to start pampering my skin a little bit more by whipping up some homemade body butters, scrubs and lip balms and really work to nourish my skin.

One of the hardest things to do with dry, irritated skin is shave it, right?

But unless you are ok with not shaving for the fall and winter 🙂 a moisturizing shaving lotion or cream is a must.

Unfortunately there are a lot of nasty ingredients hiding in that popular brand of Barbasol Shaving Cream, including synthetic fragrance and propane!

Seriously people, propane in shaving cream?

Question? Why the soap? Is it for glide or slickness?

It does improve the glide of the razor but you could try leaving it out if you prefer.

I'm sorry. Andrea, what type of brush? A dry brush? Do you use your own shaving cream, then the brush, and suggest this recipe? Before or after shaving?
