My husband recently tried out Somersets Shaving Oil, and he couldn’t stop talking about what a great shave he got with it. And I had to agree, his face was noticably smoother!
It turns out that Somersets has a line of women’s shaving oils, so I decided to try them for myself. The process is a little different than you might be used to, but I promise you that it’s worth the effort.
Instead of lathering up your legs with traditional shaving gel or foam, you simply put 4-5 drops of Somersets Extra Sensitive Shaving Oil in your hand, and massage it into your (already wet) legs. Wait for the 8 essential oils to soften the hair, and then start shaving.
While it seemed a little strange at first (since I couldn’t see where I shaved already), you get used to it quickly. The difference was remarkable, the oil creating a lubrication barrier between the skin and the razor, providing more glide for a truly comfortable shave. It left my skin extra soft and moisturized, I didn’t even have to use any lotion afterwards!
The whole experience was a real eye-opener. The scent is great (it smells like the Aveda store), my legs feel incredibly soft, and the oils are actually good for my skin.
I call it a win-win-win.
