Dr. Bronner's Magic Organic Shaving Soap Gel Lavender -- 7 fl oz
There are many things I like about this product. It smells nice, it lathers when you rub it between your hands before applying, the shave itself is good, and most importantly, it's a Dr. Bronner's product, so I know that it was created with integrity-- that means organic and wholesome ingredients.
Think about it... when you shave, you're opening up the pores of your face to whatever product you're using to shave with. Have you ever read the ingredients in commercial shaving creams? They contain all kinds of bizarre chemicals. Makes no sense to me, especially when there are great natural alternatives.
I don't work for Dr. Bronner's, but I do work in health/environmental education... which is why I think about these issues. If you think a bit of chemical exposure in your shaving cream is not going to cause any problem, consider this. We're surrounded by 70-80,000 different chemicals in this modern world. Everything we do, from cleaning our floors, to doing laundry, to putting on deodorant, to painting our walls, and all else, has the potential to expose us to toxins--or not.
We can worry about it, or we can say there's no sense in trying to avoid these chemicals that can disrupt our hormones, cause cancer, affect reproduction and more. I suggest just focusing on choosing healthful alternatives to the product that you're looking to replace today. That's it. No stress, no worries. By the end of the year, you've gotten rid of most of the dangerous chemicals that most families, unfortunately, never even know are impacting their health. Easy!

After running out of my favorite shave lotion from Trader Joes (none in my state) I wanted a good, natural replacement. Tried this shave gel out and while it wasn't the cream I'm used to, I am totally in love. Very non-drying, light pleasant fragrance, and provides a fantastic smooth shave. Definitely a new fan!

Awesome shaving soap!
I realized how disgusting the barbasol I had been using to shave with smelled and that I was otherwise using very natural cosmetics, so I decided to give this a try. I really like it, it's very effective and makes for smooth shaving and a little bit goes a very long way. It is very liquid-y, though, so I store it upside down (cap side up, leaned against the wall of the medicine cabinet) so that it won't leak everywhere.

I am hooked on Dr. Bronner's products......this one is great!! The color is a little strange but it works!! Smells fantastic and gives me a closer shave than any other product I tried! No irritation either, and I am super sensitive.

Not the greatest shaving cream...
It is no better than using the Dr. Bronner's liquid soap to shave your legs. I appreciate the quality ingredients this brand uses but I just don't think this is all that useful a product...my boyfriend tried it on his face and agreed...it is quite liquid like the soap.
