I’m going to break this down. I am an Egyptian mix with dark thick hair. If I can take even 5 minutes off my shaving time I’ll be ecstatic!!! I found this awesome tip on how to shave less, and save your razors all in one easy step!!!
While using traditional foams and creams is ok. Using oils allows you to get a closer shave while saving your razors. The oil prevents them from getting dull.
Baby Oil For Shaving vs. Baby Oil Gel For Shaving
Both can be used but the plain oil is harder to control, it’s also messy and there’s added danger if it gets on the shower floor. Baby oil gel is my personal preference for shaving because you can slather it on easily. The only down side to shaving with the oil gel is that you have to consistently rinse out your razor. It tends to clump a little but it’s worth the little bit of hassle.
Once out of the shower I immediately noticed how smooth and soft my legs were and what a CLOSE shave I had gotten from the baby oil gel! For me, it’s impossible to get a close shave because my hair is so think. I always end up with some sort of residual, even with a newer razor. The baby oil gel is going to save me HOURS!
