Rising up, my buddies largely realized their magnificence hacks from their older sisters.

And someday at observe after I was 15, I realized the one trick I might carry with me till this very day: shaving your legs with conditioner as a substitute of shaving cream. It made the hair softer, some senior informed me, and I by no means went again to the fluffy, aerosol formulation that clogged my razors once more.
Over time, I’ve tried — in useless — to discover a physique wash that would prep my legs for a easy shave simply as effectively, as utilizing up my conditioner twice felt wasteful (and costly.) However even a few of the extra high-end physique cleaners I’ve examined do not present the identical glide, and simply lead to razor burn and ingrown hairs.

One new body-care launch, although, has made me a convert: the Comfortable Providers Consolation Cleanse Extremely Soothing Bathe Gel.
I am already a fan of the model’s exfoliating merchandise. Its ketosis pilaris-fighting Buffing Bar lives perpetually in my bathe, so I used to be excited for a soothing components to observe it up with.

Past merely cleaning the pores and skin, Kreighbaum says that shaving was top-of-mind throughout the product growth stage.
“We knew that having an ultra-soothing razor glide is so necessary to stopping lots of the pores and skin issues we deal with, like ingrown hair and irritation because of razor burn,” Kreighbaum says. The workforce was capable of tweak the thickness of the water-gel to greatest cling to pores and skin throughout shaving as soon as it discovered nailed the suitable ratio for its hydrating and cleaning substances.
