Icky, sad, depressing fact: many shaving products are tested on animals. Another whack reality is that a lot of shaving products contain animal ingredients. WOMPS.
Thirdly, a less depressing but still somewhat of a bummertude: we ladies are expected by society to weed wack our leg scruffies and arm pit fros.
DISCLAIMER: I’m all for flaunting my body fur (you can ask my hubby, this is not a rare occurance 😉 ), but every once in a while I like to assist my body in keeping cool temps by layering down (gettin’ my shave on). Don’y worry y’all, I’m a feminist through and through, and this has nothing to do with whether I’m hairy or not on any given day.
Anyhoo, here are a handful of pretty awesome vegan and cruelty-free shave products! Feel free to add to the list in the comments section below.
Preserve Razor, $8.50 – This is not my favorite vegan razor (too gentle, not as hardcore as Personna’s) but I feel it’s worth mentioning because it’s super eco. It’s made from recycled yogurt cups, it’s unisex, easy to grip, and is completely recyclable after use.
Kiss My Face Moisture Shave, $6.99 – The is a rich and silky shaving cream that makes shaving a breeze. It’s made with antiseptic goldenseal and peppermint to cool and stimulate, arnica, orange flower, sage, soapwaort, lemon grass, vitamins A & E, and emollients olive oil, coconut oil, and aloe vera for healing. It’s moisture-rich and is available in these four scents – Patchouli, Cool Mint, Key Lime and Unscented.
Marzena Hands Free Sensitive Hair Remover Lotion, $8.69 – This fast-working (we’re talkin’ 3 minutes!), hands-free formula from Marzena is simple to use and very effective. It has a unique roll-on formula for a very quick and clean treatment that’s ideal for delicate areas of the body like face, bikini, underarms, and legs. Best part is that it’s a no mess sitch – just wash off with water!
Earth Science Moisturizing Shave Cream, $7.99 – This non-aerosol crème provides a close, non-irritating shave without drying your skin. It’s a super gentle formula with azulene, comfrey, and aloe to moisturize and soothe.
