Product Review - Smooth
Everyone knows that Sliquid makes a great lube, so I was curious about their shaving product, Smooth, when those nice people at Babeland sent me a bottle. It’s meant to be extra good for shaving, especially on your delicate bits.
Smooth comes out of the bottle looking like lube, it’s a clear almost gel that’s chock full of ingredients that are good for your skin: mango and shea butter, green tea extract, vitamin E, Aloe Vera. It’s also vegan friendly and not animal tested.
With the ingredients examined, there was nothing left to do but hop in the shower and give it a try. In the interest of science I decided to shave half using the Smooth and half using my normal shaving cream, so that I would be able to tell if there was a difference between the two.
What I liked: Because the Smooth shaving gel is clear, I found it a lot easier to use than my normal shaving cream; it was easy to see exactly what I was doing, where I wanted to stop, etc. It also left my skin feeling soft and I did find it a little easier to shave that side, possibly because the gel did work to soften the hair.
In comparison with my normal sensitive skin shaving cream, however, the Smooth gel didn’t really give me less razor bumps, as far as I could tell.
What I didn’t like: Well, there wasn’t really anything that I didn’t like about Smooth.
I think it held up well against my shaving cream and I’m curious to try it on my legs next. ^_^
Smooth definitely earned it’s 8.5 out of 10
