The search for the perfect shave gel has been on for years!
Once I started chasing this non-toxic life, I realized it might be even harder (and it was) to find an option that fit my needs.
Finally, I have found the gel that is both safe and works great!
First, we should be clear about one thing: typical gels/foams are toxic!
Click here to see if your current brand is releasing toxins into your family’s skin.
With so many toxic options out there, it can be discouraging to those thinking about going non-toxic.
This is why I write and keep this blog, friends!
Let me make it easy! You have answers and options!
Option 1: In-Store
I get that a lot of us are on-the-go, so I love to share in-store options that you can feel safe about when you just need a quick grab-and-go.
Option 2: A Trusted Source
Young Living promises only clean and fairly sourced products. Our family trusts Young Living because they are reliable and their products simply…work.
Option 3: DIY
Here’s the DIY solution I love so much!
There’s one trick I have learned from all my in-shower DIY projects, and that is this: the dispenser makes all the difference!
I can’t tell you how many times I have thrown away perfectly good “shower proof” bottles from rust!
The bottle linked below has been in my shower for a couple months while this gel was in testing mode, and it still works like a charm!
½ cup liquid castile soap
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup pure aloe vera gel
½ teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable glycerine
1 Tablespoon vitamin E oil
6 drops Purification essential oil
5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil/blend of oils (I used Lavender because it is the Swiss Army Knife of oils, and is wonderful for skin!).
Add all ingredients into the foaming soap dispenser, and give a gentle swirl to mix together.
You’ll need to do this swirl before each use.
It doesn’t look like it makes much, but this lasted two whole months here. I’ve never tried to double it, but I don’t see why you couldn’t!
I love this shave gel and especially enjoy how my legs feel when I follow up with this Three Ingredient Non-Toxic Lotion.
I hope you enjoy it, too!
It’s such a neutral smell, so both men and women can enjoy! If the man in your life doesn’t like the smell of lavender, feel free to add some Frankincense oil instead.
It’s funny how such a simple product can improve the health of our skin so much! I like how easy this is to use and how great it makes my skin feel.
It’s definitely a keeper!
