I’ll be the millionth to say it; shaving foam/gel is shite.
I’ve used oil and hair conditioner to shave with before, but doing this will clean your skin and give you a shaving medium at the same time with only two ingredients. If you wanted to be REALLY green, you could just shave using olive oil, or warmed coconut oil, but if you like a bit of foam with your shave, this will work.
- Empty plastic bottle.
- Your chosen brand of shower gel.
- Baby oil.
Fill the bottle with half shower gel, and half baby oil. Shake it. It will combine and product a thin liquid that feels silky on the skin, and lathers up.
This WILL separate in the bottle after each use, so all you need to do is shake prior to each use. You can use this anywhere on your body. Whenever I make it, I use a cheap basic shower gel, and whatever brand of baby oil I can get my hands on. It doesn’t need to be fancy pants, unless you want it to be. Add essential oils if you want, just don’t add more than ten drops.
That’s it. It’ll last you a good while too.
