~Pure and Delicate~
Gillette offer a number of shaving related products and today, I will be reviewing the 'Pure and Delicate Shave Gel'.
This shave gel is free from dye and fragrance as well as being dermatologically tested so is suitable for those with sensitive skin. Gillette claim that this shave gel is designed to reduce irritation associated with shaving and should leave your skin soft and smooth after shaving. The gel is presented in a rather simple, metal can with a push down dispenser underneath the plastic lid. The can has a basic design - white and green. The can is suitable for recycling once empty. I find the packaging to be practical given the type of product but it does need wiped to ensure the gel doesn't leave a sticky coating on the can.
~Where To Buy~
At the moment, you can purchase a 200ml can of this shave gel from Boots and www.boots.com for £3.49.
I have sensitive skin which often becomes irritated whilst shaving. I actually bought a can of this shave gel before Christmas last year and I am still using the same can. I always opt for Gillette shaving gels as I find them to be the best on the market. £3.49 may seem expensive but given that I have had around 8 months use (and there is still plenty left) from this can, it actually represents good value for money in my opinion. I normally use a scented gel but find this is much nicer on my skin.
This shaving gel is easy to use but as with others, it can become quite messy if you apply too much. The gel dispenses easily and I cannot stress how important it is that you do not apply too much pressure to the dispenser as you do not need much gel per use. The gel itself is initially a bit cloudy looking and starts to turn into a white foam when rubbed on to damp skin. A little goes a long way and you do get a lot of soft, creamy foam from a small spot of gel. Okay, the can says 'fragrance free' but there is a very natural clean and fresh scent evident which is pleasant and totally natural smelling.
The foam created is quite rich and feels smooth against my sensitive skin. I find that it provides substantial coating to my skin to ensure that my skin is cushioned against a razor blade. I mainly use it on my legs and around my bikini area where my skin is quite bumpy and sore. I am pleased by how well this shaving gel performs. My skin feels protected and my razor blade simply glides along removing any hairs and leaving me fuzz free. The foam is easily rinsed from the razor along with any hair and I find that it works well with disposable razors as it protects my skin from nippy cuts whilst giving a close shave.
If I am shaving my underarms in the shower, I use the tiniest blob of this gel and find that my sensitive underarms appreciate the foam layer but I find it a little too messy to use outwith the shower if I just want to do my underarms so use soap and water on these occasions. I definitely notice a difference between how my underarms feel after using this compared to soap. After shaving my legs, underarms or bikini area, there is a slightly film left on the surface of my skin but this disappears when rinsed.
I am impressed by how well this shaving gel performs. Not only does it protect my sensitive skin from cuts, my skin is left feeling soft and beautifully smooth after shaving. Compared to regular Gillette shaving gels, I would say that this one leaves my skin looking and feeling better. The bumps aren't as red and I don't feel quite so nervous about showing off my legs as they appear less irritated. I have never experienced any irritation from using this shaving gel and find it to be incredibly kind to my skin. It doesn't dry it out either.
This is a great quality shaving gel which is perfectly suitable for those who have really sensitive skin. It lasts well and leaves my skin looking and feeling good. My 200ml can has had a lot of use and by my judgement (shaking the can), there is still a good amount left. I would happily buy this again as it suits my skin and offers a great level of protection from a sharp razor blade. Highly recommended!
Thanks for reading :)
