==Tesco Value Shaving Foam==
Every now and again I decide that we need to be saving more and watching our pennies so with this in mind I try and cut back on some little things that soon mount up to quite a good deal of savings int he long run. A good while ago I thought that I would try out this Tesco Value Shaving foam for both me and Himself. Before this i would always buy a cheapish ladies shaving foam or gel and Himself would have to have a branded one which can work out rather costly.
This can of value shaving foam costs aroun 38 pence for a 250 ml size. This is exceptionally good value for money as it is actually a little larger than some of the cans that we have been buying before and a ton less money. Okay it was a foam and not a gel which Himself wasnt' too keen on at first but for the money saving I thought it was certainly worth giving it a go.
The basic look of the can is not very appealing or exciting and it is the classic blue, red and white colours of all the Tesco value range. There is a photo of a man with shaving foam on his face which indicates for those who can't read exactly what this product is for. it even says on the the front of the can that this shaving foam is a "no fancy formula, but it still helps to improve shave glide".
Using the product is just how I would for any other shaving foam and that is to make sure that the can has had a good shake before trying to get any of the foam out so that the gas is not used up before you have got all the product out. The foam comes out easily from the can and you have to be careful not to get too much as this is easily done. I find that I don't need an excessive amount to do one leg at a time and I need an even smaller bit to do under my arms.
The foam which comes out of the can is white and foamy as you would expect. There is not really any fragrance at all to the product and to be fair it is a very basic product which is just like a bit of lubrication for when shaving and it gives nothing more and nothing less. I find that it really seems to do the job perfectly well and I can't see why, having used this product and finding it works just as good as a product which costs three times as much, I would ever go back to using a more expensive branded shaving foam/gel.
Himself is pretty much of the same opinion and we have now said we are happy to continue using this very cheap foam instead of all the branded ones we get and we even share the can. You think with both of us using it on a very regular basis that the can wouldn't last too long but surprisingly one can will last well over two weeks and I find I don't even have to pick a can up with my fornightly shopping.
All in all this Tesco Value Shaving Foam is nothing more or nothing less than you would expect from any other foam or shaving product. It didn't cause any irritation to my skin (which can be slightly sensitive) and it worked at helping the whole shaving experience not be anything harsh or sore. i think for the price everyone would be happy to give it a go and it would probably surprise you!
I think a top score of 5 out of 5 stars but its just a shame we have to hide the can away!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
Summary: A great product for the price
