      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good but expensive shave gel

      'Menscience Advanced Shave Formula' is a shaving gel with a difference - it doesn't foam up, yet claims to provide "Unique, super slick lubrication, allowing blades to glide over the skin without scraping".

      Price & Availability
      - - - - - - - - - - - -
      The shave formula is available from mankind.co.uk - in terms of the product's price, well here's the bit where you need to sit down and pour yourself a stiff drink... the 165ml tube retails at £22.50. Yes, it's a lot of money to pay for some shaving gel, no matter how good it is.

      Ingredients
      - - - - - - - -
      The gel's ingredients are pretty basic, and simply consist of; Allantoin, Aloe, Azulene, Glycerin, Salicylic Acid, and Tea Tree Extract. White in colour, the shave formula is rich and creamy in consistency. The aroma is pretty much non-existent - there's no smell to speak of except for a very mild chemically scent (not unpleasant, I hasten to add).

      Directions
      - - - - - - -
      The packaging actually states that for best results you should shave in the shower - however, as I prefer to shave whilst in front of a mirror, they're instructions that I choose to ignore. To use, you simply spread a layer on your stubble / beard and leave on for one or two minutes before you start shaving.

      The Gel in Practice
      - - - - - - - - - - - -
      My experiences with the gel have been very good - I have found that it provides a very close shave, and leaves skin soft and smooth. The fact that there's no foaming doesn't seem to make a difference to the effectiveness of the gel - in practical terms it actually makes the shaving process easier as you can see and bits of stubble that you may have missed. After the shave, my skin feels moisturised, and as long as i'm using a decent razor, I don't get razor burn / shaving rash.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - - - -
      Overall, Advanced Shave Formula is an excellent gel which works extremely well, and helps provide a clean shave - the only downside is the hefty price-tag, which quite frankly is excessive for a product of this nature.
