Our skin is our largest organ, and we go to great lengths to protect it. But if you’re skipping shave gel in the shower, you’re not doing all you can to care for your skin. An amazing shave gel can be the difference between so-so skin and show-off skin.
1) Protect your skin
Using shave gels is a great way to shield your delicate skin. Shave gels create a luxurious layer between the blade and your skin, allowing razors to glide with ease and protecting you from nicks, cuts and razor burn. Our rich shave gels produce a cushion effect that soap and water alone cannot replicate. So wear that sassy skirt or short shorts with the confidence that your legs are flawless.
2) Soft leads to smooth
It’s vital to soften skin and hair before you shave. But before you reach for the soap, consider this: Soap cleanses skin, removing dirt and essential oils, leaving your skin dry and vulnerable. Water softens skin but evaporates too quickly to be effective. Our ultra-creamy shave gels reduce water evaporation from the skin and keep hair hydrated, ensuring an incredibly comfortable shave.
3) Forget the guessing game
If you shave with soap and water, it’s hard to keep track of where your razor has passed. Shave gel makes it easy to see where the blades have already shaved, so you can stop shaving the same spot over and over again (something that can irritate the skin—fast).
4) Helps protect skin from moisture loss while shaving
One of the best and most important benefits of a shaving product is helping protect the skin against moisture loss while shaving. Soap and water can dry out your skin. Our best shave gel lineup— Venus with Touch of Olay Vanilla Cashmere, Venus with Touch of Olay Sugarberry Bliss and Venus with Touch of Olay Violet Swirl —provides 5x more moisturizers than Ivory bar soap. We bet you won’t be able to stop touching your silky skin (and neither will that special someone; double bonus).
5) A match for your skin type
Your skin is as unique as your personality, and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all shave gel solution. That’s why it’s important to find the shave gel that’s perfect for you. Gillette Venus considers all skin types—from sensitive skin to dry skin—when developing our shave gel formulas. So, no matter your skin type, Gillette Venus has the shave gel formula that’s a perfect match for you.
