I decided to go into a little more detail about being bald. Such as the things I recommend, such as shave cream.
My recommendation for this topic is to get the Cremo Shave Cream.
You will be more than pleased with the product as I am, and if you want to know more, let’s get into it.
If you happen to be bald, you can relate to this. It’s amazing how many people ask if they can touch my head.
It’s honestly surprising how often it happens.
This is followed up with, “How do you get such a close shave.”
Well, you are in luck. I have tried just about everyone on the market and have found the one product I’m so happy to share with you.
What Product Is Best?
Being something that I think I’ve tried everything on the market. I will say it really depends on you and your skin.
For me, I really wanted to try everything I could get my hands on.
To include the cheap foam stuff your grandfather used, all the way to expensive creams, foams, gels, the old-school thick cream or bar (that you lather up with a badger brush and is best used with a straight razor), and everything in between.
I found that my skin would react to some of these products. That is never a good thing. So it’s best to give it a try and see what works for you.
One time, I was able to get a sample of costly shaving cream. It’s from a company I really like and use many of their products, but this shaving cream did not like me.
I ended up getting a rash on the back of my head. And I didn’t realize how bad it was until I felt it.
Yep, the razor cut through it like butter, and it was not pleasant. I was glad I didn’t purchase a whole bottle because that would have been a shame.
What To Look For
I have found there are a few things that I look for when choosing a shaving product.
In no particular order:
- Easy to use
- It doesn’t irritate my skin
- Does not burn
- Being able to use a little bit of the product
With all that said, I started to really like the creams over other products. They seemed easier to use, and I really don’t think you need to use them as much.
Even better, you don’t have to have other tools to use them.
I mention that because I really like the old-school soap-looking bars. That you use a brush and make a rich, thick lather, that might be the best I’ve ever used, but being someone that likes to travel, not something I want to carry around with me.
So what is it that I have been using lately and think you should try?
Cremo Is Your Solution
My recommendation and what I have used for years is Cremo. It is a cream that is “activated” by water.
The cool part is that you don’t have to use a lot, and if you need to go over a section again, just used a little bit of water, and it will be “re-activated.”
I’ve been very pleased with this product, and it’s all I’ve been using for around 5 years now. I’ve even had fewer nicks and cuts with it as it becomes very slick and smooth when applying.
What is Cremo?
I suggest clicking on the photo above to learn more. You can also see the ingredients that are contained in it.
It’s straightforward to use. And remember, a little goes a long way. In fact, the bottle says it’s good for 90 days. You can take that with a grain of salt. I use Cremo shaving cream 4-5 times a week to shave my head and face. One bottle can last about five months!
- Put a little bit in your palm
- Mix it with water
- Lather it in your hands
- Place on your face, or what you intend to shave
- And go at it
What is really cool is that if you noticed you missed a spot, simply lather with more water.
There is no need to get more of the cream for the bottle!
Clicking the links or photo above, you will see it directs you to an Amazon page that sells two bottles. That is how I generally order them.
Each bottle really does last a long time. My last order was from a year ago!
You Should Try Cremo!
Since switching to Cremo, I have found it interesting that I don’t cut myself nearly as much.
You might think that is a combination of the razors I use, but I think it’s a combination between the razors and Cremo!
If I left anything out, or you have further questions, let me know in the comments below. Otherwise, order yourself some of it and let me know what you think!
