I have never been one for the clean shaving look, mostly because if I do shave i look like a pre-pubescent boy and that’s not good for my ego. I also hate doing it as my skin is so sensitive and it leaves my skin very sore.
So, I mostly only ever shave under my neck to keep a neat beard as I like to have some but I have to lather myself in moisturiser afterwards to prevent my skin breaking out. Maybe this is due to the shaving foam I use or the type of razor, who knows, but I have tried all kinds and some are better than others but I have never felt like I have found the ONE. So when Milkman Co got in touch to ask if I would like to test out the new clear shaving gel I was happy to participate.
My skin felt re energised
Milkman Co claim to not only give you a great shaving experience but to also moisturise the skin during the shave. Razor Rail clear shave gel is packed with Aloe Vera and menthol as well Rosemary oil for its anti-oxidants. I can confirm that it does exactly what it sets out to do leaving my skin feeling soft and re energised and I didn’t break out as much either.
As it is a gel and not a foam I found it gave me a cleaner shave as it is more lubricant for the blade to run across and less messy with the excess foam. The biggest plus for me was the fact it being a clear gel you can actual see what you are shaving. If like me, you only trim or even if you pop some crazy pattern into your beard then the clear gel gives you much better visibility.
I really love the bottle itself too, its understated and cool looking. The 500ml bottle will certainly last you a long time, and it comes in a hand pump action bottle.
Is it the one?
So yeah, I really liked the Milkman Co product, but is it the ONE? I’m not ready to commit to that just yet. Maybe there’s no product created out there that’s the ONE – but I would certainly say that Milkman Co have come very close!
Lucky for my readers, Milkman Co have gave me an extra 5 bottles to offer as a giveaway; so, if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of five bottles then enter below. Good Luck!
