I received The Real Shaving Co. Super Slide Shave Gel for review purposes a couple of months ago. I’m not going to lie, when I first received it, my first thought was that I don’t shave. My second thought was that my husband doesn’t wet shave either…however, it pretty quickly dawned on me that of course I shave… just not my face… yet!
I’ve not tried any products from The Real Shaving Company and I didn’t know much about them, but I’ve since found that they are a world renowned brand that have been offering barbershop shaves and skincare since 1953! All products are made here, in England, Somerset to be exact and created with years of expertise and high quality formulations.
The Super Slide Shave Gel (£3.99/125ml) is a clear gel, it doesn’t foam, and it creates an invisible lubricating layer. Aloe Vera and Willowbark keep skin moisturised as well as helping to prevent skin irriation and it is considerably cheaper than I thought it was going to be if I’m honest, and that can only be a good thing. I truly thought that this would be an expensive product because of it’s quality.
I’m not going to lie, a clear product that doesn’t foam isn’t the easiest thing to use on larger areas, such as legs, as you can’t easily see where you’ve been with your razor, but thats just a minor fault, I don’t think it’s designed for legs after all! It certainly suits my skin very well indeed though, my razor just glides along the areas I’m shaving, and although I can be prone to dry, itchy or irritated skin after shaving, I have had none of that with this stuff.
I initially thought it wasn’t going to last terribly long but it was surprising how long it has lasted, it’s not gone yet, you need much less than you’d think! I would absolutely recommend this, in particular if you tend to suffer with irritation on shaving… whether that be your legs, arms, face or otherwise!
Also available in the range are cleansers, shave creams, and moisturisers.
