I tend to be a frugal person, even if grad school didn’t require it, I would be all over it. And I prefer natural things. Which are usually super expensive. So I stick to the food and other things like that.
So for shaving cream, I use spouse’s. Men’s shaving cream is just like women’s no? I mean, I don’t need gel that turns to foam–my shaving time does not need to be a science experiment. I don’t need pink and purple bottles to affirm my femininity. Don’t need pink- or green-washing. So Barbasol on sale for 79cents?! Let’s stock up!!
For years, this has been my shaving cream. The other day, I decided to read the label. Big Mistake. Aside from all the usual crap, also, propane. I immediately resolved to shave with soap, hoping I wouldn’t re-live those early years when I was too embarrassed to ask my mom to buy shaving cream and razors.
Spouse noticed I stopped using it and then decided to read the label too. “I’m glad I bought the Sensitive Skin variety, so that I can slather my face with propane.”
I wonder what people used to use. Either something better, or something ten times worse. Ughhhh. Any alternative suggestions will be much appreciated.
