Instead of shaving cream….

…I’ve been using my Third Day Naturals soap. It gets nice and lathery and works perfectly. I don’t know if it would work for a really thick beard, but seeing as I don’t have a really thick beard, I’m good. 😉

Since it comes in recyclable and compostable packaging instead of in an aerosol can, it’s a whole lot less trash-producing than shaving cream.

I’m using my sampler bars right now (evergreen is my fave thus far!) , and even this small size lasts for a long time. So, a full bar would be around for a good long while. I’m not entirely sure how one would calculate this, but I’m guessing it might work out to be cheaper than shaving cream.

Do you use an alternative to shaving cream?

disclosure: Third Day Naturals renewed their ad here on The Frugal Girl for the month of January, but this post is not sponsored by them, and they didn’t even suggest that I use their soap for shaving cream. I thought of that all by myself. 😉

I use natural, handmade soap for shaving as well! I love making my own soap and even turned it into a business. Shaving with soap is so great because of the significantly decreased amount of trash. I also make shampoo spheres. I have long hair so I tend to go through a lot of liquid soap. The shampoo soap is so satisfying because not only does it lather like crazy, but when I run out there isn't a plastic bottle that goes in the trash.

I'm with the conditioner bunch. You get a much closer shave and if you are pressed for time and don't moisturize when you are getting dressed, the conditioner helps to keep your legs from itching.

I'm chiming in as another person who uses conditioner. It seems to minimize cuts, and means one less product to buy and keep in the shower.

Yes, I've never actually used shaving cream to shave my legs. After lathering up my hair, I just use the suds from that to shave my legs. Works perfectly :)
