Ever Felt Like Shaving Was a Necessary Evil?
I don't think you'd be alone in feeling that way- after all, this is something that bugs me from time-time as well! Why? You are constantly spending money- especially during the summer months when you often have to complete the task more frequently :/ In fact, statisticbrain.com 's Shaving Stats ,show that women spend a whopping $10 grand in their lifetimes for shaving-related products! In the past few years, disposable razors have made quite a come-back; I think this is due in part, to the fact they've gotten better at making them/better quality and they're more affordable than the replaceable cartridge versions.
Disposables are also a main choice for about 65% of women users, although women's electric razor sales have increased by over 20% in recent years. You find see more about these statistics > here < - the list is quite extensive and I found a few to be a bit surprising. It gets worse though...women are generally expected to pay more for shaving products, versus men. Particular brands for example, can "up-sell" a woman's shaving cream for 10+ cents per ounce- than that of the equivalent product in the opposite gender :( My way around this? I purchase products that are designed or geared towards men and I spend significantly less doing it ;)
There's also the downside that many of these products out currently on the market are chalked full of unhealthy ingredients that aren't good for your skin in the first place! You can avoid this by going to a product that doesn't cost an arm-and-a-leg AND it isn't full of yucky chemicals either! It turns out, there IS such a product in existence and it's become one of my go-to shaving products for the summer. Get the lowdown on this awesome item from Surya Brasil, below!

What stood out for me from the start with this product, was it's attention to providing a product that was void of harsh irritants and other unwanted chemicals that you usually see in most shaving products. With no GMO's, BHT, EDTA, Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, & synthetic fragrances, this product really does stand apart from its rivals! :) Powered with Aloe Leaf Juice, Macadamia oil, Cupaucu butter, & Pracaxi oil, you can see and feel the difference with just the first usage of this product during your shave!
It has a nice and light coconut and mango scent that's pleasant and smells great. I will say that if you are use to the traditional foamy-type of shaving products, this is something that you might have to get used to. However, I've used similar products in the past and I had an idea of what to expect and it didn't bother me at all that I didn't get foamy results.
What you do get, is a smooth and close shave- without any nicks or razor burn in sight. This is a feat for me, as I often come across products that are half as good as they claim to be and I don't always end up with great results. I had no issues with shaving while using this stuff and I decided to go ahead and make the easy decision of ditching my current brand for this one! I love how much of a cinch it's become to shave and my legs and underarms look & feel fab- their soft, smooth, and razor-burn free :)
