Pros: A shaving gel that turns into a thick, creamy, lather.
I just love Sundays, when I can look at the huge newspaper, and get free products, from either Walgreen's drug store, or C.V.S. This time it was Gillette Satin Care Alluring Avocado Shave Gel. I scan the coupon books, for free, or almost free products. I purchased this one for $2.99, and got my receipt, with the money back in a coupon form. How is that for a savvy shopper.
This was a perfect time for me, as my last can of shaving gel, was coming to an end. I chose the Alluring Avocado fragance because it sounded refreshing and sensual.
The first time I used it was after cleaning the entire house. I needed a shower, so I took the Satin Care Shave Gel, and my shaver into the shower with me. The can is modern looking and is mid green at the bottom, lighter green in the middle, and a lemon colored round top/lid. On the front of the can it says 'New! Gillette Satin Care alluring Avocado Shave Gel with silk". At the bottom it gives the weight of 7 ounces (198 g). In the middle it has an avocado sliced in two.
Upon taking the top off the can, there is a modern looking pump. It is low and built into the top of the can. It almost makes it look feminine instead of just a can. Upon pushing down on the button, out came a pale green gel, that turned into foam. The avocado smell is a fresh clean smell. I put a little onto my wet skin and gently rubbed it into my legs. It lathered up really well and stayed on thick. I then took my Gillette Venus razor and the blades went easily through the lather.
When I checked my legs they felt smooth, soft, and no stubble. I continued using the Satin Care Shave Gel under my arms and was very pleased with the outcome. Even the bikini line was a breeze, and I normally have problems, with the stubble there.
After I finished the shower my legs still had the fresh smell of all these wonderful fragrances, and were satiny smooth.
What Gillette have to say about their product from the back of the can:
"Treat your curves to Satin Care Alluring Avocado shave gel infused with the inviting aroma of aloe, jasmine, and orange blossom and get soft, satiny smooth legs! For great results use the new Gillette Venus Embrace razor designed to give you smooth skin.
Caution: Contents under pressure. Do not place in hot water or near radiators, stoves or other sources of heat. Temperatures above 120 degrees F/50 C.
Keep out of the reach of children."
I was going to list the ingredients but my eyesight isn't that good. I went to the website and couldn't find it listed.
I normally shave my legs two or three times a week, so this size can will last a long time. I am extremely happy with it, and wouldn't hesitate to purchase Satin Care Shave Gel, in the future. I have now used it several times, and still enjoy the rich, creamy lather, and beautifully soft skin.
