How To Make Homemade Shaving Cream/Oil

Recently I have been loving making homemade beauty products from lip balms and lip scrub! I was thinking of what I could make next when shaving cream popped into my mind.

In the past whenever I used a store bought shaving cream I never had very good reactions to them. I started using hair conditioner instead which I found a lot more gentle on my skin. However I think homemade products are fun to make and you know more about what goes into them.

I would say this has more of an oil consistency but it made my skin so soft!

What you will need
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup shea butter
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sweet almond oil
5 drops vitamin e oil
5 drops essential oil (I used lavender)
2 tbsps baking soda

  • Melt the coconut oil and shea butter together on the lowest heat on the stove
  • Add the olive oil and sweet almond oil. Mix together
  • Add the drops of vitamin e and essential oil
  • Pour into a container, stir it and then put it in the fridge until it hardens
  • Remove from fridge, let soften and add the baking soda
  • Whisk until you have a creamy consistency
  • Store in a cool, dark place
This would also be perfect all of the bearded gents out there!

Let me know if you try this :)
