Probably I should’ve included Vichy’s shaving foam in my last post about grooming products, but I didn’t it have it on hand at the time. So to rectify that, here’s a brief review of the product. I have been using it continuously for the past two years, as it’s simply brilliant.
The formula is rather simple, we have the soapy base which gives slippage and facilitates shaving. There’s also a mix of calcium, a vitamin C derivative, and salicylic acid to reduce ingrown hair – a common side effect of shaving. The product is suitable for all skin types.
This shaving foam is one of my favourites not only because it works well for my skin, but it is also most accessible and often on offer. L’Oréal have a large share of the personal care products market here. Another reason why I keep repurchasing this foam is because I can always rely on it even when my skin is irritated. I can use it while on tretinoin, which makes my skin prone to irritation, or after laser treatments. This shaving foam is gentle on the skin and helps to get a close shave.
The Vichy Homme Anti-Irritation Shaving Foam is available from Vichy’s stockists worldwide.
