Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Shaveworks Luxurious Shave Cream

Splurge vs Steal Beauty

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products that are available online and in-store. Also make sure to check out my blog, for even more beauty product reviews, advice and tips.

Shaveworks Pearl Souffle Luxurious Shave Cream is, by definition, shaving cream luxury. For one, a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society but, aside from the charity component, this product is fabulous. It has ingredients that help minimize the appearance of hair growth, glycolic acid to exfoliate and reduce ingrown hairs (especially awesome for the bikini area) and, lastly, it moisturizes your skin for the perfect shave. The downside? It’s $22, and that is A LOT for shaving cream…even with the awesome benefits.

A nice, and affordable ($5.50!), alternative is the Alba Botanica Very Emollient Cream Shave in Mango Vanilla. Sure, it doesn’t have the hair-minimizing ingredients or glycolic acid for exfoliation but it DOES smell amazing. It’s also packed with aloe vera, lavender and vitamin E – all good-for-your-skin ingredients that result in an effortless shave.
