5 Best Shaving Creams For Women (And Bearded Men)

Hello, ladies! Raise your hands if you shave.

Seriously, shaving one’s legs (and whatever girly parts) is such a pain. And since we can’t magically wake up with satin smooth legs in the morning, the next best thing is to stock up on the best shaving tools like shavers for sensitive skin and shaving creams.

When I was younger, I just shaved with soap. What a disaster. I got razor burns and ingrown hairs. Ugh! I know better now though and have tried different products to find my favorites.

I’m sharing with you my top 5 products with my pick for the best shaving cream for women. Incidentally, I had to update the title to my post because apparently, a lot of the products below are used by men who regularly shave their beards. And boy do they know a lot about shaving!

Best Shaving Cream for Women

#5: Avalon Organics Cream Shave

I first tried this out because of the lovely packaging and the ingredients. I love organic anything and the fact that it had lavender was a big pull for me to try it. Overall, it was a good buy and I’d be happy to use this again.

Amazon’s Choice for Oganic Shave Cream.

Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Moisturizing Cream Shave, 8 oz.

Pros

  • Good for those looking for organic products; it has no parabens, pthalates, harmful sulfates, artificial colors or fragrances, and toxic preservatives
  • Has good stuff like lavender, chamomile, and green tea; also has beta glucan so that nicks heal faster
  • Great for sensitive skin; if you suffer from psoriasis, you can give this a try
  • Washes off easily
  • Very emollient

Cons

  • You need a lot of product for one shave

#3: EOS Tropical Fruit Shave Cream

I love EOS! I can’t say it’s for everybody but it suits my body chemistry. Before I tried their product, I was using a foam-type shaving cream so it was a bit of a change to use a lotion-type, as this one is.

All four variants are the bomb and I had a hard time picking just the one. They leave my bathroom smelling amazing!

Amazon’s Choice for EOS Shaving Cream.

#2 : Coochy Rash Free FROSTED CAKE Shave Creme

Some women are absolute nuts for vanilla and while I personally cringe from using anything that smells like vanilla, I admit I’m something of a hypocrite because I love smelling it on other people. If you love sweet scents and need a good shaving cream for your girl parts, this is the product for you!

Coochy Rash Free FROSTED CAKE Shave Creme Water Based Shave Cream and Moisturizer - Size 8 Oz

Pros

  • Recommended for a close shave in your bikini area and other sensitive girl parts
  • Gives a smooth and close shave; very emollient
  • Leaves your skin soft, moisturized and smelling like a delicious cupcake baking (FYI, the smell is actually light.)
  • Recommended for women who get bumps after shaving (especially if you try the unscented one)
  • A small amount goes a long way

Cons

  • You can’t lock it back on again once you’ve opened it so if you’re traveling, you can’t bring this bottle along

#1: Cremo Coconut Mango Moisturizing Shave Cream

This is my current pick for the best shaving cream for women. Again, I can’t say this would be everybody’s pick but right now, I love using this product.

Amazon’s Choice For Bikini Shave Gel.

Cremo Coconut Mango Moisturizing Shave Cream, Astonishingly Superior Shaving Cream For Women, Fights...

Pros

  • Effective and does it’s job; gives a very close shave and saves you from the usual shaving woes like bumps, ingrown hair, and razor burn
  • Recommended for women who usually get allergies from personal care products; great for women with sensitive skin
  • The mango coconut scent is divine; smells great when shaving in the bathroom and can’t get enough of it (men, in particular, who shave their beards with this product prefer the lavender variant)
  • Good for shaving legs, face, and other girly parts
  • Goes a long way as you only need an almond sized dollop of product; for your underarm, use a pea-sized dot only
  • No residue and washes off easily

Cons

  • Needs to be used exactly as directed or it won’t activate and you won’t get the full benefits
  • Not organic

PRO-TIP:

I’m seeing some users who use Cremo without reading the instructions properly and then don’t get a close shave. Follow the directions!

Rub your skin with hot water for 30 seconds or use a hot towel at the sink. Squeeze out an almond-sized dollop and add a few drops of water. Don’t expect a foaming lather. It’s more of a thin film of product. Work it onto your skin and shave.
