I hate when I nick myself, and artificial fragrance seeps into the cut, adding a little extra burn – kind of like insult to injury. And then it smells like candy, which can be weird when shaving your armpits, because deodorant is about to go on, right? Won’t they create a weird combo, one in which candy battles it out with florals?

Maybe these are random thoughts. (Definitely.) But I know I’m not alone in thinking this! If you’re not interested in smelling strongly post-shave, I have 12 unscented shaving creams to keep you smooth, hydrated, and not smelling like a perfume shop.

Shave Soap Bar

Leaf continues to say no to plastic, creating a shave soap bar to accompany their razor. The soap bar lathers up nicely, but skin stays hydrated rather than stripped without sodium lauryl phthalate. Ingredients you will find? Nourishing coconut oil and cocoa butter, as well as detoxifying and moisturizing kaolin clay. Oh, and love. Lots of love.

Goat Milk Shaving Soap Bar

Ya gotta love a company that makes sure to state their shaving cream is for women. (I mean, duh, it always is, but they make sure to be inclusive!) Goat milk is the focus ingredient, and for good reason: it’s filled with fatty acids to repair, vitamin A for gentle exfoliation, and plenty of probiotics to keep the good bacteria and fight the bad.

We love (MALIN+GOETZ) for how gender-neutral they are, from scents to packaging (no pink or blue binary stuff). Their shaving cream is lightweight and won’t leave residue or clog your razor. Squalane and shea butter moisturize; glycerin and sodium PCA hydrate; chamomile extract and allantoin calm; menthol cools and protects; and the magic ingredient – vitamin E – is bursting with antioxidants, helping to protect.

Oils! Oils! And… even more oils! However, don’t assume I mean essential oils, because they aren’t included. Oils that ARE? Apricot oil, which gives you glow; palm kernel oil, which fights aging and hydrates minus grease; and coconut, olive, and castor oils to give you a soft and smooth foundation. The result: a simple shave that won’t irritate.
