    I love Aveeno!

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel is amazing! I have been through countless numbers of different shaving creams and shaving gels with horrible luck. I was always left with razor burn, rashes, or very dry skin. It was always something! I swear by Aveeno's shampoo and conditioner so when I saw shaving gel it was like I was in heaven! I absolutely love it. I had great results even on my sensitive skin. The shaving gel left my skin super soft and smooth! I could not have asked for a more perfect product to shave with.

    Effectiveness
    The Aveeno shaving gel does exactly what it should do. It should leaves skin feeling better and after time I noticed my skin was a lot softer. I haven't had to worry about redness on my legs caused from other creams and gels.

    Scent
    I love the scent. It is very hard to describe though. It reminds me of something like oatmeal. It smells so good and isn't overbearing. A lot of products that have stout scents are harsh on my skin. Aveeno was not.

    Good product for the price.

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    For my money, this is a perfectly fine shave gel. I've definitely used others that are more effective at the "positively smooth" result, but this is great for the price. I appreciate the light scent as well, it doesn't overpower. My skin tends to be sensitive, and I experience almost no irritation with this.

    I love Aveeno!

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    The Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel is definitely perfect for people like me who have sensitive skin. All the other shave gel's or creams that I used always irritated my skin and made it red and itchy. This Aveeno product leaves my skin feeling so smooth, fresh, and completely soft! As a result, shaving my legs is so much easier and less hassle. After applying the shave gel and shaving my legs, I don't have tiny little hair stubbles still remaining there. The smell of the Aveeno gel is really nice. What I like about it is that it doesn't have a strong scent; it kind of smells like oatmeal, something subtle. I have the Aveeno lotion (which I love), so that's why I decided to try the Aveeno Gel. I was not disappointed and it's a great gel. For my shaving routine, I basically just apply the Aveeno Shave Gel, shave, rinse my legs, and then apply the Aveeno lotion last. I love all Aveeno products!! They are simply the best for my sensitive skin.

    Prevents ingrown hairs.Repairs skin.

    By 

    from Springdale, UT

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    This shave gel helps to lighten the body hair and makes it grow out finer later on down the road.I have noticed the hairs less noticeable when they grow back after using this shave gel.The hair takes a bit longer to grow back than before.I think it is because it allows a closer shave and better glide of the razor.Also because of the host of moisturizing ingredients it softens the hairs before shaving them.That also makes for a closer shave.This also prevents chafing of the skin and my skin feels healthier now.It allowed my skin to repair itself with the vitamins also this shave gel is enriched with.Because it is so thick and lathers so well,I don't get many cuts anymore.My amount of ingrown hairs has greatly reduced.It allows for a more accurate shave since it allows better glide.That's my theory on why I have less ingrown hairs.I love the fragrance of this product.Not too loud of a scent to be overbearing.

    the very best shaving cream!

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    If money is no object this is my absolute favorite shaving cream. However, it is also pricey so I can't afford to buy it very often. But this works better than any shaving cream I have ever used. It is perfect for my overly sensitive skin due to a terrible case of eczema.

    Effectiveness
    This is the most effective shaving cream I have ever used. It spreads evenly on your skin, softens hair perfectly, doesn't clog your razor, and gives you a perfectly smooth shave. At the same time it also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. It is even more effective if you follow it with Aveeno lotion afterward.

    Scent
    This actually doesn't have a scent but that is what makes it the very best shaving cream ever. And unlike some unscented products this one doesn't smell bad in the absence of fragrance. This is completely hypo allergenic which makes it perfect for people with sensitive skin or allergies. It is also perfect for people like me that have eczema or other sensitive skin issues.

    This is by far the best shaving cream I have ever used!

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    Are you a picky person when it comes to shaving cream? Do you have difficulty shaving closely and not cutting yourself when it comes to a lot of the mainstream and popular shaving creams? That's how I felt about a lot of the shaving creams I have tried in the past, too. But once you try Aveno Positively Smooth Shave Gel, you will never want to go back! I had my own shower routine before I found this magnificent shaving cream and it involved shaving, then immediately tending to cuts on my legs and reaching for the lotion before the bumps and rashes started forming. But not anymore! Now, no cuts, no bumps, no dry skin. It feels as though you put lotion on before you reach for it.

    Scent
    I LOVE the scent. It smells refreshing, and clean. It also seems as though there are no fake scents to it. It's like you're giving your body a treat, not like you're tricking your nose into liking something you shouldn't.

    Avveno Active Naturals Shaving Gel is an Excellent Product

    By 

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    Shaving gels are my preferred shaving aid. They offer better lubrication than shaving cream and I like that so many manufacturers have joined in and now market their own shaving gels. One of the better ones is Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel.

    Shaving Gel Facts and Commentary:

    Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel uses a special formula that contains soy- a product known for its ability to soften and smooth the skin. The product is lightly scented and is gender- neutral, making it a great choice for the man/woman duo who like to share.

    Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel is a great product for multiple reasons and the first is its ability to moisturize the skin and prepare it for a razor. It takes only a small amount to spread around the skin and the gel turns to foam quickly as you spread. It is very easy to squeeze out too much, so use it sparingly at first. After a short amount of experience, you will better know what amount is right for your face, legs, etc.

    Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel lubricates the skin as well or better than any other shaving gel for the most comfortable shave possible. About the only problem I have with this product is its high price. It is more than double the price of other gels and triple or quadruple the price of the less expensive shaving creams. The cost factor alone will likely discourage consumers from ever trying this shaving gel, no matter how good the results.

    Bottom Line Viewpoint:

    Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel is one of the best shaving gels around and it is almost certain to provide a more comfortable shave than other brands. Getting around the price takes determination, but the product is one of the very best I have ever used and some would argue that the high cost is worth it. Try it for yourself and see!

    Effectiveness
    This is a very good shaving gel that preps the skin very well for shaving purposes.

    Scent
    The scent is light, but fresh and gender- neutral so anyone can use it.

    Perfect shave every time!

    By 

    from Federal Way, WA

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    I didn't think the brand of shaving gel would make a difference. I thought they were all equal. And since I believe in giving everyone a chance, I thought I would try Aveeno since I had a coupon for an Aveeno product. To be honest, I haven't had a better shave ever! I love that the cream is very thick. A little really does go a long way when using this, so the can lasts me a long time - which then factors into the price of it, which many would say is absurd for a can of shaving cream! I also love the scent which isn't too fruity or overpowering like many of the other shaving gels that are out there on the market. It is a subtle scent that kind of just lingers a while - very nutty kind of scent which is pleasant to the nose without irritating it. I think that this gel is perfect for those with sensitive skin because it is so natural - and it will leave your legs feeling so soft and smooth after use!

    Aveeno active naturals positively smooth shave gel

    By 

    from Valdosta, GA

    Comments about Aveeno Positively Smooth Shave Gel:

    I love, love, love, this shaving cream!!! The reason I love it is because I can go longer between shaving. Normally I would have to shave every day but this shaving cream allows me to only have to shave two to three times per week. I love the smell. It has a sort of oatmeal type smell. I love the way it makes my legs feel too. When I use this shaving cream my legs feel well moisturized. I was disappointed when I found out that they discontinued this shaving cream for a while. I contacted them because I was so upset and they replied with a statement saying that they took it off the shelves in order to fix the "spout" or the bottle. I am not sure what exactly this means but basically sounded like they were making improvements on the bottle and how the product comes out. I didn't see anything wrong with the bottle. I still have some left so i haven't had to buy any lately so I am not sure if they have it back out on the shelves or not.
