I usually use a wet electric razor, shaving during my shower. Occasionally I still use a blade. About two years ago I found a "no-name blue shave gel in a squeeze tube. It had an icy feel and fragrace to it. But it let me shave better than any gel Ihad ever used. But then it disappeared. I couldn't find it.

But not too long ago, while at the flea market I noticed there was an Avon booth there. And, in the booth were tubes of a clear bluish shaving gel. There was a huge sale going on so I picked up 3 tubes for about half price. The Avon Skin So Soft Stay Smooth Shave Gel was very similar to the gel I had used earlier. It's thick and has body to stand up to the humid heat of the shower allowing me to shave either with my Norelco or my Bic Advantage Hybrid in about as smooth an experience as I can recall. No drags, nicks or burns. And isn't that what we guys are looking for? This gel is serious shave gear.

Effectiveness
There aren't many shave gels and creams that I haven't at least tried, but of name brands I find Avon Skin So Soft Stay Smooth Shave Gel to be most to my liking. They really should start marketing this to guys.

Scent
Avon Skin So Soft Stay Smooth Shave Gel has an icy, kind of menthol scent, much different from the usual Skin So Soft Fragrance. I like it. It seems appropriate for both men and women.

I usually love avon skin so soft products but this shave gel was just horrible. It didn't cover like I would have liked and it did nothing for my skin. I very rarely have issues when shaving and after using this shave gel I had razor bumps and my legs were itchy. This is not the product for me.

Love this product, what a difference it makes when I use this gel. Great for the hair on my legs, and arms. I've used this gel so many times, and it is excellent. I've been using this gel for over a year, and I love it.

I put a generous amount on my legs, and it feels great. I always keep an extra one on hand.

Nice fragrance. What a great bargain. I will continue to use this product.

Ideal Shave Gel for men and women

By 

from Amelia, OH

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

This is a reasonably priced - especially when on sale product. It stays on your face or legs until you shave it off. You don't have to worry about the water rinsing it off. It comes out as a gel and then you lather it up into a foam. It offers smooth skin and moistured skin as well as a clean nicfree shave.

Next in line please.....

By

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

This smells like plastic to me. Didn't make my legs any softer than good old soap either. It also came with a flimsy razor that they shouldn't have wasted the time making. That was probably my biggest problem. Could have been a bad 'batch' too.

Better then the name brands

By 

from Westminster, CO

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

I love this product. I only get it when it's on sale. I have used other shaving gels (name brands) and it worked ok. The Avon Skin so soft shave gel has made my legs soft and smooth, which other shave gels don't. I've bought more to keep in stock. This is a favorite of mine to use.

I really love this product

By 

from Hawthorne, NJ

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

I am a huge skin so soft fan and this product is no exception.  I love the scent of this shave gel.  Its so light and clean smelling.  Its easy to apply to your legs and goes on evenly.  It makes it easier for me to shave because my razor glides so smoothly over the shave gel.   It is available in a couple of different scents.  I always keep it on the shelf in my shower.  I love how easy the top opens and the product comes out of the tube very easily as well.  No struggling to squeeze it out.  It fits nicely into the palm of your hand to make it easy to hold and use.  After shaving your legs this Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel  leaves your legs or wherever you use it, feeling so soft and smooth like a baby bottom.  It also leaves a nice pleasant scent as well.  This product goes on sale often and is available only through your Avon representative or Avon.com.  I always keep this on hand for shaving.

superior quality

By 

from Daytona Beach, FL

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

I like this shave gel, it works great. The scent is ok. Not my favorite, but it's not bad. I'd prefer a lighter scent, or unscented. But I can handle this scent just fine.It doesn't take much at all to do the job, so it seems to last well.It is a little thinner than my old shaving gel, and does not have a pump, obviously. The nice thing about it being in a tube is you know when you are getting low so you can order more before you run out. Despite being thinner than what I was used to, it is still thick enough that it doesn't drip off. I just have to be more careful that I don't squeeze too much out at a time, because it comes out so easily.When it's on sale it is the same price as the shave gels I used to buy, and has more product in it, so it's a better value for the money.The only downside to this shave gel is the same for all shave gels I've ever used-the fragrance and shaving combination make my legs dry and itchy. But that is because I have fragrance-senstive skin. So it happens to my legs no matter what I use to shave with. Thankfully Avon also has the Moisture Therapy Oatmeal body lotion, that I use after shaving to calm and sooth my skin

Skintimate Skin So Soft Shaving Gel is like other shaving gels.

By 

from Fresno, CA

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

**Skintimate**

**Skin So Soft Shaving Gel**

*Skintimate Skin So Soft Shaving Gel* is so so average to me. As not being a frequent user of shaving

gels, it didn't help with the shaving at all in fact it felt the same, as if I used a regular bar of soap. I do

have to say it was easy to apply and perfect for people who are on the go. People like me who have to

get there shower and beauty time when there children are asleep.The *Skin So Soft *part of the title is so

true because after I washed it all off it left my skin so soft and smooth. Another catch about this

product is that it didn't leave me with those uncomfortable razer bumps that a usual soap bar would

do. *Skintimate* is good for shaving on any part of the body in which a soap bar an do too, **but who has  **

**the time**. I would probly recomend it for men, but they have ther own products for a reason. So over all

it is just a time saver I'll give it a** C**

Definitely better than any in the stores.

By 

from Middletown, CT

Comments about Avon Skin So Soft Shave Gel:

I think the Skin So Soft shave cream leaves your legs much softer and smoother than any shave cream you can buy in the stores. I was a little dissapointed that it didn't smell like the original Skin So Soft, but the fragrance was faint and wasn't over powering like some of the shave creams on the market. It was a dark blue when it first came out of the tube, but when I put it on the color pretty much dissapeared and wasn't as easy to see as they claim, but I still like it better than any of the other brands I have used.
