Gillette Satin Care Works, but not at Moisturizing
Shaving gels are my preferred means for shaving preparation and I have an assortment of brands and varieties that I have tried and liked. Some are better than others and one that is okay but not among the best is Gillette Satin Dry Skin Care Shaving Gel. Shaving Cream Facts and Commentary: Gillette Satin Dry Skin Care Shaving Gel is a gel- style shaving aid and, like the others, it is dispensed as gel and then gradually foams up as you spread it around your skin. It takes very little to create a good coating on the face and it seems to last longer than shaving creams. The scent is mild and gender- neutral so anyone can use it. As I said, I prefer shaving gels to shaving creams and I tend to stick with gels exclusively whenever I shave. However, Gillette Satin Dry Skin Care Shaving Gel doesn't rate among my favorite gels and part of the reason is that it doesn't necessary do what it claims. I don't have dry skin issues, but I like some of the moisturizing/dry skin shaving products because, if properly prepared, they are a treat to the skin, making it feel like you have applied lotion. With this product, I can't see much different and frankly I find the regular Gillette Series shaving gel better at making the skin feel moisturized even though it doesn't promote itself that way. Aside from the dry skin claims, this product is good for shaving. It does a good job lubricating and softening the facial stubble so that it can be easily swept away by a nice, sharp blade. The price isn't too bad either, so it makes a good choice for those who are cost conscious and want a product that will get the shaving routine finished without giving up much cash. My Bottom Line: My bottom line with Gillette Satin Dry Skin Care Shaving Gel is that it works but don't get your hopes up too high about it helping you with dry skin. I don't notice much difference when I use this, but as long as you keep that in mind and use it for its shaving capabilities, you will find it to be a good product. Effectiveness The shaving abilities of this product are good, but it isn't that great at moisturizing the skin. Scent The scent is good- not too strong and it is gender neutral.
