Spotlight On: Acure Foaming Shaving Gel

Acure foaming shave gel

Well OK, shaving gel isn’t the most exciting topic in the world….but when there’s something new that’s safer than conventional but works as well as conventional, I need to tell you about it!

New Product Spotlight via mindfulmomma.comNew Acure Foaming Shaving Gel* is the first shave gel made with natural ingredients that foams up just like dad’s traditional shave gel. But this stuff is powered by AIR instead of a nasty propellants.

  • Soothes and conditions skin with aloe, calendula and blue chamomile
  • Fresh cucumber scent appealing to both men and women
  • Free from parabens, sulfates, silicone, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances
  • 100% recyclable PET packaging
  • Vegan, gluten-free and cruelty-free

Note: The product dispenses as a gel. What I found works best is to rub my hands together to create the foam and then apply to my skin.
