Hello! It’s been a while since my latest post about shaving and I was really looking forward to giving you my opinion of this shaving gel from Bulldog. Same as with the rest of products by the brand, I am delighted with this shaving gel, it is comfortable, effective and has that aroma that characterizes Bulldog and makes its products so incredibly addictive. Want to know more? Let’s go!
PRODUCT: ORIGINAL SHAVING GEL
SKIN TYPE: ALL
RECOMMENDED FOR: UNISEX
In this post I told you about this range of Bulldog products. Some time ago I received as a gift their male skincare pack it got me hooked. This shaving gel, which maintains the same level of quality of the moisturizer I already wrote about and that has become one of my basics.
Bulldog was born in 2005 in the United Kingdom as a response from its founder (Simon Duffy) for the men who were looking for a line of simple products based on natural ingredients for skincare. Ever since, it has become a reference for many and today its products have received many awards and are sold all over the world.
So far I have only been able to try the products of the Original range, which are the only ones available for sale in Spain, although I do not rule out trying some products from the Oil Control line (focused on skins with a oily tendency, such as mine). They also have a line focused on reducing the signs of aging (Age Defense) and another with products for sensitive skin (Sensitive). In any case, everything I’ve been able to prove so far of the brand has been quite great.
I think this was the first shave gel I tried, and the experience is different from using shaving foam. Generally speaking, foams leave a very light sensation on the skin and, due to their texture, give the sensation of having protected us well. However, it often happened to me when I used them that my skin got all irritated me and the blade hurt me. What makes shaving gels special is that their texture is usually thicker and denser, so it leaves a film that covers the skin much better and allows a cleaner and less traumatic shaving.
When opening the package we find a dense, very concentrated gel, with a yellowish colour and that addictive citric smell that this brand has us used to. It leaves a thick feeling on the skin, but it spreads very easily. You will see that it hardly makes any foam, but that is irrelevant: what matters is having the skin well protected with the gel to avoid damaging it with the blade. The razor slides very well with this gel, you quickly realize about the high quality of the product. When finished, the sensation is smooth, without any irritations or redness. It does not dry the skin, it protects it and helps to keep it hydrated, so the result is unbeatable.
This shaving gel contains, among other ingredients, glycerin, with cleansing properties, aloe vera, soothing and moisturizing and green tea, with great antioxidant power. This shaving gel contains fragrances.
The aesthetics of the packaging is identical to the rest of the brand’s products: white packaging with dark letters, simple and practical. The diffuser of the container is of medium size, which sometimes makes it a little uncomfortable, since it can leave too much product and you end up wasting it. In any case, I recommend you take a small amount of product and extend it well, in case you need more it is better to reapply than having taken in excess and having to throw away a product of so much quality.
As I told you at the time, I am delighted with all the products in the Bulldog Original range. They are comfortable, give great importance to the components of natural origin, leave a great feeling on the skin and have an addictive smell. They have me hooked, and you?
HOW TO USE:
Ideally, to get an effective shave you should to wash the face well with soap and hot water before, so the pores are prepared for the blade (which is not exactly the gentlest thing you can put to the skin). Afterwards, with the face clean and moist, you must spread the shaving gel well and then rinse it when finished. Then, conclude with a good serum like this one and a good moisturizer like this Bulldog one, to leave your skin cared for and protected for the entire day.
