As a busy, new mom it’s often I don’t have time to pamper myself, much less take long showers anymore. So taking my sweet time to shave in the shower is definitely out. When I don’t have time for a shave and literally have to jump in the shower quickly and jump out here’s my water-free, moisturizing way to shave using shea butter.
All you have to do is slather on the shea or body butter and shave like you normally would with shaving cream. It’s quick, easy, and moisturizing and best of all it keeps me from looking like a wooly beast. So the next time you’re in a hurry and only have a minute to shave, try shea butter.
*Note: The version I used is from Bath & Body Works and is scented, but by all means use unrefined or raw shea or body butter.
