Review: FAB Smooth Shave Cream

I bought this travel sized Smooth Shave Cream as a part of one of those Advantage Card points deals you get at Boots - you know, the ones that somehow manage to get you to spend more than you wanted to with the promise of a few bonus points.  It's from new brand on the block, First Aid Beauty (FAB), who offer mid-range priced products in chic, feminine yet modern packaging.  

Anyway - there's not a huge amount to say about the concept - it's a shave cream, it aims to reduce nicks and irritation whilst keeping the skin soft and smooth.  There is, however, a huge amount to rave about with the product itself - this is one of the best shaving creams I've ever tried.  Unlike it's foamy cousins, it's a thick cream not unlike a rich hair conditioner.  It spreads easily over the legs (or armpits), and a surprisingly little amount goes a long way - a 50p sized blob was enough to generously coat my lower legs.  Once applied, it sticks to the legs until you've shaved it off.  

The best thing about it, though, is the 153% extra glideyness* that it imparts.  The razor veritably floats across the skin, with absolutely no drag and no need to apply more pressure to stubbornly stubbly areas.  After rinsing, my legs were left feeling beautifully smooth and fuzz free, and completely soft and hydrated - no dryness, and no irritation to be found.  

I'll definitely be repurchasing this - in the small size for travel, and in the large size to leave on the side of my bath forevermore.  If you'd like to try it for yourself, you'll find the FAB range at Boots, both in store and online - the travel size 60ml Smooth Shave Cream will cost you £5.50, and the large 200ml size will cost £12.

* This statistic may quite possibly be scientifically inaccurate.
