Somersets Extra Sensitive Shaving Oil for Women ($6.99 USD) — Packaged in a tiny bullet-shaped container, one 15ml bottle yields up to a month of shaves! Just four to five drops per leg enables women to get a close, smooth shave without nicks, cuts or razor burn. Somersets Extra Sensitive Shaving Oil for Women is formulated with a proprietary blend of organic essential oils such as Lavender, Tea Tree and Rosemary, which help to create a lubricating barrier between the skin and the razor, providing more glide for a truly comfortable shave.
What I think: I think this is such a unique idea, a shaving oil. It works well, after you get use to not having foam or a cream. Make sure that you use enough, because it is a thin oil.
Enjoy the new season!
