Beauty Review: Dr. Bronner's Magic Lavender Shaving Gel

I recently was on the hunt to try a new shaving gel and decided to try Dr. Bronner's Magic Lavender Shaving Gel. Dr. Bronner's is a well-established brand known for their fair-trade, organic, all-natural and vegan products. I had never tried a Dr. Bronner's product before using their shave gel, though I've heard lots of praise for their castile soap (that's next to try on my list!).

From the label:
Enjoy a truly clean shave without any synthetic ingredients. This unique gel is made with organic shikakai, which comes from the seed pods of a South Asian tree. Dr. Bronner's extracts the shikakai in organic sugar and grape juice and combines it with their mild castile soap so the razor glides easily, leaving behind smooth, soft skin.
I've been using Dr. Bronner's Magic Lavender Shaving Gel for about a month now to shave my legs in the shower and I've got mixed feelings on it. The shave "gel" is actually fairly liquid and has a soapy consistency. It had a tendency to just wash off my legs in the shower, which obviously makes it difficult to use. However, despite this the gel still protected my legs against razor cuts/irritation and did a fantastic job at moisturizing. I also loved its strong lavender scent!

Despite its odd soap-like consistency, I felt it did a good job at moisturizing and protecting my legs, however its roughly $10 price tag is a bit pricey in my opinion. I would definitely use this product again, but I would definitely wait until it was on sale before buying again.

Buy it on Amazon!


  1. I have used their castile soap, and it is quite good. The peppermint might be overwhelming to some though. I use it as hand soap, but I know others use it as dish or laundry detergent.

  2. Yeah,their castile soap is pretty awesome.(Though I've always had a hard time processing the world salad on the label)

  3. Kiss My Face makes a nice lavender shave cream, but it makes me sneeze violently! I should give this one a try.

  4. HUGE fan of Dr. Bronner's Peppermint soap. It is the best! Make your naughty bits tingle. I mainly use the peppermint, but if I want to change it up I usually go with Lavender or Almond. Haven't tried the shaving gel yet, must pick some up.
