Naturally minimize the appearance of unwanted hair with continued use.

This creamy shaving gel is uniquely formulated with natural soy and rich emollients to help immediately soften and condition hair, making it easier for you to get a closer shave and to shave less often with continued use. The clean-rinsing formula helps prevent nicks, cuts and even razor burn by helping to hydrate and moisturize skin. It's even gentle enough to use on sensitive skin.



Evens skin tone and texture
for radiant-looking skin.

Traditional Chinese medicine has used soy for thousands of years to reduce the appearance of blotchiness and discoloration. AVEENO®scientists devised a way to process soybeans that retains the integrity of the proteins to provide immediate and long-term skin benefits. Products with our ACTIVE NATURALS® Total Soy Complex visibly transform dull, uneven skin into brighter, more radiant skin.

This product works wonder! So it’s the second shaving gel/cream I’ve ever used. Usually when I shave, my skin would feel hella irritated even after I put on moisturizer! But with this gel, my skin feels NORMAL but cleanly shaven. I didn’t feel itchy or pain! I did moisturize afterwards though because it’s good practice and routine, but this gel is amazing. It doesn’t smell bad, a little does a long way, it’s a lot of product in a can, and it provides such a nice layer around the skin so that the razor can get the hairs off but not cut skin!!! I was soooo impressed especially since I was really skeptical at first. It is pricey-ish compared to other brands, but the skin on my leg is so bumpy and broken and ruined from shaving in the shower and with soap and no cream for years, so I just got the more expensive side to just be safe!!

Edit: the only thing I don’t like about the product is that it says it has ingredients to slow down hair growth because my hair def grew back the same speed within five days, so it’s somewhat false advertising. But I’m still going to use it for the smooth shave!

My dad loves this shaving foam. Especially for his everyday shaving. The only problem is that it doesn’t last that long. And it’s a hit on the pricey side but I always bargain shop. And I do recommend because it does leave skin feeling smoother and hydrated.

I just started using this shave gel the other day and I love it. My skin is sensitive and it reacted well with the gel. My legs are smooth and look great. There is a light fragrance that is soy. It is so affordable and it works great for that price. So if you want a shaving cream that does the job and stops cuts and nicks, this is the one you should try.

This is hands down the best shave gel I’ve ever tried. When I have to shave with anything else, it makes shaving such a chore. I’ve noticed other shave gels have such a chemical-y, artificial scent. This one does without all the cloying fragrances, and applies buttery smooth, making shaving easy and actually kind of enjoyable. It advertises that you can go longer between shaving, and I’d say I’ve noticed I can go maybe a day or two longer, as the hairs seem to grow back a bit slower or softer. I seriously can’t go without this shave gel-and it’s left me without bumps, which used to be a serious problem for me!

This stuff is amazing! I hate shaving but this makes it a lot better! It smells really good. It also lathers well and moisturizes your skin. I don’t think I’ll ever use a different shave cream after trying this one. I definitely recommend!

This is probably the best product that is most easily found for those of us with sensitive skin. I actually use a different and even more specific sensitive skin shave cream now, but this Aveeno shave cream made such a difference for me a few years back! It lathers well, feels soft, and has some oatmeal in it that adds moisture to your legs or other shaving areas.

Ps Their oatmeal bath soaks are amazing too! Highly recommend in the winter or for kiddos that have poison ivy or chicken poxs.

I have SUPER sensitive skin and get razor burn extremely easily. This is the only shave gel that I’ll use. It covers a lot of surface area and keeps your legs moisturized during and after shaving.

Every time I go to buy shaving cream, this Aveeno Shave Gel always catches my attention and makes me want to buy it. I wondering is it really worth the extra money or does it do exactly what all the others do?
