Not impressed...at first.
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2017
I waited to write a review on this, so I could write a helpful review. I'll admit, at first, I wasn't impressed. It seemed to take just as long as using regular shaving cream. But, as I used it more often, my thoughts changed.
First of all, a little about me. I'm a 50 year old female undergoing chemo treatment. My hair did not fall out completely. It came out in small clumps. What didn't fall out, broke down by the roots. It continues to grow in, but in spots, and it's very brittle. So I shave every 1-3 days. The first time I tried this, I had probably 5-7 days growth, so it didn't work all that great. After I started maintaining it, it worked great.
I have small bumps on the head...almost like big pimples. Everytime I shaved with shaving cream, I would ALWAYS catch one of these bumps and make them bleed. That does not happen with the Remay Gel. It seems to make my razor *glide* over my head and these bumps don't catch! Also, with proper maintence, it really does cut my shaving time.
Now...I've seen a lot of people complain that this doesn't last very long. Guess what, people? This is GEL. Gel dissolves in water. So if you leave this open in the shower, it WILL dissolve!! So, I get a little section gelled and I start shaving that, rinsing my razor often. Then I continue, a little section at a time until it's completed. I ALWAYS cap it between each little section. Once I'm done, I will take the little bit of water and gel that is at the bottom of the egg, and I pour it over my head, working it into the skin, so no other water is in the bottom of the egg. I don't rinse it as it makes a good after shave conditioner.
I alternate eggs with each shower. I have been using both eggs for well over 2 months, and each one still has about half left.
The only concern that I have is that I have found that it burns my eyes if any of the gel runs into my eyes, so I keep a wet wash cloth handy to wipe it away from my eyes. Now, I have bad eyes, with surgeries on both of them, so that may be why it burns my eyes -- it may not happen to you. For this reason alone, I am giving it four stars. I paid full price for this item and my review is based on my honest thoughts. I hope you find my review helpful and will give me credit if you do.
