Whether you are just trying to save money or you are wanting a more natural product, this Shaving Cream is absolutely awesome.  I took a recipe I found and tweaked it.  My husband loves the man’s shaving cream version and I love the ladies shaving cream version. (Check out the YouTube Video Here)

Make it, try it and you’ll discover something that is NOT sold anywhere and your legs, underarms and anywhere else is soft and feels great.  NO Chemicals to worry with.


  • 1 Bar of Dove (men or women’s it already has the moisturizer in them)
  • 1 Cup of Distilled or Purified Water (don’t use tap, it might mold) the less water the more thick the cream will be
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Almond Oil
  • 2 TBsp of Glycerin
  • Optional: 8-10 drops of essential oils (your choice, something spa like) I use baby soft or a lavender
  • Need thicker Shaving Cream? Easy just add Palm Oil Flakes – you can purchase on 


Grate your soap as fine as possible. Slicing is not recommended.  Heat the water to about 150-160 degrees (not boiling) just enough to melt the soap flakes. Stir until dissolved.  Leave for at least 4-6 hours.  When you come back, take your immersion blender (if you don’t have one, easy and cheap to get) and mix well, add the rest of the ingredients until really smooth. Store in a plastic or glass container.  I scoop out with my fingers and its always cold and smooth.  Share and leave comments on how it works for you!
