I've always liked the looks of men's line from The Art of Shaving, so I'm really happy to explore its new women's shaving collection. The just-launched, seven-piece line ($18–$60) is specifically formulated for skin on the body, and it's infused with rose absolute. While I probably wouldn't go for all of the products because I don't have time for a four-step shaving process, I'm interested in trying the Ingrown Hair Night Cream ($30), a shea butter formula that soothes skin and prevents bumps and ingrowns. It sounds like someone's finally figured out how to tackle shaving problems without leaving skin oily or overly mentholated.
When it comes to shaving my legs, I tend to switch between high-end shaving potions and drugstore brands, since the latter are just easier to buy on short notice. But while Gillette Satin Care doesn't totally suck, the Walgreen's offering does, and in general, drugstore brands don't give me the silky-smooth shave I want.
The exception, I've just discovered, is Aveeno Positively Smooth Shaving Gel ($3.99). This product gave me one of the closest, most moisturizing shaves I've ever gotten from a drugstore gel, so read more
Last week I asked you all to come Beauty Marking with me to help find a new silky soft shaving cream or gel that I didn't have to share with my hubby. He really loves his Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream, $15.50, and I do too, however it's not very feminine smelling! Your mission was to help find me something that will make my legs and underarms feel silky without irritating my sensitive skin. Also, if it smelled great, that would be fab!

Beauty Mark #1 found my sigmaration, is called Nature's Gate Organics Lemongrass and Clary Sage Creamy Shave Gel, $6.99. This shaving cream is made with Vitamins A and E to nourish, calm and protect skin. It also has creamy shea butter in it so that your skin is left feeling moisturized and silky.

Hey everybody! With all this Dress you Up! talk, can you help me on my search for an awesome new shaving cream or gel for the shower? I am looking for something that's going to make my legs and underarms feel and look silky smooth. I love a close shave and it would be ideal to find something gentle that won't irritate my skin.
I've been using my hubby's Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream, $15.50, but it doesn't smell very womanly and I feel like he should have something in the shower that's his alone!
