Best Shaving Cream for Women – Top 6

Best Shaving Cream and Soap for Women

This is the list of best shaving cream for women.I am going to mention top 6 here. Actually, all top shaving creams also work for women. Yes. You read that right. As long as it is working for men, it will work for women, too. That also works with safety razors. Best safety razors are not exclusive to certain gender but for all.

But of course, you will not want to smell like your man while shaving or after shaving. Thus, the look for best shaving cream for women began. The main factor is the scent. Find the right one that you and your significant other love. You do not want to be repulsed by it.

I love a sweet fruity scent. The floral scent is not what I get for my wife to use. But that is me.

I will recommend these best shaving creams for women based on its performance, not on the scents. It is better to have a smooth shaven skin rather have razor-burned skin but smell nice. I will include soaps in here as well.

Best Shaving Cream for Women

  1. Kiss My Face Moisture Shave Cream Fragrance-Free

As you noticed, this is a fragrance-free product. It is actually a hand lather cream but works well with a brush.

The slickness it gives will provide protection while shaving. As it stated on the bottle, this shaving cream also moisturizes your skin. It will give you a smooth silky feeling afterward.

Some people reported clogging of the pump because the cream is a bit too thick and sticky. You will need to use a toothpick to get the dried cream out of the pump hole. Because of this thickness, people also add water to thin it out a bit.

This product was not tested on animals.

  1. Lady Cremo Cream

This product gives a rich cream. It also gives a good slick, slippery layer so that you can shave with ease. The skin conditioner will give plenty of moisturizer to the skin, leaving your skin with a magically soft and smooth feel.

Reports are saying that this shaving cream will work wonders on the sensitive area, such as underarm and bikini line. It gives you a closer shave than any other shaving foam.

This cream is a bit thick so use it as thin as you can.

  1. Van Der Hagen Deluxe Shave Soap

We are venturing into the man’s territory with this soap. But as I mentioned before, shaving is not a gender related issue, so are its products.

Van Der Hagen is known for producing good quality shaving products. This mug soap is one of them. Some people don’t know this. You should soak the soap with warm water while you are showering. It will soften the soap so you can easily load your brush to make a good lather.

Van Der Hagen soap will give you a good value for money. The lather is rich and slick. You will need to learn to whip a good lather, though.

  1. Cella – Classic Italian Shave Cream

Good protective Italian tallow based shave cream. It gives almond scent. It is slick and gives a good cushion. You should try this shave cream (but a bit too hard you can call it soap).

This is artisan shave soap. It is in the family since 1899. You will support the family to continue producing this good quality product.

  1. Taylor of Old Bond Street

This shave soap is always on top of mind of many shavers. It is one of the best selling items on the Amazon. With so many buyers, you just can go wrong with this soap. You may join the ride with this big wave of satisfied customers.

TOBS gives a good slick creamy lather. You will not feel exposed as it will give you the protection and the cushion that you need. But the Sandalwood scent might be too manly for women. You can choose other scents, but I will recommend the Sandalwood here.

  1. The Shave Den soap

The Shave Den store is a store that provides a good selection of shaving creams and soaps. You should get a pack of sampler for the scents that you like.

All the soaps give a good perfect lather. It will not only lather but moisturized and conditioned your skin. Your shaving experience will definitely be enhanced.

All the products are handmade by Queen of Blades herself, JoAnna. Who understand women better than a woman? You will appreciate her handiworks. Oh, tell her that you know this soap from my website.

Final Words

There you have it. The top 6 of the best shaving cream for women. I hope your shaving experience be more enjoyable as you have a top notch quality shaving cream accompanying you now. If you are also wondering which safety razor to use, you can look at my review about the best safety razors for beginners.

I have included manly scent there but like I said, I choose performance over scents. It is better to have a razor burn-free skin than a good smell. I bet you will choose your smooth legs rather than reddish but smell good legs, right? If you really after a scent, you better get a perfume.  😀

  1. Hi Arief, just book marked your site for future reference.
    I hate having razor burns after shaving and i some times wonder why this happens. (it appears the barber who does the shaving does not even know the right products to use)

    I am glad i found your site, lots of useful products and tips on shaving.

    • Thank you, Vallery.

      You should learn how to shave. It is way better than going to your barber (if what you suspect is true). Just ask me with anything shave related. I will try my best to help you.

  2. I just love Sandalwood so that one looks like it will be best suited for me. Yes I agree with you totally that the quality of the shaving cream is really important and the smoothness of the shave will be there long after a scent has disappeared…. BUT I still place a huge importance on the scent. I’m a woman and I just like to smell great.

    And you say this one is one of the top sellers? Oh yes please.

    • It is one of the best selling shaving soaps. You go, girl! Get yourself one.. heck.. a dozen for your supply. It will give you the smoothest shaving experience!

  3. My girlfriend has been looking for some better razor and shaving equipment. I’ll point her in the direction of some of these for future use.

  4. I never know there were so many shaving creams out there. I just use the dollar store ones because I hate to shave. Maybe if I used one of these products I would enjoy it more. Thanks for the information!

  5. This is so weird.. I never thought that women uses shaving cream too LOL I thought it was just us men. Do they all uses it? I dont think my girlfriend has one. Never saw one in our washroom.

    • They do use shaving creams. It helps a lot. It protects the skin from razor burn, but you know that.
      Maybe your girlfriend has not find the benefit of using one.
      You should make the lather and apply it onto her. Who knows where it leads after that. 😀

  6. My wife definitely prefers a shaving cream with no fragrance. She has some beautiful perfumes that she likes to wear, and obviously does not want to mix scents.
    However I like the sound of the Cella cream, a bit of Italian history and with an almond scent! I am going to get her to give a try.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

  7. I love it Arief! Nice detailed review. I needed this since I get bumps when I shave and your site helped me find some nice products that provide the best quality.

  8. Thanks for the information, I really think my wife will love to try one of these products. I myself love a more fruity type of smell more than a fragrance when it comes to my wife.
    When I shave I just use regular Gellete disposal razors and have been for a long time. Colonges always give me a headache.
    What would you recommend that I use as far as a shaving cream is concerned that have a long lasting and great smell to them but wont be to overwelming for me?

  9. Hi 🙂 I’ve been shaving with wax lately, which I’ll tell you the truth, hurts 🙁 but when I need a quick (and painless) shave, a cream is the best. I personally don’t like any scent on the shaving cream because I use my personal body cream afterwards, that’s why I liked your first recommendation 🙂 easy to use and Fragrance-Free. Thanks for that one

    • Of course, waxing is very hurtful. You should always stay with regular shaving. It will be better for your skin. All the ritual of wet shaving, even though it is a bit of hassle, will benefit your skin. Get the shaving cream and shave away.

  10. This is a helpful post…I hate shaving but shaving cream makes it much better and more enjoyable. I will have to check one of these out. I usually just use soap, more out of laziness than anything else. This gives me a starting point of what to try going forward.

    • Body soap is not slick enough. I think that’s why you hate shaving. Ordinary body soap will not give you cushion and protection against any blade.

      I think you have the right start with checking one of these shaving creams. You should also have the right gear. Get one of the best safety razors for beginners.

  11. Thank you Arief for this article on the top six different shave creams for women. I notice when I clicked on #6 the Shave Den it took me to the Shave Den Shop website but then I needed to choose the product, menthol level and packaging options and I did not know what to do that point. Many thanks for the article.

    • Hi Stephanie,

      After you choose the product, menthol level and packaging options, you need to click Add to Cart.
      Then you click your basket on the top right. It will direct you to shipping methods. Pick one.
      Enter gift coupon if you have any, then check out.

      I hope that will help you. TSD shave soaps and creams got a lot of outstanding reviews. You will love it.

  12. Hi Arief! I never heard of shave soap before, I didn’t know just until know, lol. Oh, if I were to choose, I like the lady cremo. You mentioned it has a moisturizer which I would love to have coz I don’t like my skin to be dried after applying a shaver. And knowing it can be applied to sensitive area can give a woman at ease. Will definitely check this. Thanks Arief 🙂

    • Great. You will benefit from it. Shaving can be so much fun if you apply the proper technique and tools. Hope you enjoy it.

  13. I introduced your range of recommendations to my girlfriend because she had been using my Gillette shaving foam. No kidding, she is.

    It has been 1 week since she started on using the Taylor of Old Bond Street shave soap and am I glad she simply love it. Thank you very much for your post.

    • I am so happy that you and your girlfriend love TOBS. It is one of the best shaving soaps. It performs really well.

  14. I normally shave using a foam product rather than a cream. However, I like the idea of using a cream shaving lotion that moisturizes your legs as you shave. That’s a great tip. Thanks for your insight, and for sharing your favorite products. I’ll be sure to try a few of them.

    • Shaving foam from a can? Then you should definitely try a proper shaving cream or soap.

      Somehow I suspect you also use a disposable cartridge razor. May I also suggest you to get a new safety razor? You can check them here.

  15. Hello, I’ve so enjoyed browsing your site. There are so many wonderful products I’d like to try. I’ve already bookmarked it as one of my “go-to” sites when I’m shopping!
    Thanks,
    Anita

  16. This is interesting. I’ve never tried any of these shaving creams before. I do like to smell nice so the scent of a product is very important for me. The Shave Den soap sounds great. I like that it provides samples so we’ll know exactly what we’re getting.

    • Hi Yvonne,

      You should try any of these shaving creams. Do not use those gel to foam empty shaving foams. They don’t provide any protection!

  17. Good Morning Arief,

    I must say a whole new world has opened for me as I had no idea there are so many products on the market. I find it great you have created a website on this topic as I say I am never too old to learn something new. Keep informing us Ladies, I say, Thank you.

    Regards, Taetske

    • Hi Taetske,

      It is a pleasure of mine to open possibilities for you and other ladies. There are ways to improve your shaving experience and one way is to find a suitable shaving cream for women. A proper lather will improve shaving experience greatly.
