This shaving cream has merit and it’s easy to rinse from the blade and skin, but it’s also overly fragrant, which isn’t the best for anyone’s skin (fragrance isn’t skin care). The formula contains some good soothing plant extracts, but they’re fighting against the fragrance and inclusion of potentially problematic lavender extract. Given that a product like this is on skin for a short time before rinsing, it’s an option (and the price is great), but not among the best for those dealing with sensitive skin or rosacea. The vitamin E this contains doesn’t nourish skin—not in the tiny amount included.
This unique blend of lubricating emollients maximizes absorption of water, lifting and softening unwanted hair for effortless razor glide and reducing the risk of nicks, cuts, and irritation. Enriched with pure aloe vera, nourishing vitamin E, and botanical skin conditioners that help deliver a smooth and soothing shave with lasting comfort.

California-based specialty grocer chain Trader Joe's isn't the first place you may think of when shopping for skin care, and rightly so: the bulk of this store's inventory is, not surprisingly, foods and beverages. However, they've recently ventured into sun care and offer a couple of worthwhile, inexpensive sunscreens. Neither formula is knock-your-socks-off spectacular, but both provide reliable UVA protection and are quite the beauty bargain to boot. If you have a Trader Joe's in your neighborhood, the sunscreens are definitely worth a look, especially if you have a family to cover from head to toe during summer months when more of us are outdoors for long periods of time.
