Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel Review

What is Showerless Shave Gel & Do I Really Need it in My Life?

I love being sent the latest products to test and review so I was interested to give Busy Beauty's Showerless Shave gel; a 3-in-1 pre-shave, shave and post-shave that requires no lathering, rinsing or washing a go. I’ve also been making a conscientious effort to be much more environmentally conscious with my products, which this one is; it’s paraben free, alcohol free, cruelty free and 100% vegan.

My first thought was, when would I actually need this? Being a girl who showers twice a day; post-gym and before bed, sometimes 3 times if I've laid out in the sun, I wasn't sure if I'd have a need for this product in my life. Until I had my eyelash extensions done! Boom! The perfect time to give it a go, since you have to avoid steam and water on your face for 24 hours, so out came their tube of showerless shave gel.

There are so many other times it comes handy; such as when your hair and/or makeups already done, post surgery when can't you can't get dressings wet, travel, small showers and when you've missed a patch which I invariably do, especially when I'm in a rush.  


It's super simple to use; you just apply the clear gel from the pump dispenser which makes it super easy to use, without creating a mess or having too much product. This creates a smooth surface that your razor easily glides over to shave as normal, minus the water. After you're done you just apply more and rub in as a post shave moisturizer. The product is pretty much scent-free so it won't interfere with your perfume.

The hair collects as it would normally in the back of the razor for disposal when ready. If you're at a sink you can simply tap and rinse the blades, if there's no water just carefully wipe clean until you can wash it properly. 

Post Shave:

I still prefer using cocoa butter but in a pinch and especially when minimizing products for when I travel this is ideal. The fact that at 3.4oz it's TSA approved means you can just throw it in your carry-on and go. The moisturizing, lubricants and lotion hydrate to keep your skin soft and looking refreshed. I love the slight sheen it leaves.


This product is a great one to keep on hand and to travel with, as it's normally when you've forgotten or in a rush that this will come in handy. The company describes it as perfect for sensitive skin as it contains natural essential oils. I experienced no razor burn, irritation or ingrown hairs which can sometimes happen when you try and dry-shave.
