As warmer weather steadily approaches, those who prefer a hairless look might already be plotting the steps toward a smooth bikini line. Even TikTok has shaving on the brain: Users just discovered the perfect solution to razor bumps and ingrown hairs, but it's been hiding in plain sight all along-in Amazon's best-sellers section, no less.
The Eos Shea Better Shaving Cream is Amazon's top-selling women's shave cream, and a recent TikTok post featuring the $4 cream has earned over 3 million likes. In the video, user Carly Joy responds to a previous comment about her spotless bikini line, explaining that the Eos product is her secret to a bump-free finish. She goes as far as calling it an "absolute blessing" for her bikini area.
But what makes such an affordable shaving cream so effective? As its name suggests, it all starts with shea butter, which is naturally anti-inflammatory and moisturizing. The cream also contains vitamins C and E to protect skin from irritation, plus soothing aloe for added hydration. As a result, it keeps sensitive areas nourished while you shave, thereby preventing those dreaded red bumps.
The Shea Better Shave Cream has earned over 11,300 five-star ratings on Amazon from shoppers who love that it glides on like a thick, hydrating lotion.
"I'm obsessed with this shaving cream," one reviewer wrote. "It actually leaves my legs moisturized, whereas most leave me feeling dry and itchy. I also have sensitive skin and contact dermatitis, but have never had an issue with this product. A little goes a long way, so it lasts awhile and does a great job preventing razor burn or small cuts."
"This is the best shave cream I have come across in my life! I can use it on my armpits and bikini area with ZERO razor burn," said another. "The consistency is like a lotion, it doesn't foam up. When you're done, your legs feel like silk. I will never use anything else."
If you want to up your shaving game for the spring and summer, now's the time to order this product. The Vanilla Bliss scent from the viral TikTok is already sold out on Amazon, but you can still buy it at Ulta. Meanwhile, the Pomegranate Raspberry scent, which reviewers say smells "more like sweet strawberries," is available at both retailers.
