Rapha Shaving Cream and Post-Shave Lotion
Shaving Cream, $20; Post-Shave Lotion, $30, Rapha.cc
Rapha’s apparel line is known for having a luxurious feel, and the company’s skincare products follow suit. The subtle fragrance of pine, rosemary and lavender beats the overpowering scent of typical shaving cream, and it’s appropriate for your legs and face (and for men and women). The cream leaves legs smooth and soft, and the aloe, menthol and cocoa extract in the post-shave lotion add to the soothing feel.
Leg Lube Performance Shave Gel
Both men and women testers love the super-smooth Leg Lube for shaves in or out of the shower. The clear gel, which comes in a clever chain-lube-like bottle, is travel-friendly, and a small drop goes a long way. The combination of aloe and eucalyptus leaves legs feeling tingly, fresh and ready to ride.
Zevlin Leg Shave Cream
Zevlin’s shave cream protects against razor burn with a self-proclaimed “super slippery” formula that doesn’t require a lot of water to work effectively. Lavender gives it antibacterial properties, and the aloe and shea butter work as moisturizers. Zevlin also sells a $1 individual packet for quick shaves at the gym or on the road.
