If you are not allergic to peanuts, peanut butter is a worthwhile option as long as you use the smooth rather than the chunky variety.
Peanut butter is much less expensive than shaving cream. Since you will not be eating it, buy the least expensive brand. It will get the job done just as well.
At a nearby store, the cheapest shaving gel is $1.29 for 11 ounces which is about 12 cents an ounce. The cheapest peanut butter is $2 for 18 ounces which makes it much cheaper than shaving cream. Peanut butter is best used when mixed with water. Therefore, you do not have to use very much peanut butter. That means a little goes a long way.
So how exactly do you shave with peanut butter?
According to The Doctors television show, use peanut butter as shaving cream, which is loaded with oils and vitamins and acts as a moisturizer.
- Apply warm water to skin to heat and moisturize it.
- Massage peanut butter on face, as you would shaving cream.
- Shave, then rinse thoroughly with water and pat the skin dry.
