Kirbie Johnson is a beauty reporter for POPSUGAR, and in the video below, she shows us how to make homemade , moisturizing shaving cream. You will only need four ingredients, and you’ve most likely already got some, if not all, of them lying around the house: shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and coconut oil. Kirbie walks us through the process of making the shaving cream and also gives some stellar tips for creating your own pump bottle for the mixture once you’re done.
Kirbie’s recipe for shaving cream is absolutely perfect for those of us who really love to pick and choose the scents of our beauty products. Kirbie decides to stick with simple coconut, but your options are as varied as your favorite scents of shampoo and conditioner. I personally am a huge fan of vanilla as it inspires a soothing and homey feeling for me.
Mixed with the coconut oil, it makes a perfectly sweet yet tropical shaving cream! The other great part about Kirbie’s shaving cream recipe is that it allows you to choose whatever shampoo, conditioner, and lotion work best for your skin. While some people may feel completely comfortable using generic brands, others may wish to go for organic, hypoallergenic products that work best with sensitive skin types. This homemade shaving cream recipe gives you the perfect amount of freedom to make the shaving cream that’s best for you!
While I love the idea of Kirbie’s homemade pump bottle, it does require a bit of extra time and effort. An easy way to bypass this step is to save a pump bottle from the store that has run out and just re-use it for your homemade shaving cream.
