I hate normal shaving cream that comes out looking like it’s as soft as whipped cream. It always dries out my skin and I still even up with razor burn. My sister swears by shaving with coconut oil. I tried it out but it was just so hard out of the container. Something happens to the structure of the coconut oil when you whip it up with a mixer that makes it perfect for shaving. I did run into the problem with my razor getting all gunked up with the oil, but I found out dish soap helps dissolves the oil on the razor. You are going to LOVE this Vanilla Coconut Shaving Cream.
If you do not have a stand mixer then you can use a hand mixer – I however personally love my kitchen aid mixer! You will want to use bowls that do not slip when you are mixing,These with the rubber bottoms are my favorite bowls.
Now if you are wanting something different then Vanilla in your shaving cream use essential oils. You can change up the scent that you are making just buy switching out the vanilla for an essential oil, and you only need a few drops.

Some of my favorite oils to use when I want a change from Vanilla are: orange, grapefruit, and lavender.
