Quick Tip

Have you ever tried using conditioner--you know, the stuff that you put on your hair after the shampoo--as a substitute for shaving cream or shaving gel?

I read about a while ago (I think it was on Lauren's blog).

When my shaving gel ran out a couple of weeks ago, I tried using conditioner instead.

Lauren's right. You really should try it. My skin is smoother and feels moisturized after shaving. Shaving gel (contains alcohol) always left my skin kind of dry.

Plus the conditioner is less expensive (if you buy the cheap kind), and it's better for the environment because you're not throwing away all those cans. The only drawback is that it's not as fun and foamy as the shaving gel, but I'm adjusting.

(If I actually read this on your blog, and you're not Lauren, please let me know. I want to give credit where it's due. Thanks!)
