The difference between gel and shaving foam

Many of you ask us why we should use shaving gel instead of foam. Let's see what the reasons are.

Using a shaving cream or gel will leave your skin feeling soothed and refreshed.

Based on personal preferences, you can choose shaving foam or gel.

But are there tangible and evident differences? To answer this question, let's take a look at the characteristics of both.

Shaving foam features:

  1. Instant light foam
  2. Delicate
  3. Easily rinsed

Shaving gel features:

  1. Richer foam
  2. Better lube
  3. Greater smoothness of the razor
  4. Greater skin protection

Every man has a unique face. The only way to figure out what's best for you is to experiment.
We at Bulligans have chosen the Gel!

In order to perform its main tasks, which are precisely those of making the razor slide and avoiding irritation, the gel must contain specific ingredients such as glycerin, essential for its moisturizing properties and for its ability to restore the hydrolipidic film.

Bulligans shaving gel, for example, in addition to glycerin, also contains salicylic acid of natural origin, which has an exfoliating action and counteracts imperfections, and mineralizing thermal water, which helps strengthen natural defences, regenerate and soothe the skin .

Our gel has been specially made for finishing the contours of a beard, moustache, sideburns and neck or classic shave.

Its transparent and foam-free formulation guarantees excellent precision.

Thanks to its components and its aquatic and flowery "salt crystals" fragrance, it softens and protects the skin from irritation, leaving a feeling of absolute freshness.
