make your own shaving cream at home

If you’re still on the hunt for a fun idea for Father’s Day, trying whipping up our DIY Shaving Cream for dad. This is an awesome last minute Father’s Day gift that is so easy to make all the kids can help! The Shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil are great skin softeners to prep the skin for a close shave, and the bergamot essential oil leaves a clean, fresh scent. If you have a little extra time to spare, pair it with a fancy customized shave set like one of my favorites from Art of Shaving. ~Brandee

DIY Shaving Cream For Dad 


1 cup Shea Butter

1/2 cup Coconut Oil 

1/2 teaspoon Jojoba Oil 

25 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil 


First, soften Shea Butter (it is very hard in natural form) 

Add Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to large mixing bowl. 

Add Jojoba and Bergamot oils to bowl. 

Using a hand mixer, mix all ingredients for 10 minutes. (This will create a light, whipped texture). 

Store in an air tight container. 

Brandee’s Chic Tip: The key to getting a light, whipped texture is by letting the Shea soften. You can also whip Shea butter with a hand mixer in it’s natural form, but it will result in a thicker, creamier texture that is a little harder to spread evenly over skin.
