Have you ever tried to make your own shaving cream?

We did.  Here's how our's turned out & what you'll need.
  •  1 cup conditioner
  • 1 cup shampoo
  • 5 tablespoons lotion
  • 5 tablespoons baby oil

We used an empty shampoo bottle, rinsed it out and then started putting in the ingredients.  We just spooned them in, starting with the conditioner, shampoo, lotion then the baby oil.  Closed the lid and shook it really good.  You are supposed to let this sit about an hour before using it.  We did.
This is supposed to resemble 
 which is what both of our daughters use and they love it!  This homemade version worked just fine for me, however the girls didn't like it.  The original is much thicker and the homemade version is rather runny.  I'm sure you could play around with the ingredients, but my girls have decided that shave cream is like cheese.  You don't skimp and buy the "off" brand!
Here's where we first got the idea to try our hand at making our own via Pinterest.

Have you tried making your own?  Did you like it?  Do you have any other homemade recipes you'd like to share?  

PS - Don't forget about the DO IT YA SELF Monday link party that is going on right now!  Link up then go tell a friend, the more the merrier!

  1. I am not sure making it would be much cheaper seeing how you are using a cup of shampoo and conditioner. I just look for sales and combine with coupons and it's usually under a buck to buy. Of course, the real savings would be if my daughter would learn how NOT to use a gallon of it everytime she shaves!!! ugh! Good for you for trying though!

  2. Neat idea! I might try this!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I could see the same thing happening in our family. I would think this would be fine (I tend to use soap anyway) and my girls would say buy the real thing! But I like the idea!

  4. Enjoyed reading how to make shaving cream... would never have come to me you can even do this.. Love it... come and see me when you get chance.. Hugs, Cindy
