Does Shaving Cream Matter? Which One Is Best?

I never thought much about shaving cream until I got a sample of a high-end shave cream in one of my Birchboxes a while back.
Honestly, I always bought the cheapest shave cream/gel I could get, sometimes even using men's shaving cream (Barbasol!) because it was so much cheaper. If I could score a sale on "femininely scented" shave cream or gel, all the better. But it really didn't matter much.
Then came my run-in with First Aid Beauty (FAB) Smooth Shave Cream.
My first thoughts: "Oh, great. Shave cream. *sigh* Why couldn't they have sent me some makeup instead?"

New Year Makeover Giveaway! $90+ value

Wondering where I've been? And what about that makeup giveaway I've mentioned a few times?
Well, life threw me a curve ball a couple of weeks ago. I'll save you all the gory details and just tell you that I had a huge kidney stone that required not 1 but 2 surgeries and a 4 day stay in the hospital. Add an exceptionally long recovery time (nope, still not recovered fully, thank you for asking), and you've got 1 blog growing weeds quite nicely.
Well, I'm here again and I'm gonna get the place cleaned up and back in business. Quick.
As a matter of fact, I'm giving away a fantastic makeover set to one lucky winner to get thinks going.
What's in it?
Glad you asked.
A little over $90 worth of fab goodies!

Hair stuck in the 00's or even the 90's?

Do you remember scrunchies from the late 80's/early 90's?
Or butterfly clips of the 00's?
Are you still using them? In public?
If you are because you don't know what else to use, let me offer up a suggestion:
Ribbon Elastics.
