Busy Beauty is a Beauty Must-Have for Busy Moms

As a mom of two toddlers, it’s sometimes difficult to find time to take of MY needs.  I’ve made it through most of the day and onto dinner before realizing I haven’t ate a single thing because I spent my breakfast and lunch time chasing my boys around trying to get them to eat.  In earlier years, I’ve taken showers and left shampoo still in my hair to tend to freaking-out babies and then having to dunk my head under the kitchen sink to rinse.  Soaking in a hot bath… maybe, but in a peaceful environment for more than 2 minutes, NEVER.  How about a manicure or pedicure? Oh PLEASE!

It’s the end of July and I believe I’m still getting ready for my summer look!  Thank goodness I found Busy Beauty!  There are just some things you can’t just let go… shaving is one of them.  If you’re anything like me, you don’t have the time to spend on shaving like you use to.  Introducing Busy Beauty the Showerless Shave Gel!

Busy Beauty is a Beauty Must-Have for Busy Moms

Time is precious and you can’t ever get it back so products that can save me time spent doing things I need to do so that I have time to do the things I want to do is exactly what I need!  We often forget to take care of ourselves when we’re so busy ensuring our family, especially our little ones, are taken care of.  Some of my beauty routine has been taken off my to-do list since becoming a mom but shaving is definitely not one of them.  I don’t just mean our legs because let’s face it, hairy armpits and mustaches too will never make a statement.  So when do you find the time?

This is where Busy Beauty Showerless Shaving Gel comes in. Previously called LIXA, it’s a shaving gel that allows you to shave anywhere and in less than 5 minutes! It’s a 3-in-1 product that takes care of your pre-shave, shave, and post-shave needs without the use of water!

Busy Beauty Showerless Shaving Gel Features:
  • First & Only Shaving Gel with No Water Needed
  • Natural ingredients perfect for sensitive skin
  • Includes essential oils: Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Cloves, Oats, and Ginger for smooth skin without razor burn, irritation, or ingrown hairs while helping boost circulation
  • Cruelty-Free & Environmentally-Friendly
  • Vegan
  • Paraben & Alcohol Free
  • Travel-Friendly TSA-Approved
  • 60-Day Money Back Guarantee
Directions for Use

Easy 3 Steps for a quick and smooth shave!

  1. Apply the Gel – For my underarms, I used 1-2 pumps and for my legs, 2-3 pumps every 3 inches down the front and back of my legs for best full coverage. Spread the gel using your hand until you have a thin gel film.
  2. Shave as you would with a razor – The hair will be picked up and collect at the back of the razor. Wipe razor clean after use. Rub in excess gel as a moisturizer.
  3. Apply more gel as a post-shave moisturizer – No need to add lotion!

The bottle itself is super cute! I just love the design and minimalistic yet informative label. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I received this product to review. In my mind I thought I would still get some kind of lather I would have to rub in after shaving and was pleasantly surprised to see the gel have a water-like consistency. The gel isn’t tacky and smooths on very nicely. Definitely provided a great pre-shave and post-shave moisturizer which I thought was really great because it would save me time from having to put on lotion after shaving.

When I used this to shave my legs, I was afraid I would actually run out but pleasantly surprised that a little goes a long way. According to Busy Beauty website, each 3.4 fl. oz. bottle will last about 15 shaves even using a gracious amount of shaving gel. I was also skeptical that the hair would actually collect behind the razor and stay there but I’m happy to say that it does. Clean up is super easy too since I carry baby wipes in my purse everywhere I go. Just wipe clean the blades and back of the razor and you’re done!


Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel is available on Amazon and at Busy Beauty website. It is currently (7/24/17) on sale for $9.97 originally $14.99.

Wife, Stay at Home Mom of two boys, and blogger. Friends and family call me Kaye but my personal favorite is "Mom." I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to be at home with my two baby boys. As an engineer by career, and stay-at-home mom by choice, I write about how to “Invent. Innovate. Design. Mommyhood” and what that entails.
