Dollar stores can be great places to buy toiletries and personal care products. Not only can I find deals on certain name brand products, but I’ve also found some generic brands and private labels that can be decent, including:
While browsing in Dollar Tree recently, I spotted several brands of shaving cream that I wasn’t familiar with. I often buy Skintimate shaving cream or its generic equivalent from Target or my local grocery store. I’ve also used Trader Joe’s Cream Shave.
I’m not above trying new brands, especially if they’re affordable. So I picked up two bottles of Bath & Beauty Super Smooth Shave Cream at Dollar Tree, one in a raspberry scent and another in a lavender scent.
Bath & Beauty Super Smooth Shave Cream cost $1.25 for a 7-ounce container at Dollar Tree. That comes out to about 18 cents per ounce. The bottle states this is comparable to eos Shave Cream.
For comparison, a 7-ounce bottle of eos Shea Better Shave Cream at Walmart cost about 57 cents per ounce. That’s more than 3 times the price per ounce of the Dollar Tree shave cream, so you’re definitely getting a lower price at DT. The Dollar Tree shave cream is even a slightly better deal than other store brands such as Equate Shave Cream at Walmart, which went for about 20 cents per ounce for an 8-ounce container at the time of writing.
Bathy & Beauty shave cream is distributed by TSM Brands LLC. Their website states they are “a leading supplier of value and private label brands within the health, beauty, and household products segments.” TSM manufactures a variety of personal care products, including facial cleanser, sunscreen, body wash, and hand soap. The company was founded in 1998 and is based in Turkey, with a U.S. distribution facility in New Jersey. These shave creams were made in Turkey.
The Dollar Tree website lists a number of products under the Bath & Beauty private label from TSM Brands, including micellar cleansing water, body mist, hand soap, facial cleanser, charcoal acne scrub, shave gel, and nail polish remover.
Here’s more information about the shave cream, according to the bottle:
- Advanced smooth glide formula
- Moisturizes and nourishes
- Formulated with shea butter, aloe vera, avena sativa (oat) extract, and vitamin E for skin conditioning
- Paraben free
- Phthalate free
- Offers 24-hour moisture
- Works wet and dry
You use this like any other shaving cream or shaving gel. Apply a thin layer to skin, distributing evenly, and shave.
I like this shaving cream. It smells fine and has a consistency similar to hair conditioner. It’s smooth and lotion-like and feels moisturizing on my skin. I also like that you can close the pumps on these with a single, simple twist, without having to push down on the pump and waste a small amount of product. That, plus the fact that these are not the largest bottles of shaving cream, makes them especially good if you’re traveling. This shaving cream is so inexpensive that I’ll probably continue to buy it to use all the time at home, too.
The only downside is that you have to pump the bottle multiple times to get enough shaving cream out to do your legs. I find that about about four to six pumps gives me enough to shave one leg. It’s not as fast as pushing a button and watching foaming gel spray out of a Skintimate can, but for the price, it’s a reasonable tradeoff.
Bath & Beauty Super Smooth Shave Cream at Dollar Tree is comparable to eos shaving cream, but the Dollar Tree version costs a lot less. This is a nice shaving cream with good scents and a smooth consistency like lotion. It works fine for shaving and is one of the better private label personal care products I’ve tried so far at Dollar Tree.
