Bulldog is a brand of British skincare products ranging from moisturisers, face scrub, lip balm, shave gel among others. The company was created in 2005 but I have been using the product range since it was available in the North American market. I’ve had better luck with British products on my skin type than I have those which are made in America so I was pleased when these arrived here.

Bulldog Shave GelI have used the following products which I would recommend:

I noticed in Shoppers Drug Mart that the Bulldog Shave Gel was on sale at CAD $8.95 so I bought one to try out.

Review

Day 1

I thought I was doing something wrong when I used this product.  Other Shave Gel products I have used in the past I have just applied to the skin and it froths up nicely, however, this product barely produced anything but remained kind of slick. When I shaved it was ok but my shaver (Schick/Wilkinson Sword) didn’t glide across my skin as it does with other products.

Day 2

I watched a review (positive) of the product on YouTube and this bloke placed some gell in a dish and built the lather up with a shaving brush. Duh! Maybe I should have done this the day before. However, when I tried it this method it still didn’t foam up that much, if at all.

Day 3

I placed more of the gel on my face to see if I could get more of a lather, just a little, but kind of vanished within seconds.

Summary

The product did give me an adequate shave but didn’t feel as good as Proraso other others I have used. I will of course finish off the tube I got but would most likely won’t buy any more. No matter, I still love their other products.

One note, the price is higher than other skincare products on the market, not the most expensive but I always stock up when there is a sale on. Of course, now, I have enough to last me for quite some time to come.

Overall Score of the Shave Gel:
