Shave Sans Water

Lixa is a waterless shave gel that’s a moisturizer, too—making it perfect to use on the go. You can shave without taking a shower or using the sink. That’s exactly what prompted college students Michael Leahy and Jamie Steenbakkers to create it. While discussing product ideas in a business class, Jamie said that the bathroom stalls in her dorm were too cramped to shave her legs. The duo decided a gel for dry shaving would be perfect. Lixa works any time you need to shave without water—camping, at the gym, or to touch up that missed spot you notice once you’re out in the sunlight. Just apply the gel and then shave it off. There’s no need to rinse—wipe off stray hairs with a towel. Rub any excess gel into your skin, enjoy the moisturizing benefits of tea tree and eucalyptus oils and pro-vitamin B5. Now there’s no more missed spots—not when you can shave anywhere.

    Hey guys! Lixa is a water free shave gel that allows you to shave anywhere, without having to take a shower. We came up with the idea for Lixa while at Babson College, and now here we are! We're excited to launch with The Grommet today, so let us know if you have any questions!

    @Shawn Yes! LIXA is great for men. Many of our male customers use it on-the-go, when they don't have access to water, or as a replacement for their regular shaving cream and after shave to keep skin irritation free and moisturized.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if there is a strong scent that lingers after shaving, for I am sensitive to scents. Thank you.

    @Cindy hi Cindy,

    Our product is scented with fragrance, but it's mostly natural essential oils. The scent does not linger. Thank you for your question!
