You're unlikely to have side effects from using shaving gel. Most contain lubricants and moisturizers and are gentle on the skin. However, different products contain different ingredients. For example, some contain special moisturizers, vitamins, and botanicals. It's always possible that you may have a reaction to an ingredient in a shaving gel. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
