To be completely honest, I never use shaving cream! It’s something I have somehow gotten away without using over the years, and if I happen upon it in a Christmas stocking or a gift bag then I give it a whirl. I am never that girl who has hairy legs in the dead of winter. I MUST have shaved legs at all times! You never know when are going to wear a short skirt – even in the winter! This little vice of mine of keeping up on my grooming makes it even more suprising that I don’t have a shaving cream that I love or need.
When I was sent the eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream in Vanilla Bliss, I really wanted to give it an honest try to see what all of the hype was about.
First of all – I love vanilla anything, so the Vanilla Bliss scent was a bonus! I also liked that the container had a great pump so it was easy to apply. When you are in the shower and working with razor blades, things need to be easy!
I really like that this shave cream doesn’t require water – now that is a time saver! I gave it a try and it worked well without water. In the shower was the best because the room filled with the vanilla scent which made me happy.
The shave cream claimed to moisturize for up to 24 hours, so I thought I would test this theory. I shaved one leg with just my regular razor, and my other leg using the shaving cream to see if there was a difference.
I hate to say it, but there really was a difference. One leg felt so much smoother and softer than the other – the one I used the shaving cream with. It seemed to keep moisture in for a whole day, which really surprised this girl who never uses shaving cream.
This shave cream is perfect for a girl on the go like myself! If you are headed out the door and need a quick touch up you can easily just add some eos Ultra Moisturizing Shaving Cream, do a quick shave and head out the door to whatever fabulous destination you have planned! Or if you are like me, maybe you are going no where fabulous, like just on a quick ice cream run but noticed you missed a spot on your legs – in those obsessive compulsive moments you don’t need to waste more precious moments worrying about it. Shave and go without water!
Unfortunately I now identify with those who think shaving cream is a must-have. I loved the smell, and how moisturized my legs were after shaving with it. It really impressed me, and now it’s part of my ever-growing beauty arsenal.
The eos Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream also comes in Pomegranate Raspberry and Lavender Jasmine. So if you are looking to add something to that Christmas stocking I was talking about earlier, send a couple more flavours my way please! It retails for approximately $4.50 CDN.
