A product I hate so much that I'm making a whole post about it.
I hope it is evident from the name of my blog that I generally write about makeup. Once in a while I'll talk about a fun indie bath & body company, cus that stuff is awesome too! I do not ever write about shaving cream, because that shit is boring, and it's not fun, pretty, or awesome. But due to the fact that my legs and wallet have been defiled by this mockery of a shaving cream, and due to the fact that I keep seeing people RECOMMENDING this crap, I decided to make a ranty post about how much it sucks. I care about you guys and don't want you to make the same mistake I did when I bought... *DUN DUN DUN* THE SHAVING CREAM FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL! I bought this Eos shaving cream from Walgreens a couple months ago, wanting to test it. I don't remember the exact price, only that it was about $1 more than my usual Skintimate shaving cream (in the scent Flirty Mango). I wouldn't even call this product a shaving cream. It is more like an extremely runny lotion, or like using a bar of soap on your legs to shave instead of actual shaving cream (which I find annoyingly ineffective). You would think, that since it's basically just a lotion, your legs would feel soft and moisturized after you use it. Wrong! My legs are really dry and sensitive, and after I shave they are usually really itchy. This product wasn't any different. It says you can use it wet or dry- true, but it sucks either way. When I tried using it on dry legs, it left behind a really thin layer of the cream wherever I shaved that I had to wash off. The razor couldn't seem to get it all. A lot of the product also got stuck in between the razor blades, and wouldn't rinse out. This made more hair get stuck in the blades as well, so basically the blade is ruined after one use. The sink in my bathroom got extremely clogged up last month and was practically impossible to fix, and I just now realized it was probably due to the shaving cream that was going down the drain. You also have to use a huge amount to fully cover your legs. I have only tried using it twice, and if I ever bothered to try it again, there's only enough left for 2 or 3 more shaves. The only redeeming quality is that it smells nice. I picked out the scent Lavender Jasmine. I don't think it smells like either, but it's nice. Bottom line: sound the alarms and avoid at all costs! I like to end angry posts with a nice picture ^_^ Here you go!
