Don’t you just love it when a cheap little impulse buy becomes your new favorite thing? That’s precisely what happened to me a couple of weeks ago when I grabbed this hot pink tube of EOS Pomegranate Raspberry Shave Cream while waiting to check out at Ulta.
My sister had already told me that she loved it, but I’ve never been all that into shaving creams – run of the mill conditioner works just fine and is fairly inexpensive. But I loved everything about this pretty little tube, including its $1.99 price tag. So into my shopping bag it went!
I’ve been using it for the past couple weeks and I am absolutely in love with it. It’s packed with skin-softening shea butter and helps prevent nicks and razor burn. The scent is mild and the cream lathers lightly. My legs haven’t looked or felt this smooth in ages!
I don’t know about you, but in the cold, dark, dead of winter, keeping my legs freshly shaven and silky smooth starts to drift toward the bottom of my to-do list. Maybe it’s the abundance of pants that I wear this time of year. Perhaps I’m hoping a little extra leg hair will shield me from the icy December winds. Either way, it’s hard for me to get excited about shaving my legs.
Browsing the beauty section at my favorite natural-goods store, I happened upon a bottle of Kiss My Face Lavender/Shea Moisture Shave. I liked it’s pretty packaging and mild lavender scent. So I bought some, and headed home to my shower.
The first thing I noticed about the Moisture Shave is that a tiny dollop lathered up my whole leg, and stayed there. So many shave gels and creams rinse away with the tiniest spray from the shower. Not this one! And my razor glided easily over each section of my leg, leaving behind incredibly soft, silky skin.
I immediately hopped out of the shower and slathered on a generous layer of body lotion. Suddenly, my cave woman legs had been transformed into soft, sexy limbs.
Almost worth writing a song about.
