Shaving has become painful for me because the cool dry air of autumn dries the heck out of my skin causing it to crack, peel and flake, which makes shaving difficult. However, lately I have been trying the Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave for Dry Skin in the scent Cashmere Rain and I have to say it hydrates and soothes my skin enough for a comfortable close smooth shave.
The shaving cream comes in a pink squeezable bottle that is very easy to squeeze the cream out of and into your hands. The shaving cream itself is very thick like a body cream or butter and applies like one. The shaving cream does not lather into bubbles. Instead, it covers the skin with a nice heavy thick coating that does not wash off easily while shaving. The shaving cream is moisturizing and protecting to the skin and is made with nourishing skin softening ingredients such as dimethicone, mineral oil, olive butter, soy, waxes, vitamins, minerals, aloe, and camellia. When you squeeze the shaving cream out of the bottle, you will notice the light pink color, soft creamy texture and lovely sweet floral scent it has.
The way I have been using this moisturizing shaving cream is by getting into my bath and soaking in warm water for about 30 minutes to help soften up my skin. I find doing this makes shaving easier. Then I squeeze a small handful of the shaving cream into my hands and place a nice even layer onto the area I am shaving. Next, I shave and rinse my razor as I go for a nice smooth close shave. After, I wipe and rinse the rest of the shaving lotions off my skin and pat my body dry.
I notice immediately after getting out of the tub how soft, smooth and hairless my body and skin feels. I even have a nice light floral scent to my skin and body that I love. I have also noticed since using this shaving cream on a daily basis that my hair is getting finer and finer on my legs, which is great because soon I will not have to shave as often.
I do think the Skintimate Moisturizing Cream Shave for Dry Skin is affordable and worth using. I would recommend it to anyone who has dry sensitive skin like I do because it does help hydrate and protect the skin as you shave. I do hope those of you who try this shave cream out like it as much as I do. I wish you all the best of luck with getting a close smooth non-irritating shaves.
