Simply Smooth

My favorite shave creme is Wet's Inttimo, Kama Sutra's Intimate Caress is up there but Simply Sensual has now earned a spot in the shower next to Inttimo. It smells nice, fresh and clean! It gives me a smooth shave with no nicks or razor burn and it keeps my skin moisturized! I highly recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin because it worked like a dream for me!

Use


Simply Sensual shave creme by Classic Erotica is a shave creme available in 3 scents: White Lavender, Ginger/Pomegranate and Green Tea, I'm reviewing the Green Tea. This shave creme protects your skin while you shave and leaves it feeling smooth and moisturized afterwards. It can also be used as hair conditioner and the label provides instructions on how to use it as such. This is a unisex shave creme that can be used by both males and females and it is safe for all over use including the face. I have very sensitive skin and I have
Keratosis Pilaris on my legs and arms which can usually be tricky to shave over but this shave creme did the trick!

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity




This shave creme is thicker and the closest comparison that I could make for anyone that doesn't own any of the shave cremes available on Eden is to compare it to hair conditioner. The consistency, thickness and texture are quite similar to hair conditioner. Comparing this to other shave cremes on Eden, Simply Sensual is closest in appearance and feel to Wet's Inttimo shave creme. I've included pictures that compare it to Wet's Inttimo and Kama Sutra's Intimate Caress. It's easy to dispense and it stays in place once you have it where you want it. It lathers lightly but not as much as a shave foam would, I actually liked that it didn't lather too much because it makes it easier to see where you want to shave. When I was applying it, it had a nice smooth and slick feeling to it but once it was rinsed off it left my skin feeling smooth and velvety. Here's what it looks like once I started rubbing it on, this is as lathered up as it gets!
    • Smooth
    • Thick
    • Velvety

Taste / Aroma

I really liked the smell of this, I am reviewing the green tea scent. I cannot think of anything similar to compare it to, I can only describe the scent as fresh and clean. It isn't floral and it isn't sweet, this is definitely the scent you want to go with if you're looking for something unisex. The scent isn't light, it is a stronger scent and I could still smell it after I was finished in the shower and had rinsed it off but by that point it was a bit lighter than it had been when I first applied it. This is the first scented shave creme that I have used where I can honestly say that this is a unisex scent and would appeal to both males and females. This shave creme is not edible, it is not meant to be ingested and I don't think that it would taste very good if you decided to taste it so please don't eat this!
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell

Performance

As a shave creme this performed awesomely. I only used 1 pump per leg and 1 pump for my underarms and bikini zone. While using this I had no problem with nicking myself, it lathered slightly but I could still see where I was shaving and it was a smooth experience. This shave creme gave me the smoothest shave I've had in a long time so to say that I was impressed would be an understatement. It left my dry skin feeling moisturized too! Sometimes when I use scented products on my legs, they end up painfully itching for hours which is why I have switched from drug store shave foams to the shave cremes here on Eden and I'm happy to report that I have found another winner! I look forward to trying the other scents because this shave creme made for a smooth shave experience with no nicks, it left my skin moisturized and I had no razor burn! I did try it out as a hair conditioner and was less than impressed, it seemed to actually dry out my hair. I followed the instructions on the bottle and left it on for 5 minutes since I have very long hair and then proceeded to rinse it out. My hair actually felt drier than it has in a long time so I have since gone back to using my actual hair conditioner. Can't win them all I guess but this is first and foremost a shave creme and an amazing one at that!
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Needs to be washed off with soap and water

Packaging


Simply Sensual shave creme by Classic Erotica comes in one size which is an 8 oz. plastic bottle. The bottle features a pump dispenser that conveniently dispenses the product when you press down on the pump top. Because of the way that this product dispenses, I wouldn't advise traveling with it and if you do I strongly suggest putting it in a Ziploc bag away from other toiletries and packed belongings because if the pump top gets bumped at any point, it most likely will leak. Instructions for use are fairly basic but they are printed on the label and are as follows:
Body Shave: Wet area to be shaved. Apply a small amount of creme to lightly coat your skin. shave & Rinse.
Hair Conditioner: Shampoo hair & rinse well. Using hands, apply creme and massage well into hair. Allow to remain on hair for 1-2 minutes for normal hair, up to 5 minutes for coarse hair. Rinse thoroughly.
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Recyclable
    • Very informative packaging

Experience

As I mentioned, I have sensitive skin and usually anything strongly scented doesn't work well for me. I found this to have a stronger scent so I was skeptical before using it and expected my legs to burn and itch for a few hours after I used it. It had the complete opposite effect, my legs were not itchy, they felt just fine and not only that but they were soft too! The scent did not irritate my skin and my skin is usually very dry but it did a fantastic job moisturizing as well. I can't wait to try this with my new Coochy Aftershave powder because I'm already sure that'll be a winning combination! I'm happy to have found another shave creme here on Eden that works wonderfully for me and I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin!
Follow-up commentary
I still like this! I like it because it performs well and it's a fresh and clean unisex scent. It's not overpowering and only leaves a clean scent behind after it is rinsed off which is nice because it doesn't interfere with my perfume.
