Inttimo shave kreme - shaving gel by Wet Lubricants - review by Jul!a

Eve Should Have Picked This Forbidden Fruit

If you have the extra money to spend all the time, buy this all the time. It lets you get a close shave all the time and leaves your skin feeling soft and silky. On top of that, it has a delicious scent and you don't need a whole lot at one time.
Smells fantastic, leaves skin soft and silky, little goes a long way
Slick hands can make opening the bottle tricky, doesn't seem cost effective

Inttimo Shave Kreme is a great choice for those with sensitive skin and aren't as concerned about price. It's designed to leave you feeling luxuriously smooth everywhere you shave with it; it doesn't disappoint.

The bottle is really tiny; small enough that I can wrap my tiny hand all the way around it and you can't see anything other than me making a fist. It holds 1.5 fluid ounces (44mL) and doesn't scream to the world "I came from a sex shop", making it an adorable little addition to your shower or bath.

The label on the front tells you that you have the forbidden fruit scent and the label on the back tells you that it shields against irritation and razor bumps and is enhanced with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Jojoba Oil. You can peel the bottom up to get instructions in both English and French, which is basically to gently apply to wet skin before shaving, shave, and then rinse.

To use, press down on the one side of the lid to open it up, turn upside down, shake, and dispense. You won't need too much. I found that about a nickel sized dollop per leg worked well, a dime sized dollop took care of both underarms, and about a penny sized dollop took care of my lady bits. The size of the bottle means that if you have something else that works well for your legs or underarms you should probably stick with that. Honestly, my body wash works just as well for my legs as Inttimo does.

This stuff comes out of the bottle nicely; there's no "oh no! I just lost half the bottle!" that you can get with some other shower products, which was really nice. It has a really creamy and silky texture to it and feels really nice on the skin. It doesn't gum up your razor as bad as Coochy can, but you should still rinse the blade fairly often. It rinses off the blade very easily too.

The scent is just wonderful. I haven't quite been able to put my finger on exactly what it reminds me of, but I would compare it almost to a cross between cherry Kool-Aid and a floral perfume. The scent doesn't linger for too long afterwards. The scent from my body wash usually covers it up, but if you just use this and nothing else, the scent will be faintly there a few hours later, but only if your nose is pressed well into the skin.

The ingredients for this are:

Water, Aloe Barbadensis (organic aloe vera) Leaf Juice, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Hydroxyethyl Ethylcellulose, Wheat Amino Acids, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Silk Amino Acids, Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5), Avena Sativa (oat) Kernel Extract, Allantoin, Stearyl Alcohol, PEG-75 Lanolin, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Fragrance (Parfum), Tetrasodium EDTA, PEG-8 Dimethicone, PEG-8 Ricinoleate, Fragrance (parfum) *(intentional repeat)*, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Citric Acid, Blue 1 (CI#42090), Red 33 (CI#17200)

A caution for those with allergies, this does contain wheat and oat extracts.

You'll want to try and avoid direct spray from the shower head as Inttimo does wash off fairly easily; although I have yet to have steam melt it away.

Men can use this too, both on their junk and on their face. If you really wanted, you could use this as a hair conditioner too, but the size and price of this bottle make that a poor financial decision.

I read a neat tip about how to reduce blade gumming and extend the life of your Coochy shaving crème; while I haven't personally used this trick yet, I don't see why it wouldn't work for Inttimo. It’s great for those of us who are a bit harder of sight and don't always shower with contacts in. You're supposed to take a dime size dollop of your creme and mix it with about a pea size dollop of regular shaving cream. This extends the life of the product, leaves the blades of your razor less gummy, and makes it foam up a bit which will in turn make it easier to see.
I love everything about Inttimo, except the size and price of the bottle. It smells fantastic, always leaves me clean shaven with no bumps or irritation of any kind, and doesn't really gum up my razor. But the bottle is so small and it's so expensive for the amount that you're receiving. That's the only real flaw I can think of.

Long story short, I'm happy I bought it; but, unless I can find a more cost effective bottle somewhere else, I probably won't buy again.
Follow-up commentary
I currently alternate between this Inttimo shaving cream and a few others, but every time I use this, I'm still left with a smooth close shave, and silky soft skin. I still don't think it's worth the money if this is the only product you're using and you use it often, but if you just want something to add a bit of variety scent wise, I think it's worth it.
