Intimate caress shave cream - shaving foam by Kama Sutra - review by RomanticGoth

Happy with Honeysuckle

Intimate Caress from Kama Sutra is a rich, moisturizing shave creme for women that leaves a light, fresh scent that lasts for hours.
Easy to use, good for people with sensitive skin, smells pretty, moisturizing.
Scent may be too strong for some, doesn't work as well on intimate areas.

extremely useful review


Kama Sutra Intimate Caress is a must have for anyone who wants a smooth shave that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturized with a light lingering scent. It is perfect for people with sensitive skin because it is Dermatologist and allergy tested. It works on legs, underarms, and your more intimate areas. In and out of the shower.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Intimate Caress by Kama Sutra feels more like a lotion. It has a very thick, rich feeling when applied to the skin. It is thick enough that it will stay in place if you have to move around to shave. Unlike most shave cremes, this does not foam up as it gets rubbed in. It will just rub in and get absorbed like any lotion would.

When applied, it leaves a light coating that looks like you haven't rubbed in your lotion. It is on the thinner side of shave cremes and gels, so it works better outside of the shower.

Taste / Aroma

Have you ever come across a honeysuckle vine in the summer humidity? Kama Sutra Intimate Caress Honeysuckle smells like that. Very rich, fresh and almost musky at the same time. It smells like standing in a garden. Not artificial or chemical at all.

The honeysuckle scent is stronger when you first apply it, but it stays on your skin. When I use it to shave my underarms, I can go through out my day and get little whiffs of scent as I lift my arms or move about.

I hope Kama Sutra comes out with more products that smell this nice.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good
    • Strong smell


This shave creme stays in place, smells great, and leaves your skin soft and smooth. I found that this shave creme works well in and out of the shower. It can get a little runny if the shower it too steamy. And I use it more outside of the shower more often and just clean up with a damp cloth.

It seems to work better on legs and underarms. I didn't seem to get as close of a shave on my intimate areas and it left me with red bumps and ingrown hairs. It works nicely with both men and women's razors and won't leave them clogged up, needing to be rinsed after every swipe like some shaving products.

I did notice that you may end up using more of this than you would any other shaving product. It doesn't foam up, and too thin of a coating may leave you with razor burn. After you're done shaving, it leaves your skin feeling fresh and silky smooth. Washing with soap and water afterwards isn't necessary because it only washes away the moisturizers and lovely scent.
    • Absorbs into skin nicely
    • Wash off with a damp cloth


Kama Sutra Intimate Caress comes in a clear plastic bottle with a lotion style pump top. The label is just a clean sticker with the Kama Sutra logo, the scent, and some blurbs on the back in four different languages.

"Made with Aloe Vera and Joboba Seed Oil for smooth, sensual skin. This specially formulated cream gives your body the tender loving care it needs for personal shaving. Rich, moisturizing, and gently scented, it leaves your most sensitive skin silky, smooth and ready for love. Created for use anywhere on the body."

Directions: Wet skin with warm water, apply a thin layer, shave and rinse as normal.

The bottle is about 8 inches tall with the pump unlocked and 2 1/2 inches wide. It holds a generous 8.5 fluid ounces which should last anyone (except maybe werewolves) a long time.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua/Eau), Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Bromide, Colloidal Oatmeal, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avacado) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Panthenol, Sodium PCA, Dimethicone, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Steareth-21, Sorbic Acid, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance (Parfum)
    • Does not leak
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Would make a nice gift

Personal comments

It was a nice change of pace to use a shaving creme that didn't have HUGE WARNINGS all over the canister. My back up shave gel says:

"Caution/Attention! Container may explode if heated! Contents under pressure. Do not place in hot water or near radiators, stoves, or other sources of heat. Do not puncture or incinerate container or store at temperatures over 120°C. Keep out of reach of children."

That always makes me wonder, "Why do I keep using this stuff?"


I have to say that I really enjoyed using this mainly for the scent alone. It worked well on most areas of the body, except my pubes. Maybe it just wasn't thick enough? Maybe I'm more of a werewolf than I thought? For whatever reason, it leaves the rest of my underarms and legs soft, smooth, and sexy. My bikini area? Red bumps and annoying ingrown hairs.

I love using this for a quick shave on the days when I don't have time to hop in the shower. Just smooth some on, shave, and wipe off the extra with a damp washcloth. I'll probably buy more of this soon because I'm in love with honeysuckle. Kama Sutra needs to make more products with this scent!
Follow-up commentary
I have used about half of the bottle so far, and I still enjoy it. Not really for the product itself, but for the lovely honeysuckle fragrance. Once this bottle is gone, I don't think I'll be reordering it.
