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

Honeysuckle - bare it all

Intimate Caress makes for a great shaving experience and may live up to its standards of no irritation. It doesn't cause a negative reaction for most people. I love the smell and texture that meshes well with my shower routine.
Pleasant scent.
Doesn't clog razor.
Thin foam.
Didn't work for my pubes.

extremely useful review
This shaving cream is fairly thin but useful and lives up to its name. It moisturizes well while you shave, but you will use quite a bit and reapply often to finish all of your shaving. The honeysuckle scent lulled me to a calm while I smoothed myself, running the razor over my delicate skin. Intimate Caress does not clog up my razor at all. Rinsing off the blades was easy and quick. The claim, however, that it helps with razor burn and irritation is only slightly true. It smells extremely good though. I love the soft scent that lingers only a while after rinsing. It blends well with almost all of my other shower gels and washes. The smell is feminine and not overpowering. The cream is also available in pomegranate and pineapple/coconut (pina colada). I didn't taste it for a change. Most flowery smelling things don't taste very pleasant, so I bow out of that little experiment. If it worked better for pubic hair shaving I would own all three scents.

The bottle is classy and simple. The plastic bottle and plastic style distribution is easy to use in the shower and won't rust. It's as easy as using a soap bottle. I have it among my other shower products and it fits in well. There is no obscene picture or writing on the bottle, so I'd feel comfortable taking this with me for travel to a home as a guest or to a hotel. It is not suggested for plane travel as it is not small and may leak under pressure.

The shaving cream is water based. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. I can be quite sensitive to perfumes and shower gels, and this one was my good friend. No reaction! Ingredients are (listed from the bottle): 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)
When shaving the back of my legs and underarms, it worked great! The problem came to shaving my labia and mons. While I didn't react to the actual cream, it wasn't thick enough or conditioning enough to cut back on residual irritation from shaving. I still had several ingrown hairs and lots of angry bumps. Now maybe my hair is just thicker and tougher than other ladies’, but I found that men’s face shaving gel works better for pubic hair than this cream.

Despite my disappointment in its public performance, I love this shave cream and will likely order another scent. I use it after shaving for some extra moisture and a pleasant scent when I am done smoothing down with another product. Every few days I use this cream for shaving my underarms, happy trail (damn my excess testosterone and red hair in this case), and legs.

My husband refuses to use it as facial shave cream because it doesn't smell manly. His loss. Some men may like one of the other scents if they aren't into honeysuckle.

I am left smooth and moisturized after shaving with Intimate Caress. I would highly recommend it as a treat for your senses while shaving.
Follow-up commentary
I still really love this for shaving my legs and underarms. It still isn't my first choice for pubic shaving. The smell (even with morning sickness) is amazing. The moisturizing quality is great and means I don't have to use as much lotion after shaving. I wish this company made a moisturizing lotion in the same scent to keep smelling so good after a shave.
