extremely useful review


Max Shave Balls n All Sensitive shave cream is a specially formulated shaving product for men, manufactured by Classic Erotica. Balls n All is a "manscaping" lotion that is suitable for all areas of the body - genitals, face, legs wherever you like to be clean and smooth. The gel is made to help reduce shaving bumps and irritation and has ingredients to help even the coarsest hair come off easily and cleanly (sodium hydroxide - lye!).

nice pic

Balls n All is the same formula as Coochy Shave Creme which is a tried and true shaving product for women, also from Classic Erotica. The difference between the two being that Balls n All is made with the addition of pheromones to increase your appeal to the opposite sex. While this is formulated especially for men, women can use this cream with the same great results. The ingredient list could best be decoded by a chemistry major, but in comparing the ingredients in Balls n All to our household hair conditioner there wasn't anything out of the ordinary or unusual (pheromones excluded) and some of the ingredients were common to both products. Naturally the label cautions the user to discontinue use if any irritation occurs and to keep out of the reach of children. While not specifically stating the fact on the label, presumably this product is meant for external use only.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Max Shave Balls n All is a gel/cream product. A small drop placed on your finger will flow off very slowly. It is approximately the color and consistency of thick cum! Or maybe just hair conditioner. It feels very smooth and somewhat slippery between the fingers; clean feeling - not slimy or greasy at all. If massaged into the skin it is absorbed and leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft. When applied as a shave lotion (as a film or layer) it stays where you put it. The texture, consistency and "feel" are just what is wanted in a product designed to be used to shave sensitive areas.

Here is a photo to show the consistency - you see a dab level in my palm - little to no spreading and a dab on my fingers at a slant - still not much spreading. It stays put!

    • Smooth
    • Thick

Taste / Aroma

The smell of Max Shave Balls n All is difficult to describe. The product label states that it is unscented, meaning that no fragrance is added - no flower, or spice, or anything like that. While it is true that no scent is added there is an odor to the product - almost a musky scent, faint and not lingering. Perhaps this is the smell of the pheromones that are added to the product. It is a pleasant, clean scent and it is really very mild. The smell is far more subtle than any other shampoo, conditioner, or shave cream that is in our medicine cabinet right now. The aroma is strongest when fresh out of the bottle and completely gone when the product is rinsed off.

Taste? You let me know if you taste it - ecch! Seriously, this product is for external use and shouldn't be ingested in any way. Unless you regularly drink your shampoos, conditioners and other personal care products. Then you're on your own. Please don't tell me if you eat this. Really.
    • Light smell
    • Smells good


Balls n All goes balls to the wall! This shave cream went on very nicely - smooth and slick and it stayed put where it was put. There was no real lather to speak of, rather the cream formed a protective layer on my skin that helped the razor to glide effortlessly over VERY sensitive areas. It felt good on my skin when I applied it and it was nice and smooth during shaving. The shaving cream cleaned easily off of the razor during use and rinsed off cleanly from my skin when I was done. There was no irritation or "razor burn" whatsoever and this wasn't even using a fresh blade. My skin felt clean afterwards, I really couldn't tell any product was used at all - no conditioning effect or residue left. There were no downsides to this cream.

The ingredients in Balls n All are typical of many personal care products. This is not an organic product. For the sake of completeness in this review here is the list of ingredients via the magic of cut-and-paste:

Water (Eau), Cetyl Alcohol, Centrimonium Bromide, Stearyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Clyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, PEG-60 Lanolin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed OIl, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B), Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Copulandrone (Parfum), Copuline-alike (Parfum), Reconstituted Androne (Parfum) (From the EF product webpage)

There are some nice ingredients; jojoba seed oil to moisturize and condition skin, B vitamins for skin health, allantoin as a anti-inflammatory/anti irritant. There are no parabens, sugars or sulfates. Balls n All is not tested on any animals. Why rabbits would want their balls shaved is beyond the scope of this review.

The pheromones in the product (last three ingredients) have some references in available literature from people who study that sort of thing. There is some evidence that use of these compounds can increase sexual attractiveness of men to women and also claims of increased testosterone production in men who use these chemicals. The dose/amount of these pheromones in Balls n All is uncertain. Ingredients lists on the labels of products in the U.S. are in order of decreasing amount, so it IS known that these are the "rarest" ingredients in this cream. I'm not sure at what level the compounds work. Do they work in here? Beats me. I know I wasn't thronged by hordes of horny salivating women (except for the wife!), but I'm rather inattentive anyways, so maybe.

The tube of Balls n All is 2 fluid ounces and ordinarily sells for $7.99 from Eden Fantasys -see link here: Balls n All This seems a little pricey, but only a small amount is needed - I will report on how long the tube lasts. Really, though, if your balls aren't worth a few cents more, what is?


The packaging of Balls n All has good points and not so good points. A product whose base is the bottle cap is an excellent design. The material naturally flows to the bottom of the tube, so there is no need to fight to get the last of the cream out of the tube. It's already waiting for you there. I find that a flip top cap is easier to manipulate than a screw top, especially with wet hands. The spout is a little messy and there was some of the cream left on the cap after I had used it. If only manufacturers of these types of products would take a lesson from condiment packaging (think ketchup). Read my lips: "No drip top".


The instructions on the tube were uncomplicated. Wet area, apply cream. Shave. Rinse. No surprises there. The tube itself is very attractive and looks exactly like a higher end skin care product. You could almost leave this one laying around in the bathroom in sight of kids and in-laws. Almost. It does say "Balls n All" right on the label in small tasteful print. In a basket with 20 other tubes, bottles and ointments this disappears. By itself on the sink...

You could certainly toss this in an airline carry on bag (only 2 fl.oz.) without attracting any attention.
    • Can be opened with one hand
    • Easy to use / dispense
    • Travel friendly

Special Features

And now, for all you kids who read everything on the back of the cereal box, here is a listing of the ingredients (from the EF webpage) and my best web-researched guess as to what they are/do:
(Feel free to skip this section if you want)

Water (Eau) - you know this one!
Cetyl Alcohol - A type of alcohol used to thicken, lubricate and opacify cosmetics.
Centrimonium Bromide - Antiseptic and surfactant, common in hair conditioner.
Stearyl Alcohol - Emollient, emulsifier, and thickener, used to coat hair.
Hydroxyethylcellulose - Thickening agent. Still with me, there will be a test at the end.
Clyceryl Stearate - (this may be a misspelling and should probably be "Glyceryl") Lubricant and
PEG-100 Stearate - Surfactant and cleansing agent.
PEG-60 Lanolin - Hair and skin conditioners; surfactant and emollient.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed OIl - Hair/skin conditioner.
Hydrolyzed Keratin - From sheep's wool; used as a moisturizer.
Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B)- Safe and non-irritating hair conditioner that penetrates well.
Allantoin - Anti-irritant, promotes wound healing.
Phenoxyethanol - Bactericide and preservative.
Sorbic Acid - Only other compound known to affect Superman. I'm lying, it's a preservative.
Sodium Hydroxide - Control pH, soften hair.
Copulandrone (Parfum), Copuline-alike (Parfum), Reconstituted Androne (Parfum) - These are the
pheromone products that may have certain effects on libido and attraction. Your
mileage may vary.

Wow! But Mike, I just wanna shave my balls! Don't complain to me, I told you you could skip this part. Here are several of the highly informative web sites I gathered this info from:

Personal comments

Ok, I know, if you've read this far you're probably asking something like, "Well, Mike, this is all good and well, but how did it work on your balls?". I'm glad you asked. This is my first venture into pubic area shaving, being motivated by seeing this product and reading the tag lines that said "Shaving of male pubic area increases sexual sensitivity" and "The cleaner you are…the bigger you look". Who doesn't want that, right?

I have a full thatch down there and tackling this with a razor would be horrible, so I used a hair trimmer first to get the hair down to about 1/4" long - far more manageable with a razor. Hair from the shaft of my cock, balls (careful!) and a small area on my pubic bone was trimmed. I'm easily aroused by anything of a sexual nature and naturally (for me) by this time I already had a raging hard on! I like to shower before I shave my face to help soften the hair, so I showered figuring this would help here too. After toweling off I took to task at hand, staying in the tub to make cleanup easier. I applied the Balls n All shave cream to the area. It felt very nice going on and I massaged it in a little to work the cream into the hair. Erection returns! I took my trusty five bladed razor (how many blades IS enough?) and set to shaving. The first few strokes were tentative as cuts here would be very unpleasant! To my happy surprise the shave cream did a great job of lubricating my skin and softening up the hair. The razor really flowed over my skin effortlessly and shaved cleanly with very little pressure. The hard on helped at this point to keep the skin taut and around my scrotum where the skin was looser I stretched it slightly taut to make for an easier shave. I was amazed at how easily shaving this area was accomplished - it was nothing to be afraid of! After less than three minutes without any discomfort, pain, or bleeding I was turning on the shower to rinse off. My balls were smooth!! Everything was smooth - this was great!

As I write this it has been two days since my initial shaving and I have experienced no itching whatsoever. Hair regrowth has been slow and in fact (I'm feeling right now!) there really is no stubble to speak of. I plan to continue using this regularly and will update this review about how long the tube lasted and how the shaving experience goes for me.

As for the claims made by the ad copy, they were right. I have far more feeling in my balls and pubic area than with hair and it feels really nice. My cock does look bigger also, but my wife is the only one who sees it and she already knows how big it is.

To get a full appreciation for this shave cream I also used it to shave my face. Same great results - went on smooth, shaved smooth, no irritation or nicking. I also asked my wife to use it to shave her legs (she usually uses conditioner) and she found the Balls n All to be just as pleasant to use - she really liked the smell. Maybe it is the pheromones. Perhaps she can be talked into shaving her pussy after seeing my great results, she seemed interested!
Follow-up commentary
Ok, I'm new to pubic area/scrotum shaving, but I've become a convert! So, now I shave every two or three days to keep nice and smooth. In the interest of this review I have tried other shaving creams along with this. Here are the results:

a) Regular shave cream - Just awful. Lots of nicks ("Ow!...what the F***!).
b) Hair conditioner - Worked alright. The shave didn't seem as close.
c) Max Shave - I'm a believer. Even if it is more expensive, you don't need to use much, the shave is far more comfortable and the cut seems closer without nicking.

I'll say it again - if your balls aren't worth a few more pennies, then what is!

(The cap is still a little messy, but I really feel nitpicky mentioning it.)
