Ultra moisturizing shave cream

Shaving foam by Evolution of Smooth

Mixed feelings for a while...skipped it in the end.

Ultimately, I switched back to soap, despite the nominally-increased moisturizing effects. I need something that rinses clean from my razor.
Moisturizing, smells nice, handy bottle design
Clogs razor

useful review
I initially gravitated toward this shave cream because it was different, and it stood out from the crowd of other shave creams. It has a cute, interestingly-shaped bottle with a great shape and texture that prevents dropping so you don't lose a foot in the shower (I'm rather attached to my feet and would like to keep them, thanks). It smells awesome, boasts natural ingredients and no parabens, and specifies that you can use it wet or dry. Sign me up, right? Well...

First, the positives. It really is moisturizing from the get-go - it goes on more like a thick lotion than most shave creams/gels. It's not foamy and it stays where you put it. It even makes my skin feel noticeably softer post-shower, which saves me an extra lotion application later. It smells lovely and I like that it has more natural ingredients - I'm always in favor of more of that. I like the convenient one-handed pump top, and the pretty, soft colors of the bottles, and the different, minimalist design.

But my main problem with this stuff is that it clogs my razor like none other. Even if I rinse the thing after every pass, it still remains totally clogged with cream. It just will not come out. I use a Schick Quattro for Women, mind you, which has four blades. So if your razor has fewer, you might not have this problem. But I've found that for me, it's just easier to use moisturizing soap than this stuff, because I was having to change blades so often because it just wouldn't wash out. I never tried shaving with it dry, as it says you can do, but I imagine the problem would be even worse then. I'd rather have something clean-rinsing and then have to put on lotion later, than have to keep buying expensive blades more often because of my shave cream. Sorry, Eos, but it just isn't going to work out.
Follow-up commentary
I'm still pretty happy with using soap or hair conditioner to shave my legs. Occasionally I will buy a bottle of Skintimate or something, but this stuff clogs my razor so badly I just don't even bother with it anymore. It's more expensive and still terrible.

    Thanks for sharing. I so hate that this clogs razors. That's a huge pet peeve of mine. Thanks for the warning. I'll pass on this cream. I must say, the Max total body shave for men is like a dream come true! Even for ladies!

    I really wanted to like this one, is the sad thing. Glad my review could help you! And thanks for the recommendation! I've found that lately I'm skipping shave cream altogether as an extra purchase and just using my goat milk bar soap or hair conditioner.

    I was really interested in this but honestly I'd rather just use hair conditioner. I like gels better too. I'm gonna pass on this one. Thanks for the info.

    I also prefer Skintimate, in every way, to this eos shave cream.
