I am accustomed to cream shaves, so my perspective may differ from many of the other reviewers'. Yes, this (and other cream shaves) clogs/dulls your razor faster than shave gels or foams. However, I feel it gives a better shave - not necessarily closer, but one that is free of nicks and cuts and bumps. I also find that it is moisturizing. I also think that users who say it requires a lot of product may be using too much - don't expect the frothy, totally-coated-in-white legs you are used to from a gel/foam. It is more similar to using conditioner to shave (which I also do pretty regularly, as I find it is gentle and moisturizing). A thin layer will do. I like the vanilla smell, which is a bit strong but doesn't linger. The packaging is nice - ergonomic, doesn't rust and get gross in the shower like cans do, and the pump is convenient; however I feel like it's bulkier than it needs to be. A tube would allow me to get all the product out and do so with less packaging. Overall, not my favorite cream shave (Alba retains that spot), but probably top 2 or 3.

I used to think the culprit for my clogged razors was my antiperspirant, but since switching to using creamy body washes as shave lotions, I realized that it was this eos shave product causing me to throw out so many razors after just two or three uses. Yes, this gave me softer, smoother legs and MUCH fewer nicks than some other shave gels/lotions, but I needed to use much more product to get a good shave, so a bottle only lasted me four shaves, max. The combined cost of all the lotion bottles and razor cartridges was just too expensive to be worth it.

I basically buy this because of the scent and the packaging is better for the environment than a shave gel. Like others have said you need a lot of product. And it's not overly moisturizing despite what it claims. I personally feel I get a closer shave with a shave gel that turns to thick, creamy foam like Skintimate and the Target knockoff of Skintimate. Using this product is one step up over using hair conditioner (like magazines say to do if you have no shaving cream available).

I saw this in Walgreens one day and picked it up since I am a fan of EOS and vanilla. Normally I don't really use a shaving cream so I figured it would be a good idea to invest in one and try it out. This product says you can shave wet or dry, which I found would be perfect for me since sometimes in a pinch I have to shave really quick and don't have time to wet my legs etc. Overall I haven't found anything really serious to complain about. It works very nice and leaves my skin feeling smooth and I haven't got nicks or razor bumps. (Which normally I get all the time) Even when I shave dry it does a good job, although I still think its better to shave wet. The scent is a decent vanilla smell. However it goes on more like a lotion then as a foam and that does bother me since I find myself having to apply more then I need. Overall a pretty ok product and I will probably repurchase.

This product just didn't do it for me. I had to put alot more cream than the directions claims which its very time consuming, it clogs your razor so much that it doesnt performed a smooth shave. I still had some hair on my legs after I got out of the shower. the pump is rather annoying, the smell is nice, which that's the only plus. I'll use this all up but after that I'm never going to buy this again.

I'm not sure how I feel about this product. I bought it because I like the eos brand, but it didn't crazily impress me or anything. It leaves my legs pretty soft afterward, but I still need lotion after. Also, it doesn't lather (not supposed to) so that's kind of different. And, this may be just a personal problem, but it kind of burns my legs and makes my legs have red reaction bumps for a couple hours after. I don't usually react to shaving creams, but to this one I did. I've tried the lavender one too and I think I like the lavender better. It's not anything to be crazy about.

Didn't do what it claimed. My skin felt dry afterwards. I used it on dry skin & wet. My skin hurt after using it w/o water. And with water my skin didn't feel moisturized. Wouldn't repurchase. It's like a thin cream lotion. Not moisturizing at all.

I love this product. I get horrible razor burn when I shave and when I switched to using this product - no more razor burn. It doesn't lather and is like a lotion, which is just what I want. It smells like Bath and Body Work's warm vanilla sugar.

This product smells like heaven but I found it didn't lather and it was like shaving with a lotion which isn't very desirable. And I figured it'd be very moisturizing but I didn't really find it was. I don't really remember how much it cost, around $4 I think. Id stick to normal shaving cream.

I am not a fan of this shave cream at all. First of all, I guess this is my own fault but I didn't realise it was a non-foaming product until I read it on the back. Which I really should've guessed since it is a cream and not a gel, but anyway I am not a fan of shaving products that don't foam. I personally believe I get a closer shave when it foams up and rarely ever get nicks or bumps. So that was the first reason it was a let down for me, because I found it took me longer to shave and didn't get all the hairs like I expected it to.
Secondly, I really hate the pump on the bottle. Maybe I've just got a dodgy batch, but it is so hard to get the product out! I was there pumping for at least five mins on each leg just to get a decent size amount to cover the entire leg! It really was laughable. I had to make do with quite a small amount and I don't particularly enjoy shaving at the best of times never mind it taking twice as long using this product.
I think the only positives I can draw from this is that I really enjoy the fragrance, the vanilla smell is subtle and not overwhelming, as well as not being that plastic, fake vanilla you get with some products. Also, it is a very moisturising and softening product, which you don't usually get with other shaving products.
Overall, I wouldn't buy this product again because I don't like the fact it applies like a moisturiser and clogs up my razor, and the pump is very annoying.
