The smell is really yummy and addicting! i wish that other products would have this very, exact scent. I find the consistecy quite thick and lovely to shave with. Its like a body butter that the skin dosen't absorb. Whereas other shaving creams i've tried felt drying and even harsh sometimes. I give the smell alone 5 lippies.

I'm not typically a user of shaving creme at all, but i was in the razor aisle and the packaging drew my attention. I LOVE how its a plastic bottle... easy to recycle, and it looks pretty sitting in my shower. However, the creme is a little thin and takes a good amount to get over my legs. The scent is not really vanilla, but more shea butter. I enjoy this product and with the low price tag i will purchase again in the future!

This stuff sucks. Its a very thin cream that does not cushion your skin at all while shaving, and rinses away with the tiniest bit of water, before you even shave! I have to use 4 pumps for just half a leg! I've had it two weeks and the bottle is already half gone, and I only shave twice a week! I don't use cheap razors, and since using this product I've had more razor burns and nicks than even the cheapest shaving cream you can buy at Target. (And yes, I always shave with a cream not a foam) It's also not moisturizing at all, leaving my legs extra dry afterwards.
Only good thing I have to say is that the packaging is nice, and pump works well.
Just say no!

Let me start by saying I usually shave with oil, so I'm used to not having a foaming product. (I can see how this would be annoying if you like a thick lather.) I bought this on a whim since it was on sale at my local supermarket, and I must say it's pretty nice. My legs are very smooth, the scent is a fairly natural vanilla and there's enough shea butter in it that I can actually smell it. The thing to remember about a creme like this is it doesn't behave like a foam and shouldn't be applied as such. Lather this on wet skin until you have a slippery, milky surface. You should be able to see the hairs through the creme. Another thing that helps with this (As with oil) is to shave with small, short strokes, rinsing the razor frequently. I haven't experienced any razor burn with this product, even around the bikini area and that's a huge plus in my book. It is a bit more expensive than the regular foams, but it is also made with good ingredients, comes in a container that won't leave rust rings (And uses recycled plastic!), and goes on sale regularly. I'll probably still use oil as my main shaving medium, but this will be a great addition for sensitive areas and when extra moisturizing is needed.

I am a soap and water shaver. This product is no better than a good moisturizing liquid soap, and it gets "chunky" on the leg.

I like the plastic bottle that doesn't rust in the shower, and I like the pump which only requires one hand for dispensing, and it works fine as a shaving cream, but what I do not like is the smell. It doesn't smell like vanilla at all to me. It's artificial and unpleasant. And it's a little overpriced. I'd much rather use Barbisol Raspberry which is about a dollar, but that smells much nicer.

It seems like this product takes some practice, but in the end it's the best shave cream I've tried. When I first bought it, I used it with my usual double blade razor. It clogged the blade within a few strokes and seemed so ineffective. So I decided this would just be my backup.
Low and behold, a few weeks later all I have is the eos shave cream and my cheap single blade BIC razors. But it worked! My legs and bikini area have never been smoother then with this combination. Apparently this just works well with single blade razors, which is great because that combination is so cheap!
Other bonuses include the amazing scents, the recycled plastic packaging (no more rust!), and the convenient pump style. I highly recommend trying this shave cream if you have sensitive skin like mine.

Okay so i know this product got a lot of bad reviews but i decided to try anyways, mostly because it was vanilla. and its pretty much the best one ive ever used. it smells delicious, made my legs softer than EVER, and it moisturizes realllly well. i still use lotion after, but one day it was quick and they were just as soft without lotion. will for sure re-purchase. but a warning for any sensitive legs person like me, dont use BIC razors they give you cuts from hell, id stick with venus or even a store brand, or schick, just whatever besides bic!

Horrible product. I was hoping for a shaving cream that would moisturize my legs so I can shave with minimum irritation, but this was so thick and greasy that it actually created more friction during my shave. It's much more pricey than your usual shave gel/foam, and it leaves a disgusting greasy rim in my tub. I have to rinse off the razor after every few swipes, and then wash myself with soap again after using this to get all the grime off, and that's just more time in my shower routine that I don't have to spare. The entire bottle lasted me about 5 uses, if that.

As shaving creams go, this one is probably the most moisturizing one I have used. I love the scent; I love the shape of the bottle. I do not like the pump (doesn't get the last 1/4 of product out = have to unscrew top and pound it out.) My legs are less irritated post-shaving than w/ other shaving creams.
That said - it works as well as any deep hair conditioner I have lying around (and I always have some from the boxes of haircolor I use) so I would not repurchase.

I have only tried it with a wet shave(never shaved dry and too scared to even try!). My boyfriend now uses this to shave his face and he likes it as well...its moisturizing, I never get razor burn when I use this product, and it doesn't irritate my skin with over done fragrances. The packaging is awesome and a little easier to grip when in the shower vs. a metal can. Overall I think this is a great product..it is a couple bucks more than regular shaving cream but I honestly believe that its worth it. I think I am going to try the raspberry scent next.
*** I also love the fact that there is no animal testing!***

I decided to give this product a try because my beloved Aveeno Shave Minimizing gel is getting more and more difficult to find. I really don't know why, because it's such an excellent product, albeit a little pricey.
I'll start with the positives.
The packaging is absolutely FABULOUS. I LOVE the plastic bottle, I LOVE the pump dispenser. I don't know why conventional shaving cream has to come in a can, perhaps something to do with pressurization. But I really hate those cans. This bottle is easy to grip with wet or soapy hands, doesn't leave a ring, and dispenses neatly without a lot of waste.
The smell is delicious and seems to linger quite a while after I've bathed.
Now for the negatives; I'm afraid there are enough of them that I will not repurchase this product.
The thing I hate the most about it is the fact that it doesn't dissovle in the bathwater and leaves clumps of product in my bathtub that I have to wipe out immediately or they become stubborn gluey globs around the perimeter of my tub. This may not be of concern for someone who shaves in the shower. But my shower stall is so tiny that I would drown if I tried to shave in it, so I always shave in the tub. Therefore, this is a huge issue for me.
I suppose I could get past that if this was an incredible product, but it's just not. It isn't as moisturizing as cheaper shaving products and I don't notice that it provides a discernibly closer shave. That's probably because it's very, very thin and no matter how much product you use, you can't really build up a good layer of product on your skin. I guess I'm just used to conventional shaving products, but this cream formulation did not impress me at all.
Not the worst of the worst, but if I'm going to spend more, I expect better performance. Big thumbs up on the packaging, but thumbs down on the product within.

I want to love this stuff. If it came in a can, I'd probably buy it over and over. The pump doesn't get all the product out and it doesn't last long since I needed well over 10 pumps to cover my legs. This stuff isn't thick and it doesn't foam up. It didn't seem to get as close of a shave as regular shaving cream either. The only plus to this the way it is is the smell. LOVE the smell. :)

I was supposed to buy another razor last night, and I completely forgot. This morning I woke up to shower before my hair appointment when upon lathering up my legs, I realized I had nothing to shave with. Time was of the essence so I hopped out and went to my hair appointment, but I didn't want to shower again and let the humidity ruin my hair.
I bought the eos cream as I have been wanting to try it and let me tell you it's wonderful! :) I shaved dry and used hot water to rinse the razor in between swipes, which took me some time, but it was worth the results. The first thing I went for was the gold and shaved my entire bikini area - no bumps! I shaved my underarms and then my legs too. My skin is so soft from the shea butter in the product that I didn't need to moisturize! There's no need to rinse and I guess the combination of the hot blade and cream gave me barber shop results. My bikini area is smooth as ever and I smell wonderful. I don't normally like vanilla, but this complements my Viva la Juicy perfume very well.
Took a star off because you have to use a lot of product and it's time consuming. If you don't rinse between swipes (of course) the razor will get clogged. I use a Schick Quattro for Women so stubble is -never- a problem.

This product smells really good (like BBW's Warm Vanilla Sugar), but overall I found it useless. I agree with other reviewers that it takes an awful lot of product to cover your legs. It has the consistency of a lotion, with no lather and no slip. It didn't seem to help with shaving, either--I have better luck and a smoother shave with Dove bar soap. And after all that, I still had to use my regular moisturizer when I got out of the shower! Bah.

I don't get the hype about this product. I found I wasted a lot of product trying to get the cream to actually cover and stay on my legs, which in turn, wasted more time. It's hard to apply this product, especially compared with the ease of the foaming gel shave products (like skintimate).
The razor DID clog, preventing a consistent close shave (lots of leftover stubble!!). My legs did feel smooth and looked glowy, but that only lasted a couple of hours. Now (next morning) they feel stubbly and blah.
Definately would not repurchase.
Packaging is really cute & modern though!!

Love, love, love the smell of this stuff. It actually sort of reminds me of the smell of Flowerbomb, and has a beautiful, creamy consistency and makes my legs feel totally amazing.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Grey Eyes: Blue
The pump is nice, but the product sucks. It's not moisturizing and I cut my legs up which I don't usually do when I use the skintimate stuff. The cream is really thick if you try to use it on dry legs and it's kind of runny on wet legs.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Dry, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
The scent of this is divine, and I usually hate vanilla scents. I find the pump extremely convenient. The package says it can be used wet or dry, but when I tried to use it dry, the cream was too thick and just clogged my razor. When using in the shower, however, the cream turns milky and helps the razor glide over my skin without clogging the razor at all. It makes my skin feel exceptionally soft after shaving, and I don't even feel the need to use a moisturizer afterward. I will definitely repurchase.
