I will be the first to admit that I am a taker of short cuts and a definite beauty minimalist. If I don’t absolutely need it? I won’t use it. Why? Because I’m busy…and if I’m super honest, a little bit lazy when it comes to such things. I love 2-in-1 products or anything that can do double duty.
Because of my aversion to product excess, I have long omitted shaving cream from my beauty routine. My skin isn’t very sensitive and as such I can totally dry shave in the middle of summer without consequence if I so choose. As you can imagine, when I was sent this Kiss My Face Shaving Moisture Shave to try I figured it would sit in my bathroom cupboard or a very long time (i.e. forever).
But, one night a few weeks ago I was having a little “me time” complete with mud mask and I decided to try out this moisture shave business. And now that I have? Well, let’s just say I’m a convert.
I always hated shaving cream with all it’s foamy weirdness that left my legs feeling sticky. This stuff leaves my legs feeling baby soft (oh man. I just sounded so much like a commercial.) and the green tea and bamboo scent is just ever so slightly hippie-ish in the best of all ways (although I secretly want to try the super hippie patchouli version). Also, it’s all-natural without all the chemicals you’ll find in most other shaving creams and beauty products in general which is something that is definitely important to me.
Overall verdit: Kiss My Face Moisture Shave is a win and I just might give up my dry shaving days forever…or at least until I have a day when I’m feeling particularly lazy.
