Review of eShave White Tea After Shave Cream with Shea Butter

eshaveaftershave.jpgOK, so yesterday we shaved with eShave's White Tea Shave Cream. Today we're finishing things up with eShave's White Tea After Shave Cream with Shea Butter.

Packed with moisturizing natural ingredients and antioxidant vitamins A and E, eShave After Shave Creams are the essential final step toward silky skin. Shea butter, aloe vera and comfrey extracts make eShave After Shave Creams an ideal post-shave. The highly concentrated formula penetrates easily, leaving skin toned, moist and soft.

I will attest to the accuracy of the "packed" and "high concentrated" claims. This after shave cream is almost syrupy. You definitely don't want to put too much on, or it'll have a tough time absorbing into your face. Details for Men recommends "a dime size amount", and I agree. For all you non-US readers, a dime is our smallest coin (even though a penny and a nickel are worth less. Doesn't make any sense) Anyway, start out using far less of eShave's after shave than you think. It actually works really well, but you'll have a tough time getting your skin to absorb more than a little bit.

Also, it smells great. Mmm... white tea.

eShave's White Tea After Shave Cream with Shea Butter is $22 for a 4 oz tub.

Review of eShave's White Tea Shave Cream

eshavewhiteteashave.jpegIt's review time! And it's about time. Got a shipment of eShave products in from our friends over at Details for Men back in April, and we're only now finally getting to them. Shave on us.

First up - eShave's White Tea Shave Cream. Mmm... white tea. This has got to be one of my favorite scents on earth. In fact if you haven't checked out Urth products, they're full of white tea and worth a look. But today we're talking about eShave.

eShave's White Tea Shave Cream is a light, almost fluffy/whipped shaving cream which is best applied with a brush. Place a small dab in the bristles of your brush, hold the tip of the brush under hot water for a few seconds, and then apply to your pre-moistened face. You'll be amazed at how little shaving cream you need to get a nice lather.

Sadly, I felt that the lather ultimately didn't protect my face against the evils of five razor-sharp blades. Perhaps it needed a little extra oil to act more as a lubricant, or maybe it works much better with eShave's Pre-Shave Oil as a base. I'm no chemist, so frankly I don't know what it needs. All I can say is that I was a little underwhelmed at eShave's ability to protect my face against nicks and cuts. (Luckily I had my new Nick Stick from Pacific Shaving Company, but more on that in another post.)

The shave with eShave was decent, although it wasn't the best at lifting up my whiskers. I often found myself reapplying shaving cream for a second pass over a particularly tricky section of skin. Not a huge deal in my book, but I've used shaving creams that have done better on the first pass.

Overall I wasn't that enthusiastic about eShave's shaving cream. Perhaps expectations were too high at the start. I was so excited by the white tea that I built up eShave to be the perfect shave before the first stroke. Anyway, we've had people write in and tell us how much they love it, so it may work great for you.

eShave's White Tea Shave Cream is $20 for a 4 oz tub.

This Just In - eShave

eshavewhiteteashave.jpegOur friends over at Details for Men just sent over two products from eShave - eShave White Tea Shave Cream ($20), and eShave White Tea After Shave Cream with Shea Butter ($22). Mmmm... white tea... One of my favorite scents.

eShave, or êShave, as they are actually called, was founded by Danielle Malka.

Danielle successfully marketed European brands in the prestige market. In the early 90's, Danielle changed the way the world thinks and talks about shaving. By introducing the concept of education to barbers in the U.K., and then passing their trade tips onto consumers, she developed a reputation for herself as the premier shaving expert.

That's better than my credentials - shaves a lots/writes about shaving a lot.

eShave has a full line of men's and women's shaving supplies, including hand-sculpted razors, stands, and brush handles.

To this day, ê Shave is the only company that hand-sculpts its own fashionable, modern, artistic designs to appeal to the tastes of aesthetically discriminating and design conscious women and men.

In fact, this month is Shaving Brush Month. Get a free one ounce shaving cream when you purchase a shaving brush from eShave. And if you really want to jazz up your bathroom, snag one of these slick and modern shave stands. This isn't your father's Oldsmobile shaving stand.

We'll be putting eShave to the ShavingStuff test, so stay tuned for our review.
