Skintimate Cream Shave [Not a Gel] Review

Hello Ladies! I know I said I was moving out of the beauty products world and into just doing a regular blog but I couldn't help but give a review on this. Most of the reviews I've read are negative. People seem to really hate this cream because it's that, a cream, not a gel. Well I'm here to set you all straight! 

Skintimate Cream Shave:
I picked this bottle up for FREE at CVS by using a $1 off manufacturer's coupon and a $1 off CVS coupon. Score! 

This was my first time using a "cream" shave product. I've always stuck with just the gel ones because....well, I don't know. HaHa!

Anyway, This smells exactly like flower petals. I'm not sure I'd say I loved the smell but it was better than a full on rose garden which I know some shave gels do smell like that. I'm more of a passion fruit or candy smelling product type of girl.

Most people complained about this product being more of a lotion form than a shaving product. I don't fully agree with that. It comes out of the container like a lotion but when you spread it on your legs, arms or underarms, it's more of a satiny smooth cream rather than a lotion that pretty much goes on and doesn't hardly wipe off.

I personally didn't see anything wrong with this shave cream. It doesn't lather up like that of the gel form but it does spread really nicely and you don't have to use a ton.

I did hear a lot of people complaining about getting more nicks and cuts with this over the gel form. I didn't seem to have a problem using this cream. I have no nicks or cuts and it did make my legs really soft afterwards due to the vitamin E and soy.

 Would I buy this product again? I probably would, as long as there was another scent I could get. This scent does leave a nice, clean smell on you but like I said above....I <3 candy and fruity smells over flowery smells.

I don't see why I wouldn't buy this product again. The negative reviews on this didn't really pop up when I was using it. Therefore, I see no reason in why someone else couldn't fall in love with this shave cream. If you're out and about and need a new shave cream, try this one and let me know what your opinions are, you might just like it too!


I'd have to say that I actually like the packaging. It has a cut flower pop-open opening and it's made entirely of plastic.

Sometimes I don't like the can ones because if they fall on your feet, it hurts! This will still hurt but not as much! Big perk!

 Product [Texture]:

The cream comes out of the tube nicely and the consistency is that of a lotion. However, less thick.

The overall texture of this cream is smooth. I know some creams kind of have a rougher texture to them, this one does not. It's smooth all the way through!
The End:

Overall, this is a great product. Others may think differently than I do but in the end, it's all based on what you, the consumer, thinks!

No one can tell you "oh hey, that product sucks" because in the end it could have sucked for them and it could be the best thing ever for you. Each one of us is different and we are affected differently by different products. I hope you all enjoyed my review. Let me know if you've used this product and also what you think about this product!
