I was hopeful that summer was on it’s way, and then today, April 24th, we have snow, sleet and hail! Oh when, on when will we see spring? While I have had no reason to shave my legs while here in Canada for the past month, I did spend some time in Cuba and was able to use the Skintimate Shave Gel a number of times in the two weeks we were there. While I may not have looked like one…. my legs most certainly felt like model material with the silky smoothness. I did notice after shaving really quickly that it’s important to make sure all the gel is washed off or it can leave a white residue on your legs. Not the look I was going for while
tanning running after the kids.
So, you all know what I think of the gel (and if you don’t know you can check my thoughts on the Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel). I still think I’d like more of a BURST of mandarin, but the smell has no impact on how well it works.
But more importantly, here’s what you think:
Diane G. Calgary, AB – I love citrus scents and so as soon as I heard about this new product I was excited to try it. One of the first things I noticed was the ridges in the cap. If you have ever tried to take a smooth top off a container in the shower you will know what I mean. If your hands are arthritic you will really know. The little ridges really made it easy to take off even with wet hands.
I put the shave gel in my hand and noticed a light and refreshing citrus scent. I found it very pleasant and knew the smell would not overpower the scent I would wear like some products do. As I applied it that gel turned into a smooth cream. It made the blade of my razor glide over my skin and gave what seemed to be a smooth shave. Once I rinsed it off, my skin felt smooth and silky and there were no nicks or razor burns.
My ultimate test of a good shave is when I get into bed. I love that smooth shave feeling you get on your legs as you slip into the sheets. I am happy to report Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel passed with an A+
I will definitely buy this product next time I need shaving gel if it is available.
Debbie W. Hamilton, ON – Thank you for allowing me to review Skintimate Signature Scents Mandarin Burst shave gel. Initially I found myself a little too generous with the application and the shave was not as close, and the lather was a little sticky. After trying again, using only approximately a dime size amount, and rubbing it and applying to my legs, the shave was close and smooth. My underarms received the same result. The scent is not over powering, but a nice tropical tangerine scent lingered. It rinses easily leaving my skin smooth, and a light citrus smell lingered.
It provided a nice close shave and very pleased with the results.
Monica B. Abbotsford, BC – I’ve been really impressed with this shave gel! As someone with sensitive skin, I’m prone to razor burn and irritation.. So shaving my legs isn’t usually a task I enjoy. This shave gel took me by surprise – the scent is so fresh and citrusy, and is so perfect for spring and summer. I found it lathered well and it contains 6 moisturizers including olive butter and vitamin E. My skin has been noticeably more smooth and soft, and it helps provide a close shave. My skin feels moisturized and I honestly have almost no irritation!! Once I am out, I plan to get this product again, it’s the best shave gel I have ever used.
Jaimee M. Windsor, ON – I recently reviewed the Skintimate Signature Scents Mandarin Burst Shave Gel. LOVED IT. To test this shave gel out I let my leg hair grow, and bought a new razor, this product couldn’t of arrived at a better time, considering the warmer weather, and its now getting into short/skirt season! This had to be one of my better shaving experiences. The scent wasn’t too overpowering, and I actually liked it quite a bit. It reminded me of the tanning lotion I use regularly.
I had to get a little used to using the shaving cream, it’s been a while since I used a foaming kind, and I had sprayed out what I thought was a decent amount, only for it to begin expanding like crazy when applying it! Not bad, a little goes quite a long way, thats always a plus. After applying a layer onto my legs and shaving, and finishing my shower, my legs came out feeling silky smooth! I couldnt believe how smooth they actually felt, and kept touching my legs.
After trying this out, I can definitely say it’s worth the buy, light scent, good coverage, and leaves you smooth. Awesome. 🙂
Wendy H. Drayton Valley, AB – This is the first time I have tried Skintimate products. I love this shave gel, you don’t need a lot of it to cover you legs, one little squirt does the job. It lathers up real fast and feels so creamy and silky. My legs after shaving feel feel so soft and silky. I usually have extremely dry skin patches on my leg but after using Skintimate they are not as visible as before. The fragrance is wonderful. My son even had to squirt some on his hands and he was amazed and how it lathered up by rubbing his hands together. I was real skeptable when I first squirted it into my hand as it was gel like and I wondered how this would shave my legs, but after rubbing it on my legs it lathered up so quickly.
My legs were hairier than they’d ever been.
Skintimate Mandarin Burst arrived in the mail
To rescue my legs from their gross, hairy veil.
When I pressed the nozzle I was instantly pleased
With the scent of lemons, limes and oranges freshly squeezed.
The foamy coverage was supreme,
It truly made shaving a blissful dream.
So little product went such a long way,
It’s definitely a shave gel I’ll purchase some day.
It left my legs smooth and moisturized, too.
Skintimate Mandarin Burst, I’m impressed by you!
There you have it, the over all consensus is that it’s a good shaving cream and I agree. Thank you to all the reviewers as promised, the reviewers were entered into a draw and the lucky winner is Julie G. Clinton, ON.
I hope we will all be able to show off those shaved legs soon, lets get the sun shining and put the snow away until the fall… I mean next winter… I mean… forever!
