Review: EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream - Vanilla Bliss - 7 oz
$3.49, Target
I have A LOT of reviews to catch up on. I also have a lot of books to read (Cuckoo's Calling, American Gods, Infinite Jest, etc.). I also want to just buy stuff (since I haven't really purchased anything since the first week of July, because of my inability to stay in one location (peripatetic!), but I can't buy much because I'm very limited in terms of baggage space.

I know, I have it hard.

Anyway, this is the shave cream I've used for the past two years. (One bottle has lasted very long, but mostly because I take a lackadaisical approach to shaving--I also use Scot's razors when I am too lazy to replace mine). I tried this brand because I love their lip balms, and because its hard to find a non-foaming shaving cream for women. (I really hate the kind that puff up because I suspect those bottles are not great for the environment and the always dry out my skin even more than normal).

I never tried dry shaving, although the bottle says you can. It provides a nice slick shave, and did not dry my skin out. I would say it's a great value, and is probably the best drug store option. I like the mild, vanilla scent. I didn't find the cream moisturizing, because I still need to lotion-up pretty aggressively post-shower.

The bottle design is pretty good--it's non-slip with little hand grippies. Also, you don't need to pick up the bottle to dispense any cream, since it's a pump top. 

tl;dr: great choice for the price, nice smell.
