Worth the Splurge? Whish Shave Cream Review

Purchased, Affiliated link

I received whish shave cream in blueberry in my March birchbox (click here) I'm not going to lie I was less than thrilled to receive this product. I felt so eh about the box in general. But I dutifully went about and used what I got. I usually just use a cheap conditioner to shave with. When I use a foam shaving cream I always seemed to get nicked.

I have to say even with my eh feeling about this shaving cream it totally blew me away! The smell might not be my favorite, blueberry, the shave is amazing! I was able to get 4 separate lower leg shaves from this product sample. Which surprised me I got that much product.

What won me over was what a close shave I got! My legs felt unbelievably smooth afterwards. Even felt less dry than when I usually shaved. I still had to use moisturizer, not a problem. The scent didn't linger after use.

PROS:

  • Smooth shave
  • Little goes a long way
  • No nicks in sight
  • Skin felt less dry after shave
  • Three options of scents: Blueberry, Almond, Pomegranate
CONS:
  • Pricey, $20
VERDICT: After multiple uses this shaving cream won me over. I can't deny how pricey this shaving cream is at $20 per bottle. I bought 2 full sized versions with my birchbox points. I love how this makes my legs feel after a shave. This is a luxury product for me.  I strongly recommend giving this product a try. You can buy it on Birchbox or their website.
