Whish Body Shave Crave & Shave Savour Review | #Sponsored #Whish

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Whish Body. I received a promotional item and Whish Body Samples to facilitate my review. 

Summer is here and that means shorts, skirts and swim suits! It also means more shaving and moisturizing to keep your legs soft, smooth and beautiful. With that said, I want to introduce you Whish Body Shave Crave and Whish Body Shave Savour;  two awesome shaving products that will keep your legs beautiful and silky through the summer!

It wasn’t until I had the opportunity to participate in the Whish Body campaign, that I realized my shaving cream actually contains unimaginable ingredients. 

{Really, what were some of these people thinking when they created shaving cream?} 



Chemicals Found in Common Shave Creams & Gels
Paraban
Sulfate
TEA & DEA
Propane

{Don’t worry, I will wait until you recover from the shock of seeing what was listed…} 

The good news is Whish Body products not only provide an awesome shaving experience, but more importantly, they do not contain these dangerous ingredients. I can't help but wonder if some of my shaving mishaps, including skin irritation, were from just shaving or perhaps from the chemicals themselves. {Almost makes me want to put on my old shaving cream and not even touch it with the razor just to see if I still have some of the irritations from what I thought was from shaving might actually be from the chemicals used in my shaving cream!}

Instead of using these dangerous chemicals, Whish Body uses a list of  natural, organic ingredients to create a luxurious, smooth, bump-free, shave every time for beautiful, silky-soft legs.

What Makes Whish Body Shave Crave Different

Aside from an amazing shaving experience, Whish Body Products do not contain the common shaving compounds listed above. Instead they use natural ingredients to insure that you are not only getting the best, but also the safest products for you and your family. Whish Body Shave Crave is available in six different fragrances which, coordinate with their other skincare products.

Some of the Awesome Whish Body Shave Crave Ingredients & Benefits:
  • Natural Squalene works as a natural moisturizer
  • Organic Shea Butter protects and heals to reveal young and healthy skin
  • Organic Green Tea provides sun protection and anti-aging properties
  • Organic Coconut Oil is high in antioxidants, coconut acid helps penetrate into the underlying skin tissue to deeply moisturize while preventing and protecting against free radicals
  • Organic Jojoba Seed Oil seals in moisture for hydrated and radiant skin


How to Use Whish Body Shave Crave

  1.  Whish Body Shave Crave is simple, I mean after all it is shaving cream. 
  2. Simply soak in a warm bath or shower to soften your skin and hair. {Of course I am referring to your leg hair here, not the hair on your head.} 
  3. Swirl a quarter size amount of Shave Crave to damp skin with your fingertips. You can also use the Whish Body Brush to apply.
  4. Always apply the cream in a circular motion. This causes the hair follicle to rise for a closer shave.
  5. Shave with the grain in smooth, long strokes. For an even smoother and closer shave, re-lathe and shave against the grain.
Rinse and enjoy your incredibly smooth legs!


Whish Body Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel

Another amazing Whish Body products is the Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel. This gel works perfect for soothing your skin after shaving, tanning and other hair removing methods such as waxing and laser treatment. But, not only does it sooth your skin, it also prevents hair growth. That means less shaving and even smoother legs. 

Shave Savour Ingredients & Benefits:

  • Organic Aloe, a soothing, natural anesthetic with anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties
  • Organic Shea Butter, an ideal natural skin moisturizer due to its high levels of non-saponifiable fats and antioxidants
  • Panthenol for added hydration and moisture
  • Hyaluronic Acid and Retinol Palmitate to renew fresh skin
  • Chapparel Extract to inhibit hair growth



My Review of Whish Body Shave Crave

Lucky for me, I usually don’t have to shave but every 2-3 days. Unfortunately, I do have to make sure that I use a quality shaving cream/gel to prevent red bumps and razor burn. My legs are rather sensitive to shaving and it isn’t something I can usually do on the fly because if I’m in a hurry then there’s no doubt I will end up with razor burn. 

I’ve always been an advocate of all shaving creams are NOT created equal, but I can honestly say, that I never knew shaving cream could feel this good! Not only did I get the opportunity to try the Whish Body Shave Crave but, I was also able try the Shave Savour Hair Inhibiting Gel, both in the pomegranate fragrance. The smell is incredible!

The first thing I noticed about Shave Crave was that it doesn’t foam up like most shaving creams or gels. At first, I thought wow, this going to take more than I thought it normally would… WRONG! The consistency is similar to a thick, creamy lotion, and it stays that way- even when you rub it on your legs. Unlike typical shaving creams, it stays on well- even with the occasional water splash.*Finally a shaving product that doesn’t end up rinsing off once side of my leg while I shave the other side.*  And, though it stays on well, it washes off easily when you want it and it doesn’t leave any slimy, greasy residue.

With the very first stroke of my razor I could tell I had found a new favorite! Not only is it unique in texture, but the glide is amazing. It was almost as if I was using a razor without a blade because there were no tugs and no stinging. I have a small scar on my left shin has a thin indention and I can always feel when I shave with my usual shaving cream. However, with the Shave Crave, the glide is so smooth that I couldn’t feel it! I just can put into words how smooth of glide this creates!

After shaving, I was impressed with not only how soft my legs felt, but how comfortable it was. I know this is going to sound silly, but I honestly can’t stand the feel of my legs after I shave. Yes, they are soft and smooth but, that awkward feeling when you slide into the sheets and your legs feel… hmmm… how can I explain this…? I don’t know---- but maybe like they almost stick to the sheets. I’m not making any sense here am I? Sorry, but you know, that feeling when you get into bed, or put on pajama pants after shaving, that funny feeling you get on your skin… that wasn’t there…. Nope- and I loved Shave Crave for that reason, as well! Come to think of it, I wonder if it may be residue, or something similar, from the ingredients in my usual shaving cream. Perhaps it’s the propane drying out my legs. YIKES! {Sorry, I still can’t get over the ingredients found in common shaving creams!}

Long story short, I absolutely love Shave Crave! My legs felt incredibly smooth, shaving was a breeze and there were no bumps, no redness and no funny feeling skin after shaving.

Whether you have sensitive skin, are looking for safer chemical-free shaving products, or just want to experience a luxury-style shaving cream, I would strongly recommend Body Which Shave Crave. And don’t forget to pair it with the Whish Body Shave Savour to reduce hair growth and minimize the need for shaving.
