While at my local Target yesterday I noticed a shaving brush in the shaving aisle and right next to it a shaving cream by something called Shea Moisture. I read the package and it actually suggested that I use a shaving brush to use which I took as a good sign. Unfortunately, I did not read the reviews here before buying and used it this morning. My experience seems to be in keeping with what most others say about the product... it was absolutely horrible. It was like shaving with hair gel. All it managed to accomplish was to gunk up my razor and brush. It took me twice as long to clean up with gel slopping all over and my face burned so much after two passes I had to stop.
I cannot understand, with so many excellent creams and soaps out there, why Target would stock this junk. It's almost as if Gillette hand picked them so that anyone looking for an alternative would jump right back to the foam and fusion. I certainly would have rather used the canned goop than Shea Moisture again. I don't know if I really have a point here I just hate to see such an inferior product being touted by a major retailer.
