E-Shave products are often thought of as "new age" and are often written off as they are viewed as too "shee shee" and not traditional enough. While E-Shave doesn't have a century old company history, they do have simply outstanding products. From shaving brushes, to shaving creams to after-shaves, they're all simply first rate products that leave very little to be desired.
The big difference with E-Shave products, and possibly why some may be a bit apprehensive about trying them, is they're just plumb different. E-Shave products have different packaging, scents, etc.... they're a far cry from your seemingly "normal" tub of Trumpers - and I mean this in a good way. Their shaving brushes have very long shapely handles, their stands are odd, and original looking, and their products are an artistic expression of the companies founder - Danielle Malka. Of their line of 6 different fragrances, only TWO are commonly found in other lines - the Almond and Lavender scented cream. E-shaves Floral, Citrus, White Tea, and the subject of this article, Cucumber, are all special/specific to E-Shave.
First - let's talk about my only gripe RE: these products, then we'll get to the good stuff. I think they put the shaving cream, and the after-shave in the wrong tubs. The after-shave is in a wide tub, and the shaving cream in a narrow tub, which makes no sense, as the narrow tub is more difficult to get the cream out of with a brush. Other than this trivial gripe - these E-Shave products simply leave nothing to be desired. Let's take a look!
This is a very rich, decadent shaving cream.
Since this is a concentrated shaving cream, you don't need much to really get an overwhelming amount of luxurious lather. Here's just a quick dip in the tub with my E-Shave badger brush.....
Brush loaded with cream and ready to create an abundance of lather!
After a few stirs, the brush is loaded with a beautifully scented cucumber lather. This lather is unlike most others and is significantly more moisturizing and slick.......
Time to apply the lather....
Incredibly thick, luxurious and moisturizing. The cucumber fragrance is incredibly refreshing and relaxing - a must have!
This shaving cream provides beautiful lubrication and works exceptionally well with cartridge razors, DE razors, OR straight razors alike. Not only does it provide superb lubrication, it is also one of the most moisturizing creams, if not the most moisturizing cream, and leaves your face feeling incredibly soft. E-Shave creams are really hard to NOT love! After a shave... you're left wanting more!
Traditionally after a shave... you follow up with an after-shave. While not necessary with this outstanding shaving cream - as it leaves your face in better condition than when you started, you can finish your princely shave with one of E-Shaves matching (and superlative) after-shave balms.
Take just a TINY bit of this thick moisturizing cream and rub/work it into your wet face, and you'll be gifted with babies smooth/soft skin. A little tiny dab of this product goes a LONG way, so don't get overzealous!
Overall: An E-Shave is an "Excellent-Shave" - period. The whole experience from start to finish, is Excellent all around... the scents, the feeling of the products, the quality of the shave, the feel of the brush - just a truly royal experience. E-Shave products leave very little to be desired, and really make a lot of their competitors products seems just plumb inadequate. Incredibly moisturizing, superb quality, outstanding value, and a truly a must have in every enthusiasts toiletry locker.
Take a trip to E-Shave and experience what you're missing!
