The Shaving Foam is made in three different delicious scents: Bergamot+Pink Grapefruit, Mint+Eucalyptus, and Pomegranate+Mango. Eco-Armour designed this product to be gentle enough to be "great for men and women with super sensitive skin," and I definitely find that claim to be true since my underarms are on the sensitive side. The lovely scent combinations really enliven the experience of shaving, and the delicious scents linger in the bathroom for a while- which is really lovely. It is truly an aromatherapy shaving experience that simply delights the senses and lifts the spirits. I feel good when I use these products, and an added benefit is that my skin feels silky smooth and hydrated afterward.
According to Eco-Armour:
- For men and women of all skin types.
- These light luxurious shaving and body wash foams will leave skin looking, feeling and smelling AMAZING.
- The eco-armour plant-based patented formula acts as a first-aid to skin and razor blades.
- Helps to reduce ingrown hairs, red bumps, razor burn, nicks, cuts and dull blades.
One of the first things that I noticed was the lovely texture of the foam- it is very creamy and emollient- yet it in terms of density and foaminess it resides somewhere between a pumping liquid soap and a traditional shaving foam. I prefer the lighter texture of this product to the density of more traditional shaving products.
I enlisted the help of my husband for this review, and told him that I needed a detailed honest assessment of this Shaving Foam after using it for about a month, and under varied conditions. His first experiment was under less than optimal conditions because his razor blade had become dull and was in dire need of replacement. I actually suggested that he replace the blade first, but he insisted on trying it this way first. He reported that he still got a close shave and that his skin felt good (soft, clean and moisturized)- despite the fact that he was using a pretty dull blade. When he did finally replace his dull blade he said that he really loved the performance of the product, and the fact that his skin was left baby soft with a remarkably close shave (without any nicks!).
I wish that I could say that I preferred one scent to the others, but all three combinations are fantastic. The Pomegranate+Mango is very fresh and clean; Bergamot+Pink Grapefruit has a tantalizing light citrus scent; and the Mint+Eucalyptus is invigorating. We both really love all three.
Eco-Armour also makes an amazingly effective and highly unique Botanical Insect Repellent & Moisturizer, and while it is not something that I am using- it is the one product that my husband was the most excited about (by a long shot). My husband has a nightly game of ball with Delilah that became pretty uncomfortable because of all of the mosquitoes that have been coming out at night- he would usually come in fairly quickly because he was getting eaten alive outside. However, he told me that since using this product that all insects have kept far far away from him. Now the boy and his dog can play ball until the sun comes up, if they so choose. Not only is this repellent DEET free, but it smells delicious-- it has a very pleasant lemony scent that is delightful. Add to that the fact that it moisturizes your skin and is safe. It's really a win win.
