Whish has just released Shave Crave Pump, a new take on its scented shaving lotion. While the new product is similar to the original, I've done my homework to figure out a few of the differences. I've spoken to the peeps at Whish and had them explain what's behind these new slender bottles.
The old shave creams are 6.7 ounces and cost $32 while the new pumps contain five ounces for $24. The formula is more concentrated, therefore it's more moisturizing. Since it is packaged in an easier to use (this I can definitely vouch for) air can as opposed to an aerosol can, it's free of added chemicals like propane and alcohol which tend to dry out the skin.
Also, two new flavors, papaya coconut and blueberry mint (my fave), have been added to both products with the launch of the pump. I personally like most of the scents, but I do find them to be a little difficult to wash off. Have you tried any of them yet? For a description of each of the scents,
- Pomegranate is fruity but it also has a strong and distinct sugary scent. It contains pomegranate oil (an antioxidant) and is suitable for all skin types.
- Blueberry Mint is also very sweet, but it's much less sugary since the mint helps to balance it out. It contains blueberry oil (another terrific antioxidant) and the mint oil is great for soothing achy muscles.
- Almond is even less sweet, but not completely void of sugar. It actually reminds me a lot of marzipan. It is formulated with almond oil which is moisturizing and nourishing, and it is best suited for dry skin.
- Lemongrass has more of a floral and less of a foody scent. It contains lemongrass oil to calm skin and sore muscles. It is best suited for oily skin.
- Papaya Coconut is the most subtle of all the scents. It is a little bit creamier and since it is enhanced with coconut oil and papaya oil, it's great for cell turnover and dry skin.
