Review-Aveeno Positively Smooth Shower and Shave Cream



A couple of weeks ago I was browsing through the skin care and cosmetics aisles at Wal-Mart and came across a clearence section with this body wash in it. According to the bottle it helps you shave less often, prevents nicks and cuts and acts as a moisturizing body wash. I thought this was a great combo and snatched it up for the $4 clearence price.

When I got it home and into the shower I was grossed out by the texture. It reminded me of something, well something that can't be written here, so to keep it PG it reminded me of rubber cement. It didn't smooth on my legs easily and I didn't really feel moisturized after using it. It did however, provide a good close shave when used with my Venus vibrance.

See the yucky texture?

In terms of shaving less, I don't really know about that one. It does appear to keep my legs smoother for an extra day, so I will keep it in my shower until it runs out.

Price: $4-$7
Where to purchase: Drugstores,Walmart,Target,etc.
Would I buy again: No

Personally, I LOVE this product! I highly recommend it and suggest overlooking the consistancy. This product works! It is great for minimizing unwanted facial hair too!

I love this product!!!! The texture is odd but I squeeze it onto my shower puff and then scrub the area I'm going to shave - I believe the directions recommend this. It suds up very nice and I find I get a closer shave and by the added benefit of exfoliating prior to shaving - I do shave less often. Keep in mind that it took a week or two until I noticed that I didn't need to shave as often.
