I like to review products that I’ve actually finished. I feel like I can give a much more well-rounded review -and one that holds more meaning than when I first open it. This week, I actually have three to review:
- Bath and Body Works’ Cashmere Glow Body Spray
- Skintimate Skin Therapy Shave Gel , for Sensitive Skin
- Bic Silky Touch Disposable Razors
Let’s start with the first!
I received the Cashmere Glow body spray as a Christmas present from Ben in 2012, and I have really enjoyed wearing it. It’s a warm vanilla, cashmere and peaches spray, which is a lot of fun to wear in the autumn and winter. I found myself wearing it less during the summer, as it is a bit warm, and well, a bit strong for the summer air. If you wear it lightly as it’s intended, it wears off pretty quick. But if you spray it closer to your body, more like perfume, it will last a really long time. Just about every time I wore this body spray, people told me I smelled really good. I still have another mini bottle or two of this stuff, but as I finished the first bottle, I figured that I share my thoughts. I think I’d give it a 4.5 out 5. That being said, I doubt I’ll stick to it forever. I’, just not a one scent kind of woman -I like change and variety too much. That, and there’s always some new scent that catches my eye. 🙂
My next two reviews come from my shower. 🙂
I’ll start with the shave gel. This Skintimate shave gel was wonderful to work with. My skin is so sensitive, and I find my skin reacting to just about everything. But not this shaving cream! My skin doesn’t feel itchy when I apply it, it lathers smoothly, and I have much happier legs when I use it. I have tried other Skintimate shave gels with scents, and my legs still break out. This is the only shaving cream I have foundthat actually works for me. I actually find myself looking forward to shaving my legs, instead of dreading it. 🙂 I’d definitely give the Skin Therapy Shave Gel for Sensitive Skin a 5 out of 5. I don’t plan on using anything else!
That leaves the Bic Silky Touch Disposable Razor. I did like using it -it worked great, and kept my legs nice and smooth -as long as I used it as intended. The thing about disposable razors is that -they’re disposable. Obvious, I know, but so tempting to forget. If I threw away the razor after every use, or at least every other use, I was okay. But using the same razor any more than that left me with nicks and red bumps all over. The nice thing is that I got all of my disposable razors for free using coupons (it’s $3 a pack normally). But… I can see how it could get expensive, if you’re throwing them away every day. I finished three 7 packs, and still have some other packs left. For now, I’m pretty happy for them. In the category of disposable razors, I’d give Bic Silky Touch a 4.5 out of 5. For razors overall, I’d give it a 3 out of 5. When it comes to nice smooth legs, I think “normal” or longer-use razors work better, and are more economical in the long run.
And that’s it for this installment of “Into The Trash!”
