A Good Shave is Hard to Find

Pants season is upon us, but that's no excuse to neglect your legs! The cold weather calls for a heavy-duty shaving product that's up to the task - rich and moisturizing without making a foamy, perfumey mess of your shower. (Regular readers will know that regular old drugstore shaving creams are given no quarter in my shower; I've never been a fan of their messiness, or their scents, which I find reminiscent of air freshener.)

So when I heard that specialty shaving company Maine Shave was developing a new shaving cream, Intimate Moments, especially for Victoria's Secret, I had to give it a try. Maine Shave does shaving seriously; no bizarre scents, unnecessary blue or pink dye, or propellant cans here.

Intimate Moments Shaving Cream promises to be the world's sexiest - and it delivers. Shea butter, jojoba, aloe and their friends, housed in a mild vegetable soap base, indeed make for an excellent shave. The cream has a great texture; smooth, luxuriously thick, but not so much so that it clogs your razor or refuses to spread. It rinses away easily, and has a mild, slightly herbal smell that's soothing without interfering with your other bath and body products.

Best of all? It delivers a close shave and leaves your skin feeling soft, moisturized and smooth. Oh, and as the name implies - it's also great for spots other than your legs.

Intimate Moments is currently available in only a handful of Victoria's Secret stores across the US. Hoping for it to be in your town? Check out the list of stores below:

Oakbrook, IL
Somerset Collection, MI
Topanga, CA
Copley Place, MA
Lakeside, LA
Garden State, NJ
Willowbrook, NJ
Easton Town Center, OH
Tysons Corner, VA
Northpark, TX
The Forum at Caesars, Las Vegas, NV
Shaumberg, IL

Update! If Intimate Moments is not yet soldin your area, try Maine Shave's Intimate Shaving Cream for Women, which, according to the company, is a slightly different formulation of the same quality. Happy shaving!
