My thoughts – The Art of Shaving New York
I’ve long given up on using ‘ladies’ shaving foam as I find it boring and predictable. I’m also one of those lucky gals that can get away with shaving their legs once a week so I don’t want to buy my own stuff if I can use Jamie’. I like scouring the Mankind website for new things to try and we got this a few months ago.
The packaging is not as exciting as the Geo F. Trumper shaving cream I reviewed last year and seems cheaply made in comparison. But this is more expensive – £20.00 for 150g, whereas Geo is £15.50 for 200g. Price aside, this does have a lovely fresh lemony scent that reminds me of American lemonade.
The cream spreads really well and you don’t need much to cover your legs but you should be aware that it doesn’t lather up. It does make your skin nice and lubricated to give you a close shave and rinses off easily too. I asked Jamie to contribute to this review but he thought this and Geo were pretty much the same – until I told him the price difference!
The Art of Shaving only lasted about 3 months were as the Geo lasted twice as long, is less expensive and you get more to boot. Needless to say A of S won’t be on our re-buy list. We are going to try Bluebeard’s Revenge shaving cream next as I’ve read good reviews about it. I think Jamie is the perfect candidate as he definitely has a man’s beard, it grows back about an hour after he’s shaved.
So ladies do you buy women’s shaving cream or do you use your fella’s stuff?
