Pure Romance | "Coochy" Conditioning Shave Cream | The Closest Shave EVER! + Review

I'm pretty sure that we all have our individual preferences when it comes to feminine "maintenance" but I think there's still a common ground that many of us share when it comes to our skin. Personally, I always try to be conscious about the types of products that I use on my body because I have sensitive skin and the last thing I'd want to do is trigger some type of unwanted reaction. I'm definitely a girly-girl and I like to remove hair in places that I'd rather not see it. 

Over the years I've tried it all, shaving, waxing, hair removal creams and those God awful "as seen on tv" contraptions; and I've also had my share of ouch's and mishaps with each of them. Up until now I had been using VEET which is a great depilatory cream in which I've found the most success in. I'd vowed to stay away from shaving for awhile since I always ended up irritating my skin and nicking myself. Well, that was until I came across a product called "Coochy" while searching the web one day. I'd read really good things about it and really wanted to try it. 

The Coochy Conditioning Shave Cream is made by Pure Romance. If you're not familiar with them they are a supplier of adult themed products specifically made for women. They also carry a nice selection of beauty products including massage oils, bath necessities and even makeup. Their mission is to make women feel good throught empowerment, education and entertainment. Coochy has been one of Pure Romance's best sellers for over 17 years and is formulated for both women and men. The shave cream is designed to avoid those unsightly razor bumps from appearing in the bikini area, underarms and legs. It also has more than one use and doubles as a gentle moisturizing hair conditioner. So did it live up to my expectations and deliver what it claims? Check out my full review below to find out!

Glow: For starters I really like the name of this product, I think it's cute and eye-catching. It comes in a variety of scents, mine was pomegranate which smells absolutely delicious! While it says it's a cream, it's more like a really light gel and it lathers well as you apply it to your skin. I also like that it's pink and the same color of the tube, I'm not sure if every scent is that way or not but I would assume they are based on their type. What I loved most about this cream is that I could instantly tell a difference as I was shaving, it went on smooth and it was much easier to navigate the razor along my skin. I didn't cut myself!!!! Which is a shocker for me because I ALWAYS mange to cut myself lol. After shaving, my legs and other parts felt extremely soft and so touchable.

Glare: Some might think $12 (4oz) and $18(8oz) is a little steep for one tube of shaving cream especially when there are drugstore brands that are half or less than half that price. But, I've yet to try another brand that actually made my skin feel and look this good after using it.  I think it's definitely worth it's price. And look at it this way, it also doubles as a hair conditioner so you're getting multiple benefits all in one ^_^

Would I Recommend It? Yes, Yes and more Yes! This was honestly one of the closest shaves that I have EVER gotten and it's funny because after using this it made me realize that my problem wasn't with razors but the shaving products I had been using in the past (I used the same razor that I use all the time). The shave cream also packs a pretty good amount of moisture and didn't leave my skin feeling dry and I was free from irritation. If you're like me and have tried many products that just don't quite cut it, I definitely recommend giving Coochy a try. You won't be disappointed! After trying this cream i'm honestly considering not going back to other shaving creams, it's just that good!

Where To Buy: The Coochy Conditioning Shave Cream currently retails for $12 (4oz) and $18 (8oz) each. To purchase or to learn more please visit http://pureromance.com.

**P.S. Another thing that I wanted to mention is that Pure Romance also works with the Patty Brisben Foundation which promotes women's sexual health. It's one thing to sell pleasurable products but to also do their part in uplifting and educating women about their sexual well being is pretty awesome in my book!
