So, you can only imagine my excitement when I found out that I was selected to receive a free product sampling of my all-time favorite shaving creme on the market, Skintimate, with the added bonuses being: a) a FULL can - not just a sample can; b) 20% more free on top of the full sized sample; and c) the fact that the scent is new and absolutely fabulous!
Even though we're in "back to school" mode around here in NJ, the temps are still in the high 70s-80s, which means bare legs are in full force. I, for one, wore a dress my first day back to my university teaching setting, which meant I needed to be #SkintimateHappyLegs prepared!
I have to say, I knew that the quality of the product would be stellar -- I love Skintimate shave gel (and no, I'm not just saying that because of the product test -- I've been a consumer of Skintimate gel products for years), but the SCENT of this sample in particular was WONDERFUL! I've tried several of their scents before, and enjoyed them all, however, I felt that the Mandarin Burst shave gel in particular had just the right balance of scent in terms of femininity, sweet - but not overwhelmingly so, and refreshing - fruity, but not "Pine Sol floor clean" -- while the scent of a lemon can definitely awaken the senses, no one wants to smell like a freshly mopped floor. The scent can also be overwhelming. The fact that I liked the scent, and it wasn't too strong - just the right amount of potency - made it that much more appealing to use. Let's face it ladies, shaving on a daily basis, especially during the summer months, is totally a chore. It's irritating, but expected. I do it, but begrudingly. That said, I was pleased to be lathering up with the Mandarin Burst gel these past ten days.
I give this product two thumbs (legs? toes?) waaaay up!
