Whish Shave Crave *Review*

Monday, November 30, 2009

Thanks to Whish the makers of Shave Crave, women can enjoy a nice smooth shave, without drying out our skin or causing unsightly razor burn. Shave Crave by Whish delivers silky smooth legs, by using natural ingredients such as organic shea butter and natural squalene, that do not irritate the skin.

 The Story behind Whish in their own words.

"Jesse Werner has always had very sensitive skin, making ingrown hairs; razor burns and cuts a part of his daily shaving routine. After trying countless products and razors, including prescription creams, Jesse finally found the solution to his rough shave problem – a European cream that he used with a shave brush. One day, Jesse’s wife, finding herself stuck without shaving cream, asked to borrow his. Undaunted by the leathery chair smell, she swirled it on and set to shaving – using both the cream and the brush for the first time –and experienced, in her opinion, the best shave of her life. Her only comment was “Wish I had something that worked so well, without leaving me smelling like an old English guy.”

Always the attentive husband, Jesse remembered hearing his wife say that she wished there was a shaving cream and brush like his for women. And, so, Jesse set out to make his wife’s wish come true. First, he enlisted the help of his brother, Sam, a skilled engineer with experience in product development. Then, the two teamed with a top chemist laboratory, a brilliant product chemist, and a prestige manufacturer of women’s body care and cosmetic products. Countless test shaves later, his wife’s wish became Whish.

But that was just the beginning of the story. Just as Jesse and Sam were diving into this delicious-smelling new world of products, there came another little request. Since they had done such a marvelous job with the shaving, Jesse’s wife asked if perhaps, maybe, they might tackle a whole line of bath products. Something that would leave her entire body as soft as her legs.

Hmmm. Undaunted Jesse and Sam started researching and found that (much to their horror) most bathing products use sulfates as their cleansing bubbling ingredient. Okay if you’re a car or a load of laundry, but extremely harsh on people. So they looked into organic and natural ingredients like organic shea and raspberry butter, aloe and marigold, organic seaweed and rice bran oil and discovered that not only were they extremely effective, they smelled delicious, were gentle and naturally moisturizing. And so by golly, they took all of these amazing ingredients and created a luscious line of scrubs and washes and butters to complete the tip to toe bathing experience they have started. Just another whish, happily granted."

My review

I recently was given the opportunity to try the  Pomegranate Shave Crave Pump, a non-foaming gentle shaving cream. 

I usually dread shaving my legs, not only because of the additional time that it takes to shower, but because I have super sensitive skin that breaks out easily with razor burn. With this shaving cream, I received a very close shave that left my legs soft and smooth without the nasty redness and painful bumps.

I found that not only did this shaving cream leave me bump free it smelled absolutely delicious, and made my time spent shaving more enjoyable.

What I didn't like about this product was that the pump was a little hard to get used to, it takes a little more work to dispense than the average aerosol can, I normally use.

It is also a bit pricey at $24.00, But if you suffer from sensitive skin like myself than the investment is worth it.

You can purchase the Whish line of skincare products in store at Nordstrums, Lord & Taylor, Studio at Fred Segal, Apothecary at the Wynn and Zitomer.

Or.. you can order online at or one of the following
Online Retailers:,,,, (Canada), (United Kingdom) and (Australia)

I would love to try this stuff out. It is expensive, but I'm like you, my skin is so sensitive! People think it is strange at how my legs break out in razor burn all the time, but I have found nothing that works! Maybe I should invest in some of this stuff!

Thanks for the review. It looks interesting. Definitely a luxurious extra and not a necessity, but it still looks nice.
