If you’ve read my Anthony Shaving Cream review, you know that I hate shaving. My steel wool-like hair grows in a thousand directions, making shaving difficult, and the after effects painful.
I bought some new Anthony shaving products from www.menessentials.com, and I’m going to review the first product today, the Razor Burn Repair cream.
The 4oz bottle promised to be the quick and easy answer for razor burn and shaving bumps. So sayeth the product description: “Don’t look so irritated! This lightweight emulsion moisturizes, soothes skin, and calms razor burn. Marshmallow and aloe vera reduce redness and stinging. Chamomile and St. John’s Wort relieve irritation and inflammation. Ginseng and Vitamins A, C, and E nourish and protect skin.” Marshmallow? That actually does sound kinda soothing.
I put the razor burn repair cream to an immediate test — I was using the same Mach 3 Turbo blade I had been for over a week and I was sure to get some irritation along the right side of my neck. I shaved, rinsed with cold water, and blotted my face dry with my towel. The smallish bottle is a hard plastic, which made squeezing out a dime-sized amount trickier than it should have been. I expected a thicker cream, but the light blue concoction is about the consistency of thin skin lotion. I rubbed the cream onto my throat and face and awaited the sting typical with aftershave lotions.
Nothing happened! That’s a good thing; no rapid inhalation as the mostly-invisible cuts and abrasions were covered in marshmallowy and chamomiliean goodness. I had a visibly red and bumpy 1″ wide, 3″ long stretch of irritated skin on the right hand side of my neck. After about two minutes, it was gone and my skin was almost completely smooth. Score one for the good guys at Anthony.
There’s s’more than one reason to buy this cream!
- It has fraggin’ marshmallow in it!
- Soothes irritated skin within minutes of application
- Nice, super mild scent won’t interfere with your regular ol’ stank
- Says what it does, does what it says
- $22 might be too high a price for some
- Hard bottle makes it hard to squeeze out a small amount of cream
Anthony Logistics Razor Burn Repair cream, I give thee:
Four and a half out of five STFU mugs!
