I was lucky enough to be chosen by MyChaos as one of the testers of Skintimate Mandarin Burst shave gel and thought I would share my experiences with you.
About Skintimate Mandarin Burst
Mandarin Burst is the newest scent from Skintimate’s Moisturizing Signature Scent line. Mandarin Burst is a refreshing mixture of mandarin, lemon and lime scents and includes antioxidant Vitamin E and olive butter to help replenish your skin’s natural moisture and provide protection against your razor.
My Skintimate Experience
Winter has been fairly harsh on my skin and I will admit to being lazier about shaving during the cold weather, I don’t take as much time and sometimes just used a razor with a moisturizing strip or even hair conditioner rather than shave gel. That being said, I have been getting ready for the warmer weather and that includes getting my legs ready to peek out of clothing.
Skintimate was such a treat compared to my regular brand of shave gel, it comes out as a thick gel and foams up into a rich lather which both spreads easily but also stays on the leg while shaving. My regular shave gel does not have such a rich consistency and sometimes it slips while you are shaving leaving areas that are not as lubricated. As you can see from the images, you get a lot more from a one second spray compared to my regular shave gel and it foams up a lot more too.
The Mandarin Burst scent is not as strong as I would have thought, it mixes well with the other citrus fruits for a light fresh scent – which also means that he has been stealing it to shave since it is not all that girly scented. It left the steamy bathroom smelling great too.
My legs felt really soft and the close shave allowed me an extra day before needing to shave again. Even before I moisturized, they were soft and less rough/scaly looking so the mix of olive butter and Vitamin E definitely works. The biggest different was my armpits. I often get red bumps after shaving but there were none after using Skintimate, the shave looked a lot smoother too.
I will definitely be buying it in the future.
