Ten or Less Thursday: EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream

Until recently, I’d all but abandoned using shaving cream. It’s not that I had anything against it, but I found it easier to just use body wash. And then I discovered EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream – which I’ve dubbed the next generation of shave cream. I’ve been using the Pomegranate and Raspberry, which smells lovely and the bright pink bottle adds a nice pop to the product lineup in my shower caddy.

It’s more like a lotion – no foaming action – and I find that really refreshing. PLUS! You can use this wet or dry. I’ve used this dry just as much as I have wet and it works just as well. I think I burned through my first bottle pretty quickly, which I attribute to my excitement over using this product. It’s a “Ten of Less” rockstar as a bottle will set you back about $4.
