Whish Shave Crave and Savour

Delicious Potions and Lotions

Whish Pomegranate Shave Crave and Savour

Just the thought of shaving our legs makes us cringe. Painful thoughts of cheap creams and gels come to mind—the razor burn, ingrown hairs, and the agonizing shave and dry-as-dirt skin that results. Whish Body’s line of Shave Crave products erased all of these terrifying visions from our minds and worked wonders on our legs, underarms and bikini area. Shaving with the creamy Shave Crave was painless—after applying just a thin layer of the white cream, the razor slid along the lines of our legs smoothly and effortlessly.

The silky Shave Savour, an aftershave gel, was quickly absorbed into our skin and didn’t leave behind a greasy film. Our legs never felt softer after such an easy process, and our underarms and bikini area remained irritation-free. Although the twist-off lid was a little awkward in the shower (water from our hands dripped into the jar), the cream seems to last forever, and the amazing shave it provides completely overshadows any doubt about its jar design. Whish’s shaving products come in three delicious flavors: antioxidant-rich pomegranate, soothing lemongrass and extra-moisturizing almond
