Coochy Shave Creme is supposed to be formulated to protect all skin types, but I can vouch for this being a flat-out lie. I'll point out some questionable ingredients just to prove it to you:
Parabens! Parabens! PARABENS! Did I mention that it contained parabens? This stuff is terrible for people who are sensitive to it. I wasn't even sure that I was sensitive to this ingredient, which is why I gave this product a try. I found out the hard way that this stuff does terrible things to people who cannot handle it. I had some terrible rashes, bumps, and lots of itching on every spot that I shaved with this stuff. I even tried to be safe and spot test, but it deceived me there, too! Initially, it worked fine, but it took it about 30 minutes for me to start reacting badly toward it. Here are the rest of the ingredients that are listed on the bottle:
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Simmondisia Chinensis (also known as Jojoba seed oil)
The very last list of ingredients confused me for a little bit:
May contain Yellow 6, Blue 1, Yellow 5, Red 40, Red 33, and/or Violet 2
How can they not know what the hell it contains?! It finally dawned on me that there are about 9 different varieties of this product that comes in different scents and colors, so it began to make much more sense to me.
Methylisothiazolinone is a fancy word for a paraben, since lots of people avoid that specific preservative; don't be fooled, this stuff is still not that great for people with sensitive skin, such as myself. Hydrolyzed Keratin and Allantoin are derived from animals, so vegans may want to use a different product.
Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity
This particular product came in a 4 fl. ounce transparent bottle with a shiny yellow sticker containing all the necessary information on it. It's very easy to use, too. Just open the top, press the dispenser button, and squeeze the desired amount out. I'll give this product some credit, since it does not slide off of your skin like many other shaving products tend to do. Once you rinse it off, your skin does feel pretty smooth and it isn't greasy at all.
Taste / Aroma
Due to this being a shaving cream, I did have to wash it off. Even if you use this as a hair conditioner, you'll have to wash it off, too. There wasn't anything to clean up, since it washed off nicely. On the other hand, my razor did have this bizarre residue left on it that only seemed to happen when I shaved using Coochy. None of my other shaving creams left such a residue on my razor. It is rather unfortunate that the only thing I liked about this product was its scent.
There are other products that Classic Erotica has that is supposed to limit these adverse reactions, such as its Coochy Protection mist (which I do own and will review separately another day) that supposedly helps with this. It did make a big difference, but I would not recommend using the shaving cream by itself. It was mandatory for me to use the after-shave with it.
