Product Review: Shea Moisture Shave & Groom Set

Source: Shea MoistureDisclosure: Products were provided courtesy of Shea Moisture for the purpose of this review.

One of the things I hate about my grooming routine is keeping up with shaving.  I mean seriously, hasn’t anyone invented anything that can keep my facial hair the same for like a good three months at a time!? I’d seriously be into that.  Anyway, here’s my rundown of the Shea Moisture’s Shave & Groom set.  Read on!

Facial Wash & Scrub: I think this is a good everyday cleanser. It offers great moisture and cleansing properties without stripping skin of natural oils. That being said, I think those with acne prone skin may consider something with salicylic acid which is likely better at preventing blemishes and breakouts.

Beard Softener & Beard Protector:  I’ve come to realize that generations before us have really been missing out.  It turns out that shave oils are REALLY good for your skin.  While I think the shave butter gets a lot of shine from this line, I think the pre-shave oil is probably the most important part of the equation. From the moment I opened it and enjoyed the smell of the shea oil, I knew I would like it.  This greatly contributed to the super close shave I was able to achieve…and it smells so good!

Shave Butter: I enjoyed using the butter, however I feel at times it was a little difficult to get through with my razor as its pretty thick (FYI, I use the Gillette Fusion Pro Glide Power).   But I will say that my single most favorite part of using this shaving combo is the application brush.  Truth is, it really does help evenly distribute the product and it’s such a great throwback stylistically.

Tea Tree Herbal Bump Preventer:  To be honest, I noticed no real effect from the bump preventer. In fact, I have noticed a bump or two on the lower half of my neck. Enough said!

Face Cream:  This daily moisturizing cream has the same scent as the entire line which is definitely a positive.  The real let down is the spray nozzle which makes it difficult to get out of the bottle. Short of that, the cream itself offers a lot of moisture and left my skin feeling pretty smooth.

Overall Impression:  As I’ve been trying to be more conscious of my shaving routine lately, Shea Moisture’s Shave & Groom Set is an easy to follow routine that offers a close, smooth shave.  While the Tea Tree Herbal Bum Preventer and Shave Butter did little for me, I thoroughly enjoy using the Wash & Scrub on a daily basis as my natural cleanser and the Beard Softener is a key component to my shave ritual.  I have discovered that no matter what products I use,  the most crucial component to a good shave is a sharp razor!   That being said, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better shave set at this price point.

  1. Hey! Great review thanks for sharing your experience. It was helpful because I really want to get the line for my baby brother for Christmas but of course I know nothing about men’s shaving. Where can I purchase this entire line?

  2. Hi Allison, personally I think this would make an excellent gift for your baby brother. Shaving is the bane of many men’s existence so I say go for it. The items are sold online at CVS, Walgreens and Target I believe. Head over to sheamoisture.com for more information. You can also find select items in the above mentioned physical locations as well. Good luck and happy holidays!

  3. I’ve tried the shave butter, Wash & Scrub and the Tea Tree Bump Preventer….I’ve been unable to find the other products. The shave butter alone is well worth it. My shave is closer and without razor burns than nearly anything I’ve tried. The Tea Tree Bump Proventer is likey going in the garbage…it burns like mad, smells of grapefruit and doesn’t do anything. The Wash & Scrub is pretty good…it cleans well and suds a lot. The smell of the honeysuckle is a little overpowering, but, I think I can get used to it. I’m anxious to try the beard softener and protector and the face cream….but, so far I’ve been unable to find them.

    Thanks for the review, btw.
