eShave has been on my grooming calendar for quite some time. Finally, I was able to devote some time to giving eShave products a try and today I’ll be sharing my thoughts with you on two products: the Moisturizing Bath Soap (Orange Sandalwood) and Verbena Lime Deodorant. Read on for the full review!
I was originally intrigued by eShave as I heard its origin story. The brand’s founder Danielle Malka wanted to start a brand for the modern man who featured high quality grooming products. Her big push was to help bring back the wet shave leading the brand to create a host of shaving products over the years. Since then, eShave has broadened its scope to include many products that men need to keep themselves looking and feeling their best. You can see why I was drawn to the brand in the first place.
Recently, I was asked to give two products from eShave a try; the Orange Sandalwood Moisturizing Bath Soap and the Verbena Lim Deodorant.
The first product that I tried was the bath soap, which hails from the Provence region in France. Formulated with shea butter, the soap aims to cleanse effectively while not completely robbing your skin of it natural oils. It works well overall as it’s not too drying and gives you that clean soap smell and feeling that many gents are accustomed to. Admittedly, I don’t get much of the orange sandalwood smell when I’ve used the bar, so I can’t say that is a huge selling point. At about $15 ber par, the soap boasts the best of both worlds; offering a good value for an elevated grooming product. If you’re looking to expand into better quality products that don’t stray too much from what you’re used to this is a good bet. Your skin will thank you.
I didn’t have so much luck with eShave’s Verbena Lime Deodorant. Let me begin by saying that the smell is awesome. It’s a perfect scent for summer as the lime conjures up images of beaches and tropical getaways. The deodorant works well but I found that it required reapplication during the middle of the day. Now, for many gents this is going to be a deal breaker and trust me I understand. But, if you’re planning on showering mid day anyway, let’s say after a post-work gym workout, this is a great product to have in your bag.
Overall, I think eShave has some good staple products to offer. While the Verbena Lime Deodorant left me slightly disappointed with performance the scent is amazing. On the other hand, the Orange Sandalwood Moisturizing Bath Soap didn’t offer me much in the scent department but worked well at not robbing my skin of moisture.
