I recently received my order of Omnishaver Shave Butter, and figured I’d give you my thoughts on it. As you may know from another reply in a post, I use the Omnishaver razor and 1 bajillion percent love it !!
From this review here, (https://howtobeard.com/2019/01/21/omnishavers-shave-butter-review/?fbclid=IwAR3vdoVERu6SZK7UMWkybN8nGZge6g7nNedprP2LIbhGdItSkrvOZc9jZ2k
), and some Q&A on their FB page, it seems that this is pretty much an all-in-one product; shave with it, use it as aftershave & moisturizer.
Since I still have some aftershave and moisturizer to use up, (Headblade HeadClear and HeadLube), I’ve only been using it as my shaving gel/cream so far.
First let me say, it gave me as good a shaving experience as HeadSlick and Cremo do, so $14 after shipping for a 6oz bottle, ($10 base cost), I think, if I find it also seems to be effectively acting as an aftershave, (from a prevent irritation, bumps, ingrown hairs, etc, standpoint, not from a scent standpoint), and moisturizer, then it’s the best bang for my buck.
If I find that for whatever reason, I prefer a separate aftershave and/or moisturizer, then the Cremo is the best bang for my buck.
Having said that…
I typically shave my head every day, but I also skipped a few days to see how it would fare both in every day and every few days scenarios.
So, as I said, I found it to be as slick as both HeadSlick and Cremo, long lasting slickness and comfort.
I actually like the way Cremo feels on my head more, (I used the peppermint/menthol one or whatever it is), so that’s just personal taste YMMV.
One odd thing I found, and the first time caused me to use extra, (which if always necessary, would negate any cost value), is that it does NOT get all white and “lathery.” When I rub Headslick or Cremo around my head and work it in, it turns white… this Shave Butter does not… it remains pretty clear.
You really just notice a “sheen” on your head. So, the first time I added more to “lather” it up… but that didn’t work… so I started to just shave anyway. As I said, it worked phenomenally well.
Going forward I simply used the small amount recommended, same as I use with HeadSlick and Cremo, and it worked like a charm.
Long lasting slickness, and an absolutely great shave each day now for about 8 days.
Do I think it’s better or worse than either HeadSlick or Cremo; no, but I do think it’s a better value than HeadSlick, though not better then Cremo UNLESS it truly can handle the heavy lifting of an aftershave and moisturizer. If it can do that, truly be an “all in one” product, then it’s a great value.
Either way, for those looking to try new products, I VERY HIGHLY recommend this product.
If anyone else has used this, I’d be curious as to your thoughts.
Thanks for reading.
