Skintimate Peaches and Raspberry Rain shaving gels!
I shave the parts I need to shave with an electric shaver, shampoo and a BIC (no, I won’t get into what bits I shave, because it’s too early in the day, month and year for that mess), so I don’t really pay attention to shaving cream all that much. And no, I don’t get into that shaving cream fetish stuff. Stop it, it’s too early. So anyway, reader Becks made me think of Skintimate shaving gel the other day when she sent in a HSOTD request for Skintimate Peaches and Raspberry Rain shaving gels. Skintimate is still around today, but ten years ago it felt like everyone used it to shave their stufft, because people just couldn’t get enough of shaving themselves with gel cream that smelled like a cross between a dessert topping and a Bath & Body Works queef.
I don’t know how popular Peaches and Raspberry Rain were, but Skintimate really pushed those scents hard. (Side note: I never smelled Raspberry Rain, but I’m guessing it smelled like the sweetened nectar that drips out of Prince’s b-hole when he hits a high note. ) It felt like the commercial played every other second and you couldn’t escape it. It was hypnotic and I’m pretty sure it was a brainwashing tool. Caution: If you press play on the commercial below, prepare to spend your day chanting the words, “Skintimate Peaches or Raspberry Rain” over and over again.
I bet detectives use that question as an interrogation tactic. Trying to choose between Skintimate Peaches and Raspberry Rain will break anybody down. How can you choose?!
