Olivelia Shaving Foam

If I say “Greece” you probably don't think of cosmetics, do you?
However, Greece is more than just beautiful scenery, historical places and tzatziki. It's a country full of olives. On my latest visit to the wonderful island Crete, I decided to try out one of the numerous brands of olive based shaving foams.

The Olivelia Shaving Foam, priced at €7.50 in the local tourist shop in Agia Marina,  was my pick of the trip. The name is a combination of the Latin and Greek names for olive (Olive and Elia).

The shaving foam is free from parabens. The bottle design and the label will make you think of a natural, ecological product, and it does contain both olive oil and extracts from hop and cotton. However, the list of ingredients also tells that it's a cosmetic product and contains perfume among a long list of artificial ingredients. I was slightly disappointed about this but mainly because the packaging made me think of a more ecological product.

At first, I found the Olivelia Shaving Foam a bit too watery, and was not able to get a very good shave with it.

After some attempts, I found a solution for that problem; just spray the foam onto your hands and rub it for a few seconds. That will wipe away a lot of the water, and leave a nice, frothy foam that gives a much better shave.

All in all, I have enjoyed using the Olivelia Shaving Foam. It is available from several sources online, including Mocmarket.com.
