Hanni Shave Pillow
The Hanni Shave Pillow is marketed as a game-changer in the world of dry shaving, promising a smooth, luxurious shave without shaving cream.
The product is designed to combat common shaving issues like razor burn and ingrown hairs to ensure a close, comfortable shave.
In my experience, while the Shave Pillow did provide a certain level of smoothness without having to actually get in the shower, I feel it fell short in some areas.
Using enough of the product to prevent razor burn led to my razor clogging, which was not ideal.
Additionally, I noticed a slight burning sensation on my legs post-shave, leading me to the conclusion that this product might not be suitable for people with sensitive skin.
The Shave Pillow, with its creamy texture and promise of a soothing shave, has potential, but it may not be the universal solution for all shaving needs.
I think I’ll hang onto Shave Pillow for an on-the-go moisturizer though!
Hanni Cocoon Cleanse
The Hanni Cocoon Cleanse was my favorite of all 4 Hanni products!
This cleansing bar lathers up effortlessly, providing a light-yet-thorough cleanse. Trust me, you haven’t seen another product lather like this one.
It's gentle on your skin, making it suitable for daily use, and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed and clean without any residue.
In my experience, it even outperformed the Shave Pillow as a base for shaving, offering a smoother glide for the razor similar to traditional shaving creams.
That said, after finishing this bar, I’ll likely return to using Naturium The Glow Getter as my 2-in-1 body wash and shaving gel.
Overall, The Cocoon Cleanse is a testament to Hanni's understanding of what makes great body care: simplicity, effectiveness, and a gentle touch.
Hanni Splash Salve
The Hanni Splash Salve was another winner.
This thick, nourishing moisturizer is a standout product, delivering on its promise to lock in moisture effectively.
It's a joy to use, especially for those with dry skin, as it leaves your skin feeling deeply moisturized.
Plus, it's so convenient to apply as it's water-activated.
Basically, after using The Cocoon Cleanse, you then go in with Splash Salve on your wet skin and quickly hop under the water for a minute again to active the product.
Overall, I think the Splash Salve stands out for its rich texture and lasting hydration. It's certainly a product I recommend for anyone looking for a good body moisturizer.
Hanni Water Balm
Last up is the Hanni Water Balm, a unique addition to your body care routine.
This product is a post-shower spray designed to add an extra layer of hydration to the skin.
The application is refreshing and the sensation is pleasant - you'll be amazed at how nourishing a simple hydrating spray can be, especially layered over Splash Salve.
Now, for those who enjoy an extensive body care routine, the Water Balm could be a delightful luxury.
However, for a minimalist routine, I'd say you can skip this one unless you’ll use it as a lightweight alternative to your usual moisturizer.
The Water Balm, while enjoyable, makes me question whether it's an essential step or a supplementary luxury in body care (spoiler alert: it’s the latter).
The Bottom Line: Is Hanni a good brand?
After weeks of testing Hanni's products in the shower, my overall impression of the brand is positive.
Hanni offers a fresh perspective on body care, with products that cater to various needs and preferences.
Overall, Hanni excels in creating products that offer a sensory and effective body care experience, a rarity in a market flooded with generic options.
So, is Hanni worth the hype?
For those who value a comprehensive, luxurious body care routine, Hanni is a brand that deserves attention.
Their commitment to quality and user experience shines through in products like the Splash Salve and Cocoon Cleanse.
As with any skincare brand, individual experiences may vary, but Hanni brings something unique and enjoyable to the table.
