Kohana: Nude, naked, bare.
As I thumbed through the "Fornander Collections of Hawaiian Antiquities and Folklore" I was intrigued when I came across the word 'Kohana', or “naked”.
"The sea for going “naked” is at Mamala."
The brief, printed story is...
"The natives often traveled along the reef, especially in times of war, to avoid their enemies on the land. Coming to the break in the reef at Mamala, they were obliged to swim across."
Further searching uncovered that the natives often traveled along this reef naked (kohana). It was then that I knew I had discovered the name for our new unscented post shave moisturizer. Perfect for sensitive skin - nothing you don't need, nothing that could cause harm or irritation to your skin. Just pure perfection in a moisturizer.
The shipping is lightning fast; so much so it makes USPS look bad for all other deliveries. You wanna talk Smooth, try this. Usually the day after shaving my skin hurts especially in the neck area. This suite of products makes me look forward to the next shave. When they say unscented they mean UNSCENTED! Just a marvelous silky application. The oil is really great at protecting. The balm is like a kiss of silk for the skin. I have used plenty of different brands of shaving creams but this one creates memories. Trust me It has always been a love/hate relationship with shaving for 40 years...No More. I will buy this again and again and again.
WOW what a review! Thank you so much Francois! - Sarah
Really great product! My skin is a lot smoother and more moisturizer and now has 0 self-inflicted wounds!
Kohana Unscented Pre-Shave Oil
It works Ok. It's not as "slick" as 2 others I've used, so you need more of it. I would buy it again. Unscented oil is hard to find
