Follow your shave with a lightweight hydrator like ERNEST SUPPLIES’ Protective Matte Moisturizer.

ERNEST SUPPLIES

Birchbox Breakdown

When ERNEST SUPPLIES set out to improve upon classic shaving cream, they looked to another shower workhorse: hair conditioner. After all, why wouldn’t a product that is designed primarily to soften your mane be able to do the same for your beard? With its low-lather formula, this balm ensures a closer shave. As the formula preps hair for removal, cooling oils also soothe skin, eliminating razor burn and the need for an aftershave.

How it Works

Jojoba, macadamia nut, and babassu oils condition beard hair for easy removal and fortify skin with vitamin B and essential fatty acids. In addition, menthol and eucalyptus oil provide a moisturizing cool and natural fruit extracts keep skin recover.

How to Use

Using circular motions, massage shave cream onto skin, spreading thoroughly. Wet blade with warm water and begin shave.

Great product and packaging!
SampledPurchased

This has been a great travel product for me due to the packaging. I can literally "fold" this in half and stow in my travel baggie. Shave cream goes on smooth and leaves a great post-shave fragrance.

Awesome!

This stuff is great! Make your skin so smooth! I wasn't sure I would like it. I've used the same one for years, but this was with trying.

Great For Head Shaving
Sampled

I normally keep my head shaven clean. I let it grow out longer than usual before shaving it this last time. I expected the usual clogged razor and scalp irritation. It was weird at first not having any lather like the normal shave cream. I was pleasantly surprised though when I didn't get neither the clogged razor nor the scalp irritation I was expecting. I was more impressed/shocked by my razor not clogging up though. It was pretty thick. I like this and do plan on ordering more.

A great one-stop shaving staple
SampledPurchased

The Ernest Supplies cooling shave cream is one of the best shaving products that I have used. Over the past year or so, I've tried many products (most of which are thanks to Birchbox) for shaving and have gotten away from just splapping some water on my face, putting the foam (or gel) shaving cream on my face, and hacking away at my stubble.

Now, I exfoliate to soften my beard, lather up with some much better shaving cream (like the Ernest Supplies), and follow-up with a good aftershave. But the Ernest Supplies is so good that I really could go back to my simple one-stop style of shaving--albeit with far better results than I'd get with drugstore-type brands.

I highly recommend this great shaving cream.

I'm buying it

My face feels great after using this. It cools my skin, smells citrusy, and rinses off well, unlike most-high end shaving creams. I'll definitely be buying this.

The packaging is perfect for squeezing into a travel kit for weekend trips and the shaving cream really soothes your skin while shaving.

A nice new shave cream.

A nice new shave cream. Excellent for the summer season. I had not heard of this brand/scent before. Give this one a try if in the market for a new shave cream.

Very practical and smooth

I use this as a pre-shave treatment when I travel; it does the job of prepping the skin very well and makes subsequent shaving easier with fewer passes. I also make sure to have this packed for long excursions.

Is it wrong to look forward to using this product?

I've been a little ambivalent about some of the Birchbox products, but this is one I am trying to make last as long as possible. My face feels great after I put this on, and it feels great after I've shaved. It really does what it says on the package - cools the skin ( a little tingly) and eliminates the need for an aftershave. Great stuff.
