Birchbox Breakdown

When your dad taught you how to shave with that razor he’d removed the blades from, he was hoping that you’d grow up to use a shaving cream like this. This classic softens and lifts beard hairs, while simultaneously soothing and moisturizing your skin. Add some Sandalwood aromatherapy to the mix, and you’ve got something that is pops-approved.

How it Works

The rich formula is loaded with glycerin and essential natural oils that protect and hydrate your skin. It spreads easily with either a shaving brush or your fingers.

How to Use

You can spread this rich cream with your hands, but The Art of Shaving® and Birchbox Man strongly recommend using a shaving brush—specifically one made out of badger hair. After applying a thick lather, go with the grain on your first pass, then re-lather and do a second run against or perpendicular to the grain.

The Grail of Shave Creams!!!
Purchased

My husband's poor face was as rough as sandpaper, and we've tried everything on the market to find something he could shave with and not dry out his skin any more. We both love sandalwood on him so, as a last resort, I spent big for a travel set of The Art of Shaving in Sandalwood and hoped for the best. The set came with the brush, so he dove in, skeptically--horrified at what I spent on the set. To our relief, and delight, he emerged from his shave soft, smooth and smelling sassy.

This is high-grade cream, and high-quality fragrance. He found that, with the brush and daily shaving, that one jar lasts him about four months. Of course, I bought 2 more jars from Birchbox to cover him for a year. It works out well, because he can't use the lotion and oil on his face, so the rest of the kit will be used for his hands or legs if he gets dry. So all we need to buy is the shaving cream. Small price to pay for what we've spent on razors, lotions, creams, foams, and all the other nonsense. God forbid this item is discontinued.

I might try the Unscented or the Lavender for my own shaving needs. He raves about this stuff, and so do I for what it's done for his skin. A definite keeper.

excellent reliable stuff. good lather, smooth gliding application.
the shave is good.
the only drawback is the absence of menthol or other scent.

Fantastic shave cream

I use the entire line of AOS products in my shaving routine. This shave cream smells great and lathers up well and facilitates a smooth awesome shave. Close, moisturized and soothed. Excellent product!

My guy won't shave with anything else now
Purchased

Since my guy discovered Art of Shaving about a year ago, he flatly refuses to shave with anything else. Which is good for both of us, because otherwise he has extremely dry skin, flakes, and painful red ingrowns, and since he's started using Art of Shaving religiously he looks SO much better and more comfortable. He moisturizes afterwards with Lucky Tiger and looks great. Plus the packaging looks classy and masculine next to the sink. And I can't say I don't steal it for my legs for special occasions, though I really can't justify the price right now for shaving legs with this daily!

Oh, also for any guys rocking the Captain Picard and the ladies who love them, mine uses this on his whole scalp (what's left on it) as well as his beard. Great for that purpose too.

Solid 4 stars, smells great and does the job
Purchased

I have been using the Art of Shaving-system for over a year now. Their products are always high quality and work great. I can't justify giving 5 stars because I haven't tried the other products out there that are the same tier, but this was a very solid start. The cream produces a rich lather and sandalwood smells great.

My husband has the most sensitive skin, We stick to what we know. However we tried a sample and this worked well for him. Other than being sensitive his skin is normal/ reg combination skin. This has worked well for him!

Great shave

The art of shaving cream is fantastic! It foams easily with very little work compared to regular shave soap. It helps with a smooth close shave. It feels healthy and light on your face compared to the heavy gels in the cans. With sensitive skin like mine, since using my face is cleaner and healthier then ever before. Provides great protection against skin irritation. After you shave with this you will never want to go back to what you were using. As far as the sandalwood scent it's not overpowering. And stimulates your nose and all around makes you feel classy. Overall this is a great product and recommend and encourage everyone to try it.

my husband has a very coarse beard and sensitive skin... He has had no issues with ingrown hairs since using this. Took him 20 years to finally find a product that works for him!
