Birchbox Breakdown

Save for a bespoke suit from Savile Row, few things will make you feel as gentlemanly as a classic English shave with a badger brush and straight razor. This legendary cream, direct from London’s ultrasuave West End, is your chance to recreate a professional British cut throat at home and add a bit of old-fashioned elegance to your morning routine. It’s backed by over 150 years of experience, so you know you’ve got history on your side.

How it Works

The rich cream builds into a thick lather that protects and moisturizes through the shave. Sandalwood adds a woodsy scent that is masculine without being overpowering, while avocado is decidedly more neutral.

How to Use

Dampen the skin with warm water or a hot towel to soften facial hair. Massage cream into a rich lather and shave with the grain.

Primary Shave Cream.
Purchased

I bought the shave cream as I started using a safety razor. The sandalwood is a great scent, and the cream doesn't leave the skin greasy nor does it leave it dry. How can you go wrong buying a shave cream from a company who has been around for over 150 years!!

DE Shaver, and I really like TOBS

I have been a double-edge safety razor shaver for about a year now, and I've tried a number of different creams, soaps, blades, and preparation supplies.

I can say without a doubt that I prefer TOBS (all of the scents, really...try a sample pack) for shave creams. The lather is excellent, and a tub like this lasts me for months.

Great smell, Long-Lasting
Purchased

My boyfriend really enjoys this purchase. I love the sandalwood scent, and it compliments his favorite aftershave lotion (also a sandalwood, though slightly sweeter.) The packaging negates need for a separate shaving bowl, which is great for travel and nice in compact vanity situations. He says he just barely dips the tips of his shaving brush in and that gives him enough lather to shave his entire face. I imagine his head requires another dip! Nonetheless, he says this amount of product will last him a very long time.

Great Lather, Odd Scent

This is one of the best shaving creams I've tried. I was surprised with the amount of lather it produced and how smooth it made my shave. The scent, however, leaves a bit to be desired. It smells like something my grandfather would use.

Nice Shaving Cream
Purchased

I am a sucker for sandlewood... I don't know what it is about it - but that's why I bought this and it didn't disappoint.

I apply it both with my hands and sometimes with a brush - it's perfect for either. The container is kind of like a shaving soap bowl with a screw on lid, which is nice when I do use a brush.

It's a little big to throw in my dopp bag for travel, but perfect for at home.

A must have to step-up your shave game
Purchased

I have been wet shaving (double edge) for months. I have grown to love Sandlewood scented things. I tried TOOB sandlewood and was blown away. Much stronger smelling, the type of lingering smell that lasts all day, almost like a natural extra scent. Girlfriend approves very much.
