Prone to razor burn? Consider downgrading your five-blade to a three-blade. For most even a two-blade will suffice.

Birchbox Breakdown

We like the idea of using a badger brush every time we shave—in theory. The reality is that sometimes shaving happens in a hurry. For those days (read: most), there’s this creamy, brushless formula, which offers the same rich lather experience without all the equipment.

How it Works

This cream is packed with vegan, certified organic ingredients like kelp, dandelion extract, and gotu kola, a tropical creeping plant known for its healing, energy-boosting qualities. Aloe vera helps prevent ingrown hairs and razor bumps, while a combination of coconut, sweet almond, sunflower, and apricot oils soften skin and provides a smooth shave.

How to Use

Wash your face with warm water, then use your hands to apply a thin layer of cream. Gently massage a small amount until creamy. Shave, rinse, and you’re ready to go.

Loved it

I have a pretty sensitive neck/chin area, and often have razor burn after a shave.

This shave cream really left me with a smooth shave. I loved it!

Super results
Purchased

I love the way this shave cream makes my skin feel after i finish shaving. I would typically have a little razor burn when using other products.

This product not only reduced that but also left my skin feeling moisturized.

I would definitely buy again!

hard to get a good lather

I like a nice full lather when I shave, and this product did not provide that for me. There are a number of better shave cream products on Birchbox. This one wasn't a winner.

Great Shave

This product is great. Easy to apply to and keeps the face lubricated through the whole shave. Also is great for sensitive skin like mine. Didn't have an issue with drying out this skin

Decent, not great

I got this as a sample. There is no particular fragrance. This is less a shave cream in the foamy, or soap-like traditional sense. It is a bit greasier than a shave oil, which is why I didn't care for it. It clogs up my razor which induces a hassle to clean but it isn't impossible, and is more trouble than many other shaving products offered on Birchbox. My face didn't feel tingly after shaving . Not bad, but definitely not great. Maybe it is good for women and leg shaving.

Perfect shave

The cream is perfect for a smooth shave. The product smell great and washes out of the razor easily. While pricey, a little goes a long way and last for much longer than anticipated.

Great after first use

Some creams can be too thick and clog the shaver blades. This product is light enough to provide the glide you want and the protection you need.

pretty nice

I like the product and the ease of use. I still think the lucky tiger cream shaving lotion is the best. I didnt like the container it is in for this use. I love the containers for other uses though.

well made, left skin feeling great

A very good product, left my skin feeling very clean and smooth. Even conditioned beard quite well. However it does take a bit more water than other products to remove.

Great Product but $$

I LOVED this. This worked amazing. I have really sensitive skin and had no issues when I used this product. Was really bummed when I ran out of the sample. And with it being a little more on the pricey side, I struggling to fork over the cash for the full size product.
