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.

Clean shave, but...

The cream has a good feel and provides good protection for shaving. But it does not rinse off the razor easily, which slows down the process. I don't find it practical for this reason.

Me likey

I like this shaving cream, if you use a cream give this one a try. I had not tried this brand before I received the sample in a monthly box.

Good, but not my favorite

Overall it was just okay. It comes creamy, so you do not need a brush to get a good lather. However, I prefer to use another shaving cream and lathering with water, compared to this.

No Razor Burn

Honestly this may be the best shaving cream I have used. I have tried everything to try and reduce razor burn and ingrown hairs, but nothing seemed to work. I was able to get 4 shaves out of the sample, and had the same great result each time. I would recommend this product to anyone who has had the same issue as myself.

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.
