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 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 help skin recover.

How to Use

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

Good stuff

I was reluctant when I opened the package and there was no foam. But the oils mixed together well and I got a really good close shave. Like the fresh feeling it gives my face when I'm done. But I'm tight when it comes to spending and its a bit pricey compared to the cans of foam I can buy for $2.00. Packaging would be concern for traveling.

PERFECT NAME

This really does 'cool' your skin as soon as you put it on. The consistency is just right for shaving; not too thick, not too runny. There's the slightest hint of mint mixed with citrus and a kind of astringent (not really a smell, I know but that's what comes to mind) I do suffer from razor burn and razor bumps, but once I slather this guy on I'm left with smooth skin. Only thing is I also have dry skin and this did dry it out juuuust a tad, but nothing that would make me stop using it . Oh, it's also a really nifty package, nice going on that.

Fantastic Stuff

I don't shave everyday, but when I do I've always used cheap foam creams. This was a far superior product and I'm planning on purchasing full sized sample.

I bought this I loved it so much. You don't have to use too much and it has a great cooling sensation while you shave. A lot less mess for a shave.

this product is great, but im not happy
Purchased

this product is really good you just put it on and it softens your beard a lot making ti weak for the razors, so you get a comfortable shave. it leaves the skin extremely soft smells good, menthol. the cooling effect could be a little bit too much. the reason why i'm not happy is because apparently the person that had it before me, maybe the person that put it inside the box apparently played with the pouch and gave it a lot of wrinkles and stretched the plastic which is not acceptable. at 25 dollars and containing only 3 oz, the product should look good. i have the moisturizer which comes in a pouch too, but it looked normal because nobody played with it. birchbox needs people that is more serious working at their shipping department.

I liked this product- it was easy to use and did the job well. I just have another brand that I prefer so I would not buy this.

Not for Me-but Good Stuff
Sampled

I didn't personally sample this as I have a beard and only clean it up with an electric razor and beard softener, however, my 16 year old son used it and loved it. Helped prevent post-shave breakouts and he said his skin didn't feel "as if it's gonna crack and fall off" after he shaved.

This gave me a really smooth, close shave. The razor glided easily over my skin! No tugging, which was great!

Great Shave
Sampled

I was surprised with how good a shave this cream gave me. I had let my beard grow and I decided that it was time to shave and since I received this sample I decided to use it. It did a good job of prepping my beard for the shave and the shave was great! I will recommend this product for anyone that has a light beard because it helped me achieve a smoother shave. The sensation that it leaves afterwards is also pleasant.
