Billy Jealousy

Birchbox Breakdown

This superslick formula is as notable for the ingredients it doesn’t use—alcohol, benzocaine, menthol—as for the ones it does—namely, cushioning micro-silicone beads that leave your mug smooth and nick-free. The conditioning cream also softens beards of all varieties (from Spartan to mountain man-esque) and actually extends the life of your razor blade. No wonder this hero product earned top marks from Esquire and has a celeb following that includes George Clooney, Ben Affleck, and James Franco.

How it Works

This super-slick cream employs water-soluble micro-silicone beads to minimize razor drag, nicks, and ingrown hairs. Orange, grapefruit, lime, and bergamot oils lend this super-lubricator a fresh, citrusy scent.

How to Use

Wash face with warm water, then massage on a quarter-sized dollop. Shave, occasionally adding warm water to improve the slickness of the cream.

So far, so good
Sampled

My wife complains my beard is too prickly, and this product actually seems to help with that a bit somehow. Love that its ingredients are free from some irritants, as the skin underneath my beard is typically more sensitive. Smooth texture and works great for a shave that feels like I'm treating myself.

Not as good as other products used before
Sampled

Boyfriend used this shaving cream and he said that the gel did not lather well like his current product and the shave was not as close. Still usable for the everyday shaver, but he is a beard grooming guru so he will not be using it for his purposes.

Good Stuff

This shave cream gave me a smooth shave even though my razor was a bit dull. So that means that this shave cream works great. Perfect for my sensitive skin. Will likely purchase in the future.

huge let down
Sampled

I was excited to try this shave cream, I have very sensitive skin and thought this would be my savor. Nothing special about this shave cream, does not lather up well at all, major let down. Still had ingrown hairs and skin irritation.

A decent shaving cream - I prefer a cream that lathers a bit more, however

I like the idea of gel but this product just didn't help give me a better shave than my existing product. Smells nice though!

Good product

I don't really use a shaving cream, because I only shape up around my beard, but when this sample came of course I had to try it. I like the fact that it is pretty clear & see through - makes shaving & edging a bit easier.

Don't fear the foamless
Sampled

I have to admit I've always been skeptical of foamless shaving cream. When you've learned the hard way that lack of foam causes cuts, irritation, and burn it's a bit hard to try something new. I was really happy with how smooth the shave was and even more pleased by how my face felt afterwards. No cuts, no dryness, and no irritation. Great product.
