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.

boyfriend is obsessed!
Purchased

So I bought this for my boyfriend. He's pretty addicted to the Art of Shaving shaving cream but I figured I would try this one out as something different. He LOVED it. He said it may be even better than the Art of Shaving one, though he hasn't fully committed that statement yet! Anyway, great buy.

concentrated quality
Purchased

Wow I also bought a badger brush.
Cream is so rich you just have to put a small amount on brush, work up a lather, apply to face.
Very softening!

Good old fashion shaving cream
SampledPurchased

At first I did not like the strong scent of sandalwood on my face but with everyday use I'm beginning to reverse into liking the cream very much . Will keep in mind when reordering shaving cream .

Won't shave without it

This item is one of the main reasons I shave with a safety razor. Love the smell and how well it lathers. Great product and the smell reminds me of my father teaching me to shave.

I purchased this for my husband's birthday. He loves it! The smell is wonderful, and he says it makes the razor glide effortlessly over his face.

Great Scent
Purchased

Love the Sandalwood scent of this shaving cream. When applying it to the face it makes a rich lather.
It's easy to use and as I said it leaves a pleasing scent which others have remarked on. I will be purchasing it again before I run out.

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.

Amazing Shave Cream

By far the best shaving cream I've received from Birchbox, and by far the only one that I will order again.
