I was excited to try this shaving product, but ended up being a little disappointed. First, the application of the "cream" is not what I wanted. I'm used to building up a nice lather with my creams, I did not get this. The packaging suggests to use a badger brush, but I thought it was more effective to use my hands. I was able to produce a very thin layer of protection which made the shave feel like I was only using water. I did not cut myself, so the product did protect, but the lack of lather made me weary.
I thought the highlight of the cream came from the "healing properties." After my first pass with a safety razor and before the second, I could already feel the cream taking effect on my skin. It was very soothing.
My only other complaint is the smell. It wasn't substantial, but I am not a big fan of peppermint. It's not an over powering smell, but it was enough that I was turned off by it.
Overall, the product was okay. I would not purchase it, but it was a goo sample.
