Schulz & Malley Brushless Shave Cream

Old-timers might swear by a four-step shave, but some men prioritize results over rituals. For those who shave without a brush, this cream offers the closest cut this side of a badger hair. Its botanical formula stands up stubble, while soothing skin to get the jump on postshave irritation. After all, while you may not have time for a barbershop shave, you deserve the same results.

Not a fan

The cream is thick and does not work with water. It is paste like which is strange for a shaving cream. If you want a good shave with this product you will need to use a very hefty sample size.

Very gummy

This sample came as a surprise men's gift when I purchased a product. I gave it to my husband who usually shaves with shave cream (foam). He hated it but was not specific other than to say he disliked the scent. So I tried it on my legs. I am not a fan either. The texture is gummy and the scent is not appealing. Besides that, it is difficult to rinse off the razor between strokes. Pass for me.

Awesome smell, terrible texture

Stuck to the blade, clogged the sink. I gave it to my wife to shave her legs in the tub.

Would not buy again :(

I tried the sample in BirchBox. I use safety razor and I guess it has a oily quality to it that does not give me the lather I need. Using it with a different razor didn't help either (for me at least). I like the smell but didn't like the shave.

Sticks to blade

It's true that this cream does not need to be applied with a brush. It forms a rich lather that covered my face in a thick layer of foam. The problem I had with this is that it sticks to my 3-blade razor...like glue. I found myself rinsing for 10 seconds after each stroke on my face. Ultimately I had to carefully use my fingers to remove the sticky cream from the blades in order to take the next stroke. If you have ever used a pre-shave oil before, this is very similar to how it clogs the blades. It would probably be a fantastic shaving cream for use with a straight razor, but anything with more blades would simply be a hassle.

Mildly disappointing

I say this only in relation to the Schulz & Malley face wash, which is easily a front-runner for best product I've received from Birchbox. So, you see, my expectations were high, but unfortunately this shaving cream didn't meet them.

The problem: it takes a lot to work up a lather. I have a thick-ish beard, so I tend to lather, shave with the grain, then lather and shave against to get as smooth a face. But it takes a significant amount of cream (particularly noticeable in a sample size, of course) to get the kind of lather that comes fairly easily with other high-end shaving creams.

So: Confident in the brand and perfectly happy to try other products (again, seriously, try out their facewash, it's great), but this one didn't quite hit the mark.

This shave cream is creamy and I am use to foam gel so this product wasn't really for me.

I prefer a brush
Sampled

This product would be good for me if I just started out with a new shave regimen. Brushless works great if I'm on the road, but my normal routine has been forever changed with The Art of Shaving pre shave, brush, and after shave balm. Would like to see them make a product that uses a brush so I can try then side by side.
