ERNEST SUPPLIES Cooling Shave Cream - 3 oz.

When Ernest Supplies set out to improve upon classic shaving cream, they looked to another shower workhorse: hair conditioner. This low-lather formula contains jojoba, macadamia nut, and babassu oils, which condition beard hair for easy removal while nourishing the skin beneath. Meanwhile, cooling oils of menthol and eucalyptus eliminate razor burn and the need for an aftershave.

Unimpressive
Sampled

Wasn't too impressed with this product. As someone who shaves while in the shower (it's just more convenient), this product didn't lather enough to stay on through the occasional water spritz. Didn't provide a good smooth shave either.

lots of menthol
Sampled

Putting this on my face felt like rubbing it with icy hot. The menthol is not my thing at all. I accidentally nicked my face because all I felt was the menthol tingle and I just wanted to finish shaving asap and wash my face.

This has not been the best shave cream I have tried. I had to use a lot of the product to get a good creamy lather. I haven't shaved in two days, so just a little stubble to cover. The smell was to soapy for my scent.

Not good

I cannot recommend this shave cream. The scent is gross and the texture is odd.

"I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. " - Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

Bateman may not be a great role model, but he knows his skin care. But the second and third ingredients in this product were both alcohols. This initial cooling sensation is nice, but after shaving, my skin instantly felt tight and dry.

On the positive side, it smells great and gave a surprisingly good shave despite the lack of lather.

Stick with sample

Awesome product but product size and packaging not worth money spent. The full size product is not much larger than the sample size and the packing is exactly the same. You will enjoy the sample as the actual product is awesome but you'll kick yourself for overspending if you purchase the full size.

Decent product.
Sampled

It's shave cream. Yes, some shave creams feel nice, but overall, it's just shave cream. It doesn't lather much and I'm a fan of of the lather.

Not good for a thicker beard

This is a very light* shaving cream, much too light for my grizzly stubble when I shave. I suppose if you shave everyday that this product may provide a nice cooling sensation for a quick shave. The fact is, the cream is just not powerful enough and does not lather well at all. The cooling sensation also gets rather irritating IMHO if shaving takes you a while. Could be nice for a particular person with the right shaving habits

effective coolant
Sampled

The packaging of the product is very nice for traveling and it does have a nice cooking effect, but I prefer shaving creams with more lather. I will continue to use as an aftershave.
