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.

I am floored by the other reviews on this product claiming that it was effective. This product barely lathers up and if you have anything more than stubble, it pulls the hair and produces razor burn. The cooling effect that the product leaves after the shave is nice and does help subside the burn, but the burn should never really have been there in the first place. I would only consider this product for camping or traveling light. The sample size only had about three shaves in it.

nice scent but ineffective
Sampled

After using the sample, twice to shave with and once as a pre-shave, it just didn't really work for me. Currently I use Proraso pre-shave and shaving cream which is one of the best combinations I've found. This product, while it as a really nice scent, didn't lather up to leave a smooth surface for my razor to glide across. When using it as a shaving cream, it seemed I had to constantly re-wet my face to keep the product from drying out. The result is my razor dragged across my skin instead of gliding. When I used this as a pre-shave and layered the Proraso on top of it, it still felt like the Ernest product was causing the razor to grab at my skin.

Seems like a great product.

I do not really have the need to shave all that often, but this product seems like a great addition to a travel bag.

This stuff didn't offer me anything different. In fact, I think my cheap stuff works better. For the price there is no way I would ever buy this stuff. Menthal was nice though.

Not good for me

This product did not provide enough lubrication to make the razor glide smoothly. It provided hardly any moisture to my skin. I'm used to another product and a brush shave. The advertized time saved is not worth it for the resulting irritation. However the menthol is very pleasant, and this product would probably be good for tougher skin and/or thinner facial hairs.

Didn't work well

I shave my head and face every morning. This didn't provide sufficient comfort/ protection. And the lack of lather- may not be important, but seems "lacking."

Led to a good shave, however as a straight razor user the menthol involved could be very bad as it is a numbing agent. I may be bizarre but when I have a piece of metal that is as sharp as a razor at my throat I generally appreciate the feed back from my skin.

Ernest Supplies Shave Cream
Sampled

Ernest Supplies Shave Cream, this was really more of a shave gel than shave cream. It basically goes on clear and does not lather up. I like citrus smelling products but this seemed to be like a sour lemon. The product did leave my face with a cooling sensation
