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.

wasn't for me
Sampled

I feel like it was a good product but I have very sensitive skin and didn't think it worked for me. I didn't think it made it a more comfortable shave. May work for others, but didn't quite do it for me.

I liked the smell, but did not like the texture. I rather use an oil and a cream.

Didnt work well for me ..
Sampled

Keep in mind I was just using a sample here, but the product really didn't live up to the hype.

I did fall in love with the "Art of Shaving" so maybe I got spoiled here before trying this one out.

The overall application of this wasn't very lathery as I followed instructions to the letter to ensure a proper shave. The first shave was very very rough and I got more of the "cooling" effect vs a good shave.

I honestly thought this was an aftershave cream and had to read the label a couple times before I smacked myself.

I take shaving my ultra lux mug very very seriously. If you are like me, then this product just won't cut it.

this product smelled great, however, I prefer a shaving cream that lathers up better than this. This felt like more of a lotion than a shaving cream.

The shaving cream was great,
except the lather was to thin for my corse hair.

Good but not great

I have sensitive skin and this is not as good as some other products. I love the scent but this wasn't for me.

A mediocre pre-shave lotion, no a mediocre shave cream, no an aftershave...
Sampled

Pro: The packaging of this product is unique and looks great. The sample size is perfect for taking a carry-on luggage kit.

Con: This product suffers from an identity crisis. It's packaging indicates that it is a pre-shave lotion, shaving cream, and aftershave. It accomplishes the first two with middling results and outright fails at the third. As a shaving cream it is pretty good. It's better than most, but, is nowhere near the level of Cremo Cream or Proraso.

Decent Shave
Sampled

When I first put this on my face it felt almost like vicks vapor rub. It did provide a nice shave but the "cooling" effect was a little too much for me.

Bad Shave
Sampled

Positive: It has a good aroma. Leaves skin smooth.

Negative: You need to use a lot to cover face. The packaging is weird and inconvenient (unless used for travel). It does not cool skin, in fact it actually burned my skin. There is barely enough cream in the sample for one shave, which makes me think the full product would not be worth the money.

Okay

It smells great, feels great, but in the end it didn't translate into a great shave for me. Too much drag. It may potentially work better for others.
