All too often, style and substance are mutually exclusive—it’s rare that the stuff that gets the job done also looks good doing it. One exception to the rule: the contents of this sleek matte black bottle. The hydrating formula goes on smooth and helps protect your skin while allowing for a close, clean shave. This superlubricating cream will also wash off the blade a lot easier than heavier and denser shaving agents.

Used the sample that came with the "summer special" Birchbox that was $48. The smell is nice. The fact that it does not make a foamy mess is nice. What I did not like is that contrary to the description above, the cream did not come off of the blade that well. In fact, it was VERY hard to get the blade clean. Maybe a fresh blade would yield better rinsing results?
Overall, it's a great product.
Compared to products you might purchase at any basic store, this stuff is great. Compared to other Birchbox shaving cream samples, however, this product is my least favorite. The price isn't bad, but I definitely think there are better options on this website. Give it a try though, you won't regret it.
silky smooth shaves
Bought the full size product after getting the sample in birch box. i still love it, use it sparingly to not use too much. close shaves.
it's shaving cream
it's good shave cream but at the end of the day it's not much more than that really. sure it looks better than the cans of the other stuff but that's where it's advantages end.
It helps with shaving... it also could use an assistant
- Smells intriguing, people will find you intriguing as a result
- Goes on easily and foamily
- Keeps the razor from completely obliterating your face
- Cleans up really easily
- Smells intriguing, may clash with everything else you use
- Foams only slightly, not advisable for any razors that don't come with safety measures
- It seems as though it should have more stable coverage,
I use a straight razor and a standard razor, depending on where I am. In the unfortunate circumstance that you're stranded on a desert island and only have this and a straight razor, you'll be fine, but you'll also wonder if the bottle is accidentally filled with really thick shampoo instead of shaving cream.
When I think cream, I think "whoops, who let the whipped cream party start over here?" I think that because of previous experiences with, let's say, more foamy shaving creams.
This is not one of those shaving creams. This is meant to be smooth, slick, and get out of the way quickly. It does that quite well, especially the getting out of the way quickly part. It gets out of the way so quickly that by the time you get the razor to your face, you wonder what exactly happened to all the work you put into getting the cream on your face.
That is, it disappears quickly under pressure, and does a decent job for the first 30 seconds of shaving. An approach I'd recommend is to use it on half your face, then the other half, or even quarters... possibly eighths.
What I'm saying is if you're bad at fractions and ratios, this may not be the product for you. Then again, if you are bad at fractions and ratios, you should just buy 20 of them and not worry about it, as you'll probably lather up using a third of a bottle, and have the smoothest skin since butter was invented.
Not bad, but I'm not changing brands
This product was okay, it worked well. My skin felt fine after I was done shaving but it's not a life changing product by any stretch. The one thing that I personally didn't like is that I couldn't see where it was applied on my face. I wasn't sure if I had covered my face, then once I had shaved I wasn't sure where I had and hadn't covered. Maybe that's a small thing but it bugged me. Please keep in mind that I'm using other products that I've learned of from Birchbox, not the $.99 can of foam my dad uses. It's a good product that I keep in my travel bag but I probably won't be ordering more any time soon.
Great for Sensitive Skin
So this product has been great on my skin that I had to come review it. If you have sensitive skin and shaving often leaves you with razor burn or tiny bumps, this stuff is the solution to your problems! Looking forward to more products from GO 24/7.
I really enjoyed this product. I thought it smelled nice and loved the formula. It was thick and creamy. I thought the consistency was great.
By far great Shave Cream
This shave cream if by far one of the best I have ever used. It has a great smell and using it every day doesn't cause my face to break out.
Before BirchBox I've only used one type of shaving cream. Now I use the ones I get in the box. This has been my favorite. It isn't sticky like others it is just a great cream that smells good while giving me a close shave and leaving my skin feeling hydrated. Perfect, high class shaving cream.
