The Art of Shaving® Shaving Cream

When your dad taught you how to shave with that razor he’d removed the blades from, he was hoping that you’d grow up to use a shaving cream like this. This classic softens and lifts beard hairs, while simultaneously soothing and moisturizing your skin. Add some Sandalwood aromatherapy to the mix, and you’ve got something that is pops-approved.

Nothing special

I already owned this product and already didnt love it. I purchased a different scent (sandalwood), which I did not like. This specific Birchbox sample was unscented, I did not like this scent either. Its an OK product, Ill stick to other Birchbox recommended shaving creams.

best on the market

for a company that devoted to shaving cream, they do it best. i have never found a product that feels smoother and softer than The Art.

Great Product
Sampled

I have the entire ensemble for the Art of Shaving. It has greatly helped my skin (especially razor burn on my neck). I was a skeptic at first, but now I use it religiously.

Pretty good

In my opinion, its better than the foam can stuff that you get from the store but I am currently a dedicated user for the Proraso brand. I think the proraso has a better after shave feeling.

average

This is average shave cream, it's good for the price, but there are better options out there. I like the lavender scent more than the unscented

Excellent cream
Sampled

I've been using The Art of Shaving products for years, and the only cream I've come across that I like better (or at least has equal quality for less price) is the Proraso brand also sold on this site. You are certainly paying a premium for the name, thanks to some rather excellent marketing, but it's a solid product. I would, however, recommend a scent that you like. Unscented is... boring.

Best shave cream ever!
Sampled

This shaving cream is the winner of the June box. The shaving cream creates a very slippery surface on your face while softening your facial hair to make it easier to cut. It also takes a very small amount of product to shave with so the price is pretty good. I have been looking for a good shave cream and this is it, thanks Birchbox! One note, the "unscented" version does have a bit of a smoky cork board smell to it, it's actually kind of nice but I would not call it unscented.

Clean shave
Sampled

I don't shave often with a blade/cream as I tend to leave some stubble with a beard trimmer. After getting this as a sample, I decided to give it a go and shave my whole face. Oftentimes my skin gets irritated but it did not with this shave cream. Not a huge fan of the "unscented" smell as it still has some scent - I would like to try the Sandalwood scent if I were to purchase. Does its job and leaves the skin smooth, can't ask for much more.
