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.

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.

Nice Lather, Brush or Brushless
Sampled

I enjoyed this cream, and lathered with a brush. I sampled the Unscented version. I just like other brands of shaving creams better.

Good product, but doesn't blow my mind
Sampled

Don't get me wrong, this is a really great shaving cream, but there have been some other brands in my box over the last couple of months that I prefer to this, especially for the price.

This is an above average shaving cream. It works into a nice thick lather, but I was hoping that it would provide a bit more lubrication for shaving. I'll stick with the GO247 product I received in a previous box.

Really Good
Sampled

I really like this shaving cream, particularly if used with a badger shaving brush. Without this brush, it's actually a pretty average shaving brush, but otherwise its superb. I wasn't that thrilled with the unscented version.
