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.

Great for anyone

Great shaving cream, best I've ever used. It made the shave a lot easier than any other brand I've used.

Perfect for my husband!
Purchased

My husband can grow quite the beard, but unfortunately, due to his job he has to be clean shaven. It's a bummer for him because he has pretty sensitive skin on his face and shaving with drugstore brands always left him with razor burn and sometimes ingrown hairs. His parents gifted him an Art of Shaving kit for Christmas one year and he will never go back to using any other product. The sandalwood scent is his favorite and we were so excited to find it on Birchbox because now I can get points from ordering it here and pay the same price as we would elsewhere. Thanks Birchbox for carrying this product! We will be ordering it regularly as long as you have it.

Best shaving cream ever
Purchased

The Art of Shaving Sandalwood shaving cream is old world, lush wonderful shaving cream. There is no other shaving cream with the refreshing after-feel, aroma or lather as this product.

This is the ONLY shaving cream my husband will use. He has super sensitive skin and every other kind he's ever used irritated him. My husband is not a big spender but this is the one item he doesn't bat an eye to spend more on. If you have sensitive skin and are on the fence, just buy it already!

This shaving cream is the best. For twenty five dollars this is king. Nice smooth frothy shave and then your skin feels fantastic afterwards.

The Grail of Shave Creams!!!
Purchased

My husband's poor face was as rough as sandpaper, and we've tried everything on the market to find something he could shave with and not dry out his skin any more. We both love sandalwood on him so, as a last resort, I spent big for a travel set of The Art of Shaving in Sandalwood and hoped for the best. The set came with the brush, so he dove in, skeptically--horrified at what I spent on the set. To our relief, and delight, he emerged from his shave soft, smooth and smelling sassy.

This is high-grade cream, and high-quality fragrance. He found that, with the brush and daily shaving, that one jar lasts him about four months. Of course, I bought 2 more jars from Birchbox to cover him for a year. It works out well, because he can't use the lotion and oil on his face, so the rest of the kit will be used for his hands or legs if he gets dry. So all we need to buy is the shaving cream. Small price to pay for what we've spent on razors, lotions, creams, foams, and all the other nonsense. God forbid this item is discontinued.

I might try the Unscented or the Lavender for my own shaving needs. He raves about this stuff, and so do I for what it's done for his skin. A definite keeper.

I completely loved this product. It was convenient and completely performed as advertised. I highly recommend it for the guy on the go, who cares about how he looks.

I use the entire line of AOS products in my shaving routine. This shave cream smells great and lathers up well and facilitates a smooth awesome shave. Close, moisturized and soothed. Excellent product!

My guy won't shave with anything else now
Purchased

Since my guy discovered Art of Shaving about a year ago, he flatly refuses to shave with anything else. Which is good for both of us, because otherwise he has extremely dry skin, flakes, and painful red ingrowns, and since he's started using Art of Shaving religiously he looks SO much better and more comfortable. He moisturizes afterwards with Lucky Tiger and looks great. Plus the packaging looks classy and masculine next to the sink. And I can't say I don't steal it for my legs for special occasions, though I really can't justify the price right now for shaving legs with this daily!

Oh, also for any guys rocking the Captain Picard and the ladies who love them, mine uses this on his whole scalp (what's left on it) as well as his beard. Great for that purpose too.
