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.

I don't think unscented means this...

When it comes to The Art of Shaving, I'm generally a happy guy as most of their products are top shelf, but this particular shaving cream, in my opinion, is not one of their better products. It is fairly smooth and easy on the skin, but the "unscentedness" of it is anything but. It smells of cocoa butter and a little bit of chocolate, an odd combination, I know, which is exactly why I'm not a fan... other than that one complaint, the cream works great. Were it scented or anything else, I would've given this 4 or 5 stars.

this gave me a really nice shave, however it was not good for my sensitive skin afterward. it made me breakout, so i'm not going to use it again.

Sample size is great for small shavers
Sampled

I like my beard, so I really only shave my neck and clean up my edges a little so I don't need a ton of product to make that happen. The sample size was great, I don't think I'll need to buy shaving cream until my next shaving cream sample haha

On the fence

I'm still on the fence about the scent of this shaving cream. The texture is nice and thick and it seems to work well for as infrequently as I shave. Maybe I'm just used to different smells from my shave cream. I don't dislike it...I find it intriguing, but can't quite say I like it. Yet.

above average product, but not excellent
Sampled

This product was above average- def a couple notches above the standard drug store shave creams. It wasn't as smooth of a shave I have enjoyed with other products and left my skin a little dry. Overall, still a decent product and a great first step into high end shaving products.

Art of Shaving Knows Best

These guys specialize in this area - so yeah they are going to get it right. Nothing flashy, but this cream stays true and gives a very comfortable shave. Take it from me - the guy with 40 types of creams in my cabinet and I just switch between them weekly - never satisfied. Art of Shave comes through.

This product was pretty neat. But I didn't find it to be more effective than other shaving creams I have used.

It was a good but it reminded me of any other shaving cream. I appreciate the opportunity to try something new. Thanks Birchbox
