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.

Fantastic shave!
Sampled

I never shave against the grain but this product directions suggested it on a 2nd shave through and couldn't be happier! I am sitting here the next morning with a shave that still isn't coming through! The best part is there was no shave rash after going against the grain. There was a smoked smell to the product that I wasn't impressed with though on a product that is suppose to be scentless.

I have tried the art of shaving sample pack that comes with the pre-shave and the after shave as well as the brush. I still use the brush but have found out that, with my sensitive skin, this is not the product for me. It gives me terrible razor burn with just using the shaving cream. Used with the pre-shave oil, it is better, but I am not a fan of AofS. My father loves it and the sample will better suit him. I have found that with shaving creams/oils/lubes, you either love them or won't touch them again. For me, I wouldn't touch this again.

Nice to try something new!

I'm used to using the shaving cream I buy at the grocery store...never tried anything else. Getting this sample in my birchbox shipment gave me a chance to try something new...and I liked it. The cream allows for a nice shave and leaves my skin smooth!

Still unsure about this product
Sampled

I had already owned this product but I am still unsure on whether I like it or not. It makes for an easy shave but it caused irritation with my skin.

Good performer

I like to use the unscented when I have a particular aftershave balm in mind. AOS is a bit pricy but they're creams perform really well when you lather with a brush.

Nice!

I really like that it's unscented. It won't irritate my sensitive skin. It lathers thick. Good texture and doesn't leave skin dry afterwards. One of the better shaving creams that I've sampled through Birchbox. I'd definitely recommend it.

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.

So far so good. The scent wasn't overpowering. It gave me a nice close shave. The texture was nice, too!
