We like the idea of using a badger brush every time we shave—in theory. The reality is that sometimes shaving happens in a hurry. For those days (read: most), there’s this creamy, brushless formula, which offers the same rich lather experience without all the equipment.
it didnt lather up well enough, was nice and creamy. has a pleasant smell and feels nice on the skin, but i need more when i am shaving.1
I used this and thought it was great. Goes on like lotion, and worked well with my sensitive skin. It would've been beneficial for the sample size to be a bit bigger so I could've used it a few times, but other than that I loved it.5
I really liked the smell, left my face smooth with minimal red bumps, did seem to have a very small amount of residual residue when finished shaving, but that seemed to clean off easily enough.4
It's not a horrible shave, but there are grocery store shave creams that do better. I found that it didn't even work much better than just using a preshave solution and no shaving cream.2
Second time I've been sent a sample of a shaving cream that didn't work so well. The first was another brand, Ernest Supplies.
I do my shaving process. I warm my shave mug. I make sure my badger brush is damp. I add a bit of shave cream, and attempt to create lather. Nothing happens. Add more shave cream. Re-attempt lather. Nothing happens. Now my brush is sticky, and needs to be cleaned. So it's back in the water. I retrieved my Dreadnought, and the world was once again back to normal, but a great normal with a perfect shave cream.
Through Birchbox, there are several shaving cream, gel, lotion-like options. I have to say that I found this to be below par. It didn't provide as clean of a shave as I would have expected. The fragrance is nice though.2
I found this shave cream went on a bit thin, and it had no scent. I found it did not dry out my skin, but it did not appear to have any other strong benefits.1
I wish the sample size was a little larger. But the creamy texture and smell were great. While I generally use a Badger Brush with Shaving cream for my weekly shaves, I like the idea of using this when I am in a rush and may not have time to go through the old school lengthy process. May consider using it in the future!4
I alternate between a badger brush full shave or a quick shave. There was a great distinction between the two but with products like this there is less of a difference. The product goes on smooth and covers great with a small amount. Very little lather which can be perplexing to some but allows for smooth, consistent razor strokes. Great to use for trimming around facial hair.4
I don't shave much and don't think spending a ton on average shaving cream is worth it. This product wasn't anything special.3
