Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Super Slick Shave Cream

This slick shave cream is just as notable for what it doesn'’t contain— as for what it does—. Free of harsh culprits like alcohol, benzocaine, and menthol, it uses water-soluble micro-silicone beads to minimize razor drag, nicks, and ingrown hairs. The conditioning cream formula also softens beards and even extends the life of your razor blade. No wonder it earned top marks from Esquire and is a favorite of George Clooney, Ben Affleck, and James Franco.

gunked up my razor

This is not the pre-shave for me. Gunked up my razor every time. DSC razor if you were wondering.

Slimy

The good thing about this product is that it grabs up all your hair as you shave, so that rinsing is a breeze. The bad thing is the texture. It is not creamy or foamy or even like a gel based lubricant, the best I can describe it is Slime. Gross

Works well, smells odd

This product works quite well giving me a smooth shave with no irritation. My only problem is that the smell is a bit off. I can't place it exactly, but it is not appealing to me. Fortunately, the fragrance doesn't linger so it is only a temporary inconvenience.

A great product line.

I have heard of The Billy Jealousy product line, and have owned a few of their products. This product I enjoyed, I wasn't sure what to expect. But it worked well and delivered a close shave.

Decent shave cream

I traveled this weekend and made good use of this shaving cream sample. It left my skin soft and prevented razor burn (mostly).

I like shaving soap better

I have to say the "silicone micro-beads" concern me. I don't know how environmentally safe they are. I didn't feel like this shaving lotion was all that effective. Normally I use a brush and some Proraso shaving soap. I like a lather and I like being able to clearly see where I need shave still. I like the smell of Proraso. This product has little smell and is hard to see on your skin. I would not buy it or recommend it. I just don't find it to be better than shaving cream or soap.

Typical billy

I feel like I have had the opportunity to try just about every billy jealousy product available. I feel the same way about them as I did with the first sample. They are a very reliable brand, there just isn't anything that would make me want to spend the extra money over an average grocery store product.

Amazing!

This stuff like most products from Billy Jealousy has a nice dude scent. The kind of dude scent that say yeah I am a dude and not your non-threating male friend who smells a little like lavender with a touch of kiwi.

Plus it works just as well as foamy shaving cream with no white residue. It is like you are just putting on lotion and your razor just magically glides down your face.
