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.

Meh

I love love love billy jealousy products. Hair products specifically. For my shaving needs, this product isn't for me. Not the smoothest of shaves. Not bad either though. A step up from. Drug store brands. But other shaving gels I prefer.

Solution to my shaving problem

I have very sensitive skin for shaving and this is the first product that hasn't left me with razor burn or other shaving related problems.

Smooth shave

Decent product. Super slick like everyone says, but Im not too much of a fan of nonlathering shave creams

My Bald Head

This stuff is some of the best shave cream, lotion, balm, or whatever I've used for my head. I bic it about twice a week and have to say that my shave time has been cut down significantly and I have yet to suffer razor burn or in-growns as a result. This stuff is magical.

Smooth and Invisible

This product worked fine, although I like seeing shaving cream to track where I've already shaved and this went on almost clear.

A bit slippery

I found this product just a little too slimy/slippery. Other than that, it was ok

Nice

I usually use electric so this isn't particularly relevant but seems decent.

A slick shave

Provides a nice shave similar to other silicone or cream based shaving products.

A little too smooth

This product delivers on the promise of a smooth shave, but I found the lubricant so slick that the razor couldn't adequately do its job. It glided over hair and skin alike, forcing me to go back over some spots several times. You need a close shave, not just a smooth one.

More Microbeads

This time the microbeads are silicone. They may be microbeads which settle out, but there are still much better choices.

That said ...

I am not a huge fan of non-lathering shave creams, though this one is the most effective I have ever tried. But it's more about maintaining moisture than anything else.
