Prep your scruff for the perfect shave with Game Day’s Pre-Shave Invigorating Scrub.

Birchbox Breakdown

We’ll admit: Drugstore shave foam comes with a certain nostalgic quality. Still, it isn’t doing your skin any favors. Consider instead this botanical-rich formula, which contains healing sandalwood, soothing aloe, and antiaging green tea extract, lathering up thick for a smooth, comfortable shave. Nothing will satisfy your nostalgic longings quite like a strong—and perfectly smooth—jawline.

How to Use

Splash your face with water or apply a damp, warm towel. Work a small amount of cream into your scruff until a thick lather forms, then shave as usual.

Water, potassium myristate, potassium stearate, sodium myristate, sodium stearate, glycerin, carthamus tinctorius (hybrid safflower) seed oil, fragrance, aloe barbadensis leaf juice*, betaglucan, symphytum officinale (comfrey), calendula officinalis, camellia oleifera (green tea) hydrastis Canadensis (golden seal) root extracts; tocopheryl (vitamin E) acetate, cholecalciferol (vitamin D), retinyl (vitamin A) palmitate, zea mays (corn) oil, hydroxyethylcellulose, sorbic acid

Not For Me

The initial texture of the cream is actually quite nice. Where I had an issue was that it seemed to dry or stiffen fairly quickly and as a slow shaver, it didn't meet my needs. If you shave in the shower where the steam might keep it moist a while longer, it may work for you. I'll pass on this one. Not bad, just not for me.

A good shave cream

I wet shave with a brush, so this sample was better than most I've gotten so far. It says brushless on the jar, but it lathers nicely using one. The lather was a little thicker than I normally like, but it felt good on my face and I got a good shave.

Effective, not very special.

I liked this product because it works and it does everything it purports to do. It's good for the skin, it helps me keep a close shave, and it left my skin soft. That being said, I was excited about the possibility of a sandalwood fragrance that I didn't get, bit some folks might be more excited that this product doesn't really have a fragrance to speak of. Also, I've never been too keen on shaving creams that come in jars. They're clunky and hard to deal with in the shower.

Not Blown Away

Nothing special in terms of shaving cream. I don't like the container; I would prefer a squeeze tube.

Underwhelmed

This shave cream has a beautiful pearly color that immediately catches the eye when you first open it. However, it is just as good as any drugstore shaving cream and it didn't do anything extraordinary for my skin.

Husband loves it!
Purchased

My husband received a sample of this in his birchbox and fell in love. I ordered him the full size jar and it's lasted almost 6 months and he shaves 3 times a week.

light and fluffy

very light and non greasy. let the razor glide across my face and helped prevent irritation on my sensitive skin. very nice feel, but slightly difficult to wash off my hands.
