Prone to razor burn? Consider downgrading your five-blade to a three-blade. For most even a two-blade will suffice.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Wash your face with warm water, then use your hands to apply a thin layer of cream. Gently massage a small amount until creamy. Shave, rinse, and you’re ready to go.

It's ok
Sampled

It's ok, but nothing to really write home about. I used the sample-size container sent to me via Birchbox, however when I was finished with it I went back to my typical shaving cream found at most retailers and didn't think twice about the change. I found that the product didn't lather as much as I would have liked. I don't want a full lather that tends to make more of a mess than necessary, but I also don't want a product that makes me wonder if I've accidentally put lotion on my face instead of shaving cream.

The shaving cream was a bit thick going on. However I will say that my skin feels much more moisturized after the use of this creme.

This shave cream was nothing to write home about. It doesn't really stand out from any others I have used.

This is a different approach to how you get your shaving cream but it is nice how soft your skin feels with it. As far as the shave goes their seems to be little to no irritation so I would say this is an above average product.

Feels thick

Not a big fan of this one. The shave was fine, nothing more, and it takes a while to get it off your skin.

Clean shave, but...

The cream has a good feel and provides good protection for shaving. But it does not rinse off the razor easily, which slows down the process. I don't find it practical for this reason.

Me likey

I like this shaving cream, if you use a cream give this one a try. I had not tried this brand before I received the sample in a monthly box.

Good, but not my favorite

Overall it was just okay. It comes creamy, so you do not need a brush to get a good lather. However, I prefer to use another shaving cream and lathering with water, compared to this.

No Razor Burn

Honestly this may be the best shaving cream I have used. I have tried everything to try and reduce razor burn and ingrown hairs, but nothing seemed to work. I was able to get 4 shaves out of the sample, and had the same great result each time. I would recommend this product to anyone who has had the same issue as myself.

Loved it

I have a pretty sensitive neck/chin area, and often have razor burn after a shave.

This shave cream really left me with a smooth shave. I loved it!
