Birchbox Breakdown

When your dad taught you how to shave with that razor he’d removed the blades from, he was hoping that you’d grow up to use a shaving cream like this. This classic softens and lifts beard hairs, while simultaneously soothing and moisturizing your skin. Add some Sandalwood aromatherapy to the mix, and you’ve got something that is pops-approved.

How to Use

You can spread this rich cream with your hands, but The Art of Shaving® and Birchbox Man strongly recommend using a shaving brush—specifically one made out of badger hair. After applying a thick lather, go with the grain on your first pass, then re-lather and do a second run against or perpendicular to the grain.

So fantastic!
Purchased

This product feels like a luxury when using. I have sensitive skin and have to be careful with what I put on my face. My skin is smooth and there is no post shaving irritation.

Doesn't clog razor
Purchased

Husband and I both use the entire Art of Shaving line (I skip the after-shave balm on my legs), so at first I wasn't sure if it was the pre-shave oil or the shaving cream which allowed my razor to rinse off more easily. But I ran out of shaving cream and used another brand... razor was clogged again. I also enjoy that these products don't make my sensitive skin dry or itchy at all as other shave creams can.

The Art of Shaving remains the best!
Purchased

I have used this brand of shaving products for several years now. I have tried others, thinking I should expand my horizons. So far I have tried nothing that I enjoy more than Art of Shaving. Great product, fair price!

Wonderful Product
Purchased

I have been buying this product for my boyfriend for quite some time. He loves it, he said it is the best shave he has ever had. It leaves his face very soft and smooth. The sandalwood smells so wonderful.

strongly scented but keeps skin soft
Purchased

My husband loves using this shaving cream. It protects his sensitive skin well, and the scent while strong in the container is not overpowering after the shave.

Great for anyone

Great shaving cream, best I've ever used. It made the shave a lot easier than any other brand I've used.

Perfect for my husband!
Purchased

My husband can grow quite the beard, but unfortunately, due to his job he has to be clean shaven. It's a bummer for him because he has pretty sensitive skin on his face and shaving with drugstore brands always left him with razor burn and sometimes ingrown hairs. His parents gifted him an Art of Shaving kit for Christmas one year and he will never go back to using any other product. The sandalwood scent is his favorite and we were so excited to find it on Birchbox because now I can get points from ordering it here and pay the same price as we would elsewhere. Thanks Birchbox for carrying this product! We will be ordering it regularly as long as you have it.

Best shaving cream ever

The Art of Shaving Sandalwood shaving cream is old world, lush wonderful shaving cream. There is no other shaving cream with the refreshing after-feel, aroma or lather as this product.

Amazing shaving cream

This shaving cream is great. It works best with a brush and creates a really good lather. Unlike other premium shaving creams, this doesn't get stuck to your razor and washes off easily.
