All too often, style and substance are mutually exclusive—it’s rare that the stuff that gets the job done also looks good doing it. One exception to the rule: the contents of this sleek matte black bottle. The hydrating formula goes on smooth and helps protect your skin while allowing for a close, clean shave. This superlubricating cream will also wash off the blade a lot easier than heavier and denser shaving agents.
It is possible that I was spoiled by the superior shaving cream from my previous box (Proraso), but this shaving cream just is not up to par. Using it with a shave brush, is counterproductive and does not give you a nice lather. Without a shave brother, it lathers to a degree, but no better( and sometimes even less than) any drugstore brand of shaving cream. Though the lather was small, it still did not allow for an incredibly close shave either. Other creams are just far too superior to this one to give it another try. I appreciate testing it out though.
One plus is that the cream does leave your skin feeling nice once you're shaven and cleaned off. It gives me an almost moisturized feeling to my face; and I did enjoy that.
All in all though, it isn't really worth the money and I would rather stick to Proraso.
As others have said the product smells great and leaves my skin feeling smooth, but I wish there was a little more lather to it. but I didnt think it left my skin feeling oily.4
I use a similar product I really like. This is a great travel size for when I am required to travel for business. May purchase in the future.4
Product has a good scent, works very well. Don't know if it is enough of an improvement from my previous shaving cream to switch.4
I like my shaving cream to have at least a little lather, and wasn't getting any here.1
I don't have anything against this product, per se... but I am still not sure if I am a big fan of the liquid shaving cream/gel/lotion. It is a bit greasy and and is tough to wash off the razor. On the flip side, it does provide a really close and nice shave. I usually shave first then shower, so I can wash my face in the shower (no greasy feel after). But may be different if you have a different shaving order.3
I really enjoyed this sample. It has an amazing citrus-like fragrance and performs as advertised --very smooth shave. There is one problem, however; it barely lathers. If you have a healthy amount of hair on your face, this is not an optimal product.4
It smelled good and worked alright... but it didn't lather very well and I had to use way too much at a time to get a good shave.2
So it smells great, goes on easy and provides a nice slick surface for shaving; however, it doesn't lather enough to be applied with a brush. Works best with your hands but I'd rather use a brush to apply shave cream, because, you know, it's just better.
One side note for cyclists, it actually works very well on legs.
I absolutely love the smell of this product! The lather is not super thick if that is what your looking for skip this product. However it does provide a nice slick surface, and my razor glides over my skin with this. I prefer this over the old school shave cream so many others reccommend.5
