The Art of Shaving® Shaving Cream

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.

Fine Shave

I thought this cream worked pretty well. I liked the texture, and how close of a shave I received afterwards. However, it doesn't seem special enough to warrant a $25 price tag.

Effective yet odd smell
Sampled

Everything was great and all the reviews are right a little does go a long way but I just do not like the way it smells. I know its supposed to unscented but it isn't and its unsettling to me.

Smooth


My husband raves about this line of products. He regularly grows out a bear and then shaves it off every few months. He has extremely sensitive skin and this is one of the only products that doesn't make him break out when he shaves.

Worked ok
Sampled

Felt like the shave was ok. Didn't care as much for the sandalwood smell, and texture seemed ok but I've had closer shaves.

Good Shave Cream
Sampled

This is a really good shave cream - lathers up nicely and provides a close shave. "Unscented" seems like a strange qualification though because it smelled weird to me - perhaps adding a scent would be better.

shave cream

I haven't tried this, it doesn't smell as good as some of the others I have received and I have so many shaving cream samples through birchbox that just seem better

Does what it advertises, though at a premium.

I like the combination of using the shaving oil, cream, and after-shave lotion. I have the lemon scent, which is nice and fresh.

No complaints, get a badger-hair brush to lather up and apply after rubbing some oil into your face. Definitely gives a way better shave than the 2-1 stuff from a can.

Successful Shave
Sampled

I really liked this shave cream, but I have plenty of stock, so I'm not looking to buy. I like the sample size and will take it when I go away for a mini vacation this weekend. It leaves skin smooth after shaving and not itchy at all.

Works well
Sampled

Brought this sample to yoga class and used it afterwards before getting ready for the day, worked well, no complaints, but nothing extraordinary about it. Smooth texture, washed off easily.

used 10+ years
Sampled

I have used this for 10+ years. Loved it when I started using it, always use the art of shaving brush.(always unscented)! I have tried many other high end samples in 2013 and I will say, others are just as good. Personal preference will prevail.
