Vitamine & Sea Shaving Cream

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.

great lather - works well with a shave brush - helps irritation

Weird to Shave With

I liked the idea of a high end shaving cream, especially as I was heading into Movember and needed to keep my cheeks and neck clean while the rest of my beard went wild. This product though felt weird to shave with.

Shaving sensation
Sampled

This shaving cream tingles, but in a good way. I liked it's texture, very silky and smooth which is how your face or any area will feel after shaving

Like the idea of, but no need...
Sampled

Really like the ingredients and the idea of the product, but I use an electric shaver. I try to be innovative though and use this in other ways.

Not Bad
Sampled

This product is unscented, which I appreciate. Goes on as a thin film, with no lather. I got a reasonably close shave after two passes with a safety razor. This stuff doesn't really rinse out of the blade though...I'll either have to leave the gunk in there or take the razor apart to clean it. Ended up with a couple nicks and slight irritation, which is rare for me (usually use Proraso). It could be a good option for traveling when I don't want to mess with a brush, but I'm not sure it is worth the high price.

Don't be fooled by no lather

This stuff doesn't lather up like Barbasol, but it still does a great job: offers a smooth shave without drying my skin out.

Nice cream
Sampled

My husband liked this cream - and it left his face very smooth. It is a little pricey but may be nice as a little beauty treat every once in a while.

Good, but expensive
Sampled

I received this in the November box. I've always used a gel in the past and am used to the full beard of generously applied lather. This on the other hand was a thin layer that i could barely see. I was beginning to wonder how much i would feel as the razor cut through during the shave.
I am surprised to say it was an incredibly smooth shave, not the closest ive had, but it left my skin feeling incredibly smooth afterwards which is nice.
If the product wasn't so expensive I would gladly purchase it, but for the difference i couldnt see myself dropping $40 on some shaving gel.

Best. Shave. Ever.
Sampled

I've always used a shave gel from a can, so this was a totally new experience for me. It made my skin feel great and delivered an unreal shave. I don't think my face has ever been smoother. I've been looking for similar products in stores since sampling and haven't found anything similar, so I will be purchasing soon. Only negative I see with this is the price but it's probably worth it and I'd imagine a jar gives you a ton of shaves. I got three out of the sample.
