I used to be that guy who shaved with the common shaving cream that every man probably uses. Honestly, there is no better shave. For someone with sensitive skin such as myself I can always rely to not only get a close shave, but have my skin feeling extremely smooth and smelling amazing. I breakout rarely now and am able to get smooth skin that lasts a while too! I am not shaving as frequent as usual and that is always a plus for someone as busy as me. The starter kit led me to buying and investing in the more expensive product. Honestly worth the buy!

Beau says it smells funny
Purchased

He likes the brush, but I think it's a bit scratchy. He doesn't like the unscented smell.. I agree with that--it does smell off! The cream doesn't foam up as much as we'd like also.

4 Elements Starter Kit
Purchased

This isn't my first experience with this product. So needless to say, it is a purchase I am making a second time. That should say something for it before I say anything else.

I like this little starter kit because it is perfect to purchase and toss into a travel bag for my toiletry items. Just because I am "on the go" doesn't mean I should sacrifice a good shave. I actually enjoy shaving, so the more creature comforts I have for such, the better.

The lather brush I could honestly take or leave for my personal purposes and preferences, but I do like the pre shave oil, the shaving cream, and the post shave lotion.

I also like the sandalwood scent. I enjoy more earthy scents that aren't screaming "artificial" or "overpowering."

If you're looking for a good shaving regimen, this is a good place to start and expand from.

If you're looking for a good quality kit to use for travel purposes, or for keeping at a someone else's house that you tend to spend nights at, it'll do the trick (and may show you have some class, too, haha).

Husband and I are both hooked
Purchased

Purchased this for my husband thinking he would probably be irritated by the whole Art of Shaving "process" of pre-shave oil and using a brush to lather up. But I was wrong! The resulting smooth shave can not be denied. He has since requested I buy him the full-sized products and hasn't gone back to his cheaper drugstore brand. (I love the products too and use them when shaving my legs.)

Fantastic way to shave.
Purchased

While I actually like the eShave travel brush better, the oil, cream, and after shave is my favorite so far of anyone I've tried. The sandelwood scent is my go to. It seems a bit strange at first, but is very pleasant through out the day.

Great gift!
Purchased

I got this for my husband and he loves it! It gives him a chance to try out a fancier shave. The sandalwood scent we both love! This would make a great groomsmen gift or stocking stuffer. Very pleased with quality for the price.

Great way to dip your toe into high end shaving.

I started with this starter kit and a middle of the road safety razor my facial hair grows on the slower side so the starter kit lasted me a bit. Great products and the brush will last you a good amount of time. Months later and mine still hasn't shown any signs of fading or wear.

Smells Horrible
Purchased

I recently purchased this shave kit and was literally repulsed by the smell of the brush. I literally gagged and so did my wife, forcing me to get back in the shower and wash off the funk. I don't know what the issue was but I was shocked and confused. The oil and balm were okay but didn't really have any fragrance like I thought they would. Hopefully it was just a bad box or something..............

Gift for my son
Purchased

The unscented version was purchased as a gift for my younger son. I like the straight-forward instructions. It's a great gift at a great value.

Husband loves this!

I got this for my husband and he loves it. I think it makes his skin feel nice and smooth. Nice to touch!! I got him the sandalwood and he has sensitive skin and he did fine with it.
