When it comes to your shaving routine, it’s high time to get back to nature. This concentrated cream (named the Best Shave Cream in 2012 by Esquire) uses essential oils to soften even the toughest facial hair and add nourishment when you need it most. The soap-free formula provides an uberlubricating barrier that protects skin from bumps, nicks, and irritation. Unlike typical foams, the cream allows you to track your shave and avoid sensitive areas. All in all, it’s a natural choice.
My girlfriend bought this for me as a b-day gift. I use it a few times and it's just OK. I prefer something that has more glide and rinse off easier. I will continue my search.
The coolest part about Ursa Major is the story behind the brand. They also make a pretty good shaving cream, too. It wasn't quite right for me, as my hair is pretty coarse, but wasn't bad, either.
I'm torn on the Stellar Shave Cream. On the one hand, it smells absolutely fantastic, feels rich and substantial, and delivers a close, comfortable shave even on my difficult neck.
On the other hand, it's way more opaque than I care for (I routinely lose more hair along my jawline than I intended when using it), and despite feeling rich and substantial, the cream itself doesn't feel slick and moist. Your skin will be left feeling great when you're done, it just doesn't feel like that's humanly possible when you're applying it.
While I am a huge fan of this brand and enthusiastically endorse their other products, the shave cream is underwhelming. It's a non-soap, non-foaming cream. While that's great for sensitive skin that can get dried out and irritated after shaving, I really wish it was more lubricating. Might work better in conjunction with a shave oil. Basically, if you're looking for a natural, nourishing, non-irritating shave cream and don't mind that it's not very slick, give it a shot, you might like it.
