Good things come in threes, like this preshave trifecta of macadamia nut oil, glycerin, and soybean oil. Free of parabens, fragrances, and petrochemicals, it lifts whiskers to give you a close shave while moisturizing and shielding skin so you end up with a smooth, nick-free mug. We’'re not the only ones who think it’s great: Men'’s Health named the lather Best Shave Cream in 2008.

Luxurious Lather
Sampled

The lather on this shaving cream was really nice. It left me with a ridiculously smooth shave, especially compared to the shave soap I usually use. I shave with a safety razor so the only drawback I'd say is that the lather was thick enough to get my hairs gunked up in my razor more than with my shaving soap. Having said that, it smelled great, worked great & I'd definitely recommend it. Especially for when I travel.

It's a shaving cream...that's it
Sampled

It's a shaving cream, there isn't anything particularly notable about it. It comes out in a thick lather, which is great, and goes on easily.

GOOD!

I'm always excited when I open my birchbox to see I've received shaving cream! I have extremely sensitive skin when it comes to shaving and I was pleasantly surprised that this shaving cream was great for my sensitive skin.

The lather was not very lathery and while it worked it just is not what i am looking for. It did leave my face very smooth and moist.

Just okay

My facial hair grows FAST and so after trying many different samples and brands this one has landed right in the middle of the pack. the lather was nice, however the fluidity of the shave was not something to rave about. As for the scent it wasn't all that memorable.
