Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Starting with clean, slightly moist skin, apply cream to face and neck using your fingertips or a shaving brush. Work into a gentle lather using circular motions. Shave and rinse.

Love it!

Very smooth and slick. Very comfortable shave. Smells great. I didn't realize what I was missing just using regular soap to shave (don't judge me!). Love it!

Comfortable Shave - Minimal Lather
Sampled

Overall, I like this shave lather. It leaves my face feelings comfortable and soft. The only downside is it takes more product than I would expect to work up a decent lather.

Solid Shaving Cream

Provides a nice, slick lather... not the best I've ever tried, but definitely above average. It is easy on the skin and has a neutral fragrance.

had a few nick's here and there, but is definitely something I would consider buying in the future. I would apply more than they recommend.

Very thick lather, Left face feeling great
Sampled

I am a very very avid shaver, and have a vast collection of shaving product from shave sticks, shave gels, shave creams and shave soaps. This is one of my all time favorites, and beats products that are sometimes 2-3x the price. I usually wetshave, meaning I use a brush to lather up the cream. This creates a thick, moisturizing, slick cream that has a very subtle, light fragrance that is a delight to smell. This cream can also be used without a brush, but you use a lot more product and dont get the creamy lather that this cream can create with a brush. Jack Black has always created superb products and this one is another home run product from them!

This product just doesn't seem to quite hold my hair in any kind of style for me.

I'm a Shave Soap Guy

It's fine stuff but I'm more of a shaving soap kind of guy so this stuff really isn't for me.

Best yet!

I love this stuff. I have a very thick beard and even after not shaving for multiple days this stuff still does the trick. I hightly recommend it to anyone.
