Rated 3 out of 5 by Jake Not as good as lather
Got this as a sampler. Beats grocery store cans, but not as good as homemade lather. The shave felt pretty rough as I think the product dried midway through the pass (I couldn't see since it's clear). The skin feels really smooth because of the product, but the shave was not close.
The fact that it goes on completely clear makes it best for a full beard if you just need to clean up the sides, otherwise it's easy to lose track of what you covered on the second pass.
Won't be trying this product again. Probably the most disappointing Kiehl's product I've tried to date.
Rated 5 out of 5 by driftscars Made for precise shaves
This review is based on 2 shaves from the sample I received. The fact that it goes on clear it's great for shaving only the hairs you want to remove. It also cleans off the razor with cold water. It also has a nice moisturizing feel. Even though I liked it a lot my favorite saving cream is still the Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream - Blue Eagle. It just leaves my skin feeling better than any other shaving cream I've tried.
Rated 4 out of 5 by beagle19 Good By Formula 31-0
This is not a bad product and appears to be part of Kiehl's systematic discontinuing of long time favorites. I assume this is meant to take the place of Close Shaver's Squadron Shaving Formula 31-0. I use this one the way I did 31-0 which is to lubiricate my face before I shaved on Mondays. I don't shave on weekends so the lubrication under the White Eagle formula worked well. This new product works in much the same way for me but is not quite as effective 31-0/ However, it is more economical. I just hope that this is not part of your grand design to discontinue the White Eagle cream.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucas518 Literally the best shave lotion I've EVER used
I got this as a sample from my last visit at a Kiehl's store. This product blew me away - It smells amazing and delivered the best shave I ever have had. It goes on smooth and clear - and residual rinses away easily. I often find that shave lotions/creams feel like they don't wash off. I had no irritation and frankly felt like I hadn't even shaved minus how great the results actually were. Buying more ASAP!
Rated 5 out of 5 by LennyB Outstanding Product
I am absolutely blown away from this shave lotion! It seriously feels like a pre shave oil & shave cream combined. I use it to both shave my head & shape my beard. I was amazed after my 1st shave of my head at how soft & smooth my head felt. The cream made shaving 10x easier w/ little effort on my blade. And since it goes on clear, shaping my beard was effortless. There was a quick burning sensation when I applied it on, but it was not a deal breaker at all. This stuff is beyond awesome & I would recommend it for any man who shaves!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cosmo2015 Love it
Can't say enough of how I'm surprised and impressed with this product. I've been using Gillete Shaving Gel for a few months. Let me just say that I'm never going back. Shaving is so smooth. Love how it turns clear upon applying so you don't miss any spots. Skin feels soft, smooth, and not dry nor flaky at all (constant problem with other shaving gels/creams). Don't think I even need to apply moisturizer at all afterwards. Use it to shave my head too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nford Seriously Superb Shaving Experience Thanks To This Product...
I have to say that I'm really impressed with this product.
Like a pre-shave oil and shaving cream combined, the Close Shavers Squadron Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion instantly shifts into a transparent gel once applied. This will soften the hair and protect the skin for a precise shaving experience with no irritation, razor burn, or ingrown hairs.
You'll want to first make sure you are applying this product onto damp skin - that way your pores are a bit more opened and you wont have a tugging experience while gliding the blade against your skin. Once you've applied a small layer of this product onto the skin, you'll then glide your razor (towards the direction your hair is growing) in a slow fashion. As a side note, let your razor do the work - don't add pressure onto the blade... Pressure = Razor Burn.
After you've fully shaved your face (and wherever else), rinse your skin with cold water to close those pores back up. Follow up with a toner and moisturizer of your choosing. Moisturizer is non-negotiable, you have to use it.
All in all, if your looking to save a step in your shaving routine, are tired of the same old shaving cream, or want to enter the world of the cleanest shave you'll ever have - get the Smooth Glider Precision Shave Lotion.
