Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shaving cream I’ve found This is the best shaving cream I’ve found and plan on using this for the rest of my life. After I switched to shaving with a brush and safety razor I tried all the recommended shaving creams. Before this I was using Taylor of old bond and this gives me a way better shave. Since it’s mentioned in a couple other reviews I’ll also note that for me the smell is not an issue, there is no lingering smell at all, I would describe the cream as having a light medicinal smell but is unscented post-shave. It’s one of my favorite kiehls products, thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible smell Just like another reviewer below the odor from this product was terrible. Dirty socks with mint. I am a Kiehls fan and am shocked they are selling this stuff. Maybe it’s a bad batch??

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best This is the best shave cream that money can buy. I have been using this shave cream for over ten years and will not buy another brand. It is currently out of stock, so I hope they are not discontinuing this item. Please continue to make this fine product. When will this be back in stock? Thanks. Buy this shave cream and you will be so happy that you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shaving cream Well, the best thing about this stuff is that it moisturizes my face while I'm shave. Not the best scent in the also conditions the hair on my brush. Just wish it came in bigger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have! Amazing product, minus the smell. Seriously, this stinks; however, it works like a charm. This product requires a brush, which in my opinion is required to shave regardless, but it aids in the perfect shave so well. Works best with the use of a pre-shave oil ahead of time on warm skin. You'll want to make sure the brush you have it warm from hot water as well. After lathering up, shave it off. Follow with an aftershave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad it's back! A great product that does what it's supposed to do. I don't find it to have any scent at all, and a very tiny amount turns into more than sufficient lather. I'm probably doing it wrong - I tap the end of my brush into the jar, run it under a slow stream of hot water, then lather up. I'm sure there's more efficient ways, but I can make one jar last for four months, my brush is easy to clean, and I get a good, smooth, close shave. The only con is that it's very hard to find outside of actual Keihl's stores. Fortunately there's one at the mall near my house so it was a minimal inconvenience (I didn't have a regular person at the department store where I used to buy Keihl's anyway).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the Best Yes first off, the smell. This isn’t T&H’s 1805. To me it smells closest to Elmer’s glue. It’s not bad per se, it’s just not great. I think it’s an acquired smell and I’ve come to be comforted in the smell. The tingly feeling is great and this has produced the least amount of razor burn I’ve experienced. Make sure you know how to lather also – because this cream requires very, very little and that mitigates the smell. Plus for me, I always follow up with things that smell good so it doesn’t really matter to me. The ingredients produce a nice cooling, tingle effect on the face that really makes a difference. I know there are schools of thought that say to stay away from that type of stuff in shaving cream because it actually causes your pores to close and all that, but the soothing benefit far outweighs any non-perceptible changes in my pores. A bit about myself. I used an electric shaver for pretty much as I’ve shaved – mmm maybe 13 years? For the past year I’ve been experimenting in the whole wet shave thing. I’ve come to view it kind of like minimalist running – why bother? I know people cite you get a closer shave, but that’s not my experience. My top of the line, self-cleaning Braun gets just as close. I’ve used straight razors, safety double-edged, and everything up to 6-blades. Not one is as convenient as an electric shaver. This is not to say that I don’t enjoy the whole process of a wet shave. It’s more relaxing and my night time skin ritual is kind of like my meditation time; it’s very cathartic and allows me to rebalance. I’m sure I’m not alone on this. I have acne-prone, oily skin and to top it off, I get razor burn by thinking about shaving. Pre-shave oils, no matter how they claim to not clog pores, always clogs my pores. I’ve tried many different shaving creams and thrown many away. Honestly in that throwaway list resides the Blue and White Eagle from Kiehl’s. Those were useless for my face and took days to recover from that razor burn. Oh well, I tried. There are three that I like: Truefitt & Hill’s 1805 (like every male on the planet who has tried it), AoS’s Kelp, and this. Far and away this provides me with the better shave. If you don’t know how to lather, I suggest you spend a couple hours researching on the YouTube and Badger & Blade. I thought I knew what I was doing and I most certainly did not. I’m not going to get into here, but once I finally figured out how to properly lather my brush in my bowl this became the stuff of legends. It’s not the best smelling shaving cream – we’ve established this. Is it the worst? Actually it may very well be. But it’s not disgusting… it’s just not nice. Also, if lathered properly the smell is mitigated and the softer medicinal smells are released. I prefer a shaving bowl so I swirl a damp brush lightly in the tub of shave cream for about 15 seconds. When I take my brush out it looks like it has almost nothing on it. I then proceed to whip up the lather in a shaving bowl with about one half teaspoon of hot water. After a minute or so I have enough lather to last the whole shave. Also make sure you when you apply it on your face to take time to continue to lather on your face. Rushing will get you nowhere, plus the added time allows the hair to soften and prepare your skin. Shaving is a joy with this cream and I never need to worry about my razor clogging when I properly lather, and I have never cut myself with this lather. All this being said, I think I will be switching back to my electric. I find that if I don’t wash my face after I shave (no matter with what cream or method) I have a greater tendency to breakout. So I struggle with washing my face before and after a wet shave and often just wash after with is like blasphemy if you ask the ‘pros.’ I never wash before my electric shaver and it always gives me a close, razor burn free shave. I then cleanse afterwards with a clarisonic and my skin is perfect. As long as I continue to keep up cleansing, I can keep my acne at bay. It’s a matter of finding what works with your skin. After a year of heavy experimentation in the wet shave world I’ve discovered that this shaving cream combined with a two-blade safety razor, followed by the blue herbal line, works best for my face. But I still don’t see a point continuing to wet shave. Maybe I can continue to get more proficient on the straight razor and “treat” myself on weekends. I don’t know. Regardless, as far as shaving creams go, this has my skin’s endorsement as the best for sensitive shaves.
