"I've been using this for over a year now, and I refuse to settle for anything else. Used with a premium razor, this gives me the closest shave I've ever had, and razor burn is never an issue. One hint, get a brush and bowl, work just a small dab of shave cream into a rich lather, it takes a just a minute or less, apply to your face, work it liberally into your beard, and rinse your razor frequently. I've tried safety and double edge razors, but I've found that Shave Mob razors work just as well, and they last for several days more than anything you can find at the drug store."
"I've been wet shaving (Using a brush and bowl) for about 6 years and I've experimented with many different soaps and creams and I can say without a doubt that this is the best product I've ever used. I just picked up another 3 tubes in person at one of the many Bath and Body Works stores available. I use a higher quality badger brush and porcelain shaving bowl when using this product as to create a nice lather. This cream lathers quite nicely with ease and applies real smoothly to the face. The instant sensation of the cool and fresh scent of eucalyptus is delightfully refreshing. The generous lather that even just a small dab creates help lubricate the skin for a clean and close shave every time. For best results I suggest using a badger brush and a Safety Razor or Double Edge Razor. I recommend this product to anyone who wants a cool, clean, and refreshing shave."
"Amazing product. I've been using C.O. Bigelow Premium Shave Cream for about 10 years and it is the best shave cream I've ever used. This is orders of magnitude better than the shave cream/foam/gel that's available at local drug stores or supermarkets. You only need to apply a small amount. It lathers up very nicely and allows you to get a clean, close, refreshing shave. I rarely need to apply an aftershave cream afterwards. I like that it is not "perfumey" like most gels on the market, so it doesn't compete or clash with my cologne. My girlfriend can see and feel the difference when I shave with C.O. Bigelow. It leaves my face looking smoother. Razor bumps, gone! I love the smaller size (1.7 oz) when I'm traveling and the larger size (5.2 oz) for home. Use this product with a good quality sharp razor for best results.
Guys (or ladies, please tell your guys), if you're shaving in the shower with bath soap please stop! If you're using shave cream/gel/foam sold at major drug stores, please stop. Get C.O. Bigelow. You'll never go back. All it will take is for your girl to tell you once, how much smoother your skin feels...You'll see what I mean."
"With all the wonderful reviews, I was expecting this stuff to be over the moon, especially since it's made in Italy. Sadly, it's not any different than other shaving creams I've used in the past. The smell is nice but very faint, and even though it leaves your skin soft, I didn't notice my shave being "the closest or the coolest shave on earth." It's not something I would recommend or purchase again."
