The Real Shaving Company Shave Cream Sensitive Formula Review shaving beard smooth male skincare mens grooming Caulfields Counter paraben free SLS England UK

Great Value: The Real Shaving Company Shave Cream Sensitive Formula

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at The Real Shaving Company and Rite Aid stores.
Scent: Pine with a hint of citrus.
Benefits:  Thick texture allows for a comfortable shave; does not over-dry the skin; great value.
Drawbacks:  Those with sensitive noses may find the scent a bit strong.   

The Real Shaving Company’s Sensitive Formula Shave Cream is an exceptional value.  It outperforms some higher-end brands that cost three to four times as much.  The cream has a wonderfully thick texture that allows for a close, comfortable shave.  A little goes a long way.  I enjoyed its unique masculine scent – pine slightly infused with citrus.  However, some with sensitive noses may find the smell a bit strong.  This shave cream is definitely worth a try.

Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream - White Eagle

Kiehls Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream White Eagle Mens Grooming Male Skincare Shaving Caulfields Counter

Kiehl's Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream - White Eagle (texture)

Overall Rating: ★★★★★
Price: $ (under $10 – 2.5 fl. oz. tube) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, and Bloomingdale’s.
Scent: Light menthol and camphor.
I liked: how the shave cream protected my face from cuts and razor burn.  The blend of menthol and camphor was cool but not overpowering. 
I didn’t like: the paraben preservatives.

I was really impressed by how well Kiehl’s Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream (White Eagle) protected my face from getting nicked and irritated.  My skin felt moisturized throughout the entire shaving process.  Not once did I feel the razor “dragging” across my face.  The cream’s light cooling sensation felt both soothing and invigorating.  I highly recommend trying out this product if you are unhappy with your current shave cream or gel.  Kiehl’s also offers an unscented “Blue Eagle” version for those with sensitive skin.

From Sandpaper to Baby Bottom
