Over the past 15 years, I've been in search of an inexpensive shaving product (cream, foam, gel, lotion, magical incantation, etc.) that could match the quality and effectiveness of Erno Laszlo's Hydra-Therapy Shave Cream. The Laszlo shave cream costs $25 at [...], and while there are certainly creams that are more expensive (e.g., Acqua di Parma's shave cream is $62), there are none that can rival Laszlo's, or so I thought. I've tried the shaving products from Kiehl's, Biotherm Homme, Vichy Homme, The Art of Shaving, Clinique, Aramis Lab Series, and many others. Some of these were very good and some were downright horrible. Even the best ones, however, failed to match the shave quality of the Laszlo. I saw the Cremo Cream on the shelf at [...] and I was intrigued. I threw the the Cremo Cream into my shopping basket with a soupçon of optimism, but mostly with resignation as I'd been let down by so many hollow promises of the "best shave ever!" I'm in grad school now and had resigned myself to the fact that I'd never get a quality, pain-free shave again until I got out of school and could afford the Laszlo once again. I was awed by the quality and value of Cremo Cream. It is neck-and-neck with the Laszlo as the best cream I've ever used. It is luxuriously creamy and the delicate bergamot fragrance is uplifting. I look forward to the olfactory wakeup every morning. It looks, feels, smells, and works like a shave cream that is at least three times its price. Moreover, one tube lasts a very long time because you don't need much for an effective shave. I love this stuff. I love it especially because I despise shaving. Shaving is a time-consuming, expensive, messy, and sometimes painful, necessary evil. Cremo Cream mitigates a great deal of the inconvenience, expense, discomfort, and dread. Get yourself a tube. Now. I don't think I'll ever go back to using the Laszlo. There's no reason to.

The product is quite good as a lubricant. It protects against skin irritations very well as evidenced by a lot less shaving bumps under my chin.
The only negative is the odd scent it has.
At first, there is a nice scent of something citrus, but soon there is an underlying odor of something best described as "chemically". It's not overwhelming but it's there, or at least I smell it. Would it stop me from buying this product again?
I would say, yes, IF I can find something that gives me as clean of a shave, with nearly no razor clog, and much less skin irritation due to how well it lubricates.
Overall, the product works great, if the smell doesn't bother you. I happen to have a very sensitive nose overall, especially in the morning.

    Comments about Cremo Cream Shave Cream, 6 fl oz:

    I was ready to be skeptical but instead am quite impressed. Without a doubt the best shaving cream I have ever used. Very pleasant citrus scent, great lubricity and leaves my skin feeling good. Does not dry my skin like some soaps can and no razor burn. I squeeze just a 1/2 inch into my palm, work it in with a shaving brush then use the brush to apply an even layer to my face. There is enough cream left on the brush for a second pass and it does not dry out between passes. I have found that some gels go on too thick and get in the way of a good shave while some soaps are too thin leaving you with no protection. Cremo has achieved the prefect balance providing good protection without getting in the way of a close shave.

    My standard for years has been Nivea Sensitive Gel (can) and Nivea Shaving Cream (tube). They are both great products but Cremo Cream has raised the bar. I use a Merkur Long Handled Safety Razor with Feather Double Edge Razor Blades for the best shave possible.

        Comments about Cremo Cream Shave Cream, 6 fl oz:

        Consider this statement from the company: "...Cremo has no air: it's an extremely rich cream. It contains unique, super-lubricating, highly slippery molecules that have been compounded with powerful skin conditioners. Together they make your blade glide effortlessly over your skin like an ice skate. It leaves your skin astonishingly soft and smooth. We think you will find this is better than anything else you have ever used..." Not even close. There are plenty of shave soaps and creams with better lubrication, maybe even some gels. Its not bad, but I can think of comparable products that are much better and that are either cheaper or just slightly more expensive. Products which dwarf this are: almost any shave soap, Proraso shaving cream, and the very inexpensive Bump Patrol Cool Shave Gel, which can actually be used with a shave brush. Don't even try to use Cremo with a brush. I've tried it with and without and it doesn't compare to any of the above mentioned products.

          Comments about Cremo Cream Shave Cream, 6 fl oz:

          I began to use this product after discovering it in a store while I lived on an island that gets ripped on shipping charges. I decided to take on the marketing challenge to see if it was truly "The astonishingly superior shave cream." (This is on the bottle folks) I read and followed the directions- I have yet to be disappointed. I also love that this is made in the USA. As a female I will order this again and again. I have tried a few female marketed shave creams but found that they were too expensive for how often I had to repurchase. This is definitely a 90+ day supply when used as directed. For me this is worth my money.

              I've tried every shave cream, gel, and oil imaginable and this one beats the others hands down. Note that you MUST do the following to get the most benefit: Squeeze a small amount onto one palm. Rub palms together 4 or 5 times. This produces a modest lather. Rub lather firmly into skin. Shave. No razor clog, no nicks. Remarkable.

                best shaving cream I've every used and about a third the cost of some fancy creams out there. so thick and luxurious felling, and keeps the razor gliding across my face. I use it over a pre shave oil and it's just the best cream I've ever used! I even went back and purchased the Creamo face wash and moisturizer to try!

                    This has to be the best shaving cream on the market.

                    I've tried them all. Even the pricey brands like Art of $having, 0mega, Tayl0r, etc.

                    It could be that this cream is just more compatible with my skin type than other, but wow. Excellent product. Great Value.

                      Cremo is a very good product at a great price. I follow the directions and wet my face with very hot water. I then use a very small amount (about the size of a pea,) and work it into my face and neck. I then shave and I get a very smooth shave. I have tired many, many different shaving cremes and gels and this has to be as good, if not better then ones costing much more. I think you will find it worthwhile to try.

                        I'm a woman, and thought this would be perfect to replace my hard to find shaving cream. It works - it leaves my skin smooth. But there's something about the consistency. I only use a little with added water, just like the directions say, but I just don't feel like it's covering very well.

                        And the smell is not very good for a woman. It would fit a man perfectly, but I just hate the smell.
