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.

I truthfully want to believe that I am doing something wrong.

But the truth I see before me is that Cremo-Cream, nor any other specialty shaving cream has done a better job than even the cheapest store-bought product.

It lathers on my face, I shave it off. There is nothing else to it.

Things that DO a make difference are:

-Smell - It smells like Orange (Personally hate it)
-Consistence - It does feel good, very smooth and thick, but..
-Durability - It is a pain to remove, even from the blade.

Of course I am clean shaven and look perfect afterwards, but.. I always do.

So I don't feel like their slogan akin to "Use our product once - you'll never go back" truly applies to me in any way.

When I bought this product I thought that I would do something else for me. I thought that it would cause less irritation, allowing me to shave without a pre-scrub, which if you don't know, makes your shave butter-smooth every time.

But no.. the Cremo-Cream did.. just whatever other shaving cream did for me. So, I'll probably go back to using one that doesn't clog my razor.

    Comments about Cremo Cream Shave Cream, 6 fl oz:

    It's an amazing shave, real talk here...especially compared to aerosol foam and gels. You don't need a lot, since it doesn't foam...(if it's clogging your razor after rinsing, you're using way too much.) Water-activated molecules need moisture to soften your beard, which means you use less.

    The best shave is on SHOWER-WET skin, (or a steaming pre-shave wash cloth) take a dime-sized dab and APPLY A THIN COATING to your face and let it soften wet beard for 20 seconds...or go old school and apply with a boar-bristle shaving brush to work it in your beard and skin. No nicks or cuts on my Flintstone beard !

      Different than all other shave products - Use very little so a tube lasts months - and the best nick, irritation free shave you will ever get. Orders of magnitude advanced from any other shave cream.

          I am a woman and use this product on my legs, my boyfriend uses it on his face- it's the only shaving product we use. A tiny amount is all that is necessary, yields a super-close shave, no irritation. It's cheaper than the foams and gels in the long run, and a better product, too.

            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.

                  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.
