I use this cream to shave my legs and it's the only shaving cream I've found that doesn't leave my skin irritated. There's no fragrance added, which can be a con as well as a pro - it's not the most pleasant odor. But it's worth it!

My dermatologist recommended it to me, and she advised me to use a single or double blade razor, which has really helped. I had always assumed more blades meant a closer and less-irritated shave, but the opposite is true.

Even though it's pricey, it's worth every dime!

This is the first "For Sensitive Skin" shave cream that truly didn't irritate my skin. I never had any luck with other brands such as Aveeno or Kiss My Face. The cream is thick and does tend to gum up the razor quickly, but it is simple enough to rinse the blade a few extra times under the shower while shaving. The product stays right where you put it and doesn't slide down your leg, also a plus. It isn't super moisturizing, but I don't really mind that. I'd prefer a pump instead of a tube for ease of re-application, but they don't offer one. All in all a good buy for the money that does what it said it would.

      Comments about Vanicream Shave Cream, for Sensitive Skin, 6 oz:

      I purchased this because it's on a list of "safe to use" products given to me by my dermatologist after having allergy testing done.
      The coverage is so-so but thin compared to shave gels.
      What I cannot get past is the way this product smells!! Yuck! This is only my first time trying it, so maybe I have a particularly strong smelling batch - but it's a combination of old sweaty athletic sox and corn chips. Totally gross.
      I am on the search for something fragrance free that is less offensive to my senses.

        Comments about Vanicream Shave Cream, for Sensitive Skin, 6 oz:

        I wasn't sure what to expect with this product, but was pleasantly surprised to find it had very little discernable smell, a light, creamy texture and provides a thin, smooth lubricating layer between skin and razor. I've used it for about three weeks and have had no itching, rash or red razor bumps at all, which is a minor miracle, as I am allergic to most products.. My legs are smooth and moisturized and the shave is closer than I get with regular foam. I like the fact that this is a creamy lotion and not a foam, which tend to clog razors. The shave lasts longer, since it is closer to start with. I highly recommend this for those with extremely sensitive skin like mine.

        A doctor recommended this shave cream because my skin is so sensitive, breaks out and itches after shaving even with an electric razor. I love this shave cream!!!! My skin is so smooth and moist.

          This is the first time a shaving cream has actually prevented my husbands face from major irritation! Yes, it may clog the razor, but that is what hot water was meant for. It is great for his skin

              Comments about Vanicream Shave Cream, for Sensitive Skin, 6 oz:

              I have to use shave cream for ultra sensitive skin. I bought this when, for a few months, i could not find Aveeno shave gel anywhere. The consistency is like a thick lotion so i was pessimistic, but the Vanicream product lubricated my legs and protected against nicks & cuts better than Aveeno or any shave cream i have ever used. I agree with the other reviewer that noted that this product stays where you put it and doesn't run off your leg, which i like as well. Because it feels like a lotion, i was tempted to use a large amount, but since it's expensive, i used just enough to cover my legs with a thin film, and it protected my skin very well. I won't go back to Aveeno. This product doesn't smell pretty but that's a good thing for me, due to skin sensitivity. I use numerous Vanicream products and am very pleased with all of them.

                This product is particularly good for those who have sensitive skin.
                It's less substantial than other shaving creams that I've used in the past, but it does the job. It has a bland smell and it's a bit pricey compared to most at the drug store. Overall, it works fine, but it's for particular people with skin care needs.
