Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care For Men Shave Cream

Item Description

Disclaimer: This was my first "latherless cream," so I could have been doing something wrong....

I'd been looking everywhere for this, and I finally found it in a store. It was $7.99 +tax. It doesn't say it's latherless on it, but I guess I should have figured so since it says to wet face and rub on. But I think that's what Kiss My Face says, too, and it lathers. Hmmm, maybe it's the "Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate Free" on the back that means it doesn't lather.

Anyway, when I was shaving WTG, I finished about half my face and then checked to make sure I had a blade in. I don't know if that's good (couldn't feel any shaving) or bad (couldn't see any results). It's hard to tell where you've shaved with a latherless cream.

After I was through with WTG, I went XTG, and it was getting less and less comfortable. Come time for ATG, I couldn't even finish. I don't know if I had too much cream for the amount of water on my face or what, but the razor just wouldn't glide. On my right sideburn area, it felt like I'd skimmed off a very thin piece of skin, with just how it hurt and then burned when I touched it and put AS on it. (No skin was taken off, though, apparently.)

The scent is amazing. Makes your mouth water.

Latherability is a 0 because it doesn't lather.

I would say it's pretty moisturizing, because it's just like rubbing oil on your face.

Packing is a simple black tube, great for its purpose, nothing to write home about. Looks nice.

I wonder if others have gotten or could get better results than I did with this.

Might make a good pre-shave?

I prefer using a brush and building lather for most shaves, but I really like this cream when packing a brush and other "stuff" I use is not practical.:thumbup1:

Excellent brushless cream. Good slickness with no after-greasiness. Also found it tohave nice moisturizing properties. It isn't a go-to cream and shouldn't be in my opinion. However, I found it worked perfect in an emergency for a third pass after rinsing my brush and bowl. I'm also going to consider it strongly for a travel cream. Nice experience on a cream PIFd to me that I hadn't given proper consideration.
