I'm not sure I'm completely sold on the premium Art of Shaving lavender shaving cream. I usually use the cheap Barbasol cans myself, so this was a first for me. I do have to admit that the general experience with a premium product was better. However, I don't know if I could tell the difference in a blind (and nose plugged) test. The lavender scent is definitely more pleasing than the cheaper products that I've used.
All in all, it definitely smells and feels better, but I'm not sure if that's worth the difference in price vs. performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nwrockhound Easy to use.
The Art of Shaving cream spreads evenly and works very well. This product is in a cream instead of solid form, making preparation and use very quick. I usually have razor burn with use of other high end shaving products, The Art of Shaving cream taken care of that. When applied with the badger hair brush, you quickly notice your hair lift for a closer shave.

Rated 5 out of 5 Absolutely the best I've tried in about 20 different brands.
I saw a review on lifehacker a while back saying that people voted Barbasol to be the number 1 shaving cream. I think they had to be joking, because this stuff was on the list in around 4th place.
There is nothing in a can that will come close to this did.
All the stuff I'd had before came in a little puck that you had to scrub forever with your brush to get good lather. Then the lather would break down before you were done.
A tiny bit of this stuff is all you need. You can barely get the tips of your brush covered and that will lather you up enough to go over your face twice if you need to.
It's about like rubbing miracle whipe on you face, only it smells much better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agent1928 Closer Shave!
For the many years that I have been shaving everyday, I have always stuck to one brand name, mainly because it is usually the one I am used to. That doesn't mean it's the best one I have tried. I get many bumps and my shave isn't as close as I wanted it. But since receiving the Art Of Shaving Full Size Kit, I thought I would give the Shaving Cream a try!
After applying a small amount of the Pre-Shave Oil, I noticed that this is the same for the Shaving Cream. I am using less amount of this shaving cream than the old one I had. It also smells great! I noticed that the Shaving Cream has softened the beard, which has resulted in a closer shave! Plus it washes off easily. I am never going back to the old shaving cream again!
