Rated 3 out of 5 by KDang88 Nice Shave Experience But Could Be Better
I've been using the Art of Shaving Lemon Kit for awhile. The kit is nice and has the WOW factor because it comes with the Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, Badger Shaving Brush, and After-Shave Balm. Packaging is nice but didn't come with clear instructions. Being a novice with fancy shaving, I kinda winged it the first time. After the first shave I went on their youtube channel to watch the video. Second shave went a lot smoother.
- The lemon scent of the product is nice in general.
- I enjoyed using the badger shaving brush because it's made of nice quality and using the brush to apply the shaving cream makes me feel fancy.
- After Shave Balm makes my skin feel nice and doesn't sting.
COULD BE BETTER:
- The kit didn't come with clear instructions.
- The Pre-shave bottle should have came with a squirt pump for easy application.
- Shaving cream is too thick and dries out if you leave it on for too long.
- Shaving cream kept getting stuck in my Gillette Fushion Pro-Glide multi-blade razor.
- The kit should have came with a razor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Geeksnapshot Step up your Art of Shaving!
With the Art of Shaving Lemon Essentials Kit you get 4 products in one nice package. I found getting some of the item s out of the box a bit of a struggle but after all 4 items were successfully removed I set forth on my shaving adventure. I can see myself using the shaving lotion and applicator brush going forward and using the Aftershave by request of my wife who loved the lemon smell, as far as the pre-shave oil, i would not be using it. To me the oil was very thick and syrup like. Overall if you or your loved ones love the smell of lemons and you love taking care of your face, I would give the Art of Shaving Lemon Essentials kit a try and experience it on your own.

I've been using The Art of Shaving's Products for a few years now. The Pre-Shave Oil is a must. I used to get awful skin irritation from shaving. But now with a dab the size of a quarter and a delightful lemon scent, the oil lubricates my face properly to allow the razor to slide with any knicks or irritation. Plus the lemon scent is great. The Shave Butter, also has a great lemon scent and provides awesome hydration and softens the hair perfectly. Combine this with the badger hair brush and you have a recipe for success. The brush gets the butter in every nook and cranny. It may sound crazy if you've never tried it, but it's a total game changer. Also you only need about half a thumbnail worth of butter to completely cover your face. If you shave daily a tub will last at LEAST 6 months. Finally the post shave hydration cream has a great lemon smell and leaves a very smooth face hydrated all day. It even has sort of a cooling sensation, but I think that's just due to the high moisture absorption. Overall these are the best products I've ever used. I've been a loyal customer for over 5 years and it's sole due to the high quality performance of these great products! If you're not using them, you're not shaving correctly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sneezinglion Quality but short on instructions.
I found the kit to be very high quality, and the brush is top notch.
The instructions left much to be desired, as the first time I used it I did as described with the brush and the shaving cream, and found that my shave was very poor.
Once I went online and discovered how to actually use the brush, I found the shaving cream to be above average in quality.
Knowing how to use a brush is a plus before getting this product.
That being said I did like all the other parts of the product, and have made the pre-shave oil and the after-shave balm part of my daily shaving ritual.
