Rated 5 out of 5 by Jkenneyusmc Amazing lather!!!
I've used many different types of shaving creams, gels, and conditioners over the course of my shaving years. Nothing has come close to the experience I had recently with the Lemon Shaving Cream I received from The Art of Shaving!
I have pretty sensitive skin and am very prone to bumps on my neck, which in turn i regularly end up cutting my self on. All other shaving creams just didn't seem to do much to help protect the skin while giving me a nice smooth shave.
When I opened the container of Lemon Shaving cream the first thing I noticed was the thickness of it. I recommend to anyone who purchases this buy one of their shaving brushes as well because they pair nicely together and make the application of the cream much easier. The cream is pretty concentrated so you only need a little bit, which makes it last longer, and make sure your shave brush is a little wet with some warm water to help start the lathering.
Even though the packaging does say "Lemon", the sent of it is very mild. I found the smell to be a little closer to that of a glue paste that you used in grade school. That smell does die off after he cream is worked into a lather, and is non-existent once any remaining cream is rinsed away after the shave.
The ease of making and the richness of the lather was noting I've ever experienced before! Almost immediately after starting to make small circles with my shave brush I found there was lather. The richness of the lather was amazing, leaving a nice protective layer on my face to protect my skin. While it is an amazing product, and the lather is incomparable in my experiences, I found I needed to rinse out my razor more often throughout the shave.
After rinsing any remaining cream off my face I noticed my shave was better than it has been in awhile. I didn't have any cuts or nicks due to the protection the cream gave.
I gave this shave cream 5 out of 5 stars. It is worth every penny, and I will be recommending it to all my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by H2OLegendary You've never felt a shave like this before!
The Art Of Shaving Lemon Shaving Cream is an amazing product. I have never used a shaving cream quite like this before. I feel like I've been a slave to aerosol can shaving creams my whole life. If you have never used an actual creme before I would recommend giving it a try. I told everyone I know about this shaving cream. I do wish I had a straight razor to go along with this shaving cream. My skin was left smooth as a babys butt after using this product. Great creme 10 out of 10 from me.

I've used The Art of Shaving products in the past, specifically the Sandalwood aromas. The Lemon shaving cream was much frothier and lathered and covered easier. As with any cream of this nature, it dries out after a while, and when it does it dries your skin out. This is where the oil helps. If you're using a disposable razor or one with replaceable heads, you probably won't have this problem. Straight razor shaving takes longer, so what I do is just lather sections to shave at a time rather than my whole face. The cream itself is thick and silky and gives a good friction-less shave.

I believe the shaving cream did what it was supposed to do to ensure my shave was smooth. I did not notice anything that would make me say this was the best product I have used. I did feel smooth after I shaved but it is hard to tell if that is still because of the oil on my face. All in all I would say having this also being of a lemon scent helped create uniform smells on my face. I do hate how some creams can smell like rubbing alcohol or other nasty smells. If you want to keep with The Art of Shaving experience you will want to use their shaving cream as well.
