Rated 3 out of 5 by xXJCRXx Great scent and lasts long
My first use of the Lemon Shaving Cream did not go as planned. I wet my face and let it mostly dry before applying a generous amount of the Lemon Shaving Cream. I can't stress enough that everyone that uses this makes sure they have a wet face prior to applying. The shaving cream turned into a paste that was tough to wash off and even more challenging to shave with. My later uses were more pleasant and left my face feeling smooth and free of bumps and cuts. As with The Art of Shaving's other products i love the Lemon scent. I used the shaving cream for a month at least once a week. I still have the majority of the tub remaining. It does not take much of this Lemon Shaving Cream to shave even the most dense beard. After applying you will notice how soft your beard becomes and in the end how smooth your face is left. I recommend this product to anyone who is tired of bumps, cuts and just a plain old miserable razor burn. Don't forget the Lemon Shaving Cream when you place your order with The Art of Shaving.

Have you ever used a perfectly formulated shave cream? I never had and boy do I regret it! The Shace Cream that comes in The Art of Shaving Full Size kit (Lemon) is THE perfect formulation of scent, texture and ease of use. When you combine this with the Badger Brush in your kit you can create the perfect lather to cover your face for a close shave. I was able to shave twice with a small amount of cream that I lathered up with my Badger Brush and although I had a little clogging with my razor it was a great product! My face was very smooth during my shave and after, the cream played its part in this kit to give the perfect shave at home. The scent was not too strong and my wife loved the fresh scent that was still manly but fresh. This Premium Shave kit from The Art of Shaving is the way to go when you need a shave and is a great investment for any man who shaves every day or occasionally, it will not disappoint! I received my kit for free to try out and I will be a lifelong customer now, this is luxury and not at a high cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by calton Great stuff, wish it had more lemon scent
The shaving creme - Very good. Easy to lather (important, espically for beginners), and provided great protection during the shave. I would have given it 5 stars, except that I wanted more lemon scent. I get a hint of lemon, with a hint of soap... Not bad, just not what I'd expected.

Why yes.....that was a House Of Pain - "Jump Around" quote in my title, but it fits. The reason it does is that, besides the fact it is a cream I am talking about, it is probably one of the top shaving creams I have ever used!
Once I had my stubbly face all pre-oiled up, it was time to brake out the 'ol badger shaving brush and get down to some lathering up! The first thing I noticed when I took the cap off the tub of the Lemon Shaving Cream was just how fluffy it appeared. That fluffy-ness really made the cream very alluring to try for sure. You could tell it would not be a heavy cream. That fluffy texture plus the light lemon scent made it almost seem like this was a jar of Lemon Meringue pie topping.......ummmmmm pie. Sorry, getting off track here. I found that using the badger brush with this cream you only need to lightly dip the bristles into the tub to get enough to cover your face. You want to just use enough to have a thin layer on your face. This will allow you to get more shaves out of a jar. Also you don't want to have too much on your face as it will make your razor clog up and need rinsing much more often. When you are shaving, an occasional light whiff of lemon aroma will hit you which adds to the experience. This light cream makes your razor just glide across your face which also requires less pressure you have to apply to the razor against your face.
The final plus about this product is that not only does it do its job as a shaving cream, it also has great moisturizers in it. In fact after you finish shaving with your razor, your face feels really moisturized, smooth and healthy. So much so that if for some reason you did not have the next step to this kit (or temporarily out of it) which is the after-shave balm, you could almost get away without needing it (almost ;) )
After you are done with this cream you might just want to "Jump Around" as you are in the process of getting the best shave of your life!
