Let’s be honest: we are all lazy guys when it comes to shaving. Yeah, it’s true, I really like all those traditional things – beating a thick foam, apply it with a dax brush, warm towels and smooth and slow shaving. But at the end of the day, I just want to have that fresh feeling without spending an hour in the bathroom every second morning.
Well. Luckily, the growing industry of grooming products gives us plenty of time saving options. One of these is the „Kiehl’s Ultimate Brushless Shave“, a foam- and brushfree shaving creme which I am currently using for shaving my head.
There are a few differences to regular shaving products.
If you know Kiehl’s products, it’s obvious that the first big difference is the price tag. For the 150ml tube, I left 28 CHF at a local shop (other countries may vary of course). A pretty high price for a simple shaving creme. But it’s worth!
Because of it’s second big difference: the creme rapidly shortens the time I spend in the bathroom! Sometimes, I am so busy in the morning that I even have no time to perform my quickest shaving routine. So, after a couple of days, the stubbles get pretty „long“ which normally results in the need of some extra preparation before I shave them off. I go showering to get them soft, and I use a shaving oil to get a smoother shave experience.
The difference now with „Kiehl’s Ultimate Brushless Shave“? Well, I can just moist the head with clear warm water, apply the cream and start immediate shaving. The result is still super smooth, plus I never get razor bumps or something. With regular (cheaper) shaving products, I always needed to wait until they worked on the stubbles making them ready for shave.
The fragrance is fresh, I smell Menthol, and it leaves a fresh feeling after completing the shave.
All in all, I like this product. Which cream are you using?
