Naturally, if you’re a facial hair free man, you’ll be all too aware of the importance of having a decent shaving cream. Even in these beard-tolerating times, however, there’s a place in every man’s bathroom cabinet for a quality shaving cream. While razors and wet-shaving are exceptionally well suited to creating a clean cut look, they’re also second to none when it comes to detailing, tidying up beard and hairlines, and cleaning up the back of the neck. And even if you don’t partake in any of the preceding, it’s definitely always handy to have a shaving cream lying around in case you need to tidy up for a special occasion.
The vast majority of men will know how crucial the shaving cream is to a good shave, ensuring smooth passes with the blade, and reducing irritation. But if you’ve never made the jump up from a basic product to a quality shave cream, you might not know just how good you can have it. In this article, we take you through the Best Shaving Creams for Men.
The Clinique for Men Aloe Shave Gel is an outstanding shave product, oil-free yet richly moisturising. Its Aloe content calms irritation and reduces redness while ensuring extreme smoothness. An ideal fit for those with sensitive and easily irritable skin.
The Anthony Shave Cream makes use of the naturally antiseptic properties of Rosemary and Eucalyptus, while using Squalene to act as a protective, moisturising barrier. For this reason, it’s the perfect shave product for those with oilier skin, preventing any minor nicks from being infected by the bacteria which cause acne breakouts.
The Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum by Aesop is a low-foaming serum which is specifically designed to create an extremely smooth shave without comedogenic effects. Sandalwood, Neroli Blossom, and D-Panthenol work not only to lubricate but to calm and soothe irritation.
Neat Cut, the Shaving Cream from House 99 is a nourishing cream, which creates a protective veil over the skin to ensure the smoothest and most effective shave possible. Combining Spirulina, Quinoa, and Glycerin, your skin will feel thoroughly hydrated, and you’ll be able to easily pass over it with a razor.
Triumph & Disaster Old Fashioned Shave Cream, inspired by traditional shave creams used in barbershops around the world for centuries, creates a rich, foamy lather, while its Coconut Oil and Lanolin content create an extremely smooth shave. Its unique blend of aromas makes it an extremely popular choice.
Making use of West Indian Lime extract, which helps to eradicate the bacteria which cause breakouts post-shave, the rich lather of the Trumpers Shave Cream Extract of Lime softens and nourishes skin, while making shaving a breeze. This traditional shave product is specially designed to work best with a shaving brush.
Using Macadamia Nut Oil and Glycerine to thoroughly hydrate and moisturise the skin, the Jack Black Supreme Cream Triple Cushion Shave Lather leaves skin noticeably softer than the average shave cream. Its rich lather helps to lift up facial hair from the face to cause fewer ingrown hairs.
Next on our list of the Best Shaving Creams for Men is the Neville Shaving Cream. Formulated with plant-based Bisabolol, which helps to regulate sebum production and prevents bacterial infections and acne after shaving, as well as Aloe Vera, it’s great for those with oily or combination skin.
The Protective Shaving Cream from Proraso also makes use of Aloe, combined with Vitamin E, its chief nourishing and moisturising agent. It softens the beard hair, works into a lather which lifts beard hairs from the face, all while reducing the risk of inflammation.
The Foam Free Shave Cream for Men from AHAVA is enriched with Dead Sea Minerals, a deeply conditioning natural ingredient which promotes healthy, moisturised skin. Its Ginger, Ginseng, and Aloe content make it stimulating, refreshing, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
The Menscience Advanced Shave Formula is another product which makes use of a Glycerine and Aloe combo to produce an ultra-smooth, ultra-protective shave, moisturising the skin while soothing it deeply.
The Baxter Of California Super Close Shave Formula is a nourishing shave cream which makes use of anti-septic tea tree oil to prevent the outbreak of blemishes. Combining this with peppermint, menthol, and botanical extracts, the Shave Formula refreshes and soothes irritated skin.
Last on our list of the best shaving creams for men is the LQD Skin Care Face Shave Cream, an award-winning non-foaming formula which cushions the skin from razor damage while being ultra-gentle and fragrance-free, suited to even the most sensitive of skin types.
