Review of Cremo Cream Shaving Cream

creamocream.JPGMy New Years resolution - get a better shave without breaking the bank. It's recession time, people. And while it may have taken a couple extra months for the federal government to admit it, the average joe has known to watch his wallet for a long time now. That's why I'm psyched to have found Cremo Cream, a shaving cream which ranks among the best, and costs among the least. At $8 for a 6oz tube, Cremo Cream is by far the best shave for the shekel, the best bang for the buck.

If you remember back in December when we first got Cremo Cream in, creator Mike Boone had set out to make a different type of shaving cream, one that wasn't mostly air. He was on to something. Cremo Cream shaves like the high end brands we've come to know and love. I'd put this shaving cream up to the likes of The Art of Shaving, Gentlemen's Refinery, or Billy Jealousy. Super close shave with nary a nick or cut to mention.

Cremo Cream is a white cream with smooths on easily and doesn't gunk up your razor. The tube suggest you use an "almond-sized" amount, but I typically weighed in at the pecan or walnut level. Regardless, this isn't one of those "use generously" shaving creams. One tube is supposed to last 60 days, and I think that'll come close to being true.

The only place Cremo Cream falls short when compared to the high-end brands is scent. There's absolutely nothing malodorous about Cremo Cream. It's just verges slightly on the artificial lemon. If you want to pay three and four times as much for a natural manly aroma, be my guest. You won't regret it, but you won't be getting that much of a better shave.

Cremo Cream is a winner. At $8 a tube, it's cheap. Get some.

This Just In - Cremo Cream

creamocream.JPGIt could be the premise for the next blockbuster prime-time drama: A man, dissatisfied with the vast selection of sub-par shaving creams, sets out to create a better shaving experience, and in doing so, changes the world. Tune in tonight on NBC. (I'd watch it over Jay Leno five more times a week.)

Anyway, here's what protagonist Mike Boone learned about most shaving creams. One, they're mostly air. And two, after air, they're mostly glycerin or oil.

The solution, Cremo Cream has no air and no trace ingredients: it's a rich cream made only from significant, noticeably beneficial ingredients. It contains very unique, super-lubricating, highly-slippery molecules that have been specially compounded with other truly powerful skin conditioners. Together, they make your blade glide smoothly over your skin like an ice skate; they make your hairs stick out and stand up straight so your blade cuts them more deeply; and they nourish and moisturize your skin. Your skin will look and feel astonishingly soft and smooth. Your shave will last longer. Better than anything else you have ever used.

And Mike must guard that "unique, super-lubricating, highly-slippery molecules" secret with his life, while simultaneously getting his kids to school, loving his wife, and dealing with a very wacky neighbor. I'm telling you, it's going to be huge.

Anyway, we just got a in a couple tubes of Cremo Cream and we're looking forward to trying them out. Check back in soon for our review, and lobby NBC for a shaving-related crime drama.

Cremo Cream is $8 for a 6oz tube.
