This product is excellent. It lubricates well, washes off easily, and doesn't make your skin feel funny. I use double edge safety razors rather than cartridges and I still frequently use this product. It is great for when you need a quick shave and don't have the time to mess with soaps or creams.

Yeah I just tried a can and it works pretty good but i got lucky getting mine at the local Dollar Store on sale tho I prefer to buy from Amazon when i can.

No to tell the truth it DOESNT shave as good or as close as Musgo Real or Proraso but it's the best so far of all the Foams I've tried and while it's not barber shop quality its not far behind so if you want a good Quick Shave with a blade then this may be a good way to go.

OH yeah to the guys who griped about the price.

Either buy the 12 packs from Amazon or wait for a sale at your local Dollar Store!.

Yeah I used to gripe too until I learned to watch for the discount sales and from then on I became a power buyer.

Believe me it works.....

Ah, the days of boyhood. Looking up at your dad or grandpa, admiring the skill with which he wields the razor. The hot water steaming upwards, carrying with it the scent of his shaving cream. Brings back memories, huh?

Well, for over a year now I'd been using Gillette Foamy Regular to great satisfaction. It smells spicy--think Christmas--and lubricates the blade well. The scent went nicely with my Every Man Jack aftershave cooling gel (you can really get the Christmas scents going).

But I always had one gripe about the Regular formula Gillette Foam: the burn.

I haven't figured out why, but it burned my skin. I have eczema, so shaving burns anyways, but phew. Still, I kept using it because the price was right and I don't like the gels. My last can of the regular was running out, so I was going to pick up a new can.

I got to the store and this Sensitive formulation foam was sitting right next to it. I figure "what the heck, I'll give it a shot."

Well, I just got back from using it and holy tacos, Batman. That smell punched me right in the face; it was the smell that used to waft up from the sink when my dad would shave and I'd look on, wishing I had some manly stubble to demolish with a miniature axe.

So, indeed, I love it, but I'm biased.

Impartially I can say that it goes on smoother and seems thicker overall than the regular formulation, and instead of burning my skin it cooled it. It lubricated well, though that manly stubble I always dreamed of is, in reality, about half as dense as I'd wished it to be.

All in all I can definitely recommend this.

One thought though. The smell, no matter how fantastic it is to me, is fairly faint but lingers, and it could be judged by some younger people as smelling too much like something their grandpa would wear. I still love it though.

I didn't buy this shaving cream for its nostalgic value, but every time I shave with this cream, I think of Dad. This is what guys used for shaving before all the fancy gels with newfangled smells. So close the bathroom door, stream some 50's music on your iPhone, lather up your face with this thick, rich, and fragrant cream, and let your bathroom become a time machine that brings back memories you didn't know existed. The old routine of shaving will be your momentary escape from the present. It's like aromatherapy, man style. Then go about your day, knowing that you get to do it all over again tomorrow.

This stuff hands down is the best chaving cream I have ever used. So much easier to apply that the gel stuff and the bottle seems to last a good while. This comibed with the mach 3 turbo is the best shave you can get. It never leaves me with razor burn.

I have been using this Gillette Foamy Shave Cream for years because I have sensitive skin. It goes on smooth and foamy and helps my razor glide along my legs and body to prevent nicks and cuts. I use this shaving cream on my entire body with the Gillette Fusion Manual Men's Razor Blades and they work great together for smooth shave with no irritation or bleeding. If you have sensitive skin, this shaving cream is an excellent shaving cream and is a good price here at Amazon.com

I just used a razor for the first time today along with this cream, and it keeps my face well hydrated for a very comfortable shave! The hair just comes right off! And the smell is awesome, almost like an aftershave smell! Didn't get any cuts or nicks or anything!

Gillette Foamy Shaving Cream is reliable and amazing! It works every single time I use it. I can't say the same about razor blades, that's for sure. What's really awesome is that if you were to buy a 12-pack of this stuff, it quite possibly could last you literally *years* (assuming you use all 12 bottles on yourself). I can say for me personally, owning 12 bottles of shaving cream would probably last me over 15 years, seriously (especially a top notch brand like Gillette). I shave approximately every 4-5 days and use very little each time. I'm not even sure if shaving cream would last 15 years, but hey, it'd at least mean I'm secure for a long stretch without having to worry about buying more. Highly recommended.

Let me be clear: we use this 99% of the time as a sensory-activity material. As far as it goes for arts, crafts, and kid stuff, it's amazing. As for shaving, my husband says "he can't think of a thing shaving cream is supposed to do that it doesn't do". We did use it once as a bath-time-fun material when we were out of bubble bath. The kids were thrilled; I was overwhelmed by the scent - but that was an ENTIRE can dispensed in a small room over the course of two 15-minute baths.
