After Justin sent me the Suavecito pomades, we talked a bit about him sending me their shaving line to review. He sent me pretty much everything else they carry to review and I’m starting with their shaving cream. By the way, make sure you check out Justin’s band, New Brigade out of California! They’re a good band! He also did some vocals for a band called Minority Unit, also a great band you should check out.
Their shaving cream comes in a pretty big plastic, amber colored tub with a white metal screw top lid. A few other creams come in this packaging and I really dig the packaging. It has just the one lid label, nothing on the sides of the container. The lid label kind of like their pomade label. It has a grey background with a shave brush in it. The Suavecito logo is in the center, then it has “shaving cream,” the weight and their website below that. Up on top is the ingredient list, and it has the brown border around the edge.
So I just dabbed and applied. It makes kind of a thick cream on your face when you spread it around with the brush. But it covers everything nicely, I do wish I was able to lather it though. I really like the big puffy clouds of lather. However, I do love the way this shaving cream feels on my face. It has the best cooling feeling when you apply it. Gotta love that menthol!
I shaved up and was surprised at how soft this stuff left my face. It had a nice cooling effect while shaving and it left a fresh feeling after I had shaved. My face was left really soft and clean feeling after I had finished shaving. Now somebody just needs to make a mint/menthol aftershave! Suavecito makes a menthol vanishing cream, which I think is like a balm, but I’d also love to see a liquid aftershave.
After shaving with it twice I’m liking this shaving cream a bit. I do wish it was a latherable cream like the Barber Side cream is, but I do like it. I love the way it cools my face during shaving and how smooth it leaves my face after shaving. So it’s definitely one I will be using again in the future. It better than those aerosol creams and some other non lather creams for sure. If you’re into these type of creams and like mint you should pick up a tub of this stuff! I will be reviewing another one of their shave products soon!
Stay fresh fellas
