I've been using this since I was in my early twenties and it has provided smooth and refreshing shaves with very little irritation. As an African American male whose hair's wave pattern contributes or causes razor bumps, I appreciate the product's ability to heal nicks and cuts while shaving as well as it being able to hold moisture at the skin's surface where it counts, thus providing an incredibly smooth shave. In conjunction with the Post Shave Healer and Clinique's line of exfoliating prouducts, I never suffer from skin irritation from shaving, ingrown hairs or razor bumps. Thank you!
I love Cream Shave. I really do, but I've stopped using it ever since they changed the packaging from the old conventional toothpaste tube style to the nearly unusable short, fat stubby thing they sell today. I had used Clinique continuously since it first came on the market, so they've lost another loyal customer. I have two main gripes about the "new" tube. First, it's nearly impossible to squeeze out the last twenty percent of the contents because the tube is very stout at the neck and the tube top and, unlike the old screw off top, snaps off (and it's hard to snap-the top is just not meant to be removed to squeeze the tube top). This top, coupled with the fat, stiff new shape of the top, makes it significantly more difficult to force out the last part of the tube contents-more irritating effort than is worth it. Second, as has been well stated buy another reviewer, the new stubby shape is harder to grab in the shower, harder to manipulate with one hand and harder to squeeze out a usable portion. I'll add that I don't think the new shape packs well into a conventional men's dopp style toilet kit. The old tube was easy to use, easy to squeeze, easy to pack and easier to completely empty. Why they changed from the old tube to the new one is beyond me-it certainly did not result in a "better" package. So join me with the other reviewer critical of the package. A competing company with the blue tube still has the terrific old style conventional tube package for its shave cream, and that's where I've moved. The shave cream is not as good as Clinique's, but the package is way better, so much so that I've actually considered trying to find a way to put the Clinique contents into the competitor's empty tube.

It's a good shaving cream but overpriced. You can get the same for a lower price. If it was lowered, I'd buy it more often.

I bought it for my husband, it does what it says and no more! it makes shaving easier and leave skin a little bit moisturized.

Save time by rapidly covering your face and create the conditions for the smoothest shaving I ever had. It provides healing, making after shave lotion optional, what is another time and money saver.

My bf has very sensitive skin and was very reluctant to try this product but he ended up loving it and buying a second. He says it gives him a very close shave and his skin feels really good afterwards. Although he does complain that he can't understand why a company like Clinique can't get the container right. He said it becomes very difficult to get product out as it empties and you'll definitely lose product when you're "done" with it. He's going to try another product because of it.

I was so hopeful for this product! I bought this for my husband since ai am trying to get him to use better products for his face. He loved the smell and menthol feel but said that it didn't lather much for him. Also, the container needs some help. He gave it a 4 out of 5 stars but will most likely not buy again

Hello Clinique men team! Could you please listen to your male clients and make a better container for your shave cream. It's an excellent product with 5 star reviews. That alone would spark an interest. I'm suggesting that you make a tub type container so the lid can be screwed off just like your body exfoliating cream container is designed. Please consider this and I would like someone contact me on this PLEASE. I have been this product for many years and I even suggest it to my friends and family!

My husband loves this cream. The skin is then soft and smooth. No chemical odors. That's cool.
TammyeJo from Bossier City, LA
I purchased this as a gift for my husband. He has used a bargain drug store brand his entire life...the foamy, minty smelling one that's been around for a century. Recently he has had some skin irritation on his face which he has blamed on everything from poison ivy to a food allergy. I hate to tell him that as you get older...things change. Anyway, he started using Cream Shave and within a couple of weeks his skin is clear of irritation, completely. Now, he comes out of the bathroom and tells me to feel how smooth his face is. It's adorable. We've disposed of the cans of harsh foamy shave cream. No going back now.

Desert Rose from Tucson, AZ
Bought this for my hubby and he loves it. It conditions his skin and makes his beard more manageable to trim. It smell so fresh too. Got it as a sample and he liked it so I order him the full size. Great gift idea for dad's too!
Chuck from NC
I've been using an electric razor for decades, all the drugstore shave creams and gels I tried always left me with razor burn and breakouts after using it. It's been 3-weeks of shaving with this and no bumps or rashes.

Bought for my dad and he likes it
His wife from Greenville, NC
My husband has tried several kinds. This is by far his favorite. He would recommend.
JohnC15 from Indiana
I like it. I'm not crazy about it. I received a smaller tube as part of a kit. I probably wouldn't spend money on a full size. It does have a really nice, tingly, minty fell, which is soothing.

Daily use, good stuff..
Kim L from Dayton
My husband loves this and he has somewhat sensitive skin. He breaks out with most everything and this did the trick. His beard is very course and grows quickly. This give a great close shave with no irritation. I always buy two so he won't run out.

I had read about this Clinigue for men cream shave in one of the many online chats and people had very good feedback on this shaving cream, so we stopped by Belk and they had sold out, well thats a good sign well the nice lady gave me this little sample and loked at it and was like thats all i need for one shave? she said yes and gave me one more! well she was wrong it was good for 5 shaves WOW! well i purchased and love the feeling during and after the wonderful shave! I actually use less product and love the feeling and shave less, yes shave less and i feel i get a better and closer shave! Last note it doesn't have a smell and i like that, so it doesnt mess up my love affair with Fine Colgnes! Try it you will not use anything else!

I love cream shave for men and have used it for probably about 30 years. I am 62 years old and am very happy with the Cream Shave product. A few years back Clinique changed the packaging of the cream shave tube to a shorter tube made of stiffer plastic. When you get down to about 25% of the product left in the tube it is very difficult to squeeze the product out of the tube. I really miss the taller softer plastic that you used before. I would think that the majority of your customers who use this product are baby boomers like myself, seeing as most of the Gen X'ers and millennials have beards and only trim from time to time. Us older guys with arthritis in our hands can't squeeze the product out as easily as we did when we were younger. Would there be a way to remedy this?
gotosimon from Livermore, CA
No other shaving cream holds up and allows me to shave as smooth as Clinique's. Been using it for 10+ years. I do miss the slender tube vs the short fat. But does that really matter when the product works so well?
