I received Hydroplane as a gift. A couple of caveats and you'll get a great shave:
-The product is foamless but that actually makes it better.
-You don't use much! I only use a little more than a quarter-sized of product.
-Like the directions say: adding more warm water makes the formula slicker.
I shave with a Mach3 razor and got a great shave! I didn't have any of the redness I typically get from other shave products. I meet with clients all the time and I don't have to worry about post-shave concerns!
I got this as a sample for my husband who has to shave every day. He has a little coarser hair and thicker facial hair. I told him that this product has such rave reviews and was so excited for him to use it and love it! He put it on and refused to finish his shave with it. He said that it didn't help at all that and that the razor tugged, that there was no smooth barrier. He even cut himself really badly. It was a brand new razor too as he uses a fresh razor every time he shaves. :(

Great for women and men.

I am a sucker for sales, so when I saw this for half off... I went ahead & bought it, despite it being a "men's" shave product.
I get razor bumps pretty often, espec when I shave more frequently (like now in the summer)... let me just say that I'M BLOWN AWAY!!!! I swear to you that I am nearly bump-free after only just a couple weeks of use! I'm forever loyal to this product if these are the end results!! At the very least, it's worth trying!...and you can always return it if you don't like it!
My only con is that it can easily clog up your razor to the point of being realllyyyt annoying if you use too much. There was def alil bit of a learning curve for me with figuring how much product to use. You definitely don't need a lot, that's for sure. I usually put it on little by little until the area is lightly covered, then let it sit for a minute to fully soak in before I add more, or start shaving. That definitely helps me not to use too much since it takes a second to absorb. Also, if you use it in the shower to shave your legs (or whatever), don't have the water running against you/hitting your skin - or it will just rinse off. Then you'll have to use more & end up using too much again. lol it's a process, but it's easy to master & it's absolutely worth the end results!

My husband uses it & recommends to his friends & sometimes has me pick one up for him to give them

My husband loves it & has had me purchase some for some of his friends that don't have an Ulta in their area. Now they are believers in it's effectiveness without causing irritation.

Great for my sensitive skin

My husband prefers this product over several cheaper or money equivalent products. He would like Ulta to carry Hot Towel, the pre-shave by Billy Jealousy.

Easy to apply easy cleanup

My husband really likes the Billy Jealousy line and has been using for a few years now. The Hydroplane cream is one of his favorite shave creams, and he has tried MANY.
oklady from Oklahoma
My husband loves this. He has had me repurchase this many times and uses no other brand for shaving. His beard grows very fast and is very thick but needs to stay clean shaven for his job. He says he feels he gets a much smoother result and a closer save with this than any other shaving cream. Easy to use & you don't need a lot so it lasts a long time.

I typically shave in the shower and I've used both a safetyrazor and a model with multiple blades built in. Regardless of the type of razor, this is the only shaving cream I can use that doesn't leave my skin irritated.

Silicone based smooth shave...better than foam or gels...

As a woman, I use it to shave my legs. I figure if it got a good rating for men's faces, it should be great for my super sensitive skin on my legs, underarms and bikini area.

Makes my skin smooth.

I am I women and I use it to shave my legs and underarms. I used to have constant razor burn and irritation, but not any more. Fabulous product!
jlroyals from GA
I bought this for my fianc� and he absolutely loved it! He said it gave him the best and easiest shave! I love it too! I have really sensitive skin when I shave my legs and using this, my legs don't get irritated at all! Great product!
Jim Meyers from Indianapolis, IN
This stuff goes on and off smooth but it smells horrible.
snowzoe from Denver
I tend to shop men's shaving products to find products that can help me manage my course hair and sensitive skin on my legs. This is the best shaving cream I've ever found for my legs, especially the bikini area. It's amazing, I've been looking for something like this forever.
Melissa from Pa
I bought this for my husband and he absolutely loves it. I tried it and it is now my favorite for shaving my legs as well. This far exceeds all other shave creams I have ever tried.
Joe Hardona from Philadelphia, PA
This is without doubt the best shave cream I have ever used. Period. No cons.
Joy from New Bern, NC
I know this is supposed to be a men's shave cream but it leaves my legs smoother than any women's product out there!
TheMuppetShow25 from DC Metro Area
Husband bought this and I have been stealing it from him. It leaves his face very smooth with no visible irritation and does the same for me. I love the light scent. For the price, the quantity of product isn't bad as it is seeming to last long.
