C.O. Bigelow Premium Shave Cream

Having experience both C.O. Bigelow products and a shave from an Italian barber, we have no problem recommending this product as the “closest, coolest, most comfortable shave on Earth.” Are you ever going to get an experience that lives up to that hype when you’re taking care of business in your own bathroom? Probably not. But the creamy, softening lather formula from this C.O. Bigelow Premium Shave Cream is still the closest razor shave you’re going to get to an Italian shave outside of Italy. For our money, it’s worth it. $12

Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream

Established more than a century and a half ago, Taylor of Old Bond Street was established on the same corner that would ultimately become home to Geo. F. Trumper, Taylor and Davidoff. In other words, this brand knows a thing or two about creating great products despite the fact it has a history that dates back to long before any of us alive. This particular product, the Sandalwood Shaving Cream, combines an ultimate hold that maintains shine and brightness with the rich, woody blend of sandalwood and cedar that’s become a namesake of the brand. In other words, you’re shaving with modern history. $17
