To get a good shave we need a good shaving cream. Here we’ll review the Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Super-Slick shaving cream, a premium product that not only has a big name but also helps you get an ultra-comfortable shave. This cream won the Best Shave Cream award of Esquire’s 2007 Grooming Awards, and luckily their formula has kept the same quality since. Read on to learn what it offers and where you can buy it online.
To begin let’s take a look at the features of this shave cream:
- Shave cream provides superior razor glide and reduces irritation and cuts
- Water-soluble silicone beads minimizes razor drag
- Natural citrus and mint fragrance without any perfumes
- Doesn’t contain alcohol or menthol
The Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Super-Slick Shave Cream is a different type of cream, it doesn’t foam up on your face like other brands, so it is applied with your fingers. I think a better term to describe this product would be a “shaving lotion”, but it doesn’t matter, it works great providing you a super close shave with minimal effort.
The cream is opalescent white, but changes when it comes in contact with the skin. The citrus and mint fragrances give it a nice, refreshing scent.
Using it is very simple, just moisten your skin with water and then apply the shaving cream, massaging the skin for about a minute to let its ingredients provide you the most benefits. This cream will not dry quickly so you won’t need to reapply it after the first time. Just a little bit of this cream will last you for your entire shaving session.
The thing that I loved the most about this shaving cream is the degree of protection it brings. The razor glides easily over your skin, and the blade is able to cut the beard quickly. As a matter of fact, you barely notice you are shaving, it seem as if you are just caressing your face with the razor, but the results speak for themselves! Your face will end up smooth and free of irritation. It seems that the ingredient used for this is an organic micro silicone called Dimethicone, which minimizes razor friction to the max.
This cream is very easy to clean off the razor. It doesn’t clog up between the blades of a modern razor such as the Mach 3, just rinse with water and the excess cream will be gone, along with the bits of shaved beard. This can help you save precious minutes in the morning! It is also a great shaving cream to use along an electric shaver, providing the perfect lubrication.
Being a “premium” shaving cream, don’t expect it to be cheap, but at around $20 it has a nice price for the quality it brings. Especially considering that there are higher priced creams with results that are not as good as the ones provided by Billy Jealousy.
Billy Jealousy’s Hydroplane shave cream is one of the best shaving creams we have reviewed on this web site, which provides perfect lubrication and protection whether you are using a classic, a modern or an electric razor. True, it costs more than other shaving creams in the market, but it is worth every dollar you pay for it – and it lasts for months! If you want a super close shave with ZERO irritation, get this cream!
