Shaving is making a comeback. Good shaving, that is. The use of bargain shave gels and foams is taking a back seat to more sophisticated products that are also better for your skin. Okay, so you don’t have time every day to lather up with a badger hair and ceramic brush, but you do have the mindset to make your morning shave more than just a ritual to speed through. Introducing Ursa Major Stellar Shave Cream, an absolutely luxurious shave cream that will have you rethinking your product of choice simply from its deeply satisfying scent. With aloe, birch and sunflower, along with organic Grand Fir and Ginger and Vetiver oils, this shave cream imparted a mild but noticeably pleasant smell. It’s certainly thick enough to stand up to tough beards but smooth enough to apply easily and rinse clean. It even worked wonders with a cold water shave, which I was thoroughly impressed with. Ursa Major makes you relish your morning shave, rather than dread it, and your face feels pretty damned great afterward. Made in the USA, it’s a tad more expensive that your run-of-the-mill shave cream, but that’s because it’s anything but. 5.1 oz is good for over 60 shaves.
