        This would get 5 stars, but I have a problem with the packaging. Let me start by saying that I only use this shaving cream, it's the best!. BUT...Origins used to sell it in the tube or in a much larger plastic tub/jar. Bring back the big jars!! We are men that need to lather up our faces with this several days of the week. It isn't a special night-time treatment that you are selling to the ladies.

        I would like to start by saying that if more people actually reviewed the quality of this product instead of whining about the packaging, I probably wouldn't have wasted my money. Please continue reading for an actual product assessment:

        I am active duty military and am required to shave daily, so I have a decent amount of experience with the whole ordeal. I used cartridge razors and various canned shave "creams" for the first few years, but had constant irritation and discomfort, so I switched to brushes and shave soap with a double-edge safety razor about two and a half years ago and have been immeasurably happier. I've been considering trying out a cream since soaps can sometimes dry out during the summer when it's hot in the morning, so I gave this product a try. I was unpleasantly surprised to learn that it does not lather at all - I expected very little, but none at all was disheartening. But it smelled nice and it felt good on my skin, so I cleaned off my razor head, popped in a brand new blade, and started on my first pass. It was... meh. I honesty get more tugging and overall "drag" with this than I do with plain old conditioner, which I have had to use in a pinch. I've given this stuff a fair chance, having used it seven or eight times now, always with the grain to ensure minimal resistance, and I just don't care for it. It doesn't get very close, the friction is infuriating at 5 in the morning, and I have noticeable stubble just a few hours later. If you have super fine hair or you want to use it somewhere that isn't very sensitive like your armpits or legs, feel free to go crazy. But if you have thick facial hair like me and have no choice but to shave every day, spend the $17 on a decent soap and brush - you'll never go back.

        Doesn't lather well

        By 

        from Salt Lake City, UT, USA

        Comments about Origins Blade Runner Energizing Shave Cream:

        Nice refreshing aroma. But it doesn't lather up enough to provide for a good shaving experience. It also irritates my skin a little. I stopped using it after 4 tries.

            I use Blade Runner since 1998 and is the best shaving cream in the market. It has three properties: protection against irritation, smooth shaving and comfort after shave. 120 % recommended

                My husband is a very budget conscious shopper. Normally he buys only the least expensive stuff. He got a tube of this shave cream as a gift a few years ago and he thinks this is the best stuff ever! He can't live without it now. No other shave product is as good as Origins. I hope they never discontinue it!

                Comments about Origins Blade Runner Energizing Shave Cream:

                As just about every other reviewer has written....this is a great product that is poorly packaged. I understand, from older reviews, that there used to be a bigger container that allowed for easier access as the tube empties. Why was that done away with, and why not return to it?? PLEASE make a change to the packaging!!

                Not Your Average Shaving Cream

                Comments about Origins Blade Runner Energizing Shave Cream:

                I purchased this product as a gift for my husband several years ago, and now I have him hooked. Just the other day we were traveling, and he keeps an Edge travel size foam shaving cream in his overnight travel bag. He absolutely MISSED his Blade Runner. He told me he's spoiled now, and no other shaving cream works as well on his face. He now has one for home and one for his travel bag. So, buy this product for your man...he won't regret it.

                Comments about Origins Blade Runner Energizing Shave Cream:

                My husband loves this shaving cream, but as others have stated, he has a problem with the packaging. A full third or more of the cream cannot be dispensed from the tube, so to get it, he cuts open the tube when it will no longer squeeze out. There must be a better way.

                    This product works exceptionally well in the winter, or on sensitive skin on the body; I wish that it had a bit more body to it when wetted down. I prefer gel shave creams. Still, this is a nice, luxe option for a friction-free shave.

                    Best shaving cream, been using it for years! Please, please, please bring back the big jar!!!!! The tube doesn't last long and is so hard & annoying to get out when it's getting low.

                        I received a free trial size of this product while purchasing other Origin products last year and gave it to my son-in-law in his stocking for Christmas. Now mind you he is one of those guys that thinks products like this are "girly" and he never uses anything except soap or the drugstore type of shaving cream. Anyway, my daughter told me he didn't use it for the longest time but then decided to try it once. HE FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!!! Now that is all he uses. My daughter told me that is what he wants for Christmas this year. LOL Funny how men change their mind once they try something new. So, being the wise and loving mother-in-law, that will be one of his gifts, but this time I bought him the large size. The scent is nice and soft enough that it will not make the man smell perfumy. It makes his face feel really smooth and there is no irritation from the razor as there was with what he used before.

                        Buy it, try it out, don't like it, send it back, that simple. But odds are you won't be sending it back.
