Product Description

Product Description

Dragging a blade across your face every day doesn't have to be a grind. Reinvent the lost art of smooth shaving with Hydroplane Shave Cream, a rich, technologically-advanced, foamless cream that keeps you looking sharp and feeling noticed. After all, sometimes it isn't nice to play rough. Traditional foam shave creams are comprised mainly of air and tiny bubbles. These tiny bubbles provide the cushion between your face and a razor. Unfortunately, they don't provide much cushion or lubrication which often results in razor drag, nicks and ingrown hairs.

Hydroplane Shave Cream, on the other hand, is comprised of millions of beads of water-soluble, micro-silicone. This ingredient provides much more lubrication which results in greater razor glide. The water-soluble part means that the product does not break down when it comes into contact with water. Instead, it becomes slicker and slicker, ensuring a close but comfortable shave.

Ingredients

Purified Water, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Glycereth-7, Cocamide DEA, C12-15 Alykyl Benzoate, PEG/PPG-14/14 Dimethicone, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Cetearyl Alcohol, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Methylparaben, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Oil, Polyparaben, Zingiber Officanale (Ginger) Oil, Diazolidinyl Urea

The best shaving lubricant I've ever used. 16 Mar 2006
By Dennis - Published on Amazon.com
Billy Jealousy's Hydroplane shave cream is a lotion-style shave cream (ie. it doesn't foam when applied to your skin). According to the packaging, it's made up of millions of "micro sillicone beads". It does have a slightly gritty feel to it (though nothing at all uncomfortable), which makes the "sillicone bead" description sound reasonable.

Applying Hydroplane is pretty simple: just rub it into your skin after you've thoroughly moistened it with water, then shave normally. Hydroplane is persistent, so it won't dry up like some shaving lubricants, and it doesn't require any additional water after it's been applied. It'll easily last through your entire shave.

Lubrication, irritation protection, and nick protection are all excellent. Hydroplane washes out of your blade very easily, too, with one of the lowest gunk factors I've experienced in a shaving lubricant. As shaving lubricants go, I can find no fault with this one.

Hydroplane is a premium product in every sense of the word. A 236ml (8 ounce) bottle retails for $20 from the Billy Jealousy website (at this writing). The bottle's a good size, and it'll last a while (you only need a small amount for each shave), but it's still very expensive.

Overall, Billy Jealousy's Hydroplane shave cream may be the best shaving lubricant I've ever used (and I've used dozens of them over the years). It's expensive, but it's worth the price, in my opinion. If you're looking for a very close, comfortable shave with no irritation, Hydroplane is very much worth trying out. I am impressed.

The Best Shave Cream, Period. 9 Jun 2007
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This stuff is amazing. Without a doubt, the smoothest shave I have ever had. Don't be put off by the price. A little of this stuff goes a long way. I use one tube of it every 10 to 11 months. However, DO NOT PURCHASE the Hot Towel lotion that is made to go along with it. It actually will actually make the shave cream less effective. The hydroplane shave is fine all on its own. Buy this stuff now!

Innovative, Effective, and DAMN Cool! 23 Feb 2006
By Joshua Gordon - Published on Amazon.com
I've been using Hydroplane (along with the Hot Towel pre-shave treatment and Shaved Ice after shave) for just under a year now, and couldn't be happier! After reading a review of the Hot Towel in a national magazine (I believe it was Stuff), I decided to switch from a competing product, and give this brand a shot...

Hydroplane is great stuff! I can't remember the last time I had such a close shave with ZERO irritation. My facial hair grows in several different directions, and no matter what products I've tried before, I've always been faced with red face, ingrown hairs, and other various problems. Not any more!

You can actually feel the difference the silicone beads provide, as the shave is close, smooth, and comfortable.

Beyond that, the rest of the Billy Jealousy products have been superior to anything I've used in the past. I highly recommend the Hot Towel, which really is like getting that hot towel shave from a barber, along with the Shaved Ice, with it's nice, cool clean feeling afterwards.

Great with an Electric 17 Nov 2008
By Charles Enfield - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I initially tried this product with a Mach-3 Turbo razor. Given the reviews and the price, the results were disappointing. I still experienced too much irritation on my neck to shave every day. Later, I tried it with a Panasonic wet-dry electric shaver and this seems like the perfect lube for that application. It doesn't make the electric shave any closer, but there is no irritation to my face or neck, and no build-up on the blades and foil.

Good Shaving Cream 31 Aug 2006
By Keith K. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It works pretty well and gives me a close shave. It definitely beats regular shaving cream! However last Christmas I was given some L'Occitane shaving oil, which I used under regular shaving cream and I got a smoother shave than with this product alone.
