Review Overview

Natural Skin Care for Men Shave Cream would be worth considering as an emollient shaving cream if it didn’t contain so many irritating fragrant oils. Lemon peel, orange peel, patchouli, fir needle, and tangerine (among other offenders) may be natural, but they’re also naturally irritating, especially on skin that’s about to be shaved!


Get a close, smooth shave with this natural shave cream that soothes skin for long-lasting comfort. Calendula and linden extract calm skin irritation, while chamomile soothes and hydrates, leaving skin smooth, moisturized and looking its natural best.

Brand Overview

Strengths: Inexpensive.

Weaknesses: Many products have potent fragranced formulas; several formulas packaged in jars, which compromises their ingredients.

With humble beginnings in the town of Bangor, Maine, Burt's Bees is a brand focused on natural-themed, earth-friendly skincare. Unfortunately, in many cases, this also translates to less than beneficial formulas as not all of the natural ingredients used are helpful for skin.

Many of the plant extracts and oils used in these products, including orange oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, pine tar, alcohol, lime oil, and balsam peru, are problematic for skin and present a significant risk of irritation or a sensitizing reaction. Both the intriguing philosophy and inexpensive products are attractive, but it takes more than that to establish reliable products that are good for skin. It’s also important to consider the potential benefit (or potential harm) of the ingredients used.

There are some formulas to consider among the brand’s offerings, but some to be wary of—see our individual reviews on Burt’s Bees products for more details.
