    Best shaving cream on the market today. I buy this for my husband but sometimes use it on my legs as well.
    Doesn't break you out, has a slight numbing sensation for those of us who don't like the feeling of shaving, no razor bumps or irritation, moisturizing, and smells great. The cost seems high but you use VERY little product so it lasts, and it comes in a handy tube instead of a metal can that leaves rings on my shower surround. The only con? It is hard to find. But now that I know Beauty.com sells Common Man, I'll be buying it more often. Maybe I'll even buy an extra tube for myself and stop stealing his :)

    I love philosophy, but this is one I will not order again. It can't compare to the basic womens shaving gels. It has no lather, and is too thin. If you want something to shave JUST YOUR LEGS with, this might be something to try. However, do not use on your bikini area! As for the numbing sensation, I did not feel that.

        Comments about philosophy the common man, extra-comfort shaving cream, 3.3 oz:

        This is one of my favorite shaving creams! I do NOT have scensitive skin but this is effective for all. It does not lather (and therefore is not as drying) and works best with a brush. I just rub it on most of the time and LOVE the slight tingle feel it gives. This is SO worthwhile and has a decent price point. The only product I prefer over this one is the now discontinued MD Skincare option.

            The shave itself was close and it did leave the skin feeling good. HOWEVER, the cream jammed up the razor and made the task take twice as long as it normally does. My normal shave gel is MUCH better and a lot cheaper too!

            I love this shaving cream. I do like the numbing aspect of this product. I have used many shaving creams and gels, and this is one of the best. The price is a bit steep, but worth it.

            I bought this for my husband, but he didn't like it and hated the numbing feeling it gave. So I tried using it for my legs, and I am not a fan.
