Hello Gentlemen-

Through a recent sale via my insurance plan, I was able to get a number of "Organic" grooming products for free. Among the items I picked out was a Burt's Bees "Skincare for Men" travel kit. There were both shaving cream and aftershave included inside of the kit.

Does anyone have any experience with Burt's Bees products, especially their men's line?  I've tried it but I'm curious to know others opinions.

As for my results.. The shaving cream is a little weird. It doesn't generate a lather at all. I believe there are other shaving creams that are similar, so some men must prefer them. Aside from the (for me) disconcerting lack of lather, the shaving cream worked well. The scent is a little strong, but not overpowering while shaving . The primary oils, according to the packaging, are Calendula, Chamomile, and Linden. Overall, I think the shave was a bit closer than my usual with Art of Shaving cream, but that may just have been due to my paying extra attention due to the lack of lather.

The aftershave was another mixed-bag for me.  The scent is a bit stronger than I'd like, but pleasant. It did not irritate my usually sensitive skin. My problem? The aftershave liquid itself resembles.. shall I say, male discharge. It may be a bit childish of a reaction, but that was my first thought upon opening the tube.

As I asked before- anyone else have any experience with Burt's Bees?

All of the Burts' Bees' products I've used has been great stuff. I even Emailed the company, politely offering the suggestion that they carry a more complete line of Mens shaving products (particularly in terms of scents), and they responded almost immediately in a very professional and courteous manner.
I was less than impressed with their stuff. The aftershave balm was pretty good but I really didn't like much else.
Thanks for the feedback guys.
I've used it a few more times since my first post, and it's grown on me a little bit. I'm still not a big fan of the non-lathering shaving cream, however. I don't think I'm likely to stick with it as my core shaving products, but it hasn't been a bad experience over all.

Michael, good job on the e-mail about carrying more men's products. I think that's something more of us need to do- not necessarily to Burt's bees, but grooming product companies in general. I actually wrote a similar E-mail to Gillette, wondering if they might do some sort of "Retro" product line.
