Most Popular Shaving Cream: Barbasol

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Taking 35% of your over 7000 votes, Barbasol takes home the honor of being your choice for Best Shaving Cream. Created in 1919 and used by 1 in 4 men, Barbasol’s iconic design has become the poster child for shaving cream. Plus, it’s cheap.

If you’re looking for something to apply with your shaving brush, Proraso was your second place choice, has been around almost as long as Barbasol, and recently stripped the parabens out of their formulation.

None of the five contenders were all natural products, so if you’re looking for something in that vein, we’re fans of Pacific Shaving’s Caffeinated Shave Cream (which our Promotions Team sometimes runs a deal on), and John Master Organics, among others.
