Aside – ShaveMOB Tea Tree Shaving Cream

Listen to this article

shaving-cream-1The “shave clubs” have been slowly expanding their razor line with shaving creams and soaps.  Dollar Shave Club was first with their “shave butter.”  Harry’s followed suit with a shaving cream and a shaving gel.  Now another shave club, ShaveMOB, has upped the ante with their Tea Tree Shaving Cream.


ShaveMOB came to Sharpologist’s attention a couple years ago in an article about Gillette Fusion alternatives.  The article’s testers thought pretty well of them too, so when they announced a shave cream with tea tree I gave it a try: even though it’s a “brushless” product (you can use a brush but that didn’t really change the performance for me) I’m a sucker for tea tree….  🙂
It’s really more of a “mint” kick though, with that scent predominating.  But tea tree is there in enough of a concentration to make a noticeable difference in the moisturizing feel of my skin after a shave.
And from the performance perspective it works very well for me–lubrication and cushioning is very good, even in my “hard” water.
Ingredients: water, glycerin, sodium cocoyl isethionate, sodium lauryl sarcosinate, aloe vera leaf juice, cetraryl alcohol, polysorbate 60, stearic acid, myristic acid, vitamin E, peppermint oil, orange oil, tea tree oil, allantoin, acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crossolymer, phenoxyethanol, ethylexy/glycerin, potassium sorbate, sodium hydroxide.
Supply is currently limited as they build up inventory and today is the last day you can order some for delivery before Christmas.

  1. Tea Tree i
    oil seems to be a polarizing scent. I love it and it has anti staphylococcal activity which is a benefit in this era of antibiotic resistance. I miss the Real Shaving Cream version made by Creightons, which had no mint but it has disappeared for Rite Aid and ordering it from England adds price and delay. How does the skin care compare to that cream?

    1. Larry, it’s been so long since I used the Creightons RSC that I don’t recall the skin care. However I’m still hoarding some vintage Coates Tea Tree, which I really like, and the ShaveMOB cream holds up to it in everything but scent for me.
