Dragging a blade across your face every day doesn't have to be a grind. Reinvent the lost art of smooth shaving with Hydroplane Shave Cream: a rich, technologically advanced, foamless cream that keeps you looking sharp and feeling noticed. After all, sometimes it isn't nice to play rough.
Wash face with warm water, massage a quarter-sized amount of Hydroplane Shave Cream, a foamless cream, onto wet face, shave, and then rinse with warm water. Want to heat things up? Blend with an equal amount of Hot Towel Pre-Shave Treatment before you whip out the razor. CONSTANTLY ADD WARM WATER TO HYDROPLANE ON FACE TO INCREASE SLICKNESS OF FORMULATION. Suave and efficient, Hydroplane protects against razor burn, nicks, bumps and ingrown hairs.

"The best shaving lubricant I have ever used." -Dennis Penner, HeadShaver.org

Why should I switch from my can of shave cream foam to Hydroplane Shave Cream?
Traditional foam shave creams are comprised mainly of air and tiny bubbles. These tiny bubbles provide the cushion between your face and a razor. Unfortunately, they don't provide much cushion or lubrication which often results in razor drag, nicks and ingrown hairs. Hydroplane Shave Cream, on the other hand, is comprised of millions of beads of water-soluble, micro-silicone. This ingredient provides much more lubrication which results in greater razor glide. The water-soluble part means that the product does not break down when it comes into contact with water. Instead, it becomes slicker and slicker, ensuring a close but comfortable shave. It also does not stain clothes.
How much product should I use?
Apply a quarter-sized amount to wet face. Add warm water continuously to face to slicken formula. Add more product too if you like for added protection.
Does it have a fragrance?
There is no added fragrance in Hydroplane Shave Cream. It does have a natural fragrance due to the orange, grapefruit, lime and bergamot oils in the product.
Hydroplane Shave Cream is pricier than some of the other shave creams I've seen. Is it still a good value?
Yes, it is an excellent value because you need very little product in order to experience a great shave. An 8oz bottle can last for several months.
Does it contain any alcohol?
There is no alcohol in Hydroplane. Alcohol is a skin irritant.
Does it contain Menthol?
No Menthol was left out of this product. While Menthol triggers a nice cooling effect, we believe it over stimulates skin during the shaving process, when the skin is most vulnerable.
I've seen Benzocaine in some competitive products. Does your shave cream contain this ingredient?
No we left out Benzocaine as well. Benzocaine is a numbing agent. We feel that our shave cream is such a superior product that we don't need to include a numbing agent in it. Shaving with a product that includes Benzocaine may also result in applying too much razor pressure while you shave which may be harmful to your skin.
Our three recommendations are Gillette Fusion ProGlide, Gillette Mach3 and Schick Quattro.
"Our hero product. It's by far our #1 seller: a unique pre-shave oil and shave cream in one. Shaving irritation affected me all through high school, college and grad school. I later found out that about 80% of men and women experience shaving irritation, according to the American Dermatological Assocation. Hydroplane is the perfect remedy for all the classic problems associated with shaving. I think products like this along with improvements in razor technology have encouraged a lot more men and women to switch back to razor blades over electric razors."
