Rated 5 out of 5Â by hippotek Blade Runner rules
After having tried the charcoal mask for skin refinement, I was intrigued by the quality of origins products and company ethics, so I went to get a sample of Blade Runner.
My oh my, this shaving creme is outright AMAZING.
I do not understand the guys complaining about needing "the bigger jar", The yield of this creme, which just needs to applied as a super thin film for a clear shave, is about 10x that of traditional shaving gel or foam.
Even more impressive though is the quality of the shave. My facial hair grows fast, to the complete dismay of my girlfriend. I am an early riser, so I usually shave in the wee hours of the morning... by lunch time I have usually turned into an 80 grit sandpaper, which could shred the skin of your thighs...
Not with Blade Runner!
Using the exact same razor as every other day it allows for a much closer shave. Even 12 hours after shaving I am still smooth and the next morning, there is hardly enough hair to justify an encounter with my blade :)
I LOVE this product. It makes me happy, it makes the woman in my life happy, and puts less strain on the environment than conventional shaving products (smaller packaging, no propellant, higher yield) while beating them in the one thing that counts the most: the closeness of the shave :)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by westbezerkeley Bring back the big jar!!
This would get 5 stars, but I have a problem with the packaging. Let me start by saying that I only use this shaving cream, it's the best!. BUT...Origins used to sell it in the tube or in a much larger plastic tub/jar. Bring back the big jars!! We are men that need to lather up our faces with this several days of the week. It isn't a special night-time treatment that you are selling to the ladies.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MatthewM Love the cream
I love the cream and it gives a wonderful shave. I have not bought it since the larger tubs are gone of the market, please bring them back. I always keep one of the small tubes in the travel bag, TSA compliant!, but the 5oz tube is wasteful for everyday use as you just cannot get so muck of the cream out of the packaging.
5 star product minus 1 star for taking the large tub off the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 Because of the package
I'm being redundant here, but the packaging for this great product is terrible. The large tub was perfect for long-term use. Origins also used to carry a TSA-friendly size. But now they carry neither. This size leaves far too much cream in the tube, as other reviewers have noted. It's kind of like having a nice car, but the wheels are out of alignment , so it's no fun to drive.
