The truth about the men's grooming industry
I didn't want to create these products. I had to.
To me, shaving and skin care are one and the same and as a barber I was so frustrated at the lack of products that truly addressed the specific needs of men's skin.
So I created Burke Avenue, a shaving and skincare line developed to moisturize, heal, and prevent irritation.
OUR AWARD-WINNING PRODUCTS
The shave cream and face balm was better than I expected. The moisture in the face balm lasted all day, I was very impressed and will definitely be telling all of my friends...
Best after-shave balm and moisturizer on the market!
I love this shave cream; by far the best I've used to shave my head. It produces a rich, thick lather that allows my single blade shaver to glide effortlessly over my lumpy head, and provides a baby smooth shave every time. A little goes a very long way, so I just need a light touch on my brush to cover my exceptional cranium. My head always feels nice and moisturized after, so in a pinch I can do a quick shave and go without needing to add additional products. Truly quality product.
I have a heavy beard and sensitive skin. A difficult combination for someone who likes a close shave (against the grain). Over the years I have tried Clinique for Men, L’Occitaine and The Art of Shaving. Now that I have discovered Craig the Barber, I am finished searching. This stuff sets up the beard for a close shave and also feels comfortable. A great combination.
I have seen a noticeable difference in the clarity and smoothness of my face. The only thing that has changed is my shaving cream...Burke Avenue!
I've been using the face balm for almost 4 months and it is amazing. I often struggle when it comes to shave, because of the frequent rashes I get on my neck; this has help me prevent the rash from appearing.
I have super dry skin, that only certain products work on. This one works!!
I travel a good bit throughout the year, often on short trips and loved having the travel size that I can now have in my carry on, and continue the same amazing shave cream experience I've come to love and expect with BA.
I knew it would be GREAT. That's why I ordered two. No doubt for me this is my Best shave product purchase, it last all night into the morning the effects are on point I have a small boutique of men's shave supplies from razors blades soaps and creams I've stored over the years. Burkes is my top shelf go to product in my den. Looking forward to a long Burke Ave relationship. Bless Up!
My husband Rick loves the shave cream. When I give him kisses he’s smooth now.
Great product, got 2nd one for office to use after going to the gym before work.
Outstanding product. Not too greasy, and absorbs accordingly. Doesn't take much to get the job done upon application. You've got a client for life here!
This shave cream is the creamiest, silkiest, smoothest shave cream that had ever touched my skin. It feels absolutely fantastic and works like a dream. Highly recommended
Having cleared a very high bar with his shave cream, Craig does it again with his fabulous Face Balm!
Very happy with the products, this is my second time ordering Burke Ave by Craig products and I doubt I'll use any other shaving or face products now. I'm a sold!
Excellent cream. Very smooth shave. As good as is out there. Just a great product.
I have now less skin irritation after 1 week of using your products.
This product was amazing!
It has a great texture on the skin & then left my husband skin soft supple & vibrant.
I would recommend this to any man!
Great moisturizer great ingredients light fragrance that's not overwhelming it last through the day into the evening to the next shave.
Great Product. I love the subtle fragrance and rich feel of this balm. Great finale to my morning shaves.
The moisturizing shave cream is amazing. It really does reduce the hyper pigmentation that I struggle with. I only use a little bit of it and it covers my whole head and face.
I don't even have to reapply as I shave because it doesn't dry out so this stuff basically lasts forever! And the face balm, forget about it! It really does speed up the healing process and lightens the shaved skin.
The shave cream and face balm are best friends. Thank you, Craig The Barber.
A well made product. Smooth shave for people with sensitive skin. I have hyper sensitive skin and just any product won't do. I've had great results with this product, with no irritation while shaving or after. Thanks.
This is Best Product for Black Men Love It . You Got a Life Customer !!!!!!!!!!!!!! DARRICK
Best shave ever. Love the product I am a life time customer
I have extremely sensitive skin and I didn't have a product that could provide post-shave protection and all-day comfort at the same time. Until now. This really is a phenomenal product.
It’s awesome! Love the texture, feels like you’re just getting out of a fresh hot towel shave.
Burke Avenue saved my skin!
Finally a product that gets me excited to shave! I've always struggled with irritation and razor burn following a shave. So much so I would go days without shaving.. After being introduced to Burke Avenue, I am no longer procrastinating shaving and have had absolutely no irritation or razor burn following my shave. This is a must have for men and women all over! Thanks for creating a solid product.
Great slick lather. Very light scent. I like that because it doesn't compete with any of my after shaves. I can wear whatever I feel like that day and I'm not forced to find something that "pairs" well with it like you do with a lot of heavily scented soaps and creams. I've used a lot of different brands and I can say that Burke Avenue left me with the best post shave feeling I've ever had.
Exceptional Product. The shaving cream that I used was flawless. I applied it to my head to shave, and it produced great results. It lasted between shaves, and has a great smell. I am very pleased of this product. Thank you Craig the barber.
It picks up where the shave cream ends. And it even lives up to being a really good moisturizer. I like it! Good job
I bought this for my husband and ended up having to order again, because I tried it for myself and LOVED it so much.
After trying every product on the market from drug store foam to Art of Shaving this is by far the best he's every used and one container goes a long way. The scent isn't strong and not masculine or feminine, just kind of natural and botanical. Sometimes I just put it on my skin in the shower and rinse it off, because it moisturizes so well. Sorry for the ramble. But this stuff is THE BEST.
Best shave ever! Following Craig the Barber's direction on Youtube, this was by far the best shave I have ever given myself using Burke Avenue Moisturizing shave cream.
I have been using Burke Avenue for 3 months now and this shaving cream delivers a smooth shave every time! No nicks or cuts just a smooth close clean shave. Best stuff on the market!! AWESOME product! Great job Craig The Barber!
Incredible. First and foremost, less is more with this stuff. The first time I used it, I put a thin layer of the cream on my face, but as I was shaving it started to foam and it was like a never-ending layer on my face. Since then, I've been using just a dab, and wetting my face and creating a nice lather. That's the great thing about this cream; it works both with a brush and brushless. The smell is fresh and subtle, so it's pleasant without being overwhelming. I can't recommend this highly enough.
Burke Avenue is, hands down, the BEST shave cream on the market. It has the correct amount of moisture, lathers up nicely and has a pleasant (to no) scent. Short of shaving soap, it is the best shaving prep on the market!
I've been using the Moisturizing Shaving Cream to shave my underarms and legs. It's the BEST! The hyperpigmentation on my underarms is lightening up quickly! The organic ingredients really make a difference. They leave he skin feeling smooth and prevents irritation. I recommend this Cream for Men and women.
Excellent performance and exceptional post shave. I've been very impressed and have already recommended this line to several friends.
For my husband. He absolutely loves this product
The Burke Avenue Difference
What folks are saying about our products
It's honestly the best shave I've ever had. It feels more comfortable when I shave, the razor glides more easily, and I don't have any irritation when I'm done. (I have with many other products I've tried -- even the "high end" ones). I like the mild scent a lot, my wife even commented on it. I use a Gillette Fusion razor and I noticed that I feel like I can use my blades longer, which is nice considering how expensive they are to replace. Highly recommend.
Although the shave cream market is getting crowded, Burke Avenue deserves a place on your shelf. Very moisturizing, lightly scented, and excellent cushion and glide. Produces a thick, luxurious lather almost effortlessly; a real treat, especially for the looming cold weather months!

I am writing this review from a professional barber's vantage point. This shave cream is fantastic! For starters, it has great texture and smells amazing. It provides great slip or glide for the shave and it truly does hydrate so well! What I love even more is that there are so many natural ingredients in it, and essential ones at that. This product was very intentionally thought out & developed and that is evident. I can trust and feel good about what I am putting onto my clients' skin, and this is very important to me. This is even great for my sensitive skin clients. They always remark that their skin feels great after the shave and they don't experience irritation in the hours or days that follow.
