Arko Cool shaving cream

Item Description

About 2 months ago, I received this great cream along with a whole bunch of other Arko products as a gift from a very good friend of mine. I was a little confused the first time I shaved with it, because as the name would imply, you'd expect it to be mentholated. This cream contains no menthol whatsoever, but it does smell wonderful, it has a scent that would remind you of the tropics, the lather it gives is enough for 2 men to shave with, and the shave you get is great. When you finish shaving and rinsing your face, you feel refreshed and energized, and the scent lingers! :wink: :thumbup1: I think this is a cream to be used in summer or in warm weather places, because of the unique, beautiful scent, and refreshing effect it has.

Pros: Great lather, nice scent, and CHEAP
This is a very nice cream but as the original reviewer stated, it can cause some confusion if you're a menthol lover because there's none at all in this variant. In fact, I don't even feel any cooling sensation from this cream at all. The scent is to my shnazola, very sporty and young, and the lather is super-rich and easy to create. The moisturizing is not that great, but I always use a moisturizer so I can overlook that flaw. I bought it at a Turkish variety store here where I live. Really cheaply-priced.

Pros: Price and results
Cons: None
A very nice cream, lathers up very well and is slick, cushioning and protective. I use a bit more than normal, but at the price I paid, who cares.

Someone mentioned that there is no menthol and the "Cool" refers to the scent. This morning I added some Godrej Menthol Mist to the mix just to see how it would go.

The two scents compliment each other and the Godrej adds a bit more to the quality of the shave. Maybe it's the Lanolin in the Godrej. Most importantly, I got a truly icy menthol blast thanks to Mr. Godrej.

The Arko cream is definitely a good buy on it own, but do consider ramping it up in the warmer weather, if you like it Cool.

Quite cheap. Lathers well, but the lather has a very little cushioning, which results in not so comfortable shave. Not a bad cream, but there are much better ones for not so much more.
