Calypso Shaving creme is Al's classic Bay Rum Scent. Al describes Calypso as Cool, Refreshing, Bracing. The scent begins as a mild grassy Bay Rum, but once lathered the the smell of Bay Leaves, Cloves, and Cinnamon fill the room.
Having used and loved Al's Shaving Cremes I tried the Knockout Shave Creme Samples. Complicated was my favorite. They use Al's creme base with different essential oils to create unique scents.
The Comlicated scent is a combination of rosewood, sweet orange, patchouli, ylang ylang, oak moss, lavender, and grapefruit essential oils.
Knockout is thirst creme, it lathers up thick, rich,and slick.

Filled with softening and soothing properties, the Lavanda Shaving Cream has a base of coconut oil, enriched with lanolin and oat extract...
Another inexpensive shaving cream from India. Comes in 2 varieties, 'sporty lime' and 'party spice'. The scents are very pleasant, the lime is that of fresh lime while the spice is a mild musk.
They both contain shea butter and produce great slick lather. Like many creams from India they are quite concentrated and a little goes a long way. The post shave feel with these parallel that with Proraso red and the Pre de Provence soap.
I picked these up in 2 different towns in Tamil Nadu...
From the tub
Gabel's Brushless Shave Creme is excellent for preparing the beard for a close shave. It will soften the beard, making shaving easier. Wet face with warm water. Apply creme over beard and shave as usual. This creme is also used as an excellent facial skin cleanser. Cleanses without the harshness of soap. Leaves skin feeling soft, clean and refreshed.

This is the 150 ml Proraso 'Green' Cream new formulation, which has not been 'officially' reviewed.
The new formula, manufactured by Ludovico Martelli s.r.l. in Firenze, no longer contains parabens (amongst other ingredients) and the prepackaging logo has gone 'retro' along with the addition of barber stripes.
At a price starting at about €2 (~$2.75) and an average range of about $6-10 in the US, this cream provides amazing protection, lathering and glide for the money. It is the 'Go...
This is my first experience with The Holy Black and their shave cream. I ordered the 4oz Sandalwood smoke. The amber jar it's packaged in is nice, it seals well but that's where my positive experience ends. I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed with this product almost all the way around. The label on the jar I received was not as pictured on their site. It was pieced together from 2 different labels stuck together, they didn't even match, and they aren't anywhere near water...
I like a citrus scent when I shave and after reading many, many reviews of various shave creams, I decided that grapefruit might be a good choice for me. From everything I had read, Taylor's products were top notch - so I figured that I couldn't go wrong ordering this as my first "non-Proraso" cream product.
I am so glad that I did. This cream is fantastic! Right away when you open it a faint citrusy grapefruit smell greets you. It doesn't smell artificial or too citrusy -...
