Before trying this gem, I had convinced myself that I don't care for cologne-scented creams. Getting a tub of this stuff in trade changed my viewpoint forever. This stuff smells so darn good and shaves so well, that I think it is near the pinnacle of all shave creams. Just awesome.
Taylors tubs are pretty darn cheap compared to a lot of other stuff out there.
Well, Taylor's has come consistency issues with their texture, but this cream hasn't shown any issues for...
This is a cream which I received as a birthday gift a couple of weeks ago. I remember using the deodorant and bath soap, and also the aftershave quite a few years ago, but I was very pleasantly surprised to know there was also a shaving cream bearing this name and scent. It comes in a dark green tube, and has a lovely fresh scent, and a small amount on a brush quickly blows up into a rich fragrant lather. Definitely a brand I'd try to obtain again.
This cream is one of the most popular things out there. Perhaps it is the allure of the Violet scent, which is pretty unique. For me, however, I don't get good shaves at all from this cream.
Price: Yeah, it is expensive, as all Trumpers products are.
Quality: High quality stuff; consistent texture, lots of effort in presentation, etc.
Scent: Personally I don't care for it. Too sickly sweet.
Latherability: Whips up gobs or rich lather in a hurry. Here it is from today's...
This is a cream that doesn't get much press among its three-T brethren. It is a good shaver; not the best, but nowhere near the worst. If you like a solid cream with not too heavy a scent, this one is for you.
Price: Not cheap, but not as expensive as some other creams out there.
Quality: T&H doesnt seem to have the quality control isues that Taylor has, though this tub is of quite a different consistency than my other T&H tubs (much firmer)
Scent: This is a straight forward rose...
Last week, to see if I had any good options before breaking down and mail-ordering one of the vegetal-scented English supercreams, I went to Tysons Corner and checked department stores and other retailers of grooming supplies.
Years ago, during a long stretch of brushless wetshaving, I had used a tub of The Body Shop's shaving cream. I've purchased and enjoyed several of their products, including this one, so a purchased a new 6.6-ounce tub for $12.50. After contemplating the...
Omega has become a well-known brand among wetshavers for their brushes--marketing a shave cream allows Omega a safe way to diversify their revenues.
Does anyone know if Proraso produces this soap for Omega? I've found it very similar, and I mean that as praise. With a brush and mug or without, just a toothbrush-sized dab of this soap has given me plenty of thick lather.
After making this part of my daily rig for a few weeks, I started becoming tired of the eucalyptus scent: At $6.95...
Price - In relation to price, T&H is the middle child of the 3 T's. It is not so expensive that it hurts, but it is priced highly enough that you may want to try a sample before purchasing a whole tub. Luckily, samples are not difficult to come by (I've found Nordstrom's to be very generous).
Scent - The scent was the primary selling point for me. While standing in the store, I cracked open a tub and after a few whiffs, I couldn't make myself put this stuff down. The smell is...
Guys, I must have tried close to 100 different brands of creams and soaps in the last couple of years. This a shaving cream from Pakistan which is sold here in many East Indian stores, it's very reasonably priced, it comes in a plain paper box. The cream's a light green color like Palmolive, and it has a nice rich lather, and pleasant, clean scent. It's a decent brand, which definitely gives a smooth, close shave, although it can use a little more pasteurizations, otherwise, I'd recommend...
Here's a perfect example of no-frills quality. I received this cream this past week as a gift, and although the packaging's nothing special, and the scent is rather plain, the latherability, moisturization, and comfort more than make up for it. This cream will give even the most ultra sensitive skin a soothing, gentle and comfortable shave, and provide excellent lubrication as well.
This is a cream which I can honestly say, I heard a lot about, but when I bought it, as soon as I got it home, I was disappointed. The packaging's nothing but a paper box, the tube's a little nicer. The lather is acceptable, I guess, but I detest the scent. :frown: :frown: On top of that, it gave me a rash all over my neck, and left it feeling dry. I don't think I'd want to buy this stuff again.
What a nice cream this is, my Lord! I received it from my friend in Europe, and does this man ever know his creams! I remember seeing this stuff here in Montreal years ago, although I'd never really thought too much about it. I took a great shave with it this morning, and my face still feels smooth and soft. OK, the packaging's just a plain box, red in color, but what's inside the tube is what counts! Just a little on a brush, and wham! it lathers like crazy, it smells terrific, and the...
Within this present year, I've made friends with a few gentlemen in this group, one young man in particular who lives in Europe has sent me a lot of nice gifts. This cream until yesterday was unknown to me completely. The packaging is nothing fancy, just a plain box, the tube is a nice silvery-gray color, and the cream whips up into a nice, rich, efficient lather. There's definitely a cooling, fresh feeling while you shave, the scent is pleasant, and it has very good moisturizing qualities...
I must say that this is one of the most wonderful shaving creams I ever used. It smells so nice, it lathers up perfectly with any brush, and is so soothing to the skin. Although I'm very lucky to have my sister-in-law working at one of the C & E boutiques here in Montreal, I have to rate the price as kind of steep, but this cream is pure elegance and luxury, and assures the user wonderful shaves.
Cremo is fantastic because it works. It keeps your skin smooth and slick throughout the shave.
When I first put the dab on the brush tips and tried to lather it up, I was supprised at the lack of lather. That's why I gave the "latherability" a 7. Oh, it lathers more after the second pass, and it feels great. But the efficacy of the cream is not the lather, like most shaving creams. Somehow, and I don't know why, this stuff works because the more water you add (with your brush or by...
This is a brand that I regularly buy every time I go to Israel. It's definitely one of the most popular brands used over there. The cream which is green in color, comes in a big tube, price-wise, you can't really go wrong, the packaging is no-hell, just a plain box, but who cares! :lol: The scent is very pleasant, somewhat akin to Mennen Skin Bracer Original. The lather is rich, creamy and pleasant, and has good moisturization. I give it the double thumbs up grade.
Hard to believe that this hasn't been reviewed yet.... Go figure.
Look, here's the deal. This stuff is damn cheap. You can find it at Target now. It smells like something your Mom used to rub on your chest when you were sick. But this stuff can shave as good as lots of products 2 or 3X the cost. It lathers up beautifully, and provides a nice slick cushion for the razor. Also has a very intense cooling sensation which is amplified when you rinse with cold water.
It ain't luxurious, but it...
It was one of my employees who introduced this cream to me a few years ago when he gave me his tube because he switched to another kind. My first impression was it has a nice scent, lathers rich and creamy, and helps give a great shave. I'd like to point out this is another excellent choice for those who want quality without spending a lot of money. As I understand, this cream may not be available everywhere in the States.
It's really a pity that this stuff's non-existent where I live, because it's really a good shaving cream. OK, it's not a luxurious, elegant cream like Taylors, DR Harris, etc, but for such cheap money, it's still quite fine in my books. Anyone who's looking for a good no-frills, basic shaving cream without blowing his budget apart, this brand is ideal.
Gentlemen, I have always enjoyed trying different kinds of stuff from all over the world, a dear friend of mine sent me some great gifts recently, including this excellent shaving cream. OK, the packaging is a simple plastic jar, but who cares! The cream itself, is brown in color, has a heady, spicy, exotic oakmoss scent which goes very well for my body chemistry and swarthy skin, provides a great lather with just a little cream and some hot water, and a smooth, soothing, moisturizing shave...
In my zeal for acquiring shaving creams, I stocked up on a variety of Taylor's products. As this is Taylor's week on the board, I thought it appropriate to update reviews while they're fresh in my mind and on my face.
Price - Like all Taylor's products, these 5.3 oz tubs are a bargain. I got this particular tub at Cotton Blossom Crafts for $13.50 which seems to be about the going rate. I will say, whereas Taylor's Creams from other vendors arrived sealed in plastic, this one from Cotton...
