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 which would certainly help anyone who has sensitive skin. Yes, this is one cream I suggest if one's on a budget, and as I understand, it's very affordable.
