Crabtree and Evelyn

Item Description

I dont know too many wet shavers who are looking for a cream that doesnt lather... but if by some strange reason you are, then this one is for you. With that being said, it lubricates very well and does offer a decent shave. It is advertised as a low lather cream, so it does what its supposed to do. Its odorless, but doesnt reak at the same time. $18.00 C&E.

It is advertised as a low lather cream on the website... Which is practically giving the stuff away at 75% off online only. Who knows when the sale ends.

I picked up the N4M line when C&E had them online at 75% off ... I gave it a 5 for price because it is a bargain at $4.50 a tube, fairly priced when it is $9, but I wouldn't recommend it at full boat retail of $18.

The lack of lather doesn't bother me at all ... it might not look pretty, but it works, and does a great job of softening my whiskers.

For rating the scent, I had to give it a 10. I prefer unscented products, and this one is, even though it doesn't specify itself as such.

Packaging earns it a 9 ... a lot of which is due to the fact that it (like all C&E creams) are still put into a metal tube, and they include a key with each one. There is no real design to the the package, and it doesn't need one.

Over all, I like the entire N4M line, although it will never become a regular part of my rotation. It gives a great shave, although it lacks that intrinsic "fun" factor like a product line such as Tabac or Musgo or L'Occ Cade.

I also didn't realize this was a brushless no-lather monster. It moisturized well and seemed of good quality but I don't really do brushless.

So this was my first purchase of a shaving cream to match the new C&E Best Badger brush. It wouldn't lather. Back to the B&B instructional posts, re-watch Mantic's videos and try again. It wouldn't lather. Bummer.

So as a rub-on low lather cream it's ok, but not what I thought I was buying, and not what I expected.
