Godrej Lime Shave Cream

Item Description

I'm not feeling real creative, so I will just cover the cream point by point. Sorry! :biggrin:

Price; I bought this from The Shave Den. At $8 for 70mL, it's considerably more expensive than Speick. People sometimes slam Speick cream for it's high price per unit volume, but not this stuff. I guess it just doesn't have the exposure Speick does. I think it's much too expensive. I tried pricing it other places like Desistores, but it's still steep for what you get. Especially when you consider it's well under $1 in India. Add shipping to the $8 and you are getting to be VERY pricy for what is supposed to be a cheap cream.

Quality; No complaints here. My shave is awesome. Good lather, great glide. Altogether a wonderful cream.

Scent; Weird. If you are in the right frame of mind or under the influence of mind altering chemicals you might get a whiff of lime. The scent is not BAD, but it's not very much like lime.

Latherability; Awesome.

Efficacy; Also awesome.

Moisturizing; Umm, awesome. This stuff has lanolin in it, so beware. Lanolin creams are fantastic for shaving, but if you are allergic to it you will not be a happy camper.

Packaging; Foil tube in a cardboard box. What can you say about packaging up a tube???

All in all I would have been much more satisfied if it was half the price. When there are creams like Wars available for a fraction of the price which work just as well, this stuff just is not worth the dosh. I'm going to enjoy the tube I have, but when it's gone there will be no replacement unless I can find a very cheap source.

Pros: Very Few
Cons: Poor slickness
for me the red tube's cream yields a poor lather with little slickness. After three passes, I can still feel stubble on my face and neck. I am using a fresh blade that has been corked and stoped. None of my previous tube crreams--including the Godrej product in the dark red tube--have ever yielded so poor a lather.

I am from India, so I get it for less than a dollar here, I use it almost regularly, the fragrance part is a bit dull, but the lather and glide is simply great. It remains stable for 3 passes. In India it is cheaper than anything.

Pros: Great lather, nice lime-lemon smell
Cons: harder to find
My country has large Indian community because of that, India most export everywhere in the world.First the green package, just a cardboard box and a lamintated plastic tube. still includes lanolin for greater blade glide.

It lathers easily and holds stable for 3 pass shave, it smells like flime juice squeezed in.

not bad for a little cost
