Grapefruit Shaving Cream

Item Description

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 - if there is such a thing. It smells sweet, and natural - nothing medicinal.

The cream itself is velvety smooth. I loaded up my brush in just a second or two right from the Taylor bowl. A little bit went a VERY long way? I face lathered with it. It coated nice and evenly with just the right amount of foam. Nothing all soapy and bubbly - a silky smooth and soft coating on my skin and just the right amount of lather to give it all some body. And that grapefruit smell - just got better and better as I brushed it on. It stayed subtle and natural - never overpowering.

The shave itself was amazing. It was like running my razor over a silk sheet. I actually had to listen very carefully for the sound of whisker cutting because my razor glided over my face so smoothly and quietly I wondered if there was even a blade in it. I can't imagine a smoother, silkier shaving cream.

When I was done, I rinsed up and could still smell that grapefruit. I can't imagine ever getting tired of this scent. Subtle. Natural. Sweet and citrusy with just a hint of that grapefruit bite you get when you eat the real thing.

I couldn't love or recommend this variety of cream enough. If you like citrus with your shave, you're going to love this!

Pros: Scent is fantastic...like you have a fresh grapefruit sitting under your nose. Lather is easy to make and is very creamy. Provides good protection.
Cons: I find all TOBS creams to be a bit water hungry. By that I mean that, halfway through the shave, it's best to hit it with a shot of water and stir it into the lather in your bowl. Easy to do thankfully.
This is my personal favorite TOBS cream because the scent is so strong and so...grapefruit! You definitely can't fault them for the scent...it's advertised as grapefruit and it is. Overall, I feel like I'm spoiled and pampered when I use this cream. Very good product.

I received this in either a trade or PIF, I can't remember which, but I really paid nothing for it. Great product and even better scent. Probably my favorite summertime cream.

Pros: Lovely scent, easy lather, good price
Cons: I wish the scent could last longer
This was a Christmas present and, along with TOBS Sandalwood and Coconut, has been an enjoyable aspect of my tripartite holiday rotation.

Basically, this cream is about the scent. It really smells like a freshly cut grapefruit. It's a wonderful, fresh, natural scent. My only regret is that the scent doesn't seem to linger as long after the end of the shave.

Lather quality is pretty much identical to sandalwood which many people will be familiar with. If you want a great product that smells of natural, fresh citrus, I would recommend giving this a go.
