I liked this cream a lot. It has a great cologne type of scent that I can't quite describe. The lather was excellent but does take a little longer than the British tubs to lather up. It's totally worth it. I got great creamy cushioned lather and it made for an excellent shave.
The face feel afterwards was the most exceptional quality of this cream. It has excellent moisturizing and healing properties so I didn't feel like I needed any aftershave. This is a new favorite for me.
I got mine from a European vendor as part of a batch of a whole bunch of shaving products so I got a fantastic price. It costs significantly more in the US. It's probably worth it since it is a large tube about the size of Proraso.
To compare, I like this more than Speick, which is also excellent for skin. And I like this considerably more than Proraso.
The scent is very nice!!!! The quality of the shaves are not so nice! I usually use TOBS or Proraso and this cream does not leave my face feeling so good after and also does not provide the smooth, comfortable shave I get from TOBS. I know how to mix lather and I couldn't get this feeling so good. I am, however, in love with the scent! I'm a little perplexed by those who say it's very cushiony.
