Old Spice Original

Item Description

Oh sweet nostalgia! Though I may be young I do remember the scent of real Shulton formula Old Spice. When I found this cream I knew that I just had to try it

Ingredients (only the key ingredients are listed on the package):
Glycerine, boric acid

Price
£ 3.90 for a 70g tube is not bad when considering it is imported all the way from India

Quality
Like most Indian creams this is a high quality product

Scent
Yes gentlemen, this is the Shulton formula scent - or alt least close enough for me not to notice any diffrence. If you are an Old Spice fan this cream will rock your boat! The scent does btw. work fine with the new formula P&G Old Spice Original after shave aswell

Latherability
Lathers like it can be expected by a glycerin based cream; not a lot of cushion (but still enough) and a great deal of slickness

Efficacy
Squeze out 2 cm and you have enough lather for a four pass shave

Moisturizing Properties
Ok, not fantastic. But it doesn't dry up my skin like many other soaps and creams

Packaging
A bit cheap and tacky, but it works

If you are an Old Spice fan you need this cream :001_smile


Regards.

Pros: Price and scent
Cons: None
I found a tube of Old Spice (Lime) at a local Indian Grocery. My first shave was an incredible experience! I also finished my shave with Old Spice after shave. I liked it so much, I went back and bought a 2nd tube.

I store my soaps and creams with individual aluminum screw-on cap containers. I squeezed both tubes into one container.

My tube came in a basic cardboard box--much like toothpaste--so no big issue for me.

I will definitely take this with me on our cruise in July.

Pros: Scent - but it was not what I expected
Cons: lack of cushion and slickness
Good product yet missing the original Old Spice scent. I recommend to use it for super/uber lathers as it does not provide with the protection and gliding characteristics needed for a good shave.

Pros: Nice thin lather and the fragrance
Cons: not ready to admit one even if there is one, because it is old spice
The nostalgia, oh the nostalgia. I don't know about you, but for us boys from India this is like a symbol of chrysalis from a boy to a man. Along with the old spice after shave this was like a symbol of gentlemanship among our earlier generation. Simply put the nostalgic and cultural values of this brand itself is quite overwhelming for me.

The lather is thinner compared to a godrej or a Vi john, but it is still great, the moisturising is ample in my opinion and the glide is never compromised because of the thin lather. The fragrance is FREAKIN AWESOME!!
