This cream comes in a robust plastic tub in a nicely presented box. Although it is labelled as a cream it is solid like a soap and is used like a soap. You need a decent brush to get the best lather out of it but it is extremely slick when you work the brush on top of the soap. I really like this "cream" and it is a slick as any of the best soaps out there. I get a really close shave with lots of glide for my razor, reducing any chance of burn. The tub is a large 200 gram size and retails for £20 or approx $40. This is expensive but fortunately I can pick this up for £7.99 from TKmaxx fairly regularly which makes it an absolute bargain. The fern scent is very pleasant and can only be likened to the smell of woodland after a rain shower, and is very true to its name. The cream also has a slight cooling effect which is also very pleasant. I think this cream is underrated and under used, probably due to its price and availability but I can highly recommend it, especially if you can get it for the cheaper price.
