Hard to believe that this hasn't been reviewed yet.... Go figure.
Look, here's the deal. This stuff is damn cheap. You can find it at Target now. It smells like something your Mom used to rub on your chest when you were sick. But this stuff can shave as good as lots of products 2 or 3X the cost. It lathers up beautifully, and provides a nice slick cushion for the razor. Also has a very intense cooling sensation which is amplified when you rinse with cold water.
It ain't luxurious, but it gives a fine shave. 'nuff said

"What's to say that hasn't already been said. This "
Pros - Lathers great, smells good, highly cooling,very lubricating
Cons - not sold locally
What's to say that hasn't already been said. This cream has been around forever and that is a good indication of how well this cream works. The cream is a thick cream that only requires a small dollop to become a huge lather that lasts forever with very little effort. The smell on the new formula is less intense than the original which for some is a positive. It reminds me of a mint tea or noxema type of smell with a little something extra. The biggie for me is the cooling of this product wow !!! the first time I used it i was suprised as it took a second to kick in but when it did all I can say is wow this stuff really cools. Word of warning if you splash cold water after using this be prepared in a good wake you up kinda way. Lubrication is another big plus this stuff is slick and doesn't quit it is perfect for multip passes with no drag. Packaging..... really if it's in a box and protected it's good enough for me the product is in the tube not the box. Overall I love the stuff and is highly recommended.
"I would like to say firstly that I'm very upset th"
Pros - Price, scent, cooling menthol, all around performer
Cons - Irritation, parabens
I would like to say firstly that I'm very upset this irritates my skin! I absolutely love the scent and I DO think this is a wonderful cream for daily use, it lasts a long time as well as being very coat effective. I can't shave with it more often than once or twice a week, I do know that proraso is coming out with new formulas, so I think I'm going to try one of those. I don't know what I reacted to but I think it may be the parabens since. This is the only shaving cream I own with them. The pre-post shave does the same thing and I bought the tea tree and eucalyptus one( but that's another review). Overall it's a wonderful classic cream/scent. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
"This product gets a solid 8 because of the smell. "
Pros - Great lather, very thick and slick.
Cons - The smell!! Oh lord!!
This product gets a solid 8 because of the smell. It'd be a 10 otherwise. Lathers up in seconds, gives a great slick barrier between your face and the blade, stays moist the entire time, and generally delivers an AMAZING shave. If, of course, you can get passed the smell.
