Ravor

Item Description

I was lucky enough to receive a package containing a number of shaving products from Brazil and Argentina yesterday. Based on my first uses of Nazca shaving cream, I am really excited to explore each product and to share my findings with the B&B community. It's my hope that others who have tried them will add their opinions as well.

On the way home from the post office, I pierced the top of the Nazca and fell in love with it. It was so slippery and had such a fantastic scent. I knew I had to try it first.

I shaved as soon as I got home. I thought I would see exactly how good it was, so I loaded a new Perma-Sharp into my R41 2011--a combination that would truly test the cream. It is so aggressive I have only used it with super-lathers that included Frasers to soften my beard, alomg with MWF or Tabac soaps for glide and cushioning.

Nazca did a superb job. Four passes without irritation and BBS. Wonderful, clean scent that happily lingered a bit. The lather was thinner than the superlather, but did the job even better. I was very, very impressed.

I asked six friends to put a dab of the cream on a fingertips and describe the scent. Comments included: very clean (everyone), very slippery, nice enough for a cologne, neither masculine nor feminine, floral overtones, hint of menthol or mint, and "like sticking your head into the cold-case display at the florist".

I know that Nazca contains Aloe Vera, but whether it alone is responsible for the lovely, clean scent I don't know. Nazca is reminiscent of Musgo Real in texture, but perhaps even slicker, and has an even cleaner and fresher smell.
