SCS Coconut

Item Description

While I don't have the time to provide a comprehensive review, I still
want to take a moment to share my experience and to applaud Sue. I
received the sample of her coconut oil cream last week, and I must this
cream is amazing! It really is. While my experience has not been positive
with fairway rose, coconut oil has provided a completely different
experience.

Sue said she sent me sample for about one or two shaves; however, being
that this cream lathers so well, I've found that I've already had four
shaves with it and still have enough for four more! :w00t: I've also found
that a little goes a long way with this particular cream. I use about a
nickel size amount and get plenty of lather. While the consistency of the
lather is not as thick as, say, TOBS, Trumpers, or T&H, it's nevertheless
well balanced by its superb ability to moisturize. After using this cream,
my face feels as though I just applied a light moisturizer or lotion.
What's best about this cream is its scent!!! :001_smile. Compared to
Trumper's coconut, SCS's is, in my opinion, much better. Whereas the scent
of Trumper's coconut resembles the smell of Hawaiian Tropic Sun Tan
Lotion, SCS's scent presents as a mild pina colada/coconut smell that's not
overwhelming. It really is a pleasant scent, and I can see myself using
this cream frequently during the spring and summer months. If you ask me,
it's a daily trip to the islands!

Overall, I'm very pleased with this cream, and highly recommend it. Two
thumbs up for SCS! :thumbup: You did it again!

The only thing that would make me happier is a coconut scented aftershave milk to go along with this cream (hint, hint, Sue!). :biggrin:

Pulled out my tub of SCS Coconut Oil cream from the back of the cabinet. It had been out of use for a few months so I gave the cream a quick stir. After a dip of a badger in the cream, I went to work face lathering. I tend to really work the cream before slowly adding water. My reward was a rich, slick lather that smelled heavenly. The lather this creams delivers is splendid. It leaves my face soft and moisturized. Really fine stuff. I think it will stay in the front of the line for a bit.

Price: This was a gift so price wasn't a factor.

Quality: As with all of Sue's products, the quality of the cream is apparent. The cream was uniform in texture. It was very smooth and glossy. Her creams have a fairly thick consistency.

Scent: Now here is the good stuff! This is a wonderful dreamy, creamy scent. It is not a one-dimensional synthetic coconut smell. I think it would appeal equally to both men and women.

While it smells delectable inside the jar, the scent really opens up once you start lathering with it. I could detect a dry coconut smell that reminded me of the homemade coconut ice cream at my favorite Thai restaurant. There was also a subtle fruit note of juicy pineapple. Finally, I could smell a creamy, coconut milk-pina colada smell that was just mouth-watering.

The sad part is that the scent washes away and only faintly lingers on your skin. This would be a plus for gents who don't want their shave cream to interfere with their colognes and aftershaves. For me, I want to bathe in this stuff because it smells so good! I would second zerohnine in a request for a matching aftershave milk just so I had the option of layering scents.

Latherability: As with most SCS creams, it takes a bit more patience and water to get to that sweet spot but it is well worth it. I had lots of lather left over for numerous passes.

Efficacy: The lather was slick and moist. The razor glided over my skin with ease. No complaints here. Nothing but a nice smooth shave.

Moisturizing: I was impressed by how moisturizing it is! Afterwards, my skin did not need any type of moisturizer or aftershave balm.

Packaging: It came in a very smart black jar with a silver lid. I think it would look very nice on any bathroom counter. The lid was slightly dented but I think that was due to the post office's negligence.

What are you waiting for? Go out and get some now! :thumbup:
