Taylor of Old Bond Street - Jermyn Street Collection Shaving Cream for Sens

Item Description

This stuff makes me so happy :w00t::lol::w00t:

After burning through sample packs of several popular brands I've settled on the ToBS Jermyn St. cream for sensitive skin is my favorite and as my backup--not because it's outstanding in any particular category but because it's all-around a great product. It smells fantastic (a mild handsome scent, not overpowering but wonderful to take in), lathers well, shaves well, and leaves my face happy.

It strikes a great balance of providing a little extra care without giving up scents all-together--it's a rare product that targets those of us with skin that needs some extra love but can handle a little scent as well. And for the price (just a small amount more than regular ToBS) it's a fantastic standby.

(I'm rating the scent a 10 simply because it's my personal favorite, plus it scores #1 on the GAF chart (girlfriend-approval-factor)-YMMV, but I wish I could bathe in the stuff)

Pros: Easy to lather; nice scent
Cons: Dries quickly; small irritation
Bought this iin the tube edition during a trip to London, more than a year ago. Its purpose was to use it on my trips. tried it for the first time with a Vulfix silvertip brush at home. Disappointing !! Lahtered very easily but dried very quickly, even before I finished my first pass... At the same time, I was feeling a tingling sensation, I could not make where it was coming from. (lateron, I learned it may be due to lanolin which this cream includes. Not sure, just mentioning it.)

Anyway, I tried it a second time, while on a trip: the results were the same. So I put it aside and did not use it again until last week. As my Tabac soap was nearing its end (and the refill has not arrived yet), I decided to give it a thrid try but now with a stiffer, pure badger Omega brush.

Well, it feels totally different ! It lathers well again but does not give this annoying tingling feeling on the face. This may be due to the stiffer brush pushing the cream in the skin and/or doing a soft peeling of the skin, before the cream arrives. It sill dries too fast, however.

I would not recommend it; there are very nice creams around (Proraso Green) and, of course, the ultimate Tabac soap !!

Pros: Smells great, lathers well
Cons: None
SCENT: TOBS Rose has been my go-to cream for awhile, but it just got knocked off the top spot by Jermyn St. The scent isn't as strong as the other TOBS I've tried, but it sure is nice. I'm not sure how to describe it except to say that it reminds me of a store in Kansas City that sells new age gifts...lots of candles and incense. It is a really pleasant smell but not at all overwhelming.

PRICE: Reasonable. I've noticed that some places charge a little more for Jermyn St, but I found it online for the same price as the other scents.

QUALITY: Solid 10. I've yet to find something I don't like about TOBS creams.

LATHER: A little dab fills my brush with enough thick cream to last through my normal 2 passes and more if I need it.

This is a great shaving cream in a classic package that does everything it's supposed to do and does it with a lot of style. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Superb lather, easy to use, little product needed to provide plenty of lather.
Cons: None
This was my first bowl of shaving cream purchased after switching from a Fusion razor and Fusion Gel to a DE Razor. I use tubes mainly just because I like to try different products I use CO Bigelow mainly and sometimes switch to TOB Sandalwood cream in a tube.
I don't have sensitive skin, but got it after reading reviews on B&B and other forums.
I use a bowl to lather and this makes an easy luxurious lather, when I shave the razor just glides over my face.
I normally do two or three passes wtg,xtg & atg,
I soon found you do not need a lot of this to give you a great shave.
There is subtle scent not a strong perfumee smell at all, the cream is a little soft so don't load the brush with too much as I did first time. I had enough lather to shave for days!
I like the black tub it looks classy.
This is definitely a quality product and I will not hesitate to purchase anything made by TOBS in the future.
