The Art Of Shaving Lemon...

Item Description

Gents,
This is the first tube of AOS I have had the pleasure of trying - and I must say, I was quite surprised. The first thing I noticed was the lid/tub. It is the best built tub of any high end shaving cream I have used - as unlike the 3 T's, and others, it has a very positive opening/closing action, and a great feel/look.

When you twist off the lid of the jar, you are immediatly greeted with a "lemon merengue" like scent of delicious lemon. The cream seems to be "airy" similar to salters cream - it certainly is not as dense as Taylor, Trumper, or Truefitt & Hill.

As you can see - this huge brush is LOADED full of lather.

I was quite impressed with this shaving cream, and I felt it was every bit as good as salter, trumpers, and T&H, but felt taylors is a bit more lubricic. I would HIGHLY recommend the lemon scent, especially if you like Salter Citrius, as it is quite similar to salter citrius.

Latest reviews

Pros: scent, lather
Cons: price
Other than price, this is a remarkable cream. It lathers well, provides a great, slick shaving surface and has a refreshing citrus scent. For $25 I think I'd only buy it for special occasions like Christmas, but it works so well it's hard to stay away from it.

Pros: Smells great, lathers beautifully and very slick
This stuff smells so good I want to eat it! It blows TOBS Avocado away in every category. AoS Lemon is an absolute favourite of mine and will be in my rotation regularly. Looking forward to trying the other scents. Highly recommended!

For me, the scent is amazing. Lather is great. At first, I didn't feel it was as slick or protective as other stuff I've been using. Lately, I've been more into face lathering and feel it offers much better protection with this method-
