Weleda Shave Cream

Item Description

Okay, people have talked about this cream, I just thought I'd throw out an official review.

Two things drew me to this product in the first place. One, I could pick it up locally and inexpensively. Secondly, it's a natural product that that does not contain EDTA and other chemicals/preservatives that I really don’t want to absorb through my face.

Having said that, obvious drawbacks that those who have used it seem to be about latherability. It's true, you need to use more. Not a lot more, but more. As a bonus, if you screw up the water ratio, just add more cream or more water and it fixes itself. And, for the price, less than $9 Canadian, who cares if you have to use more.

Another negative, for me anyway, was that it really didn't moisturize all that well. I use Witch Hazel and a couple of nice balms after I shave, so it's not critical, but it's nice when the cream does some of that work as you shave.

My only other complaint is that it's simply not as slick as other inexpensive creams, like Proraso or Musgo Real. It's slick enough, just not the slickest, so you have to watch for the occasional skipping.

Other than that, the scent is a non-descript soapy scent, nice and clean, just not special. Packaging I gave an 8 because it comes in a good quality tube and I really prefer tubes to tubs, just a personal preference. Still, it would be a tacky gift when I look at the C & E tubes and other high-end crèmes.

Still, if you get your shave cream confiscated on a flight, and all you can get in your hotel is Weleda, don't hesitate, it will get the job done without question. In fact, it's a nice, cheap, and natural option for you shavers looking for something different.

I had to try this shaving soap.
It comes from the city I was born.

So this morning I wake-up and I did a comparison applying the four pass shaving method.
I started - first pass- with this and then I tried the Proraso while for the third and the fourth one I used the Weleda one.

So I'd choose
  1. Weleda
  2. Valobra
  3. Proraso

Weleda is the best for the scent, without any doubt. May be is worse for the lather - I'd report after more in deep trials - even if I saw it depends how you can work it.
Valobra, in terms of lather richness is the best. Its scent, however, remind me the white glue I used at the elementary school ( perhaps my first brush! :biggrin1: ).
However, between this kind of products, Proraso cannot stand out. Even if it is abosultely a reliable product

This is a fine shaving cream. Nothing spectacular, but decent stuff. I especially love its scent. Its lather making abilities are good, though it takes a little bit more cream to create a rich lather.
