    Anyone tried Denim shaving cream?

    Have used Denim Black. Good slickness and faint menthol; and just so-so cheap cologne scent.

    Spanish Shaving Creams

    Hi, just to provide you with an update. My LEA Professional restock just arrived from Connaught Shaving. While the price and performance remain unchanged, the scent smells different from the one I bought a year ago. Instead of citrusy-cologne, the scent now feels more floral, soapy and lighter...

    Spanish Shaving Creams

    LEA Classic has nice sandalwood-y scent and menthol; the 250g Pro is a citrusy cologne scent without menthol. The Pro seems to provide slightly better glide and cushion over the Classic, based on a year of usage comparison. My copy of the Classic in metal tube hardened after only a few months...

    Spanish Shaving Creams

    Adding my vote to LEA. I have the LEA Professional and LEA Classic; I prefer the Pro slightly over the Classic. Great performance and value.

    Lea menthol cream in tube. Any comments?

    Hello Rick. Thank you for sharing. I have the Lea Classic and I like the scent and postshave feel too. But being a guy who does not fancy strong menthol, the Lea Classic's menthol strength is just about right for me and maybe not stronger than that. :)

    Lea menthol cream in tube. Any comments?

    Thank you for your suggestions. I am based in Singapore ... it seems to be more economical to buy from Connaught Shaving.

    Lea menthol cream in tube. Any comments?

    Thank you so much for sharing your usage experience! I have the LEA Classic and LEA Professional. I like both different scents and I would be happy with not much more menthol above the Classic's.

    Lea menthol cream in tube. Any comments?

    My LEA Professional 250mg ran out and Connaught is out-of-stock. I would like to know if LEA Mentholated shaving cream smells and shaves the same as the regular/big LEA apart from the addition of menthol? And is the level of menthol about the same as LEA Classic shaving cream? Thanks.

    Has anyone tried Yardley and Denim shaving cream?

    Smells similar, but not exactly the same.

    Has anyone tried Yardley and Denim shaving cream?

    Denim Black is a fine and value-for-money shaving cream. Its scent is quite typical of Denim aftershaves - this one a bit musky and slight citrusy. Very mildly mentholated. Gives a smooth and non-eventful shave.

    Merkur 34c vs Fatip

    I started with the EJ DE89 and have added on the Fatip Testina Gentile for daily shaves. No big problem transiting to the Fatip. I did consider the 34C but since I prefer a 3-piece, Fatip is the next natural choice. And it is made of brass!

    Fatip Testina Gentile or Classic for everyday

    I shave with the Testina Gentile daily and there is no problem at all going ATG. For me I tend to ride the cap more.

    New EJ 3ONE6

    According to EJ's FB, the first production run has been sold out due to "phenomenal demand".

    New EJ 3ONE6

    Thanks for the heads up! I will be watching it first and wait for more user reviews.

    New EJ 3ONE6

    Yes ... maybe :). For now, I am sitting back and waiting for more reviews on performance, issues (if any), etc.

    New EJ 3ONE6

    This can backfire ... I had wanted to get this after my EJ DE89. But after all the Insta teasing for two months with nothing, I recently bought a Fatip and am happy with it!
