I am unused to creams, so it took me a while to get a proper lather. For a shave cream called Icy Mint, it was neither. I had expected there to be menthol in it. It does have tea tree oil, but such a small amount, I couldn't tell. I would have had a mintier and icier experience by blooming an unscented soap with mint tea.
I really can't complain. I only ordered it to get past the free shipping limit. It does have acceptable slickness and cushioning. It might be better once I figure out how to lather it properly. I'm thinking of using it and the Wilkinson Sword together. The WS has a nice scent and the cream has the slickness that the WS lacks.
The Weishi is my first TTO that I acquired years ago. It is a nice mild razor that paired well with the Shark. Or rather, it calmed down the blade's aggressiveness. I really don't like the Shark blade. The only time it has not bitten me, was when I used GFT cream.
Not my worst shave, but a different blade would make it more enjoyable. One day, I may find a combination that is ideal for me, but for now I am enjoying the journey.
I like them.
