If you’re an old-fashioned gent, you like a quality shoe shine, crisp pocket squares, and a traditional straight-razor shave. But when a jam-packed schedule doesn’t allow for cutthroat whisker removal, we suggest this concentrated, creamy soap, which brings to mind classic barber shops (especially the Italian variety) with its tingly sensation and old-school packaging.
I really enjoyed the texture and the feel of this shaving cream. It was creamy and soapy and I was expecting a really nice shave, and, in fact, after sliding the razor all over my face, I was smooth and shorn. The problem with this shaving cream is that it has a truly awful smell, something like black licorice mixed with olives. I had to scour it from my face after I was done.
Pros: Good shave.
Con: Smells like a ham roasting in the July sun.
Unfortunately, this product did not work for me as planned. The cream itself was very smooth and think but didn't produce a lather as well as I would have liked. Midway through my shaving routine, I noticed that it was very difficult to remove the cream from the razor have a shaving swipe. I ended up using two razors in order to completely shave my face. Secondly, the cream left a residual layer on my skin for some time that I found most uncomfortable.
Sadly, not the product for me. Smelled great though!
I don't shave much but I had to the other day for a event. After using this cream my face was left dry and started to get ashy. I also broke out a couple days later, maybe my skin could just not handle it?1
I wasn't too impressed with this shaving cream. The first issue I noticed is it's lack of lather. I failed to find the classic barber shop effect of it, because it never really lathered up, it kinda just sat on my face like soap would. It also burned my skin, not so much of a tingle but more of a burn. I wouldn't recommend for anyone with sensitive skin.1
This is a terrible product. Not only did it burn my skin when I used it it also ruin my very nice razor blade. It was so thick I had trouble getting it on my face and even more trouble getting it off. When I was shaving because it was so thick it got stuck in between my razor blades therefore ruining my blade. I will never buy this product, and if you like your current nice razor I suggest you do not purchase it either.1
It shaves nice and has a nice tingle afterwards but I can't get past the smell of it when I put it on my face :(1
This may just not have been for me. I was super excited to try it, as I've pretty much stuck to Gillette and other mass-produced products for shaving cream. I loved the old style design. Based on my history, though, maybe that's why this product felt so off to me. It cut nicely but left a lot of residue on my face. Maybe I'll try again and leave another review. Maybe I won't...1
The directions state: apply to wet hands and lather up in a creamy foam, however it is impossible to get this product into a creamy foam - no matter how much lathering there is. I have heard rumors of people shaving with peanut butter, while I've never tried it, I imagine it is similar to using this product without the delicious aroma and taste.1
I didn't have a chance to try this product although the tube looks very vintage and nice. I don't shave using a traditional razor and this isn't for electrical face addicts like myself.1
I have very razor-burn prone skin and have a very difficult time with shaving cream. This was no different than the many others I have tried without success. I have very wiry hair and get razor burn very badly on my neck if I am not careful. This doesn't come close to my normal shave gel.1
