This luxurious Sandalwood fragranced hard shaving soap comes in a beautifully handcrafted wooden bowl for a smooth and close shave. This Shaving Cream creates a markedly velvety and creamy lather while protecting and moisturising the skin for a better shave. You might place the cream on either the shaving brush or on the palm of your hand and then apply it to your face, utilize the shaving brush to work up a lather.
In one word, Great! It has that kind of mystical old fashioned barbershop type smell, clean, manly and sophisticated. It will remind you of the old barber shop of days past or even your Dad. The fragrance isn't overpowering at all, and leaves you smelling good. The aroma is wonderful and will always be noticed by your lovely wife. This shaving cream ought to be used with a tiptop quality brush ( a badger brush) for maximal result. You won't go wrong with Taylor's Shaving Cream and you might even enjoy your morning shave just a little more!!
This product whips up an amazing lather. Use a brush but even just lathering up in the palm of your hand with your fingers and this cream works wonderfully, far better than the mass-market gels and creams you buy at the grocery store. A penny size drop in a lathering bowl, a couple of swirls with a shaving brush gives you a thick rich lather that helps the razor glide over your face. You have a excellent shave without irritation. Provides lots of protection and is just plain easy to whip into a nice lather.
It also leaves the skin soft and supple without any of the burn that those minty type oils tend to give. A shave takes just a small amount of the soap but it lubricates incredibly well. It feels marvelous and the texture of the cream is rich and voluptuous. It makes the task of shaving more pleasant. Your face will still feel soft and silky smooth even after 12 hours. The warm-buttery feeling on your face of this Sandalwood lather will be the clincher.
This product ends the quest for the best, yet paradoxically most economical, shaving lather you can find. The tub lasts forever...
You will barely be able to tell if you've used any at all, even after several weeks. It's creamy, makes loads of lather from just a dab on the brush, and lasts for a long time. The shaving outcomes are superior and a immense jump from those cheap creams you find at the supermarket.
You may still have about a quarter of this can left even after 10 months of use. A little goes a long, long way. You use only a tiny amount per shave, so the premium you pay up front is paid back by the fact that it lasts 4-6 months. It's hard to believe that this stuff is so cheap-even with daily use it will easily last 6 months.
If you are going "old school" with your shaving, this is the way to do it. Firstly, your wife will love the smell it leaves on you, and if you're not one for colognes, this has a healthy, masculine smell without being "perfumey". Inferior products are like shaving with wet watery soap whereas this cream creates a nice rich lather. Just so you know, when you open this up you're not looking at a bowl of hard soap, this is actually a tub of very creamy lotion. All you have to do is just dip the tip of your badger hair brush in the lotion and then lather it up in your other hand if you wish and then apply it to your face. A bit old fashioned routine maybe, but still great and a pleasing way to shave. There's just no comparison to the stuff that comes out of a can. It's warm, creamy, velvety, smells great, doesn't get all over your hands, and of course, works well as a lubricant for the razor.
It does live up to the Taylor tradition of a smooth shave.
If you are a first-time user for real shaving creams, "you'll use this once and never return to store or generic brands again"! You may experiment with others like Proraso, Art of Shaving, Truefitt and Hill, etc. but you won't go back to Gillette!
