    Look forward to your feedback. We don't have the tube version in the UK

    I bought a tube earlier this year. It does indeed work well with a brush. Not the slickest or the most cushion in the world and the scent is kind of ho hum and uninteresting but it is serviceable cream at a very reasonable price. I'll be interested to hear your thoughts.

    I might as well review the cream now:

    Ease of lathering: 10/10–Great lather fast and easily. Just a small amount is needed.

    Longevity of lather: 10/10–Perfect stability. No thinning or dissipation.

    General skincare: 8/10–Pretty good. Soothing, moisturizing, and a light cooling effect.

    Scent: 5/10–To be honest I find it weird and not in a nice way.

    Price: N/A—I don’t have a clue. My father-in-law bought it for me.

    Would I buy again: 0/10–Absolutely never again. I might not even continue using this tube or just use it on rare occasions.

    There you have it - I ain’t impressed!

    It's $6.50 in the US.

    It would be good for someone with sensitivities to scent and other stuff you find in most shaving creams. It's marketed as being for people with sensitive skin. I have used my tube exactly twice earlier in the year and have yet to reach for it. But if I had a tendency to break out from many creams and soaps, I'd probably be using it. Fortunately I don't.
