Denim shaving cream - good, but not great stuff

I received this Italian-made cream as a gift from a friend of mine at another forum and I used it recently so here's my review of it: Ease of lathering: 10/10--Great that way. Rich lather very easily. Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfectly stable for multi-passes. General skincare: 7/10--Lightly-ment...

Re: Another classic gone for good

The Sanders soap is pretty good. I have one here in the house, but I prefer De Vergulde Hand.

Re: Palmolive Creams Question

It's hard to beat the Italian Palmolive Menthol if you want a nice minty-scented cream with a potent cooling effect. There's nothing wrong with the Euro Classic variant either. The Lemon Palmolive cream from India is quite nice also, although I have to confess that I found it a bit drying to my skin.

Re: Proraso

Maybe I don't know what I'm saying, but I find the new versions of Proraso Green and White to be fantastic. Better lather with more skincare. :)

Axe Chilled aftershave gel - cool, not that chilly

Finally, a product from Axe which I can actually say that I like. It has a very modern "R&B" or "hip-hop" scent which at the beginning I wasn't too crazy about, but it sort of grew on me a little. It soothes my sensitive skin very well after a shave and has a lot of moisturizing to it, and the cooli...

Re: ALPA Windsor

I heard of this cream but never tried it. The only two Czech creams I've used are Don, which is a decent, but not great menthol cream, and Olimon, which smells awesome and performs very well.

Re: Queen Charlotte Cream-1st Impression

The Vostok cream and soap smell pure menthol and peppermint oil. Just sniffing it can make you feel cool.

The only QCS cream I've tried is Vostok which lathers so well for me and can freeze my face to pieces. Great skincare also. :D

Medicam shaving cream - great lather and stability

This is a cream from Pakistan which I've had for a while, and I never had the chance to review, so here we go. Ease of lathering: 10/10--A small amount of cream explodes into great lather. Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect. However, it's downhill from here. General skincare: 6/10--Drying and even ...
