I agree, this is a nice inexpensive cream. I've been using it daily for a couple of weeks. I like it. No complaints other than I'm not feeling the menthol. I also picked up Barbon, Figaro and Lea at the same time.

Of course it has a better scent and skin conditioning properties but for lathering, be thinking Williams....
