Clubman Shave Cream - any good

Post by DCLawyer » Tue Oct 14, 2008 11:54 am

I KNOW there are threads on whether this stuff is any good, but the search feature isn't very helpful, so please forgive asking what I'm sure has already been asked and answered many times.

(And if there's a better way to search than typing Clubman shave cream in the box, please let me know!)

That's the only thread I found: looks like it can be lathered with a brush, like KMF, which is also technically a brushless cream. That's all I could find (not using the search function but using a similar targeted search through Yahoo). Not much, unfortunately, about its efficacy as a shave product, and most of the members who posted about it aren't too active anymore. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this.

I have it, I've used it, and I get a fine shave from it, but I don't particularly care for it. It's too different

Okay Cream

It is an okay cream. I got good shaves with it. The Menthol effect is on par with Proraso. The scent is to me what let it down. It is a nice scent, but not what I'm looking for. I'm more in to lime and citrus, and this is more barber shop.

It is an okay cream. Shaving qualities are good and it does have menthol. I was disappointed by its scent. I was expecting the cream to be more along the lines of the Aftershave scent but it was not even close.

I'd agree: it's a fine (as in OK in the best sense) cream; but, it did strike me as similar to Proraso, and I've got several tubes of it, so I didn't bother to reload the Clubman past the sample I tried. I should note that my sense of smell is not terribly strong, so I can't really comment on the scent that much; I'm speaking more of the menthol feel and the shave quality.

It is cheaper than Proraso and was available (to me) at Sally's Beauty Supply, so it could be worth trying if you aren't already buried under Proraso like me.
