Review - Palmolive Shaving Cream

Company: Colgate-Palmolive
Product: Palmolive Shaving Cream
Location: New York City, NY
Website - Palmolive

I’ve seen this happen before a new shaving soap or cream comes on the market with the price around $100.00. All the wet shaving YouTubers jump at being the first one on the block to make a video about it. What really excites me is finding something that coast $3.00 that acts and performs like it’s $100.00. Well I found one although it’s not from the US this is a UK product called Palmolive Shaving Cream. This was possible due to my friend from the UK Leslie Asare he subscribes to my youtube channel and thought I would enjoy a few soaps and creams from the UK. This happened once before with my friend Melvin Hollenberg he gave me the shaving soap called De Vergulde Hand from the Netherlands another amazing shaving soap that’s considered a staple and costs very little.

Palmolive shave cream comes in a squeezable tin like tube with a screw on top. If you have read some of my other articles you know that tubes like this are not my favorite but some people have pointed out some accessories you can purchase to make this more enjoyable for someone like me who hates the sight of bent and deformed tubes on the counter.

For me the scent of this cream is amazing they called it “Classic Care” some say a wintergreen with a hint of lemon and yes, I get that but it not a true wintergreen and I do smell the lemon on the end note. I think it’s more on the Irish spring side and the reason I say this is Palmolive makes that product as well. The list of ingredients: Aqua, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut Acid, Cocos Nucifera Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Parfum, Potassium Chloride, Sodium Silicate, Cocos Nucifera Extract, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Limonene, Cl 15985, Cl 42051, Cl 45350, Cl 47005.

I bowl lather and Palmolive didn’t let me down. I placed a small amount into the bowl wet my brush and rung out it's contents into it. In only 54 seconds I had created a lather that was able to penetrate and get right into my 5-day old bread. A rich thick creamy lather which the scent seemed to increase as well. What a surprise to find out how superior the sickness and glide is for this cream in a word outstanding. Another surprise was the menthol effect. whether it has it or not it feels like it does In fact, more than any other shave cream I’ve ever tried and because of this it moves to one that I’ll reach for many times. Lastly my post shave feel was fantastic.

 So, A great shave was had and if you can find it in the US give it a try but you'll probably pay more for it in the states. They also have a lemon shave cream which I would love to try. I've seen both in the US for around $7.00 - $8.00 if you're interested Try West Coast Shaving or Life and looks
