Palmolive Rinfrescante al Menthol

Company: Palmolive
Product: Rinfrescante Shaving Cream

When you think of Palmolive the first thing that comes to my mind is dishwashing liquid. I remember the commercials of the woman soaking her hand in it at the beauty parlor that was back in the 70s. I never really knew about the shaving cream until I started to wet shave and someone sent me a tube of it to try. Just like the commercial I was shocked to find out just how good it was too.

Sometimes companies will make their products slightly differently in other countries. I was sent a tube of Palmolive from Italy called Rinfrescante al Menthol the scent is different and the addition of menthol was the icing on the cake for me the packaging was basically the same, however.

When it came to performance both have high marks. I do like the scent of the US cream much better but absolutely enjoy the addition of menthol on the Italian version.

Making a lather was no problem I placed a little in a wet brush and began to face lather which produced an amazing amount. I had so much on the brush I could have done 3 more passes if needed. the lather got right onto the beard and provided great coverage. The slickness and glide scored top marks and allowed my razor to go over the trouble spots without fear of irritation. My post-shave feel was a good one indeed.

I would definitely recommend this shaving cream to any level of a wet shaver. If menthol is not your thing start with the classic version. To purchase the one I used here you will need to go online with a google search it's just not available any other way.
