    Great cream just a straight no frills lavender scent. Nothing fancy but performance is top notch, better than most other creams. It has a nice clean ingredient list and is scented with essential oils, so all good stuff here… unlike the UK creams which are full of preservatives and chemicals. It’s probably worth the price if you care about your health even a little bit.

    Without a doubt the slickest shaving cream I’ve tried. Beautiful lavender scent that is just absolutely pure lavender. Can appeal to a wide range of folks, calming and simple but elegant. Again, the performance of this product is superior and well worth the money because it doesn’t take much at all to make a very slick shaving lather.

    I’ll keep this one simple. This is the best shaving cream I have tried. The lavender is the highest quality scent, no-one else has come as close to the true lavender scent as this, and it’s down to using the finest essential oil. It’s like standing in the middle of a field of it in the south of France, it’s just perfection. Post shave is phenomenol, although it doesn’t fall short in any area. I don’t use any other creams now.

    Sorry to be a lone dissenter on this one but I don’t get all the fuss about this product. I bought samples of the CF Lavender and Cedarwood and Sandalwood and, after 6 shaves, find them to be only middle-of-the-pack performers. The best features are (1) world-class room-filling fragrance, and (2) a tiny amount of product goes a very long way. My experience is that CF creams don’t measure up to the big names (TOBS, T&H, DR Harris, Proraso) in slickness or in cushioning. The best performer from a boutique maker I have found is from the New York Shaving Company. (Perhaps Maggards will look into stocking this one.)

    Probably the best shaving cream on the market due to it`s healing properties and excellent slickness. Have never tried anything that is close to this beauty. Do not hesitate to try ( Maggard R) got samples.

    Of the 30+ creams and soaps I own, this is far and away, to me, the best shaving cream ever made. The scent is pure heaven. Cushion, glide and slickness are second to none. I will never be without this cream.

    Everything good you have read about Castle & Forbes Lavender is true. Protection, body, glide, aroma, its all there. A+.
