My Favourite Cream, by far!
on 25 December 2010
After reading a few good comments about this cream, I asked for it as a Birthday Gift.
I've now had it for a few months and it remains my absolute go-to cream, no matter what mood I'm in. I keep trying to bring in something to replace it and every single time, I end up back on the Jermyn Street cream.
Packaging: The standard Taylor cream tubs, but the black finish adds a classy look to it. Feels expensive
Fragrance: A light, but refreshing Fougere. Genuinely pleasant and one of the best smelling creams i've owned.
Lather: This stuff whips up into a superb dense lather with almost no effort. I wet my brush in the shower, and shake out most of the water. I scoop a small dollop of cream on the tip of my finger and apply it to the brush, and then start applying to my face. I add water as the lather builds until i have an enormous amount of thick dense foam. Enough to easilly do a 3-4 pass shave with no loss of quality. Its very lubricating, moisturising and protective.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommend this to ANYONE, even those who do not have issues with sensitive skin. You can never be too kind to your skin and this cream will look after you. I have since gone on to buy the matching soap and shower gel. Each of them is a superb product, complimenting the other well.
Forget your Edwin Jagger, Truefitt & Hill and Crabtree & Evelyn creams, get yourself a tub of this stuff.
