This is a review about Gillette Regular cream from Lebanon.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Awesome lather, which explodes in seconds.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Stable as you can want.

General skincare: 5/10--No good. At least to me - very drying and irritating.

Scent: 1/10--Terrible. Too artificial, with a fake men's cologne note. Yuck.

Price: 8/10--I paid 5,00$ CDA for a 100 gram tube. Not too expensive at all.

Would I buy again: 0/10--Forget it. This stuff is never coming into my place again.

With respect to any Gillette cream lovers, I could never get any success from any of these Lebanese Gillette creams. Yes, they all lather superbly, and they get the job done properly, but there's more to a shave than just lather. There should be comfort - this cream provides absolutely NONE for me.

Jeff, I have one that I believe comes out of Europe that is outstanding. I have not tried one from Lebanon, that I know of.

Freddy, my Gillette Menthol cream is from France, supposedly. It works wonderfully. A great cooling effect, a nice and clean, classy scent, and it moisturizes my skin well. (I still prefer Palmolive creams, but this stuff is very enjoyable!)

Bro, I am in complete confusion. I suffered from irritation and dryness from all the Lebanese Gillette creams. They are for sure wonderful latherers, but the skincare..............Sad It seems not there.

I've seen the creams from France and Switzerland, but where did you find those from Lebanon?

There's a Lebanese-owned grocery store that was selling them for a while. These creams were a waste of money and time.

Finally! If Jeff says it's no good, I believe it. After all, who else has a stock of 214 creams in rotation Biggrin
