Hungary makes a few excellent creams, and this is one of them:

Ease of lathering: 10/10--A dab of cream on both cheeks explodes to rich lather!

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Stable as you want. Do 10 passes if needed.

General skincare: 8/10--Very moisturizing. Leaves the skin feeling clean and smooth. Has an antiseptic-like effect.

Scent: 9/10--Very green and springlike.

Price: 10/10--Cheap in Hungary. Reasonably-priced in the Balkans.

Would I buy again: 10/10--Ohhhhh yes. This cream is brilliant.

This is the company where the cream is made. I highly recommend it!

Barbon is about a $ here, pretty cheap, like other creams, available on our market. I think, only Denim Classic and Nivea (Mild and Sensitive) are about $2 Dodgy

I do not know about the Euro Denim, but the Indian one is awful. Way too cologne-musky.

I recently bought a tub of this cream, during a trip in Budapest. The tub was extremely inexpensive: about 350 Hungarian forints (nearly €1,25). I also bought some Barbon aftershave.

Well, I have to agree with Jeff: this cream is quite a nice surprise. Few creams deliver so much for so little. The scent is awesome, something like a woodier/"herbier" version of Musgo, and the performance is excellent. A great addition to my shave den!

What does it mean that I read the subject as Bourbon? Is this available in the US?

This is a great cream especially for the price. It's very similar to Musgo Real. I really like the aftershave too. It's a nice mossy scent with a good amount of menthol.

This is hands down my favorite cream in a tube! The scent is unobtrusive and it takes very little product to produce mounds of protective lather. I'd say even though the tube is considerably smaller it will last as long as my much larger tube of Proraso Sandalwood. I find it more protective and just as moisturizing as the Proraso as well. I put my Bulgarian creams ahead of the Proraso as well but just short of Barbon.
I love Trumpers Violet too but that's more for scent and shave quality as it lacks the moisturizing aspect of these others.

YMMV of course

Just go to a SPAR supermarket or a Rössmann drugstore chain while in Budapest Smile
The cream is extremely inexpensive, less than €1,5 each tube

Thanks! I'll be keeping an eye out. I'm sure I'll find one with 5 days to explore the city.

Where did all these attachments come from?

The after shave is equally as good. Try to get some of the other Hugarian products too if you can.
