So...some time ago I ended up finding this shaving cream on Connaught when they were in the 'seconds' bin.

At a total of $6 including shipping for TWO tubes...I decided to take a gamble on them.

They've been lying on my shelf for a month or so now but this morning I was curious to try out a cream with my brand new Robert Becker scuttle...and remembered this cream.

First of all, the name.
"Supermax Ultimate". Seriously? That just might be the worst name I've ever heard but...don't judge a book by its cover..or the soap by its inane name.

I did like that it said it contained Aloe Vera and Tea Tree extract.
Took out a tube and put an almond sized blob in the warm scuttle and began lathering up with my SOC boar brush.

It took a bit more work than the Cella did but after a 100 swirls or so I had what appeared to be a really nice, THICK lather.

Now, I don't know if this cream is supposed to be lathered in a bowl or directly on the face but I've come to realize that most any soap or cream can be used either way.

Scent: Basically none at all. I couldn't pick up on anything.

Performance: Now this is where this cream surprised me. Wow. The lather it produced had amazing staying power (I got a phone call in the middle of lathering...came back 10 mins later and the brush was still full of THICK lather with nice peaks).
On my face it was creamy, thick and protective and gave an amazing shave.

So yeah, too bad about the name..but the performance really was....supermax Smile

It's made in Bulgaria by Fresh Up Cosmetics, and excellent stuff. I also have the mentholated version which is a real treat.

Used it a second time and it really gives a most excellent lather. I just wish it had some scent Wink

I have used Super-Max classic many, many times. Fresh Up Cosmetics seems to offer OEM branding/contract manufacturing for their clients. My tip is leave your brush slightly damp with water and you can add water gradually but be careful not to thin a lather too much water.

The scent issue is easily solved with a small bottle of your favorite essential oil. Just add a drop or two while lathering. Start with one drop and make sure you tolerate it and see what the scent strength is; then you can add more the next day if you want to.
