Today I present SIMPSONS Luxury Shaving Cream Lavender &Vativert Limited Edition !

Simpsons worked on this cream for more than a year with their producer and Mark says they have managed to create a cream that i quote him " We believe it 's as good as it gets ! " ... Hmm let's see.

Presentation:
It comes in a gray tin someone to say anything special but in my opinion it is very beautiful and quite resistant for this i give 8/10.

Price and availability:
Simpsons is listed on the website priced at £ 12.95 proximatix 17.76 $ + shipping the price is 33.62 for you guys in the US i think is more than fair for what you get !
It is only available on their website though so for this i will give 8/10.

Ingredients :
I put a picture of the ingredients .... It is not my field here but i own a jar of Martin de Candre and i think it has only 5 or 6 ingredients so i give it a 5/10.

Consistency:
This is not a very soft cream it is quite consistent ,the cream has 85 % same ingredients as the unscented, remaining few ingredients probably making the difference in both consistency and scent.

Scent:
Very interesting, I can smell a huge bouquet of carnations in a autumn rainy day exactly when the rain stops, i can feel the moist air and the electricity in the atmosphere, I think the vativert gives this sensation ,don't get me wrong the lavender is definitely there it is not a sweet lavander though .
It's definitely British ,cold , strong but calming and relaxing at the same time,the scent is constant before and during shaving .I give the scent 10/10 I love it.

Lathering:
Simpsons recommend direct lathering on the face and that I usually do, but in this case I made an exception because I was not sure how I could take the pictures without trembling !
The method of lathering is the one presented on the forum , I put a small amount of cream in the bowl ,I used my M89 Silvertip fibre shaving and started gradually adding water to create lather not a thirsty cream i have wet my brush under running tap I added just a few drops of water after !

The result was an exceptional lather in an amount more than reasonable, the properties maintained until the completion of shaving . I give it a 10/10.

Post shave and lubrication:
Skin felt very smooth and hydrated haven't got that "tight" skin after it's really ok didn't feel the need to use AS. after.
In terms of lubrication , the razor glide effortlessly on the skin Rating 8/10 .

Conclusion:
A cream at least interesting , I did not have to use it for a longer period because I felt from the first second of use that is a premium product , I personally will buy and sandalwood and citrus burst !
I hope I covered all the points !

Thanks Mark/Vulfix for the opportunity to try the cream.
This is my firs review so i hope you guys excuse lack of experience !
And sorry for my bad english !


Enjoy

Nice review and pictures. I'll definitely try this scent, along with the Vanilla Rose and Sandalwood. I'm just waiting for them to arrive at US sellers.

Thank you all ! Afer trying more methods of lathering i find that is very easy to just load the brush directly from the thin ,the consistency of the cream allows that , it is very good for travel too ~

Hope they make this cream for a long time because is my favorite scent from all the products i have tried and i'am a very picky user !

Nice review. Looks like a good cream.

Interestingly, although the name implies that vetiver oil would be included, there is no vetiver in the ingredients list.

Sounds like a great scent, though. If I used creams at all I would certainly consider one of these new Simpson's creams. I haven't used a cream in several years.
