This is the cream version of De Vergulde Hand, the Dutch brand which has been around over 450 years.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--A pleasure to work with. So easy to get going.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Very stable, so multi-passes are no problem.

General skincare: 8/10--Good. Quite soothing and protective.

Scent: 8/10--Very nice and classy. The soap version has a stronger scent.

Price: 10/10--Very cheap in Holland.

Would I buy again: 9/10--Oh yes. I do prefer the soap version, however.

This is a brand which I was introduced to by one of my dearest friends who is also a vendor at TSD. This young man lives in Holland, and he knows his shaving products very well. I love this cream because of its rich and stable lather, and it has a nice calming effect on the skin. For a wetshaver on a tight budget, De Vergulde Hand would be a great choice.

I wholeheartedly agree with Jeff on this review of DVH cream. I also prefer the soap version but of you prefer creams & have an opportunity to check this one out then you certainly should. The constant with DVH cream/soap is that they are stupid easy to lather. If you have lather problems with DVH then you need to revisit your class notes from Lathering 101.

Well what can I say .... YMMV, you can get it in every city here, it's very cheap, it's ok but I only bought it once.

Brian, mine has been uncapped for a little over one day and when I'm done with the Italian soap column in the cabinet (2 more days) I bet it'll be ready to use. It's quite muted already.

You might already know, but the soap is available at Polycarpo, downtown Lisbon.
