I have the Dettol Cool that I found at an Indian market. I believe it was $4 or so, just a bit more than Godrej. I've only used it a couple of times, not recently either, but I remember it to provide a good shave. Nothing to write home about until you start to consider the cost/value ratio.

Never heard of it, there's a sanitizing product here in Australia by the same name.

Its the same product line actually. The sanitizer is sold mostly in Indian stores here in the states and you can find the shaving cream there sometimes. I have seen Cool and Fresh. I have the Fresh , it smells faintly like the sanitizer. Its the typical Indian cream to me,very easy to lather and pretty good performance, a fair cream overall.

I have a sample of Dettol Cool that I've used from time to time. It provides a perfectly adequate shave to me, with a fairly generic ( but pleasant ) scent.

the place that carries it is a bit far from me (roughly 30-35 miles), so I might pass on it for now unless I'm in that area for a different reason.

Andrew, I wouldn't go out of the way to pick it up myself, but I wouldn't pass it up if I ran across it.

If you are dabbling with the Indian products, keep your eyes peeled for the Godrej stuff a s well. They have creams, and even a hard soap that gets good reviews. The Indian Shulton products get good press as well ( I've used the Indian Old Spice Lime cream and love it ).

I have a Dettol Cool cream which I rarely use. It smells decent and lathers very well, and it has a good cooling sensation, but I much prefer Godrej Menthol Mist.
