"MY" Simpsons Luxury Shave Cream Review

Here's a fantastic British produced shaving cream that will be a delight for any British cream lover. I'm a big fan of some British soaps, but I LOVE this cream!

Ease of lathering: 10/10 - Wow, an explosion of rich lather so fast!

Longevity of lather: 10/10 - Perfect stability for multi-passes.

General skincare: 8/10 - Quite protective and comfortable.

Scent: 10/10 - Brilliant - a non-scent that I LOVE!

Price: £12.95 – That’s about $20.02 USD.

Would I buy again: 10/10 - You bet!

This cream has such an "old-school" feel, which the British soaps were famous for many years ago. When I was lathering up with this stuff this morning, I thought of my Dad. He used British soaps after WWII when I was a kid.

The larger mug would be better. Nothing wrong with the height of this one, but could stand to be a little wider.

Thanks for the great review! I'm looking forward to trying this one.

Will this one ultimately be available at the US vendors or just straight from Simpsons?

I'm sure the US vendors will have it someday. Just took me 8 days to get it from the UK. Not bad.

Very little. I just barely dipped the tips of a damp brush in the cream then started making lather in the mug, adding a little water as needed.

Will it play nice with a M&F or a Rooney Brush?

It'll probably work, but it may void your warranty if you don't use a Simpson brush. Nono

Thanks for the review Johnny. Looks like it has good ingredients, maybe they'll come out with a nicely scented version?

Yeah, great news. Thanks for the update Mark. This definately is on my list of nexts.

And thank you to our vendors and The 'Nook. It's great to have a forum where we can get first hand updates from vendors and details on what they were looking for when they were developing the products.
