This cream is excellent. I bought in on Friday for 8 euros. I have used it 2 times and I am excited. It has menthol and a nice subtle sandalwood scent. It reminds me a little of the Proraso red scent but it's far better. Of course, I recommend it. Lathers very easily and leaves the skin extremely smooth. We have a winner here! Totally a vfm.

Leonidas, there is an artisan soap maker called Faena.
Also, there are some good creams like Prosar and Froika.

I own the tube version.
Nice but nothing special, I prefer Proraso Red over it, and Proraso Red still is nothing that extraordinary.

I like it too, works just fine. If you haven't tried Proraso blue yet it may worth giving that a shot too.

Bob, I have tried Proraso Blue and I like it as well. As it concerns the performance of the creams, If I had to choose between those two, I think I would prefer Lea Classic.

Here's a challenge - cheap creams (under $15/15€) that come in a jar. I'm not big on tubes personally, though I know of several value creams that do come in tubes.

If you get on the mailing list at creightons.com, they 3-4 times a year have 30-50% discount on 1-2 of their 5 EXCELLENT St. James 150 ml shaving creams, which comes in a heavy solid glass pot similar to the one MDC comes in.
This cream is right at the top regarding performance & scents IMHO.

Standard price is £15 for the 150ml, which already is a bargain IMHO.

If you hunt cheap budget creams with good performance my advice is to buy 2-3 Ikea Grundtal glass pots and press the tube creams into that.

Yes, everyone has their preferences. There are so many of these "nothing special", as some would refer to them, soaps and creams that just seem to do a good job of letting you get a good shave. They are "special" in that they don't break the bank or prevent you from getting a good shave because they are inexpensive.
