Here is a new cream from Russia which I NEVER heard of until today. It's called ZNAKHAR, which is Russian for witch doctor, and I just put it to the test.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Tons of lather very fast.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect stability.

General skincare: 9/10--Really moisturizing and protective.

Scent: 8/10--Clean, traditional, and classy.

Price: N/A--It was a gift. No idea how much.

Would I buy again: 10/10--Definitely, if it was sold here.

Russia is now a major producer of some of the best shaving creams which unfortunately are not available here in North America. This ZNAKHAR, or Wunder Doktor cream is absolutely awesome. I just wish the tube was bigger, because 40 ml won't last too long from daily use!

Nice review Jeff but can a vendor have it imported for sale or is it just for sale in Russia.

Another interesting review, Jeff. Although many of the creams you review are difficult or impossible to source for most of us, I enjoy seeing what is used in other parts of the world. Thank you for the shaving cream tour around the world. Thumbsup

Jerry, honestly I don't know. Guys, I could be wrong, but I have a feeling that only in Russia can this cream be found.

I sold this cream back around Christmas time. it is here in the states and I can get it tommorow from a supplier in Brighton Beach Brooklyn. No one wants it however beyond a few tubes so I dropped it.

Joe, it's too bad you can't get these on demand after excellent reviews like this one. Biggrin

I understand that it's not possible and that you need to order a certain amount of stock. It's unfortunate that most of us have no idea what we are looking at when we see creams like this one. No matter cheap or expensive, if it's great....it's great and there will be demand.

I think that you need a psychic to predict this......or just hire Jeff to review these obscure shaving creams!

A little insight on the Russian creams... Costs almost nothing locally, even less than Turkish products in Turkey. Quality is outstanding! Unfortunately there is not enough demand for US market to have a stock. If you're ever in Russia or have friends/relatives travelling, beg them to bring you back some goodies.

True, even in heavily Russian areas such as Brighton Beach Brooklyn. The distributor there had a few hundred of these with no takers.

Joe, did he have any other Russian creams?
