[Image: HRZvW1W.jpg][Image: blga9rW.jpg]Hello!  I am a big fan of Hemingway, and this vendor was having a 20% off Father’s Day sale on their set of shaving cream, aftershave, and balm.  The packaging was what one would expect for such highly priced items, and the fragrance is wonderful...I pick up a slight citrus/tobacco/leather/vanilla scent with none of the elements overpowering the other.  I can’t wait to try them tomorrow morning and report back.

Interesting.  Nice packaging.  Give us a shave report when you get a chance.

Gentlemen...the first thing I want to say right now is that I have zero interest one way or another in this company.  The next thing I want to say is that the combination of the shaving cream, aftershave, and balm to finish it all off is the best, most dynamite trio, that i have ever used!  I did a three pass shave with a 4th for minor touch ups.  I obtained the closest and most comfortable shave I have experienced with zero irritation.  The best soaps and creams for my face are:  klar seifen, baume.be, castle forbes, mitchells wool fat, wholly kaw, and czech & speake.  Hemingway shaving cream tops them all.

Thanks! I figured the pictures would help! One other cream that I really like is the Santa Maria Novella...really nice as well...but this Hemingway stuff just edged them out, and I loved the residual slickness/protection!

Obviously Hemingway resonates/works very well for you.
Its always good to hear when a product really hits a home run.

Thanks for sharing the pics and report.

My pleasure! I feel very comfortable recommending the cream, and the balm! I have other aftershaves that I like better like chella cool, but the three of these matched up together is pretty incredible!

Yeah...this may be a little bit silly, but I like this cream so much I just bought a second one. The only doubles I have are of Castle Forbes lime and Klar Seifen Classic!

It can't be that great if you only have one backup. Biggrin 

Seriously though, it's nice to find a soap/cream that totally hits the sweet spot.  Enjoy.

Two things:

1. You would have more counter space if you ditched that electic toothbrush.

2. I wonder if the vendor has licensed all the Hemingway rights he/she needs to carry these products. (Sorry, IP licensing is a huge part of my job.)

Anyway, it sounds like a suite of great products!
