I am very slowly transitioning from soaps to creams, and I'm interested in some of classic creams that have around for a long while. One I've noticed is Atkinsons. I am not enthusiastic about trying it blindly, so I'm interested in opinions. Also - are these two, the tube and the tub, the same cream?

I have the cream in tube, ‘For Gentlemen’ but not the product in the tub. I am under the impression that they aren’t the same but I am not familiar with the tub product. The “For Gentlemen’ product in the brown tube is the same cream as I Coloniali Rhubarb Softening Cream, but with a lavender scent. It’s lightly mentholated.

Hope that this helps a little.

I also have the lavender scented cream in the tube, and it's a very fine cream. There is also a matching aftershave splash. I've been tempted to try the one in the tub as the scent sounds appealing.

I too have used the cream in the tube. It is an excellent cream and as noted, it is the same formulation as I Coloniali Rhubarb Softening Cream.

I recall using a few years ago in my "cream days".  Nice price and impressed enough to make a repeat purchase.

I have both the lavender and rhubarb creams. I had believed they had been discontinued as Atkinson's was relaunched as a Niche designer fragrance a la Creed. I will try and find the tub.

The new cream is £45.00 a tub, I would rather have AdP at that price.

I just ordered two tubes of the lavender cream before they disappear.
