Hello Gentlemen,

This is a shaving cream I've bought from Berlin and I didn't read on the forum about it.

Gentlemens tonic is a London based establishment. As far as I know, this is their only shaving cream offering.

The presentation is minimalistic and quality.

It has a very clean and refined scent of bergamot, I just can't get enough of smelling it. It is a soft cream like TOBS' creams.

It lathers very easily with a small dab of product:

The lather produced is more than enough for a 3-4 pass shave. It is creamy, slick and keeps the face moist. Skin care properties is high level with this cream.

It is a paraben free - natural ingredients product according to the site (http://www.gentlemenstonic.com/products/...Cream.html). It contains babassu oil for moisturizing and manuka honey for tissue repair and nourishment of the skin. I have never heard of those two ingredients before but they seem to work pretty good.

This cream has become one of my favourites and is as perfect as a cream gets, in my opinion. I recommend it strongly, even it is on the pricey side.

Nice , my friend.I never heard of this cream , either the company.

What it puzzles me , that no word in all the ingredients , just the "key ingredients" , which are two.Do you have the ingredient list on your box , Burak?

Bergamot is a nice scent , I can tell.Did you get the aftershave balm too?

Thank you, gentlemen.

Teiste, the cream is one of the best i've used. I bought it from 'the different scent' in Berlin.
The sales assistant, who was very knowledgable about wetshaving, recommended me the product.
Unfortunately, no ingredient list on the tub, but is made in England. I don't remember a paper box.
I didn't get the balm, only the SC.

A Creightons creation? It seems like to me.

Sorry, Teiste; I've been hearing about Creightons, but i don't know anything about the company.

Will you be so kind to tell about them?
