Phil from BullGoose and I did a "cultural exchange" of creams recently, and this is one of the creams he sent me:

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Rich, creamy lather in no time!

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Great stability which is important.

General skincare: 8/10--Real cooling, somewhat less than the Palmolive Menthol creams but protective.

Scent: 8/10--Nice. A lot nicer than Gillette Menthol cream from Lebanon.

Price: 10/10--I traded for this cream, but it's reasonably priced.

Would I buy again: 10/10--For sure. This French version is excellent. Phil knows his stuff!

I was never really a fan of the Gillette creams because I found that the ones from Lebanon stank from artificial scents and had lousy skincare. This stuff from France is a very different type because it not only lathers super-richly, it smells nice, is well-mentholated, and looks after the skin quite well.

Jeff, I have the non-mentholated sensitive skin version and find it to be excellent, as well.

That cream is somewhat available here in Portugal also. I never gave it much attention - maybe because of the "Gillette" name. =9
I just have to try it one of this days.

Gillette Menthol shaving cream is a winner. In my opinion it is - together wirh her "sensitive" sister - one of the best shaving creams I have ever tried.
I have heard rumours that all European Gillette creams were discontinued so I stocked up with several tubes of both. Sad

Interesting. Now I want to give it a try. I was looking at the Nivea at BGS, I seen Gillette and immediately thought, canned goo in a tube, yuck. Phil may want to note "not like canned goo" next to it. lol

Thanks for the review.
