Isn't it great that we have vendors that allow us to try products from around the world? Today I used 2 products from Bulgaria. Herbs of Bulgaria Lavender shave cream and the matching aftershave

Simply put, this stuff is amazing. The scent is subtle and terrific, the performance is top notch. This is one of the best shaving purchases I have made this year.

It lathers like you would expect a soft cream in a tube to lather. It leaves enough residue after a stroke to allow you go go back over it or buff it. I have sensitive skin as well, and I was pretty sure that this was going to burn me but it didn't. It says "natural product" on the tube and I believe it. I didn't see any parabens or SLS's in the ingredients either. Apparently, the maker uses only real lavender oil. I'm not sure about what all that means but what it equaled up to was a terrific shave.

The FUME Lavander lit me on fire but this stuff is just amazing. The scent is 10x better than the FUME as well.

As good as this cream was I have to tell you that the real winner in this whole purchase was definitely the matching Herbs of Bulgaria - Lavender After Shave. It's a splash with an awesome menthol kick whose scent matches the cream with pure Lavender goodness. Also surprising was that it came in a thick glass, control pour spout, bottle. Very classy looking, indeed.

I reccommend both these products highly. The are relatively cheap and totally worth it. I got mine at Shaveabuck.

Nice. I really enjoy lavender, but not so much that I can have too many lavender products at once.

This sounds like it deserves my attention for the "after my current lavender soaps run out" list.

I ordered every shaving cream in stock from Shaveabuck. I'm going to try the Herbs of Bulgaria Rose cream and AS tomorrow. It smells wonderful.Way better than TOBS, I can tell you that.

Domino is another one that smells really, really good. Very surprising.

Since I have TOBS Rose, I'm looking forward to your comments on the Herbs of Bulgaria Rose. I've been eyeing that cream & AS for a while.

I have the Rose of Bulgaria cream and I'm impressed with the lather and skincare but not with the scent. Perhaps one day I'll try the Lavender stuff.

I ordered this cream from Joe as well, Also the Rose version. Both wonderful products. Unfortunately I let my Dad try these along with my tube of Barbon cream and he won't give them back.

I see a family feud brewing in the future ! They are all much better than the price would indicate!

So it's one of the best purchases over the last 3.5 weeks? Biggrin

OK, I'm going to have to try the AS.

I've actually bought quite a bit so far. Like I said, I just bought every cream offered by shaveabuck.

The AS is the real winner here. This may become my new favorite.

Anybody know where to get the lavender aftershave? Shaveabuck doesn't list it anymore. I got the Rose of Bulgaria from him and love it. I went to order some more and it's not listed either.

One of my favorites. If they made it in 400ml bottles I'd buy those instead.

The Herb and the rose of Bulgaria are great,
You might also like Nuka cream too. I think its made in the same plant, has a plain scent though but still great.

Gee, I hope this isn't going to be discontinued. I hate having to ration things,

I bought this shave cream when I first started out.

Loved the scent and got an excellent shave with it. The only bad thing was I broke out with a poisen ivy like rash that lasted about 2 hours.Sad

Didn't know there was an aftershave. If it smells as good as the cream. It's purchase worthy for sure.

Oh man! Ya got me hooked on an excellent but hard-to-find product, and now you're gonna cut me off?! I'd buy that Rose of Bulgaria aftershave by the quart. I never got to try the lavender. I hope you reconsider.

Edit: Sorry for this post being in the Soaps and Creams section. I messed up the other day and posted about the aftershave in two places. I like the cream, but I REALLY like the aftershave!

So does the rose actually smell like rose? I ask because I've tried a few other rose-scented products and they all smell like carnation. The only thing in my stash that really smells like rose is Creed Windsor and they don't make a shaving soap sadly!
