  • Keeps the skin healthy and strengthens the beard hairs.
  • Minimizes discomfort and itchiness after shaving.
  • Suitable for dry and sensitive skin due to mild ingredients.

  • It is also enriched with vegetable fats (unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats) and refined coconut oil.
  • It prevents razor bumps after shaving.

The thick lather creates a protective layer between your skin and the razor. It lathers quickly and effortlessly against the skin. It relaxes the skin and prepares it for the razor to glide smoothly across the face. It nourishes and hydrates your skin with natural oils.

It has an authentic and fresh bitter almond aroma.

It only requires a spoonful size of an almond to make heaps of creamy and rich froth. The foaming bowl is sufficient for around three strokes. The cream tub would last several months with daily use.

The only downside is the steep price for the quantity you get. It is recommended product for novices or seasoned customers. You would not need any other after-shave product when you use this cream.  

The product has received many positive reviews from the customers. Though expensive, it offers good value for money.
