Hawkins & Brimble Shaving Cream | The Daily Shave

2 Просмотры
Hey guys! Ross here, back for another Daily Shave! Today’s shave features Hawkins & Brimble - Elemi & Ginseng shave cream. This cream comes to us from the UK as part of a line of many skin care products offered by Hawkins & Brimble.

Elemi & Ginseng is a beautiful scent that has a very calming and therapeutic nature to it. Admittedly, it’s difficult to describe just how well blended and amazing the scent is, but it can be used at any time during the year and for any occasion.

The cream itself provides a no nonsense type of performance. The cream is not very thirsty as the main ingredient is water already. If you add too much or leave too much in the brush, you’ll lose the lather very quickly. It lathers very easily and provides adequate primary slickness for your passes. I found the residual to lack a bit in terms of what I’m used to from most of our artisan shave soaps, but it wasn’t bad by any means. My lone concern with this cream is the lack of a great post-shave feel. I would not recommend going without a post-shave product after using this cream. My face did not feel dry by any means, but it wasn’t the most nourishing feel after the shave. Overall, I think if you’re looking for a cream that is simple and will get you through a shave without issue, you could certainly enjoy this product.

Overall, this shave was quite wonderful and was definitely an improvement upon my first shave with this cream. If you enjoy creams like TOBS or Castle Forbes, this UK based product would certainly be up your alley.
