Finally got a chance to take the new “Sensitive” version of La Toja shave cream for a test drive.  

Wow.

The scent is a mild woodsy fragrance to me.  A small dollop in the mug provided ample lather for 3 passes with an easy 2 passes worth left in the mug.  The cream goes on thick and provides fantastic cover with lots of slip.  

I loaded up a “Crystal” Israeli blade in my 1949 Gillette Aristocrat Jr and set to work.  3 days of stubble cleaned up quite quickly in 3 passes with 0 irritation even on the final ATG (against the grain) pass.  

The true test comes if I don’t use any aftershave balm or splash.  I often use this as a benchmark for the quality of the cream as a few hours after shaving how my face feels tells me a great deal about the soap or cream.  Beautiful.  My face felt fantastic, moisturized yet not oily and no razor burn at all.  The scent lasted very lightly for a few hours into the morning and faded out by around noon.  The scent alone earns this a place on the shelf in my regular rotation and the overall quality of the lather ensures it will stay there.

 

Cheers

Brad
