Soft and very smooth.
Leaves skin soft and cool.
Not as good as previous shaving cream.
Not as economical as the older version.
Doesn't froth as well (less lather).
I have been given this new, updated, The Body Shop For Men Maca Root Shave Cream as a present, having used the older For Men Shaving Cream from the Body Shop for many years. The 1st thing I noticed was the lack of lather and how it seemed like normal soap, rather than a shaving cream. You need to use almost twice as much compared to the old product and it is much thinner, although this makes it easier to mix with warm water and a shaving brush. The second was that it smells very different; much 'sweeter' and slightly more feminine. It does leave the skin nice and smooth, though, with no burning sensation, even when the razor gets slightly blunt. The razor glides very smoothly over skin. But I'm not sure if the very high price ( £5.50 for 125ml) warrants it's use. The previous product was cheaper for 100ml tube and lasted me 6 months! I don't think this 125ml tube will last more than 4 months of daily shaving.
