Here are a few new creams on the shaving scene....alverde,from germany,is made with the witch hazel already in it !...makes sense ....new F1 kpem from the russian federation has ginseng in the mix for a healthy shave,and "smooth cream" from india boasts a long list of ayurvedic herbs to keep your shave glowingly healthy

interesting, just yesterday I was at the local DM that carries the Alverde RC
(I live in Germany) but must have missed it. Maybe I can get some of that cream
and comment on it later on

Hey guys

Today I picked up the complete alverde set:
The shaving cream and the balm

Unfortunately I cannot recommend the shaving cream.
The ingredients, the performance and the smell is good,
But the cream does not build lather. In the bowl it remains flat and creamy.
I think it is supposed to be used as no-brush cream.
It only produces minor amounts of lather.
For the shaving fan unbearable.

The balm works pretty nice though. I think of it as a balm equivalent to the speick as


So this cream with a very liquid appearance and poor lathering properties won't work for me

Indeed, Alverde Man is rather a brushless cream than a regular shaving cream.
Although it is advertised on the tube to use a brush to lather up - forget it :bored: it does not produce any lather.
However, the ingredients are 100% natural and as a brushless cream it does work really well.
Generally I would not recommend this cream to any shaver :glare: - except you need a brushless cream.
