View Full Version : The Molton Brown Experience?
09-20-2006, 02:31 PM
I just won an auction for MOLTON BROWN Supershave Olibanum Shaving Cream (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=002&item=120031457098&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1). I've never tried their products before and was wondering if anyone here had. Reviews, anyone?
(PS: "The Molton Brown Experience" would be a great band name.)

Yes, it's quite good. It's actually my preferred cream for traveling. I would describe the consistency as a slightly watered down hair conditioner, which takes some getting used to, but I think you'll enjoy it. It also smells delicious.
MB also makes my favorite body wash. If you can pick some up at a discount, I would recommend doing so. I wouldn't dream of paying full price for any of these products.

I tried the Molton Brown this morning, and it is some odd stuff. I put a bit in my bowl and after swirling it 3-4 times, the cream just vanished. This stuff is definitely brushless only.
I then placed more cream on my face where it tended to soak into the skin instead of lathering up. The consistency did remind me of watered-down hair conditioner or hand lotion without much scent. I was very disappointed so far, but soldiered on to find decent lubricity and surprisingly zero nicks. I did three passes total and got a very smooth shave.
After my standard alum block and coral skin food, I went about my normal routine. But about 30 minutes later I felt my face and it has never felt smoother. It's beyond BBS. I don't know what they put in that stuff, but i feel like I slept in a vat of aloe vera or something.
So, the shaving experience was rather blah, the scent was marginal, but I certainly can't argue with the results. Molton Brown is unlike anything I've ever tried, that's for sure.
