A few months ago my friend Mark Watterson, Managing Director of the Vulfix/Simpson factory, anticipated me his project for introducing on the market a high performing shaving cream, in the British style. It is the Simpsons Luxury Shaving Cream and it is now here in my hands. I received it last week as a sample to test and, after three shaves with it, I must say I’m totally impressed. This stuff is truly excellent. Now it is my pleasure and honour to present this gem to the B&B community. The Simpsons cream comes housed in a nice looking grey metal pot with screw cap and the traditional “Simpsons” logo written in red in the center of the lid. The pot contains 125 ml of semi-soft product, which is not as soft as most UK creams (Taylors, T&H or Trumpers) and not as dense as Castle Forbes – actually something “in between” these two categories. The cream looks shiny, full-bodied and has no scent. I personally would have preferred a classic Rose or Lavender shaving cream, but this one is completely unscented. The lather that I get from the Simpsons is very dense, thick and creamy. I find this lather to be similar to the lather of my favourite shaving soaps and, for that reason, I would define the Simpsons cream a shaving cream for soap lovers. Slickness and moisturizing properties are top notch and the post-shave feel is exceptional, too. In terms of performance I find this novelty to be comparable to the T&H Ultimate Comfort, the best unscented cream I’ve used until now. In conclusion I have to say that I’m very happy with this product. The Simpsons Luxury Shaving Cream for me is simply a fantastic cream and unquestionably a great addition to my den.
P.S. Mark when will a scented version arrive?
