Castle Forbes Lavender Shaving Cream (200g)
Castle Forbes Shaving Cream is packed with essential oils and emollients – the very things your face needs the most. The essential oils are present is such high quantities that only small batches of the product can be run at any given time – something the larger manufacturers could never consider. And the significant presence of lavender essential oils means a light and natural scent to the product. So rich in its formulation, a small amount will produce a thick lather to lubricate your face, hold in the moisture, and provide the perfect surface for your razor to glide across your face as it effortlessly whacks your whiskers. Common issues of razor burn, bumps, ingrown hairs, nicks and irritation will be problems of the past and you will walk away with a smooth and well-nourished face.

I was glad to see the addition of this Castle Forbes shaving cream to the Bullgoose lineup. As others have noted, it takes very little on the brush to make a good lather. The result is a smooth, comfortable shave. And the lavender scent is very pleasant, notable when shaving but appropriately mild afterwards.
One of the BEST soap ever. Period
I've been using CF's Lavender for about 6 years now. It's firmly planted in my rotation as it's so easy to lather and provides great cushion and glide. I sometimes underlay it with Tabac to get more glide, but you don't need to. Most would agree that it's perfectly great without the Tabac. Smell is subjective but I certainly like the Lavender (a little pronounced but very relaxing to my nose). you don't need much and it lasts forever. Value is also subjective, but it's a staple as far as I'm concerned.
This is one of my all time favorite shave creams as are the other two shave cream offerings from Castle Forbes. I have been using the Lavender for a number of years and will never be without it in my rotation. Some say that it is too expensive, but I find that it is a very good value because of its superior quality which requires less product for a superior shave. It is a large tub (6.8oz) as well which adds to the value. It may be a small thing but I like the relativly shallow and wide opening of the tub which allows me to use all of the product without scraping my brush handle on the edge of the tub. The quality of the shave and wonderful fragrance of true lavender makes for a very enjoyable shaving experience. I enjoy this cream so much that it frequently "jumps rotation." I highly recommend this wonderful shave cream and suggest that you consider giving yourself a treat and purchase a tub.
