Taylor of Old Bond Street – Avocado

Taylor of Old Bond Street Avocado Shaving Cream

The TOBS Avocado shaving cream is probably the best of all the creams from Taylor of Old Bond Street (TOBS)!

Performance
This shaving cream gives you the best shaving experience from DE shaving. It lathers thickly with ease and provides heaps of dense foam. Excellent cushioning properties and provides a layer of foam to cushion your blade and gives a rather smooth shave. Particularly worthy of mention is that it washes off easily and doesn’t leave a slimy residue like some shaving creams.

Scent
Some describe this as freshly cut grass, but it mostly smells like cucumber with a fresh, green scent. The scent is quite pleasant but not overpowering, and barely noticeable when the face is dry.

Other Comments
This cream comes quite dense and has a texture slightly thicker than whipped cream. One of the most highly rated shaving creams at Badger and blade forums.

The TOBS Avocado comes in two sizes – a 75 ml tube or a 150 g bowl.

Worth its price?
Considering that it sells at.. It definitely is a shaving cream that is worth its price.

Conclusion
Given it’s ease of lathering, foam properties, and good price, the TOBS Avocado shaving cream is one that should be in tour shave den and personally it’s my favourite and “go-to” shaving cream, especially for those mornings where you’re in a rush.
