Cyril R Salter has been bringing grooming products to the masses since the 1940s. They are a leading importer, exporter, and distributor of some of wet shavings most loved brands, as well as their own branded products.

This luxury shaving cream is a staple of their line-up. It is a vegan recipe with no animal-derived ingredients. Loaded with vitamin E and glycerine, it whips up a protective, slick lather that nourishes your skin. Use a traditional shaving brush to produce a rich, superior lather from just a dollop of cream.

  • Classic Almond: Scented with sweet almond oil, this cream is sure to please with this classic scent.
  • Lime: This essential oil only fragrances is a refreshing pop of zesty lime.
  • French Vetiver: Earthy, masculine vetiver takes the lead in this aroma.
  • Indian Sandalwood: Popular sandalwood provides the fragrance of this soft and subtle fragrance.
  • Mint: High quality menthol oil is used for a vibrant pick-me-up in this mint aroma.
  • Sublime Citrus: Lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of orange hit all the right notes for a zesty, but delicate citrus fragrance.
  • Wild Rose: Rose has long been a traditional wet shaving fragrance, but Cyril R Salter has added geranium oil to intensify the floral note.

I have had to revise my standards...

I have used several quality shaving creams: TOBS, Proraso, Tabac, Art of Shaving, etc. These are all very, very good shave creams and soaps, and well worth using. However, I used the Cyril R. Salter shave cream for the first time today, and have to say that all the rest pale in comparison. Details: I used a Perma-Sharp Super blade (a 4/5 star blade) in a Merkur 1904/1906 closed comb razor (my daily driver). The brush was a WSP Silvertip Badger brush. In other words, I was using decent equipment. I also use a bowl to first soak the brush in hot water, then to whip up the lather. Using about an almond size "scoop" of the Cyril R. Salter, I noticed that the bubbles started out big but then grew finer and more dense. The scent of the French Vetiver reminded me of a walk in the fall woods with leaves being kicked around. Quite different, but very pleasant! Spreading the lather on my face, I could already tell this was an excellent shave cream. After doing my traditional three lather, three pass shave, then rinsing and wiping down with a cool wash rag, I noticed that the shave was one of the best I had ever had. My face was left feeling moist and smooth, there was a mild reminder of the fragrance of the Vetiver and everything was just "right". Bottom line in most people's book is, "Would you buy this again?" My answer is "YES, I would certainly buy this product again!" I have a LOT of shave cream in my shaving drawer, and need to work my way through some of it before doing so...but I may just be giving some away, just to make space. No you can't have my TOBS or Tabac. Sorry, guys. But you can get your own Cyril R. Salter, and that means that life is good.

Great shave creme

I really enjoy cyril r salter french vetiver. It makes tons of thick lather thats both slick and luxurious. But the scent, wow. It has a delicious funkiness, that stays with you all day. It is earthy and dark. I finish it with a vetiver aftershave that is light and sweet (Crusella&Co vetiver). The combo leaves me with a full vetiver spectrum experience.

Smells good and good for you

Wow! So that's what vetiver smells like. I can see why they say you either love or hate this smell. I love it. In addition, it beats up into a really unctuous lather that both stands the beard up and makes your razor truly glide. A double protection for your skin, in case you want to use one of those more aggressive razors--and it will make you smell like the sort of man who does.

Great performance, poor scent

After the best in class rating from Badger and Blade a few years back (for the Rose scent) I wanted to give this cream a try. I happen to love vetiver and decided to choose this version of the cream. I am quite disappointed with the scent. On opening the jar there is no scent, and after building a lather and applying it there was a mild smoky scent that was not at all appealing. The performance of the cream is excellent, however. I'll use up the jar, but I will not be purchasing another.
