- Old Bond street
- sample pack
- Jermyn Street
- gold standard
My husband enjoys Taylor of Bond Street products, getting the sample pack was a no brainer. However, we were a bit disappointed with the plastic containers the samples came in. The lids were so tight thag some of containers cracked while trying to open them. Also, the shave cream was all over the outside of some of the containers. The overall packaging experience was annoying... HOWEVER, my husband has enjoyed trying new shave cream sents- now having new favorites, and really appreciates the consistent quality of shave he gets from using this product.
Great for sensitive skin
If you're like me and a lot of shave creams prickle or burn, the Taylor of Old Bond Street sample pack is a great opportunity. For me, TOB's Jermyn Street is the gold standard of creams for sensitive skin: decent, fast lather, excellent protection and no burn, not even a prickle. But the revelation of the sample pack is that a few other TOBs creams either don't irritate at all or are mild enough that they can be combined with Jermyn Street for a non-irritating shave with an extra-nice scent. Except for Jermyn Street, I won't name those that work for me, since they might be different for each person. But, I do highly recommend the sample pack.
Best way to get to know TOBS
Buying the Taylor of Old Bond Street sample pack is the best way to learn about the company's many different creams. For someone like me, who finds many soaps and creams burn, Jermyn Street is the gold standard of creams for sensitive skin. It has a mild scent, so it's not totally boring, and, when whipped up with a brush, it quickly produces a full-enough, slick, protective lather. But one of the revelations in trying the sample pack is that there are several other TOBS creams (though certainly not all) that either don't irritate too much or can be combined with Jermyn Street to provide very pleasantly scented lathers. Mr. Taylor and the lavender creams are my two favorites so far. Other shavers should get the pack and try their own mixes.
Shaving cream great
Tons are already my favorite, so I thought I try different scents ,so far it has been good sandalwood still my favorite.
I have not yet had an opportunity to try all of these tests but the scents are great and they all lather up nicely.
