  • Traditional shaving cream
  • With a brush, it whips up a rich, dense lather
  • Scented with lime essential oils

Castle Forbes resides on a 6,000 acre estate in Aberdennshire, Scotland. Lady Forbes (wife of the 23rd Lord Forbes) converted the former dairy building on the grounds into a perfumery in 1996. Since then, she has worked with professional fragrance creator, Andrew French, to develop her passion for scent. The Castle Forbes Collection has evolved into a range of top-quality fragrances which is particularly noted for its shaving products. Try out their luxurious Castle Forbes Lime Essential Oil Shaving Cream.

This cream whips up a dense, frothy lather with a traditional brush and bowl. This product comes in a 200ml container with plenty to go around. It's very thick, so it doesn't take much at all to get all the protection you'll need. If you want to get the best results, make sure you use a brush. It makes a huge difference and it ensures that you get the best possible performance.

And the lime scent is the real deal. It is a strong, citrusy pick-me-up. If you like the clean, refreshing zip of lime, then you will love this cream. It provides protection against irritation and a phenomenal scent.

Simply The Best

For me, this is the best cream I have used so far. The lime scent is unbelievable, try pure concetrated lime. It's a great scent to start the day with. The cream is a thicker consitancy and is not as "soft" as other creams but once you later it up in a bowl, it will quickly whip up into a fine merange that will remain consitent even after three passes. The glide it provides is fantastic and it leaves your face with no razor irritation. It is an expensive cream but I find it well worth it. The container will last a long time as you only need a fingernail size dab for a three pass shave.

Castle Forbes Lime Essential Oil Superb

I'd already begun to wind down my shaving software to a few choice ones & recalled how I had enjoyed a sample CF essential oil lavender cream several years ago. Once my Arlington soap stick passed to the great beyond, I plunked down the forty plus bucks without hesitation for the lime and happy I did. Upfront it might seem pricey, occupying that middle cost niche between Trumper and Penhaligon's, but the tub size is generous, yielding a rich, slick lather, and it's sharply lime-scented bouquet packs enough wallop to delight any ardent citrus lover.

Love this shaving cream. One of the best I've ever used. It's a little pricey but you don't need much. So it works out in the end
