Kaloderma Mild Shaving Cream

Edit: Looks like this stuff has been discontinued. Sorry!

I’d consider this shaving cream to be yet another bit of evidence that inexpensive and cheap are not always the same thing.

It lathers up quite nicely. Very little water was needed to whip up a nice thick cream that still had plenty of lubrication and glide. Good lather stability, and the moisturization was pretty darned good as well. Left me feeling pretty damned good.

The scent is what I’d say is nice, but not great or good. Camomile, with a bit of what seemed like a medicinal tinge and maybe some other herbs, and a bit of a soapy undertone. Strength-wise, it’s just about right, reasonably strong without significant fading.

  • 7/10 Scent Pleasantness
  • 9/10 Scent Strength
  • 9/10 Lather Quality

Overall, I will give this a 8/10. Pretty good value for the price.

  • Cost: I picked up a 100 mL tube for $4.99 when browsing around London Drugs, also available from them online.
