Domino Shaving Cream

Domino is a shaving cream from Macedonia. The tube says that it’s scented after the famous French perfume of the same name; if that’s actually the case, I feel sorry for the French because it must be some vile stuff. Of course, I also think that might be a lie, since Google didn’t turn up a French perfume by that name; only one out of India. Or the after-shave of the same name made by the same company. That is also rather vile.

Anyways, it’s mostly what I would say is an unpleasantly harsh, soapy / chemically smell, combined with a cloyingly fake floral smell. I honestly can’t really tell what they might have been trying for with the scent, but it didn’t turn out good. At least it’s not overpoweringly strong & bad smelling (unlike the aftershave).

The lather didn’t seem to bad at first; good thickness, ok glide, whipped up pretty easily. However there was a fair bit more irritation than I usually get. At the end, it seemed to have more of a drying effect than the moisturization I’m looking for.

  • 3/10 Scent Pleasantness
  • 6/10 Scent Strength
  • 6/10 Lather Quality

Overall, I really would not recommend this product. 3/10. Smells bad. At least it’s really cheap.
