Good cream better than most but not perfection Review by NZShaver
Being a new DE shaver I have purchased a variety of blades and creams to sample to see what works best.
I have used the Acqua Di Parma only once and it is a very nice cream. I will need to carry on using it for a while to determine if it's as good as I've been led to believe.
I've sampled many others including Geo F Trumper, Taylors of Bond St, DR Harris, Proraso of which all have been very good except the Proraso which is merely OK.
If I can make any comment it is on how good the Geo F Trumper Skin Food is as both a preshave and postshave moisturiser. It's the best of any I have tried and well worth a go. You use so little that it really goes a long way.
The Acqua Di Parma is defiitely as good as the others but time will tell after a few more shaves as to whether it's been worth the rather big price tag.
its alright Review by Moh
not sure what the big deal with this cream is, i've used it twice now and I also use The Art of Shaving cream and maybe its just me but I just dont see any difference in my shave.
ADP RECONSIDERED Review by Atty 2000
I've reconsidered my review here. I use ADP as part of my regular rotation and the jar is still 1/2 full. Is it expensive to buy? Yes. But the number of quality shaves you get makes it, honestly, inexpensive when you think of the other tubes and cans you might buy during the same time period.
Also, remember, this stuff works best if you treat it like a soap and face lather. Load brush for 40 seconds by twirling in the jar. Wet tips and apply. Wet tips as needed. You have enough, easily, for 3+ passes.
It really is a great shave and followed by Colonial or Essenza fragrance, it is superb.
Great Product! Review by Rick
I absolutely love this product. You will pay a good penny but well woth it. ADP gives you a great shaving experience. I look forward to shaving each morning. It leaves your face smooth and refreshed.
ADP Well Worth the Price Review by MikeB2000
Yes, there are other products that are less expensive that perform well but not at the same level as ADP. ADP provides a clean close shave and moisturizing properties that continue even after the shave cream has been washed away. One tub of ADP has lasted me more than a year so the price per shave is not that great. The only product that I would put in the same category with ADP would be Santa Maria Novella.
Aqua Di Parma Shave Cream Review by Rick
I bought ADP and absolutely love it! It smells great and gives you a very soothing shaving experience. It's pricy, however it will last a long time. Use a shave brush and it's going to be a great experience. I HIGHLY recommend this product. I look forward to shaving in the morning, a pretty awesome ritual for me now :-)
Sure, it's good but not great. Review by Atty2000
So many better choices for far less. Truefitt &Hill 1805, Trumpers GFT and don't forget Nancy Boy Signature cream. Better than all of them..... By far and cheap.
Grooming Lounge gives such good service and I'm reluctant to recommend a brand they don't carry, but once you try Nancy Boy and their after shave balm, you might just throw everything else out.
With the ADP, it smells good, but that is it. Good lather but so what? Really not a great shave. NOT moisturizing. Very irritating. And the after shave balm is awful. I mean bad.
The cologne though is really really good. Expensive but worth it. Truly.
Compare to a shave with T & H 1805 and their aftershave balm and the difference is night and day.
If you feel a need to spend a lot of money on shaving cream, then buy something from Castle Forbes. Also not worth it but at least it is a good product.
Pricey Review by Doug
It is a very good product but you can get others for much cheaper. If you have the money go for it but don't save up for it.
Great with the brush Review by Josh
Got this and a Grooming Lounge Shave Brush, and it's like a match made in heaven. This stuff is great, not runny at all, and it gives me a great shave.
