    Review Summary:

    Overall I really enjoy using TOBS Sandalwood shaving cream. Their other scents perform the same way as well as lather the same way.


    • Amazing smell on all the types that I have tried
    • Builds an abundant amount of lather!
    • Performs extremely well
    • The sensitive skin version is my favorite cream for sensitive skin


    • The smell can be a little overwhelming for some
    • The sandalwood burns my skin but just a little bit

    Hello visitors of PrimandPrep, today I will be doing an article on the Taylor of old Bond Street shaving cream review!

    In this article, I will be referring to them as TOBS.

    And although TOBS has multiple scents to their shaving creams, the one I will be talking about today is their most popular scent, their sandalwood shaving cream.

    Not only was this the first shaving cream that I purchased from TOBS, but it is also my personal favorite.

    It actually made the top of our list as the best shaving cream for men, the sensitive skin version made the top of our list of the best shaving cream for sensitive skin, and even there shaving soap even made the top of our list of the best shaving soaps

    TOBS is a very old and recognized company out of London England.

    They started business in the shaving cream industry in 1854.

    So you can say that they have a little bit of experience in what they do.

    I really like the packaging that this shaving cream came in.

    The tub contains 5.3 ounces of shaving cream for approximately $16 on Amazon.com right now.

    Let’s get into the main portion of my Taylor of Old Bond Street shaving cream review so we can learn a little bit more about this ancient England-based shaving cream.

      The Scent

      This is something that really stood out to me.

      I own over a dozen Sandalwood shaving creams and soaps and this is hands-down my favorite one.

      It is kind of hard to explain the exact scent that comes from the tub.

      I would say that there is a hint of citrus tones as well as a hint of mint.

      It feels cooler on my face than most Sandalwood shaving creams.

      That being said, it is a powerful scent so for people that are looking for something a little bit milder or that have extremely sensitive skin, this might not be the best shaving cream.

      If that is the case, they also have a shaving cream for sensitive skin that works just as well but is a little lighter for the skin!

      The Latherability

      The Taylor of bond street shaving cream that comes in the tub is extremely soft.

      It feels like most body lotions do and it is extremely easy to take out and apply to your shaving brush.

      It is obviously extremely easy to load onto the brush because it is a cream.

      This is definitely one of the easier shaving creams that I own to lather up to a nice thick, rich cream that has the great volume to it.

      It is definitely denser and more slick compared to other shaving creams that I own.

      The ability to build up to a nice lather is one of the most important factors when it comes to soaps and creams and TOBS has this trait in spades.

      Don’t forget, it is also important to have one of the best shaving brushes to achieve a great lather.

      The Performance

      One of the most important criteria for performance in Taylor of old bond street sandalwood shaving cream in my opinion is how slick the lather is and whether or not I could come back to touch up without applying more lather to my face.

      This is definitely one of the slickest shaving creams that I own.

      It leaves my face nice and slick after all of my shaving passes.

      I am able to come back for touchups without applying too much shaving cream which is definitely beneficial to me.

      Overall the performance is quite excellent.

      The only thing that I did notice is a slight burning sensation.

      It is nothing that is too big but for individuals with sensitive skin, it might be a bigger issue.

      The Longevity

      I would say that this tub of TOBS is in the middle-of-the-road in terms of longevity.

      If you are a daily shaver it should last you approximately 9 months.

      I say this is about average. You really do not need too much Taylor of old bond street sandalwood shaving soap or cream in order to build enough lather for your shave.

      I think most people overuse this product and their supply dwindles a lot faster than it needs to.

      Overall it is a little bit more expensive per ounce at approximately 3 dollars.

      Also, I noticed that my skin is slightly dry after my shaves with TOBS.

      This may be due to the burning sensation that I feel or it might not.

      Either way, I suggest using a quality lotion post-shave.

      Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Review Conclusion

      Overall I really enjoy using TOBS Sandalwood shaving cream.

      Their other scents perform the same way as well as lather the same way.

      The only difference is the way that they smell.

      If you have never given TOBS a try, I highly suggest it.

      If you like creams and soaps that have mild smells, this might not be the cream for you.

      Also if you have sensitive skin, you might want to try a different brand of shaving cream tube because it does burn slightly and leaves my skin dry.

      But the lathering qualities, as well as performance, are extremely high-end and that is why TOBS is the go-to brand for a lot of wet shavers.

      Knowing how to use Taylor of old bond street shaving cream is very important.

      1. I have been on the hunt for the best shaving cream for some time now and I have settled on Taylor of Old Bond Street (Black/sensitive) packaging. I don’t know what more you could possibly want. “It’s a little slice of heaven!”

        1. Hi Fred,

          I completely agree! I am currently using it as well. I have always had sensitive acne prone skin and this shaving cream does the trick. Great lubricating shave with no irritation or breakouts. Thanks for sharing!


      2. This site inspired me to start wet shaving. And now I am getting my friends involved too! I’ve been trying all sorts of creams, soaps, and razors and the premium stuff is just that for a reason. T & H need a review on here? Keep up the good work.
