Many here may have tried the La Toja shave stick. However, the La Toja Classic Shave Cream doesn’t seem to get the attention that it deserves on this board, so I thought that I’d supply a quick review to bring some attention to this fine product. Performance – At 150 ml (5.1 oz.), this is a large tube of shaving cream; and for about $10/tube in the USA, La Toja Classic is an outright bargain. This cream lathers like crazy; to the point where an almond-sized snurdle whipped up with my Vulfix badger overflowed my bowl with luxurious lather in less than 30 seconds work. The total volume of lather was easily enough to last 4 passes. La Toja Classic seems to tolerate a fair amount of water, however I did purposely push it over the top during one session, breaking it down to a soapy mess, so just be sure to add water a little at a time while building your lather. A proper build results in a lather that has an excellent balance of cushion and slickness, yet provides plenty of room for adjustment to your personal preferences. I’ve used this cream for about 6 – 8 shaves now, achieving a smooth, irritation-free shave each time. The cream leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and exceptionally well moisturized. The scent is definitely masculine, although a little difficult to describe. To my untrained nose I’d say it’s mostly pipe tobacco and leather top notes, supported by spice and woodsy notes below. It is manly, but natural and classic. Overall, it is quite nice but doesn’t linger long after the shave. It’s largely agreed that all scents are subjective by nature, so YMMV. Ratings – Price: 10 Cushion: 10 Slickness: 9 Scent: 8 Moisturizing: 8 Overall: 9 The La Toja Classic Shave Cream is one of the best software values that I’ve found in wet shaving to date. It’s already earned a permanent place in my shave den. I will definitely buy it again.
