    Great cream I tried first in July while on vacation overseas. La Toja soaps are finding great popularity on the forums but I don't read about the creams that often, there is a classic and sensitive version. This review is of the classic which has impressed me.

    Ease of Lathering- Very easy to lather , whats produced is a slick, rich, creamy, dense, cushiony lather , makes me think one word, luxurious .

    General Skincare- Excellent, seems to provide great skin protection and feels moisturizing. Compared to some of my other creams La Toja performance is notably different. Seems to promote a shave thats less prone to irritation and close .

    Scent- A mild cologne scent, slightly woodsy , slightly spicy, a muted masculine outdoor scent .

    Price- I bought my tubes overseas for $3. However here in the States shaving vendors are carrying the big 5.3 oz tube for $9-$12 which is a real bargain for what seems like a cream that can stand along side Proraso and Musgo Real as an inexpenive quality Old World product.

    I've never tried the cream but the stick is awesome.

    I am supposing there is little difference between the shave stick and classic cream , there packaging is very similar.

    I have both - I actually enjoy the stick more although I think the cream is pretty good also.

    Hanzo, I reckon you should pick up some more of the sticks next time. In Spain they are a €1 each.

    I am a bigger fan of creams than sticks. I picked up 3 tubes of the cream for $2.50 a tube so I am okay for awhile. I enjoy this cream a lot . Even supermarket or toiletry store level products in Spain or Italy represent high quality imports to American wetshavers.

    If it wasn't for Procter & Gamble we too would have decently priced, high quality product unfortunately we really only have VDH and Aqua Velva haha....

    Another thread resurrected.....

    I really like the La Toja Stick. I found the La Toja Cream on sale for $6.99/150ml tube and decided to try it. It is one of the best creams I have used. It lathers easily and produces a nice thick lather that provides great glide as Honzo stated.

    Bobcat, can you compare the cream with the stick? I enjoy the stick very much, and if the performance of the cream is equally good, I need to get me some.

    For me, it is a coin toss. Both work differently but also do a great job. Cream at home, stick on the road. I was very impressed with the cream. I think you will like it.

    Couldn't agree more with all the above. I got a tube of it from my secret Santa this year and it's one of my favorite creams to use! I to also have a shave stick I have had for a while. Anyone that hasn't ever tried la toja, you should!
