Finished my Proraso Azur Lime cream and can’t really add anything to my thoughts a few posts back. Performs well, but the scent does make me wonder how they can actually put ‘Lime’ in the name. As with most creams, it lasted around 6 months of shaving solely with it every 2-3 days. Also I tend to use a little more than I need to, so it may last longer for other people, especially with the size of that bag. Not sure I’d buy it again, just because there’s already a few I prefer and want to try more out for the first time too. Anyway, next up, one I’ve wanted to try for a while:

Executive Shaving Citrus Kiss
Cream is quite gloopy in texture, like that of a cake mixture. Not a fan of the tin though and the bottom wasn’t completely flat, so I’ve already decanted it into my favourite type of cream container, the nice round screw top tubs with good grip round the lids that the likes of GFT & TOBS use. It smells nice and I’m looking forward to using it so will report back

Citrus Kiss is nice and the ESC creams perform very well.

Finished my Executive Shaving Citrus Kiss cream. Pleasant lime & lemon smell. Easy to work with due to how gloopy it is. If anything it’s slightly too much so, and it’s easy to take more than you need, which I guess is why it lasted me just 4 months, rather than the usual 5-6 months. Still, a quality cream that I would most certainly use again. Next up is this:

Piccadilly Shaving Co. Lime
Courtesy of Santa, in a nice black 180ml tub. Can’t wait to get stuck in. Another one to tick off the list. Also featured is my homemade Jagermeister LED Xmas bottle.

I've just had another look at your original picture of your Citrus Kiss cream. I see what you mean by gloopy. My ESC creams look different to that. I think you'll find your next one will be less gloopy - more akin to your new PSC one. I got some St James of London creams for Christmas that I'm looking forward to trying. Same consistency and glass jar as my ESC creams. I suspect they're both made by Creighton but this is no bad thing.

I'd agree about Creightons - apart from anything else, there aren't that many British companies with the capacity to turn out that amount of shaving products. They used to sell the St James range on their own website but that hasn't been the case for some time. They still have the T&H no.10 line listed which they also produce. I've not doubt they make a lot of other stuff that they aren't allowed to admit to. I.
