Our Verdict on the Taylor of Old Bond Street Cream


From the leading London shaving brand, that online buyers prefer.


Buyers say that you get a rich creamy lather, that is easy to create.


Almost every buyer said this cream was great value for money.

Overall rating :  4.7 / 5

If you haven't used a product made by this company, then we have no hesitation in recommending that you give one a whirl.

This one comes in a nice bowl and as you can see gets excellent reviews from buyers.

Most people will simply apply this cream by hand, but we recommend that you lather it up with a good quality shaving brush, for even better results.

This type of cream can be used for all forms of wet shaving including, safety razors, cutthroats, disposable, cartridge and wet and dry electric shavers. Like any good quality shaving cream, you do not need a great amount of this to make a great lather.

Application by Hand

People often ask if a shaving cream like this should be applied by hand or by brush. Applying it using your hands works perfectly fine. Wet your hands and then take a small amount of the cream and rub it in your hands. 

A lather will build up which you can then apply to your face. Start with just a small amount of cream and add more if required.

Application by Brush

We would recommend this method for two reasons:

  1. You do get a better lather
  2. Your cream will last a great deal longer

All you need is a well soaked shaving brush and a small pea size amount of cream. Get a shaving bowl or mug and then use the cream and brush to mix up a great lather.
