Cella Crema da Barba All'Olio Di Mandorla: Review

Cella Crema da Barba All'Olio Di Mandorla

Italian shave soaps have been popular among wet shavers for many years.  They tend to straddle the line between shaving soaps and shaving creams because they contain soap ingredients, but most are soft and putty-like in texture similar to thick creams eg Acqua Di Parma. Recently I tried Cella Crema da Barba All’Olio Di Mandorla, which is another well-regarded example of these classic Italian products.  


This is blog is dedicated to the world of wet shaving, primarily with double edged razors, and men's grooming. Years ago, I found shaving a real chore, in fact, I detested it. I could never really work out why, but shaving to me was an uncomfortable and at times painful experience.

I started to reflect on the millions of men that shaved well before my time and wondered how they got by with a minimum of fuss. Given the technology and advances in material science it was inconceivable that any man should experience anything other than a great, seem-less, smooth and painless shave. I took a good long hard look at my technique and tried to evaluate why shaving was an unpleasant experience.
