I couldn't help myself but mention the 'Organic-Natural' part in the title, because it's mentioned a number of times on the back of the container. For me personally, I don't care, I just see it as new-age marketing buzz words. Anyways, how about the actual shaving cream? Well first, I'd like to mention that the product actually came in a 180g container and not a 150g container as the description and the photo on the site would suggest. In other words, you're actually getting more product for your money, or about 13.3 cents per gram. Which is exactly the same cost ratio for the Old Taylor Of Bond Street creams. Since I'm on the topic of the container, I'd like to also mention that I liked the presentation of it, it's metal, has a nice grip screw top, and it's heavy because it's a decent size. The scent is what I would call a sweet-minty-lime, it's pretty nice. I don't think lime is my first choice when it comes to scents, but this one is nice and not overly powering, I can only compare the scent to the other lime one I have which is the GEO Trumper's Lime shave cream, and I think Evaldo is better, more refined perhaps? As for the soap and the lather; I'd say the lather is as good as the other top brands, ie the two others I've mentioned so far, but it's a bit harder to get that lather going, maybe it's the Organic-Natural-Hippy-Dippy-Tree-Hugging ingredients? I'm kidding of course, but seriously the lather requires a little more effort, but once it's there I'd say it's as thick and as protecting as Old Taylor Of Bond. I would definitely recommend Evaldo, especially if you're an environmentally concerned shaver.
Both of these have very pleasing aroma's for me. They also perform well for me as well. Glad I made the purchase and will look for other scents for future purchases.
The Elvado lime is a soft soap. It builds a thick lather and quickly. The metal tin is the only downside, soap gets stuck in the threads and it rusts if wet. I would suggest not lathering in the tin but rather a bowl.
The shaving creme is aweosome!! The smell is amazing and it makes a good lather! All around a great product!
Only tried once so far, what I can say is the smell is great. The actual cream is a lot harder than what I am used to for creams and I did not get the best lather. That said, I think that's my fault and will be trying loading a stiffer boar brush and doing a face lather instead which i think will work much better next time it makes its way into the rotation.
