We worked very hard to get the right mix of scent - not too much, not too little, we think we've got it just right.
The shaving cream benefits from lots of skin loving ingredients including shea butter and bay leaf oil which will leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised. The inclusion of glycerin is to deliver cushioning and lubrication so your razor glides over the surface of the skin without ever digging in.
150ml screw top tub with aluminium lined lid and PET black plastic recyclable and reusable container.
The cream is a natural off white colour due to the inclusion of real bay leaf oil, we do not use artificial colourants in our creams. Keep away from direct sunlight and store in a cool place.
HOW TO USE
For best results, we suggest plopping a baked bean sized amount of our cream into a shallow bowl and with a slightly wet shaving brush, whip the cream into a rich, creamy texture. When the brush is loaded with lather, paint it into your beard bristles and shave as normal.
Great Scent and lathered up beautifully using very little product. The lather is really slick and left the face feeling good too. Brian also recommended Personna blades for the new razor I picked up today so I dashed home and used the products and had a great shave. I have only been DE shaving for about two months and good some great tips and some tester products. The Bay Rum Shaving Cream is a great product and I highly recommend it, I look forward to visiting again
When I saw that Executive Shaving had brought out a new shaving cream I thought that the previous product couldn't be beaten, I was wrong! As soon as you open the lid the aroma snacks the senses straight away and even my wife said that it smelt very manly (in a good way!). A little goes a long way with this cream and combined with a little water, it lathers up superbly and works fantastically with the Executive Shaving Pre-Oil. When I finish off my shave, I also shave my head and I use whatever cream is left in the bowl and the blade glides across my face and dome beautifully without any razor irritation. I would most definitely recommend this product to any man to add to his shaving kit and I would go as far to say that for me it's product of the year (already!!).

I love this cream, the scent is amazing I didn't think it was something I would like but when lathered up I loved the spicy Bay Rum scent and wonderfully rich lather.
Excellent product, lovely aroma making shaving a pleasure and a pea size amount does the job, great value.
I wasn't sure about the scent when I first tried it, however it has definitely grown on me now. Bay Rum Shaving Cream produces a terrific lather and helps give a great shave
Ok the load down, excellent product, I have tried this against other creams and soaps, it lathers very well - no dry face after just smooth comfortable skin - a cool tea tree menthol feeling to the skin. Used with both straight razor it stays wet whilst working for a long time and easy to apply for second pass with lots of life left in it, for the safety razor its a dream. No doubt will be buying this product again. Love the smell post shave its addictive - thank you. Service for delivery from the company very prompt.

I have used this for my last two shaves and I am very favourably impressed. I found it lathered up very well into a nice cream, gave a fantastic shave on both occasions and the scent was very pleasant and not overbearing. So another winner from your own "stable".
I like a lot the scent because is not so aggressive as other similar products that I used in the past, because you realize that is natural and not artificial. Another outstanding product from Executive Shaving!
Great shaving cream and scent, good slickness after a 3 pass shave, and a nice post shave feel afterwards. Goes well with my gillette silver blue. Finished of with executive shaving aftershave balm.
This is a great cream. I really like the bay rum scent and was glad to see Executive Shaving with their own stuff! It's the same great quality as you would expect from any Executive Shaving product and the strength of the scent is just right, very smooth shave.
Having read a lot about this long awaited shaving cream & getting a trial sample, thanks shauna i decided to give this cream what i would call the ultimate test. I started with seven days growth using my Gillette 16 with a new Wilkinson Sword blade & my trusty Thiers Issard super badger hair brush, lather up straight to the face, none of this lathering bowl nonsense & i found this to give me a quality shave, finish off with Tabac cologne. What a shave. Brian, i reckon you're on a winner with this one & worth the wait, definitely.
This cream is absolutely superb. The scent is completely different to anything else I've had but it grows on you quickly and I really like it. It lathers up very easily and works a treat with my Claymore razor with no irritation afterwards, the lubrication is excellent. As with the ESC Natural Shaving Cream a little goes a long way so good value for money too. Great advice and service from Brian & the team as always. Well done, an outstanding shaving cream.
This is an excellent cream which does several things. Yes it smells great, yes it has a slightly analgesic effect which helps but because it lubricates so well it seems to make the whole process a bit quicker too. For hard water areas remember to use a little more than instructed.
Item arrived in good time. It cost less than the competition, the consistency is just right for me and it is now my shaving cream of choice.
In a word, EXCELLENT!! I have been using ESC products for a while now and absolutely love the quality that they give me, and this ESC Bay Rum cream is no exception. An absolute gem of an addition to my supply of ESC products. I was amazed at just how much rich lather it whipped up. It gives so much protection and slickness that it is up there with the best of them. I have really great shaves with this cream. ESC Bay Rum has a really unusual subtle scent about it that you will love. Once again, Brian and the team have put together an absolute gem. This cream is of superb quality and on my shopping list on every order. Don't hesitate to try it. If you know how good ESC products are, you will not be disappointed with this Bay Rum cream, it is absolutely first class.
This is now my go to shaving cream. I have possibly tried over one hundred different ones...ones that have cost much more than Bay Rum but this is now the one for me. Lovely smell really thick lather.... My straight razors glide though it. I just love it. 😊

I am exceedingly pleased with my shave. The Bay Rum cream is very soothing to the skin and provided an excellent lather. I am someone who has sensitive skin so finding a cream that soothes as well as provides a good clean shave is an added bonus. The cream lathers very well, and only a little is indeed required which is added value for money! All in all, I found the cream to give a most enjoyable shave, both in feel and scent. My one suggestion would be only for the cream to smell perhaps more strongly of the bay leaf as it is such a pleasant fragrance, this is by no means a reflection on the cream more a personal preference.

Not my favourite scent but i have shaved with cream with my new rockwell 6s. Here are my remarks. Scale from 1 to 5. Slickness 5 Post shave 4 No face burning
Another winner from Executive Shaving. Lots of lather from not a lot of product and whips up a treat in no time at all. The slickness is first rate as is the cushioning. The Bay Rum scent is spot on with this cream. Thankfully not overpowering or synthetic like some other Bay Rum scents can be and it lingers right until the very end of your shave. All in all, I can thoroughly recommend this for your shaving cream/soap rotation.

As a newbie to DE shaving I've only used hard soaps and struggled to get a good lather, tonight I had lather overflowing my shaving bowl. Really liked the aroma, to me smells slightly of cloves, but really is pleasant! The lather gave good glide.
Got sent this as a small tester and i was very pleased with it. The scent was amazing and it produced an incredible lather. The scent of the product lasted long after i shaved! Brilliant product.
I was sent a sample of this cream with my last order,it's superb,great scent,lathers up perfectly,will definately be in my next order.
Brilliant product. Lovely scent. Top notch. Topped of with pinaud clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum Aftershve. Absolutely brilliant.
Absolutely first class shaving cream. Gives a really close, comfortable shave. Great creamy consistency. Even beats Castle Forbes!
