A great variety of shaving

Luxury Shaving Cream Sample Pack.A great variety of shaving creams. I really enjoyed the castle forbes lavender and was impressed with the colonialo, super slick.

A Great Way To Start

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Sample Pack A great way for a newbee to sort through the many choices offered by Taylor. Plenty of different scented creams to try. Though this product is probably not intended to be a "great value", ultimately it may work out as you can sample the different creams before purchasing a regular sized product(s). I enjoyed sampling the many different creams, all of which performed well--thick lather, good lubrication, and wonderfully scented (except, of course, for "Natural").

A great way to start!

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Sample Pack I am just shaking my head over some of these reviews complaining about small samples, expensive cost, and hard to open containers! Man up already! These are excellent and ample SAMPLES of a wide variety of creams that you would pay a fortune on to try all of them in the commercial sizes. As a newbie, this is a terrific way to go through the many creams out there without building up a closet full of unliked creams! Stop complaining about how much it costs! You try to put all these samples together and label them in an economical way and still try to make a profit. I personally want to thank you for all of these sample packets and the effort you are going through to allow us the opportunity to try so many different creams. The first thing I did was to organize all the creams into my preferences from best to worse. That alone was worth the price! Now on to trying them all!



As for the complainer - maybe you should stick with your Mach 3 and Barbasol cream.

Citrus Shaving Cream Sample Pack I wanted to try out a few different citrus creams, but didn't want to buy a whole tin blindly. I found a couple that I really like, and will order larger sizes when I run out of my current rotation.

Luxury Shaving Cream Sample Pack A great way to sample some fancy creams. All of them shave very well and it was enjoyable to experience and compare their nuances. I enjoyed all of their scents; although that is very subjective. Give these creams a test drive.

An economical way to explore

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
Barbershop Shaving Soap Sample Pack This is a good way to explore without investing in items that you discover that you don't enjoy. After sampling them, I would agree with WCS that they all fit into the "Barbershop" genre, more or less. I suppose that a few of them might be stretching the idea of a traditional barbershop fragrance, but then again barbershops serve a vast range of clients and some of them wouldn't be to your preferences. The samples are croaps so they are conducive to spreading a bit into your shaving bowl and whipping up a lather. This (incidentally) is a good way to test how well the particular brand performs off of the brush. I think WCS's estimate of 4 shaves per sample is correct, but I've been able to eek out 5 shaves by being conservative. Since this is such a economical way to sample a wide variety of labels, I will be trying some of their other sample collections on my next order. Already from this initial barbershop sample pack, I've discovered two new favorites that I will be ordering. Without the sample pack, I would not have risked the blind purchases.

Classic "Old School" scents!!!

Sandalwood Shaving Cream Sample Pack.I??ve always been a fan of old swagger and things old, classic style. There??s something about the look of an old red booth, dark rich walled , swanky speakeasy that just screams ???Classic Man!?? Where am I going this? Well, that??s how I feel about old school fragrances, and that being the scent of ???Sandalwood??. I??ve been a long time user of sandalwood products whether it be talc, lotion, body wash, or fragrance. I just recently started wet shaving and of course, I had to go with a favorite and that would be sandalwood. What better way to try out some great shave soaps then to pick out the ???Sandalwood Shaving Cream Sample Pack.?? I gotta say, although the sample size containers are small in size, you get quite a few shaves out of each container. I am on my 3rd go round through the 8 and I think I might be able to squeeze a 4th round through all of them! I have to say my favorites are 1) Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood Shaving Cream 2) Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream, Sandalwood, and 3) Proraso Shaving Cream, Sandalwood. All eight are great , but these three would definitely be a repeat buy in a larger size. I was extremely happy with the ease of buying these items and how quickly they shipped to my house. I will definitely be buying from West Coast Shaving for my shaving needs!

Geo F Trumper Shaving Cream Sample Pack "It is unfortunate to live in a world enriched with people that either lack the ability, or are simply in too much of a rush to READ & comprehend BEFORE making a purchase. I want to appologize on behalf of people everywhere to the WCS Co. for the total disregard for attention to detail. It's 100% MY opinion however, you can not make the portion size of your products any clearer. I know the WCS Co. would never say this even if they could, but people PLEASE READ before purchasing so you do not feel obliged to post a negative review regarding a product based on your own inability to comprehend what you're investing in when you make a purchase. I've read multiple negative reviews regarding these samples not being the size somebody thinks they should. They're SAMPLES! If spending $20 on a number of samples is too expensive for you, A). Buy the original size, or B). Go to West Cost Shaving co. and look at what you're buying before you purchase. Sorry for ranting!

Executive Man Sample Pack "The sample pack is a great way to try a number of different shave creams/soaps. I've been able to pick a couple favorites and rule out others. I found the sample sizes just fine - I got 4 shaves from each sample. Ultimately, I think this is a super value because it helped narrow my selection prior to a much longer term commitment.

First Purchase

Executive Man Sample Pack "It's nice to get a sample pack so that you know what's out there, but I'd recommend buying multiple sample packs and trying each one out a few times, but they are definitely too expensive. All the smells were great and interesting. Sloane had a great smell but, other than that, was pretty horrible. Make sure you have some after shave lotion or something on hand because your face will most likely be dry when you're finished. I wish I had tried the other sample packs first, however.

Fun Experience

Cons:
Best Sellers Shaving Cream Sample Pack This is a great idea. The variety of smells and consistency gives an experience that is difficult to immulate unless you were to purchase these in full volume. Trying out a new sample is something to look forward to. They each have their own characteristics that make each shaving a unique experience. You learn if you prefer a soothing aroma and texture or prefer an invigorating tingling sensation.

D.R. Harris Shaving Cream Sample Pack "Measurements don't appear to be exact so I would say most samples provide closer to 2 shaves honestly. That being said they are high quality creams and you would be hard pressed to find a more economical route to sample multiple creams. I purchased the DR Harris samples and the Geo F Trumper samples. Im glad I purchased them but probably wouldnt do it again.

Artisan Shaving Cream Sample Pack It can be hard to decide on a few soaps to use. I'm fairly new to wet shaving. It's easy to get caught up in the consumerism of this "hobby" we have. Every soap maker has tons of different soaps and we want to smell them all and use them all. Buying packs like this is better in the long run than buying full tubs of soap you may or may not like. That being said I really like almost every scent that is in this one.

Good Sampler

Pros:

Sandalwood Shaving Cream Sample Pack This is great for someone new to wet shaving. It allows you to try several different types of shaving creams, with out having to spend $10-$15 for a full tub that you may or may not like. It has helped me to find a few creams, that I enjoy while also learning which ones to avoid.

Good Sampling

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
West Coast Shaving Sample Pack This was a good sample of all 4 of their new fragrances. The quantity of lotion was also good because it allowed several uses of each after shave, in order to get a good idea of how the after shave smelled at first and over time on your skin. I also liked the fact that the lotions were in spray containers, for ease of application. Over all it was a good sampling of West Coast Shaving's products and well worth the cost, in order to avoid a blind purchase.

Good starter set

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:
Best Sellers Shaving Cream Sample Pack "Being new to shaving things that aren't Gillette and Edge gel, I ordered the starter pack of shave creams to try. Of those included, the Speick was my favorite and I've ordered a full tube. Here are my thoughts:

Speick: My favorite of the pack. Clean smelling, good for mornings. Lubrication is good, slippery enough for two passes (if back-to-back) without reapplying. I think the beeswax helps. Thick lather, but low volume (Barbisol spray foam this is not) and not too fussy about how much water I used.

Bigelow: Smells like what I remember Dial soap smelling like before they went crazy with fragrances. Good lubrication, I credit the addition of coconut oil for that. The scent is clean and refreshing, good for mornings, like when I shave.

Taylor of Old Bond St sandalwood: good slipperiness and I like the scent well enough. I thought the Speick and Bigelow better, though.

Crown: the first I tried. When I applied it thickly enough it provided decent glide. I liked others better, though.

Cyril Salter Wild Rose: the rose scent is not what I wanted to wake up to in the morning. Now, if I could get my wife to use this when she does her legs... I was also disappointed that it was "drier" than some of the others, not as slippery.

Cella (croap): I didn't like this product. It was fussy to get any lather and wasn't slippery. Perhaps I'll try a similar product again when I have more experience. I was hoping to be able to compare tallow (Cella) and glycerine (the others) based products, but not on this go-around

Out of the Ordinary Sample Pack "I like the different, out of the norm, scents of the soaps. The only real issue I am having is they are kind of hard to bloom and are very hard to load a brush with because of the container they come in. It has a very small opening. A travel brush may work better, but I do not have one. It takes a long time to get the amount of soap loaded vs the amount of water you may have in the brush or soaked up into the water during blooming. If the opening could be increased by 25%, it would be easier to get a good lather built to really get an idea of how well these soaps work.

D.R. Harris Shaving Cream Sample Pack.It's great to see their whole line, they all lather the same, whoch is to say superb. As a guy I won't use the lavender or rose (great gift for the wife). Out of all of them Arlington and the Eucalyptus were my favs. Arlington was fresh and eucalyptus was refreshing in a cold shave menthol kind of way. All in all its true what they say, none of their creams are bad. All of them are worth a try and lathe

Artisan Shaving Cream Sample Pack These are some great soaps, and I love the smell of almost all of them. It may be a bit tricky to use them because of their small size, but I just removed them from their container and put them into separate cups and loaded my brush from those. The amount of soap you get compared to the amount of money you spend isn't too great tho... but if you aren't sure what soap companies you like and don't want to go out and buy a 4oz puck its helpful.

Geo F Trumper Shaving Cream Sample Pack Very happy with this purchase. For about the price of one tube, you can sample all 9 scents. I'd say Almond & Rose might be favorites but it was fun trying them all out. Sample containers look a little different than the picture but who cares. Geo Trumper sells a sampler on their website but costs more and only available in the U.K. Highly recommend!
