Apothecary 87 Shave Cream Review


Along with all the other products Apothecary sent they included this shave Cream. Now I have used foams from cans, soaps from a puck but this is the first actual shave cream that I have used, and spoiler I’m a fan.


This shave cream comes in a box with the same layout as the other products have. The front has product name sides have an image and the back includes the instructions and ingredients list. Once you open it up and take the container out you will find a wide plastic container with a tin lid. The container size comes in at 3.38 fl oz.


Like the mustache wax, this is the 1893 scent. Named after the first dedicated Barbor school this has a scent of vanilla and sandalwood. Like the wax its a strong scent, however, being a shaving cream that’s not a negative to this product. It will definitely fill your bathroom with the great 1893 scent that will make your shave that much more enjoyable.


I have to say that I didn’t pay much attention to the fact this was cream and not a soap. This is indeed a soft cream, I’d say it is a little stiffer of cream then what your typical locations are.

My Experience:

I found out very quickly that it doesn’t take much of this on the very tips of the shaving brush to get enough for 2 applications for a shave. there were a few times where I accidentally got to much on the brush and ended up with enough for another 2 full shaves and it was sad having to rinse it down the drain. I found it to lather fairly easy In a bowl or directly on the face. Even though its a cream it did require a fairly damp shave brush or it would dry up and get too tacky while making it into a lather. I really did enjoy the great scent of 1893.



I enjoyed this Shave Cream and would definitely pay the $12-$15 USD (at time of review).  This may be one of the products you want to order from there site as it is lower there than at the link below.
