Acqua di Parma Shaving Cream Bowl, 125g

Availability: Out of stock


Acqua Di Parma Shaving Cream is worshipped for its rich, luxurious lather. The presence of Hyaluronic Acid and Eudermic oils means it does not dry the skin and prevents the appearance of redness and irritation. Only a small amount is required for each shave to produce a rich, thick lather. Best used with a shaving brush.

  • Vegetable-based Shaving Cream.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Luxuriously scented with the classic citrus and herbal aroma of Colonia.
  • Made in Italy.



Scoop out an almond-sized amount and use a shaving brush to work up a lather. Apply to beard and wait 2 minutes to allow hair to soften. Cream may also be applied directly to the face and worked into a lather using your fingers. Shave in the same direction as hair growth. Rinse with cool water.


Eudermic Oils: A Greek word meaning 'good for the skin', such oils (such as coconut) provide exceptional slick and reparative qualities to the skin.

BEST EVER!! Review by: Aaron 30/12/2018
I have so many creams and soaps it’s insane all from cheap to expensive their isn’t many I haven’t tried! This product is 100% the best product I have ever used! Performance and slickness you can’t beat scent is amazing and lather is amazing, some people say it’s expensive but I think it’s cheap for how well it performs, just remember you get what you pay for and this product I can’t rate any higher I’m so sooo impressed
Not for the every day Review by: PW 13/06/2018
This is undoubtedly a quality product. Smell is great and feel is great. I personally found it a bit hard to get quality right cream to water etc to get this to lather, but when you do its amazing. I definitely wouldn’t use this again as an every day product, I think there are a number of other creams that perform equally as well for this function. However if you want a special or occasional cream then this is exceptional.
Fine Italian Review by: Mal 28/06/2017
This is a luxury product. Scent, quality, performance and style.

Price is not a question because it will last. I pull this out for special occasions. The scent is different to an English Cream, its balanced and citrusy and you will enjoy it.

My wife likes this scent the best of all the shave creams I have (I have experimented and have about 10 at the moment). So if I'm out to impress ....
People will scoff at the price but this is brilliant. I only use it on occasions for my face but it's brilliant. Great lather from a small amount, wonderful scent and smooth on skin.
Worth the money Review by: Andrew 12/09/2016
Very high quality shave cream that allows a smooth close and burn free shave. Its expensive for a shave cream but worth the money, particularly as a little goes a long way.

Highly recommended.
Simply Amazing Review by: John 11/11/2015
Men's Biz were kind enough to give me a single portion to try a few weeks back. I gave it a go and was blown away by the shaving experience. It lathers so well, smell nice and the slickness is excellent. I use all the English greats as part of my rotation but I would say the ADP is better and worth the extra price. I have now bought two tubs as I want to ensure it's regularly part of my rotation program.
Glad I purchased it Review by: Wayne 29/10/2015
have been on the fence for over 12 months to purchase this and im glad i did..lathers up so easy ,slickness is off the charts and gives me the best post shave feel out of all my kit..just dont look at the price,but it will last a long time in a rotation.only negative is i dont detect any colonia scent,more herby,barber shop type scent..its only a negative because its in the product details,personlly i dont care as the performance makes up for it.fantastic packaging as usual the service from mens biz is impeccable..
One of the best Review by: Pjrib 6/02/2015

Excellent Review by: Aidin 16/06/2014
This cream is my favourite so far, it worth every cent and it last for a long time. Just need small amount to make perfect lather, and it smells good.
Great as always but doesn't have the same smell Review by: Sean Sydney 10/05/2014
I received my new jar of this after using up my last Jar.

I have used the Acqua Di Parma shaving cream for a few years now and have noticed the changes over the years; however, the most recent refinement has an upside and a downside.

Previously, this cream had a pretty firm texture when taking it from the bowl, pretty similar to a firm hair wax; it also had a yellowy colour and had a wonderful citrusy sharpness smell of Colonia that I would happily wear as a cologne scent.

The newest jar that I received had changed in a number of ways since my last batch, the 2 main changes were the consistency of the cream; it's now a lot less firm which makes whipping it up with brush and a bowl so much easier as it doesn't stick to the bowl as much; the downside however, is that it's lost the sharp colonia smell to make way for a cream that smells almost herby with a rounder scent which was very disappointing!

Overall, the Acqua Di Parma Shaving Cream still deserves 5/5 because it's such a good product
5 stars Review by: Tom 3/04/2014
very good
My instant favourite. Review by: Con 8/01/2013
Makes a rich and creamy full bodied lather and the scent is a knock out. Fell in love on first use.
superb Review by: simon 5/12/2012
Thick creamy consistency in the jar, small amount works up to a thick and rich lather with the wonderful smell of colonia. Excellent razor glide, leaves my skin feeling moist & well nourished after three passes. The beautiful smell of colonia remains after the shave is done. Perfect!
Perfect except for the price Review by: canook 26/10/2012
This is one of those little luxuries you need to try at least once, but the price will ensure it is never an every day cream.

It does give one of the best shaves you'll ever have - beautiful lather and great on the skin. You need only the tiniest amount - I used about half of what I use for TOBS and still had enough for another pass or two.

There are other premium creams that give you as good a shave at a lower price, I can't deny that. (Castle Forbes comes to mind)

I don't usually go for cologne scents, but the ADP scent is so delicate and refined that I can't fault it.
Worth the money Review by: Asaf 11/12/2011
Great smell, lather and performance, this is the rolls royce. Anyone who enjoys wet shaving then owes it to himself to try this wonderful product.
Great cream but..... Review by: Craig 12/04/2011
I was lucky enough to grab this at 30% off the other week. It is true that this is a fantastic cream/soap but it doesn't come imbued with magical properties as others would have you believe. The scent is old world era Tabac, but replace the smokey musk of Tabac with citrus/pine.
At this price point, I wanted to feel as if a higher power was guiding my hand for the best shave of my life - but that obviously didn't happen. It definitely gives the most moisturising lather out of all my kit, but it's not that much better than my other favourites, Cella & Speick, in terms of getting a great shave.
People owe it to themselves to try this product, but it wont make up for poor prep or sloppy technique.
You've tried the rest, now try the best! Review by: Ian 8/03/2011
This is hands-down the best shave cream/soap I've ever used. It lathers up very easily (very Tabac-like), has a rich, creamy, protective lather that is as good (if not better) than the 3 T's. I'm also absolutely in love with the Colonia fragrance - a refined, masculine fragrance that is not overpowering. May seem expensive but if you're passionate about your shaving then getting this is a no-brainer!
