Best Shaving Cream??

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
After having tried Musgo Real, Proraso, and Trumper's (Limes Scent), I've settled on Musgo Real which I've found gives me the best, closest shave (as an added bonus I love the scent as well). Are there are 'hidden gems' that I am missing and should definitely give a shot? Thanks, Panzer

Dunno about hidden gems. I've generally used Taylors' Sandalwood shaving cream and shaving soap. Also DR Harris "Arlington" lime-scented cream. They work fine for me. Wanna go out on a limb and try the Creed shaving creams that are $60 at Ben Silver and report back to us?

60 bucks. - expensive, even for Creed. Does Creed have a history of making men's products? Panzer

Well, they've made men's perfumes for donkey's years. They offer some associated products like deodorant, soap and shaving soap. It appears to come in a wooden bowl -- you know how expensive that wood's getting these days. Do it, do it.

Nah - I've already blown away a substantial portion of this years bonus on some new suits - guess I'll just stick with Musgo Real Panzer

When you say this year, do you mean the one we get at the end of the year that we haven't received yet or the one we got at the end of last year?

I always seem to make my way back to the Art of Shaving lavendar scented, but did just pick up a jar of John Allan's Shave today.

Works different in pre-MBA Private Equity - we get paid in June with the assumption that we leave for B-School after two years. Panzer

Yep, Musgo. Just got 4-5 tubes in the mail. Should last a year or so.

i tried the cremo cream and it is an excellent product. i highly recommend it. kiehl's is excellent too and may be easier to find. both are avialable online.

What's the best unscented cream? I try to get everything unscented. I wear cologne; I don't want other scents interfering with that. I wish my hair products were unscented... Oh, and I finally started shaving with a razor yesterday. First time in my life. Don't laugh.

Kiehls' tubes are nice for travel and when you're not shaving in the shower. The old Clinique gel is great too. I've been disappointed with "The Art of Shaving" stuff. I lump Truefitt, Taylor, Harris, Trumpers, and Coates into the same "English high glycerine" category, which I like, and works well for both a brush and just with your hand. Of these, Coates seems to be the thickest and most "luxurious" if you will. If you want to save a ton of cash, and don't mind putting up with a slightly feminine scent that fades to nothing after a few apres rassage splashes of cold water, try a tube of CVS's generic facial wash. It's cheap, and has more glycerine than any of the English preparations, comes in a tube for travel, and even has triclosan, an antibacterial agent. It may not be chic or very trad, but I'm telling you it works great for a third or a quarter of the price. I discovered it when my wife was using it as a face wash and I ran out of my shaving cream. Oh btw, worst stuff ever, has to be that "Anthony Logistics" garbage, IMHO.

WHOO, you ever try "philosophy" brand shaving cream? It contained a strong anesthetic that left my cheeks feeling dead and smelled terrible. Godawful.
