Shaving Cream Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently use a Gillette Fusion Power Razor with Gillette Fusion Shaving Gel (found at any grocery/drug store) or sometimes use Barbasol (Yes, the $1 a can stuff). I have always been interested in using a bit of a high end shaving "cream", but the only shaving "cream" that I've used was a brand called Alba and it didn't lather like the Gillette or Barbasol or Edge or anything lathers and foams. Are there any shaving "creams" that lather just like a can of Edge (If so, can you reccomend one) or are they all going to be the consistency of body wash?

Use this http://www.amazon.com/Art-Shaving-Pr...8971873&sr=8-2 followed by this http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-of-Sha...8971933&sr=8-3. It is expensive, but I've never used anything (and I've tried a lot) that's given me a closer, more comfortable shave.

If you really would like to explore completely different 'universe' (and not only high-end traditional shaving creams), then try to take a closer look at "Reviews - Badger & Blade".

You shouldn't be disappointed.

Enjoy.

They will lather, but you'll need a brush to whip them up with some water. Brands I use include:

Proaso,
Salter's
Trumpers
Truefitt & Hill
Prep
WARS
Art of Shaving

You'll have to search for them, none are widely available but most can be found on-line.

Then there are the artisan lines:

St. Charles Shave
The Gentleman's Quarter
Mama Bear

And then there are the soaps

etc. etc. etc.

I like quite a few but, the one I use quite frequebtly is The Gentlemens Refinery. Great lather, stays moist troughout the entire shave! Here is a post about it!

I used Gillette Foamy shaving cream. I don't try any other brands of shaving cream.

You don't need a lather for a good shave, just a good lubricant for the blade. I heard it explained once that lather is mostly air, and air is a poor lubricant. I tried shaving oils a few times, but didn't like the effect of those on my sink. I settled on- and now order Ahava Foam Free Silk Shave (and the shower gel) by the box online.

Rex.
