As long as it doesn't arrive with a kack-shaped imprint, yes please.

And you don't need to thank me or anything, just like you didn't when you got those pants from me.

Do I need to re-send the PM AND text message that both contained "thanks ed"?

I forgot, that was the PM where you made a fat joke about the forum member that always posts in the CEsspool, argues with you, and that you think is obese and a tool. Now I remember.

Also, please stop calling me "mate" in your texts, coming from you it sounds like a verb.

I admit I have not read all the posts, but I searched and didn't find anything about Grooming Lounge's Beard Destroyer. New York Magazine best shaving lotion... http://nymag.com/shopping/features/46622/

I haven't read all the posts either, but I thought I'd chime in on something I happened upon recently. The Youtube shave guru (I can't recall his name) has always mentioned Crabtree & Evelyn. I happened upon their Sienna shave cream at their outlet store in Austin for all of $3.

Best shaving buy in my opinion. Period. It is more than ample as a slick shave cream and the scent is really something to behold.

i have just joined so i can contribute to this particular thread!
i'm in the uk and this site seems to have uk contributers as well as (majority) usa posters. is there a good uk- based site i should know about?!

i've put a couple of questions at the end - can you help,please?

on shaving - i use creams only - no brushes for me. i have, however, tested many many shaving creams so here goes:-

i notice no-one describes that their beard growth is 'like'. surely, that's a crucial bit of info. my growth is pretty dark (for a blond guy), pretty stiff and grows quite quickly (certainly need to shave each day).

Floris JF. i have seen some posts about this product (and santal). it doesn't really feature on the retail website reviews and i don;t know why. JF is, i think, a superb product. it provides me with a good smooth shave. it does not clog the razor. it lubricates very well and washes off cleanly. this is one of the best products i have found. i have just discovered, however, that it contains various sorts of parabens - evil chemicals that are probably pretty harmful to humans. i am really annoyed with floris for putting this junk in an otherwise great product. if you don;t mind about the chemicals i would very strongly recommend this product.

crabtree and evelyn. i have not seen this line reviewed anywhere. it's very good. the sandlewood and the goats milk versions are ones i use when i run out of floris. product produces a good lather leading to a pretty smooth shave and i have no irritation. some ppl i know say the sandlewood has a little perfume to it that can irritate but i don't find tht happens to me even tho i have sensitive skin. highly recommended altho i'm not sure about availibility in the usa. i use these products when i've run out of flois or just fancy a change.

l'occitaine cade. this is a good product and is probably on a par with crabtree's shaving creams. i rather like the lavender scent but it may not appeal to all.

clinique cream (not the gel). on a light beard growth i think this would be a very good product as it leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised. it lets the razor get close to the skin. but- it's not man enough for heavier growths. i use it but only on the odd day here and there.

Zirh. this looks great and zirh have many good proucts. in my view this is not one of them. it does not give a clean close shave.it also clogs somewhat.

if asked i would rank the products in the order they appear above.

if you have got this far- thanks!! now i have a couple of questions...

has anyone tried "men-u shave creme". i have read good reports but....

what are the other options - i'm not fussed about an organic product etc but i do want to avoid parabens. many posters on this thread recommend Taylors of Old Bond Street. is that a good call?

hope some of that helps and thanks for reading

I know this is not exactly what OP asked, but Kiss My Face shaving creams are the best bang for your buck IMO. Very cheap, and if you use a brush you can get a really really good lather out of it. Years ago when I got into the wetshaving game, I went a little nuts and bought quite a bit of soaps and creams. Once those run out I plan on replacing them with KMF and just sticking with that. (I probably still have 6 months to a year of soaps and cream left though!)

I've not tried the Floris line, but C&E's Sweet Almond Oil cream is fantastic, if you can find it. Their Sienna soap is quite good as well. The L'occitane Cade hard soap is likewise a winner, when you can find it.

pgs - if you've not tried the Salter's line of shaving creams, I can highly recommend them. I like them better than Trumpers.

C&E Sandalwood
Trumper's Coconut and Trumper's Violet
Taylor of Old Bond Street Rose and Taylor of Old Bond Street Almond

These are truly great.

After using AoS lavender oil + cream + balm for the last week, I've decided to go back to my trusty King of Shaves gel. Nothing beats that stuff for stopping razorburn.

I bought some shaving cream from the Farmacia Santa Maria Novella whatever it is in Rome and I'm looking forward to using it.

As an aside, I've never gotten used to shaving oil and so threw out a half bottle recently.
