Best shaving cream - Page 3

post #31 of 176
Proraso is also a winner, but today I used Wars - a cheap cream from Poland that performs far better than its price would indicate. I had forgotten how good this stuff is.

Bath and Body Works carries Proraso under the C.O. Bigelow line.

+1000 for Proraso

That stuff is incredible, and cheap too! I actually like the smell of it. Sure, it's a little drying in the winter, but followed by a good balm, it can't be beat.

I'm noticing there isn't much love being shown for Taylor's Avacado. That stuff is great as well. A lot of moisture so it's perfect for winter.

Taylors advocado a definite must. Also try Floris,just go to their website and you can request samples as well.

I really love my Toms Best natural stuff. The thing is, to get the most of it you need the brush and bowl to whip up a great lather (it's not pressurized canned crap but comes in a metal toothbrush paste esque tube).

However, in terms of lubrication and how soothing it is, I've not experienced anything that compares.

If you're interested in some reviews from serious shavers, you can read up here and see what people who take this kind of thing pretty seriously think.

I actually don't like taylors avocado, it lathers fine but the scent doesn't really do much.

B&B is to shaving what SF is to dressing. Great bunch of folks there.

Floris of London Santal shaving cream is simply marvellous for these cold winter days... Exceptionally moisturising and the scent is heavenly.

T&H Ultimate Comfort

Although I find I actually prefer a shaving gel (not the aerosol kind) most of the time for convenience.

TF&H, Taylor of Old Bond Street and Proraso. All are good. I like Proraso (cheap but hard to find) because it gives me an excuse to run into the little Italian grocery store by my school and get some awesome prosciutto.

More for less than Truefitt, which I found too stung a little but the aftershave blams are excellent.

I am interested in purchasing Trumpers Coconut. Does anyone carry their product in the SF Bay Area? Do any of the big department stores carry it?

Tried it. It worked really bad for me, I shaved after a shower to make sur my facial hair was soft, and did use a new blade. However, I got razor burns and scratches from using this product.

I now use Neutrogena Shave Cream that does a better job for me. A bit expensive, but worth it.
