post #91 of 176
Proraso from Italy ist quite nice. I've been using their shaving soaps and creams for over a year now and they are truely awesome. Haslinger and Muehle (Austria/Germany) are pretty good, too and really cheap to buy (at least here in Germany...)

I've left him there as a reminder to keep it real, just like Wayne Newton Himself.

Proraso is great, as is Prep. I've got a few tubs of Prep and it is great stuff.

I have to concur with the King of Shaves fans. Have it and it works great. I find one of the biggest advantages it has, is that it is clear. Seeing what you are shaving is a highly under-rated factor.

Since I have sensitive skin, I have been using Spectro Jel to clean my face for years (I highly recommend not using soup on your face). I experimented using it one day as a shaving gel (as it is also clear), and what'ya know...it works fantastic. Now I have more room in the medicine cabinet!!

This all depends on you type of facial hair of course...might not be so great for those "swarthy" types (personally, I could shave with a bus ticket).

I'm a fan of the Clarins shaving foam, its a step up from the drugstore stuff, but a little cheaper than some of the high end brands like TF&H and Acqua di Parma and does a really great job.

I'll second Kiss My Face. The drug store brands don't lubricate enough and the higher-end stuff I try often gums up the razors. So I get KMF unscented and it lasts me almost the year.

I am a big fan of shaving oil, Shave Deluxe, out of Texas, which I like better than King of Shaves or the British brands.

I have changed my mind....I am back to AOS. Parma reminded me of an old man...had to make a move away from that.

I have a shaving cream by Kiehls that I like a lot.

Lately I've been using Nancy Boy shaving cream. It moisturizes REALLY well and its brushless. My only complaint would be the smell (cucumber). The other shaving cream I have at the moment is Taylors Avocado. It's nice but I usually end up using Nancy Boy. Once I run out of both I'll try out Proraso and T&H but that won't be for awhile.

I agree - it does remind an old-type scent. That was the intention.

I love the scent but have found better-performing soaps

im using nivea concentrated cream that I got while I was in the middle east. I like having to use a brush and warm water to make a nice thick cream on my face, very old school. My dad uses the same type from Old Spice and i liked watching him shave as a kid. Nivea doesnt have a scent like old spice does though. In previously I've used the shaving cream from BodyShop. Pretty good but I stopped because they are sexist... they will accept empty containers for womens' creams and lotions for refills but not for the mens' line. The lady at the store was willing to accept my empty container but wasnt going to give any discount for recycling...

I remember reading a rather surprising report in the late 70's about the best product to use for a close shave.

After numerous studies and polls - the conclusion was, that of all things,

Butter - gives one the closest shave.

I'm not sure it has a nice scent though.

kiehl's shaving products work well for me

I'm a huge fan of the LAB Series for Men, shave cream. Don't remember the exact name of it, but it comes in a 4"x4" plastic cylinder. It is phenomenal. I have sensitive, though not overly sensitive, skin and it does wonders for me. I can't use regular shave cream without irritation, but this stuff is almost magical, it numbs my face a little, and the residue washes off easily.
