Trumpers offer their shaving creams in a practical travel tube.

You can write (email) Geo F Trumper and Truefitt & Hill requesting samples. They will both send you very generous sample packages, with reusable vials you can put your cream in to travel with.

I'm gonna swear by Truefit and Hill. I've used Trumper, Khiels, Anthony's Logisics, and art of shaving and its by far the best shave i've had. They do an unscented now. My only complaint is that the Aftershaves aren't the best when it comes to the scented (only spot where art of shaving has them beat, they are #2 imo). I do like the unscented though and find it better than art of shaving. Haven't tried anyones brush but T&H.

No Aiwass....they were free when I got them. But now I hear they charge around 6 dollars for shipping and handling, sorry.

A lot of people think this, but with a proper brush one tub of this stuff (along with nearly all high end creams/soaps) will last you 4-5 times as long as a can of drugstore gel. It might be marginally more expensive, but is an extra dollar or two over 6 months that big of a deal?

AOS is pretty expensive for what you get imo. Especially when... Costs 13.50 for a 5.3 oz jar, and is much better And although its 25 bucks for a 7 oz jar of GFT Violet....it's still a must have.

+ 1 Geo F Trumper,

it is actually cheaper than supermarket sahving gels and creams. With the badger brush and proper tehniques it will last much longer.

I use classic barbasol with a hot lather machine.

I've got sensitive skin. Art of Shaving works best for my face. And yes, I've tried a lot of different inexpensive & expensive shaving creams/soaps to get to that conclusion.

Yes they are worth it, I use Taylor's of Old Bond Street. Oil, soap, badger brush the whole deal!

Merkur Vision and a Feather Blade, T&H 1085 with a Pure Badger Brush, and some AOS Pre-shave oil does the trick for me Topped off with some Aqua Velva.

I tossed the Mach3 about 3 years ago and never looked back..

Yeah, I have to say if you're gonna get good shaving lubricant, in my opinion (and a lot of people really into shaving) it's the 3 T's for soaps (Trumpers, Truefitt & Hill or Taylor of Old Bond Street). For creams, either Musgo Real, Ingram or Prosaro. You can't go wrong with those. Of course there is some wiggle room. There's a lady in West Virginia who hand makes shaving soaps. I get my batch from her. Of course you'll need a badger brush. I preferred silver-tipped over pure though.

Art of Shaving creams are just Taylors of Old Bond Street with a different label and a big price increase.
