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

    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.

    Coconut oil from Trumpers. Keeps the skin moist and smooth.

    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?

    What about Nivea? It's available in many grocery and drug stores in the USA, and given that it's made in Germany, it comes with German engineering built in. ;-)

    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.

    I got a clinique shaving pack for christmas and it's been good. Although I had only used cheap(er) stuff before that, so I can't compare to a lot of stuff in here.

    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.


    [​IMG] god does Wars take me back to traveling through Eastern europe in the 80s, I remember one other of the same family called "Brutal."

    As for current shaving cream, I'm fascinated by Art Of Shaving Lavender. Makes me looking for a complementing Lavender note cologne...

    Jack Black, available at Sephora. I have sensitive skin and this really minimizes razor burn / redness, even used sparingly (one tube lasted seven months).

    1) Art of Shaving
    2) L'Occitane shaving soap
    3) Prorasso (has been sold at Bath-Body Works)--not quite as good as above (I hate getting it from tube into shave brush.

    Each of these can be metered for the cost-conscious. Standard sizes seem to last anywhere from 2-6 mos, depending on who is using/frequency of shave, etc.

    The AOS oil, and aftershave balm, which I apply as needed (I.e., after roughing it for 3 day weekend) will last a long time each.

    I've tried a lot of different products...high end to drugstore. I've got very sensitive skin and I have yet to find a shaving cream better than Nivea for Men - Sensitive Skin.

    After a while, many shave-cream scents start to leave me cold, so I tend to rotate through. I just took a break from Musgo Real, which I liked, and am now using Geo. F. Trumper's "rose" scent. It's quaintly retro -- makes me feel all Victorian.

    Have you been drinking again? [​IMG] I only ask because you're screaming and you smell like Miller Light.

    How the heck do you get it to last 7 months? Maybe I should be using a lot less then.
