What I look for in a Shaving Cream on Amazon:
1). Price: Serious. What the heck am I going to spend a whole bunch of money for on something like shaving cream? I can suffer through a shave if necessary and if I’m going to save a couple of bucks in the process.
2). Scent: I like a nice, gentle, clean scent. One that takes me back to the high school barber shop. You know the smell, a little bit of cleaning alcohol. I don’t want to have perfume on my face.
3). Foamy and Soft: Yeah, call me a girl. I like the touch of soft and foamy shaving cream. It just feels good. Don’t like gels for this reason.
4). A can that doesn’t run out of gas: You know what I mean. The can that just runs out of air and doesn’t have the compression to get the cream out.
5). That’s about all: I can’t really think of anything else. So, let me rank a couple of the shaving creams on Amazon that I endorse, and a couple that I would steer clear from:
Barbasol – Original: Thick and Rich
I love Barbasol original. I have left and come back to it numerous times and I am never leaving again. It’s like the “Don’t cry for me Argentina Song.”
The Answer is I never left you
Why Do I like Barbasol Original?
1). It’s a high powered machine. The pressure is great. You won’t run out of pressure until you run out of cream.
2). It comes out soft and foamy. Just like I love it. Feels like some clouds on your hand.
3). Man I”m an ugly bastard. Oh well. This cream just rubs perfectly on. It has the barber shop smell that is not overwhelming.
4). A nice sensitive shave for a coarse beard:
5). It’s cheap. A couple of cans for $8.00.
Gillette Foamy Shave Cream for Sensitive Skin
Gillettte foamy is Cheap too. This stuff smells spicy. Someone on Amazon said it smells like Christmas. I trust these reviews, I’ve been through them all. None of them look paid for reviewers. Check out all the Amazon Reviews here
Edge Shave Gel for Men Sensitive Skin
Ok. Fine. I’ll throw a gel shaving cream in here. Might as well. It’s good. It’s probably the best gel shaving cream on the market. This can holds it pressure which removes a lot of frustration. The gel itself isn’t highly perfumed, so it won’t blow you away with crazy smells. Nice option here for people that have to go with gel.
Some that I do not like:
The Gillette Series Shave Gel With Aloe
Here are the issues:
1). The can itself isn’t good. Sometimes when you press on the release, it just spits out gas without cream. So the pressure runs out before the gel;
2). The gel is thick and clogs the drains;
3). Some of these reviews seem a little biased to me. Some say “I got a can for free for an unbiased review”
Gillette Fusion Proglide Sensitive Shave Gel
Here are the issues:
1). Dysfunctional dispenser;
2). That’s about all. The gel itself is ok. I prefer foam not gel.
