I have heard the praise for the shaving soap, but how is the shavign cream ?

I may just blind both the soap and the cream anyway, but just wanted to know if anyone had tested it.......

I've read that the cream is better than the soap. I can't confirm personally. I do have the soap but I have not yet tried it so I can't even comment on that. Going from the fact TSN is heavy on "soap only" users, I imagine you will see responses as such. But I am intrigued to try the cream to be quite honest!

Claus "Nero" is correct the ABC cream I.O.M is better than the hard soap, it gives fantastic performance and a lovely Almond scent.

Scent wise on a par with Boeliss Panama 1924

I bought both Cream & Soap direct from ABC, great people to deal with although I live in the U.K shipping/postal was approx €10-11 euros. Now part of my regular rotation.

Would you go as far as saying the soap in sub par performance wise ?

Is it anything like Boellis Panama soap ?

Claus, ABCBA cream provides the best cushion for the cobra. It's my best performing cream or soap, that said I do prefer the fragrances from LASS.

No, it is not sub par, I just prefer the cream.

ABC and Boellis Panama are both great products. Flip a coin as to which one to use, or buy both.

I have the soap. To my understanding from Damon at Old Town Shaving, who stocks both, they perform just about identically.

Never seen a soap and cream that work identically however I would think it is possible.

My brother uses ABC cream daily and loves it for the scent and slickness.

I also prefer the cream (croap) to the soap. It's my favorite cream.

cream way above the soap. there is almost no scent in my abc soap but the best almond ever in the cream. I get great shaves with both but have gone to the cream only. I will try the grating of the soap and recheck. when I say I love the cream were talking criminal intent in 6 states.
