This may be blasphemy to some of the others here but in my opinion Barbasol works very well when lathered and applied with a brush. My favorite Barbasol variety is the Soothing Aloe.

I suppose doing it that way helps work the lather into your whiskers rather than simply coating your face with foam. Interesting.

Interesting, because that Barbasol in a tube in not on the Barbasol website.  I wonder if it's a new item.  Is it a brushless cream?

What I really want to know is how do we get some of the 2017 release Noxzema Lather shaving cream in the tube over here from Italy? Smile

It is. Click Shaving Cream; then slide bar (located at bottom).

I was referring to the Soothing Aloe in the can. The only canned Barbasol also available in the tube in the Sensitive Skin.

Yes, it's a brushless/latherless cream. 


The canned stuff I never use, but if I were forced to use it, I would add some water to it.  The foam that comes out of the can is too dry!  

So, if by "lathering it with a brush" you mean adding some water to it using a brush, I can see why you like it better that way.

I do indeed wet the brush with warm water and then lather up the Barbasol.

I could see using a brush to work it into your whiskers.  Ive never tried it that way.  I use Nivea shave cream for trimming my beard with a pair of clippers (the foam traps the hairs and prevents them form getting all over the sink, saving me a cleanup step) and I just squirt it in my hands and work it into a foam.
Next time, I may have to try squirting some of it into my lather mug and whipping it into a foam with my brush.

I use Nivea Sensitive in the can with a brush if I'm in a hurry and I need a really fast shave. It's not as good as a regular soap or cream, but it works. I can't use Barbasol because it contains SLS.
