I figured out early on when shaving that neither option suited me - every single foam and gel I tried dried my skin out.

I have not used either product for some time now, but maybe gel because it is thicker?

The first week of Gel sales...….back before many of you were born, I switched from foam and never looked back. It's slicker.
Many moons later, I found the true way.... Sbathroom_grooming_shaving_100-100 
But!! I must say,"I hate shaving, I do it because I HAVE to....not want to"
Soooo, because I have to do it every single day. I try to make the best of it.... Shy

PS
We talkin can, right?

For a one pass shave, Gel is superior to foam, easier than soap and possibily cheaper than cream.  I recall using Bulldog and other gels years ago.

The question is a general one that may be of interest to, and may generate replies from, users of straight razors, single-edge razor users, DE razor users, and wet-compatible electric shaver users.  Why did you post it in the Cartridges subforum rather than in the Soaps & Creams subforum?

I’m not a fan of any gel. There are some “foams” that are superb. This “foam” outperforms many soaps and creams.

Gel. Before I started with traditional methods, I thought Edge was a good product, and I still do. Gastby Gel from Japan is another good product.

I agree. It implies that if you use a cartridge razor that you most likely use canned gel or foam, which is sheer
twaddle. I use a cartridge razor, but would never consider using gel or foam over a brush and shaving cream/soap.
