I've been using Cremo as a pre shave and you can't beat the results and price.  Considering what you pay for pre shave oils, creams etc, for $8.00 for Cremo its a steal.

Cremo definitely has it's place.  I have some, so I use it every now and then. 

It's inexpensive, available everywhere and if one follows the directions on the tube it works well - as a preshave or even for shaving.  The CVS near me sells it in tiny tubes rated for (I believe) 15 shaves - so - TSA friendly.

The experience is definitely different.  Lots of folks like 'the ritual' with a brush and building lather - Cremo changes that.  Also folks like to experiment with scent profiles and Cremo's a bit dull/artificial there.
Although they do have some more 'upscale' scents/colognes/shampoos in some places now - scent wise it's not going to compete with the more traditional soap/creams. 

But if you just care about results while using it - it's a solid choice.  I could see using it camping or somewhere that a full on brush setup might be more hassle than it's worth. 

If you look on some other older forums, when Cremo first came out it smelled like straight up Pina Colada - and many couldn't get past that alone.  That's gone now, at least with the 'original' forumula, now it's more 'barbershop'.

I use it as a pre–shave at times. And as a shave-only cream. That comes in handy when traveling or in a rush. And it leaves my skin smooth.

I have a couple of tubes of Cremo.  I use them when I'm in a hurry and don't have time for the Lather Ritual.  I usually just squirt a dollop on a warm, wet brush, and quickly face lather.  It's unremarkable, but effective!  Wet shaving doesn't ALWAYS need to be luxurious.  Sometimes "effective" is fine.
