This has been sitting in my den for a while, not getting much use because I just couldn't get it to lather properly - which I though was a shame since I really like the scent it has.

As they say, well, duh! A bit of digging recently showed me that this is a cream meant to be used with no brush... so no wonder I couldn't whip it into a lather - it's simply not meant to do that, so adding water to it and whipping it just made it runny.

Using it the way it was intended to was a significant improvement, but it can't compare to proper lather in my opinion. Plenty of glide, fairly moisturizing and a pleasant scent... but no cushion at all. Nada. Zip. In that regard it was little different than shaving with just water.

For a brushless cream it's decent enough - so if you're in the market for that you could do worse than picking it up. For a proper 'at home' shave with a brush and enough time to use it.... no.

Someone PIF'ed me the aftershave once and I loved the scent, but I already have 2 brushless creams I've bought over the years thinking they might lather, and until I use them up I don't think I'd go after any new ones.

I do find brushless creams are great for shower shaving with a cartridge razor when I'm in a hurry so I don't mind having some on hand.

You know, a squirt of KMF unscented might give you enough to get a lather worthy of shaving with without killing the scent.

I'm sorry, I am not familiar with that term. Sounds a bit like a face torture device. Biggrin

LOL.

I don't trust a DE in the shower so I resort to a cartridge system. I do however, limit it to Atra double blades. No 3,4, or 5 blade systems for me Smile

Thanks for the review, Hans. I did the same thing with some Acqua di Gio brushless shaving cream. But I finally decided it wasn't worth keeping even for brushless use, and I pitched it.
