After spending a small fortune I am back to Kiss My Face and Pacific Shave Oil.

I think each on there own or combined works just about as good as anthing I have used and it can be purchased at most health food stores.

No argument here, KMF is good stuff, inexpensive and readily available.

KMF Lime is wonderful as is the Lavender. I didn't care much for the Cool Mint or the Patchouli scent wise but the performance was as great as expected.

Do you all really feel pre-shave oil makes a difference? Is there any substitute such as a hot shower or alternative lathers/pre-shave creams??

Not a believer in PSO. I tried it and it did nothing for me, of course YMMV. 3 minutes of face lathering does the preshave for me. This time of year a hot towel prep (Ahhhh!), then the 3 minutes of FL.

Back to KMF... No argument here. I'm on record... a very underrated product that is the easy equivalent of higher priced european products that are high priced due to shipping across the pond. I just wish it came in a hard soap, then I'd stock up.

Thanks for all the responses. I am sure a lot of the vendors are not going to like this but my advice is to save your money KMF, and I am positive there are other products that are cheap and readily available that work as good if not better than most of the high end soaps including alot of the artisian soap makers. Think about all the shipping cost associated with all these purchases. I think we have all made these internet shops alot of money.

With that said I guess it can be looked at as a hobby, but some of us purchased alot of product. Frankly I couldnt use all if mine up for years and by that time this stuff will not be healthy to use.

I got mine at Uncle Deans Good Groceries, a sort of health food store. But my local supermarket (Hannaford) carries it in their natural food section.

It is indeed very good cream. However, i really prefer Mike's Natural and Mystic Water for their scents and overall performance and post-shave properties. Enjoy!

* Matt, i have to concur with Brian as i never really enjoyed pre-shave oil with DEs and found it did nothing. A good face-lather along with massaging the soap in with my fingers does a much better job!

It's worth getting KMF unscented to make superlather from your favorite soaps.

And I've found pre-shave oils to be not very useful.

But Randy, you can't rub the pick on your face with KMF. Tongue

I'll jump on the KMF bandwagon with the rest of you. It's my go to cream, love the performance, the price and the availability. Tried a lot of creams from all over the world and KMF, Arko and Musgo Real are my favorites (for now). Grabbed some Crabtree and Evelyn West Indian Lime and it smells and works wonderful, but not sure if it will make the cut.

Tongue You're right, Brian. So, sometimes I'll just squirt a bit on my hands and rub it on my face then face lather. If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with.

I made a video a while back using KMF cream. after I figured out that I wasn't using enough cream, it came out lovely.
