Sometimes my wife might see a shaving cream that she knows that I do not have and buy it for me as a gift. Or one of her friends might say that such & such is a good shaving cream.

However, sometimes they are the clear or translucent type of shave cream/gel.

I don't want to throw them away but, I would like to get some use out of them when I shave.

So what do you use them for?

1) Use them as a pre-shave.

2) Use them when you are doing your final passes.

3) Add a few drops of Glycerin and lather them up.

4) Mix them with some other shaving cream or soap (and if necessary add a few drops of Glycerine too).

5) Toss-em

I'd try them as a pre-shave. That's how I used up my Aveeno gel goop.

I would also use them as a pre shave. I know some people like the RazoRock Shave Lube as a pre shave.

I use the Razorock shave gel as a preshave mostly. It's funny how we'll re-purpose something vs just tossing it though.

Use them as a pre shave : I have all the RazoRock ones , including the Professional Lube , and works great as a pre shave.I also shave my head with them.

Thanks for the responses.

Re-Purposing is the way to go.

(I had a tube of Burt's Bees until I took it on a trip and the bottle exploded. And somewhere I have some Noxzema to figure out how to use.)

PIFing would not be too bad of an idea ... but, I would rather do that with an duplicate item.

You might want to at least try them brushless. I was amazed at how well KMF works brushless (although I like using a brush with it).

Brothers once wrote several interesting reviews on brushless creams that were enlightening.
