This morning I shaved using a tube of Woody's Shave Lather that I had received as a Christmas gift from a relative who works in a beauty supply store. I wasn't able to find much info on it, so I figured I'd write up a short review.

According to the directions on the package, the product is meant to be hand-lathered. But since there are other such products like Kiss My Face that can be used just fine with a brush I gave it a shot. I used my Vie-Long 13755 brush since it has the smallest loft of the brushes I own and is best suited for face lathering.

The lather took a little longer to really form and did not have the cushion I'm used to. I don't have very much experience with creams. I've really only used C.O. Bigelow and The Body Shop Maca root with any regularity, so those will be my point of reference. The lather was definitely thinner than what I've built with either of those, but there was still a good slickness and glide to it. About halfway through the second pass it really started to dry and thin out, so I re-applied from the bottle. Overall I was still able to get a 3-pass DFS with my new (to me) Gillette Tech that was comfortable. I could see myself using the cream again, but not choosing it over that other options that I'm used to.

The scent was a citrus blend, but there was a chemical note to it too. The closest comparison I could draw was Lemon Pledge.

Afterwards I also used Woody's Shave Relief balm. I was less pleased with this than the shaving cream. It did soothe, but it felt gummy and sticky. It had the same Lemon Pledge scent as the cream, only stronger. I'd be hesitant to recommend this one.

I also tried to get a pic of the ingredients, but it turned out to be unreadable. I could try again when I get back home if anyone is really interested.

Thanks for posting the ingredients Grumpy.

I'm not really sure how this works like an aerosol foam though, or how exactly that's a selling point.
