    For the past month I've been using Trader Joe's Honey Mango ($4) or olive oil combined with aloe vera and the results are superior to the expensive and chemical ridden products I have used. Natural, inexpensive and very moisturizing. I personally have used a brush and high end creams for years, but found most of them too drying for my skin, not to say overpriced for what you get.

    They are not kidding. A dime-size application (I use a wet shaving brush on a wet face) produces copious amounts of smooth, soothing and super-slick lather.

    The most slippery creams I have are,
    Trumpers,
    Art of Shaving,
    Crabtree & Evelyn.
    The Australian Windsor cream is nearly as good, but at $7 is a fraction of the previous creams' prices.

    The best brushless/latherless creams I have are,
    Jack Black Beard Lube (not really a cream, sort of a clear liquidy gel),
    Australian Natio Shave cream and Shave Gel (can't tell the difference between these two)
    Australian David Jones Luxury Shave cream.
    (These Australian brushless creams are better and cheaper than most of the foreign ones I've tried - a lot better than Neutogena, and a bit above the far more expensive Body Shop Macca Root one and Zirh one)
    Australian TriShave 3 in 1 shave cream, better than Neutrogena, not quite as good as the Body Shop and Zirh one.

    And I am extremely impressed with King of Shaves Azor Advanced Shaving Gel.
    It is relatively inexpensive, it doesn't shave as smoothly as any of the above (as it's not as slippery as any of them), but it cushions. I have a lot less nicks and alum stings when I use it relative to other creams.

    I'm enjoying the Italian soft soaps / hard creams at the moment: Proraso, Cella, RazoRock etc. I've a couple more from that genre to explore yet (i.e. Vitos) but, once I've used up my stock of these, I'll start investigating some of the French soaps (Provence Sante, Martin de Candre, Institut Karite, Monsavon etc) as well as some of the artisan offerings from my own British shores. I've owned and sampled plenty of the usual suspects from TOBS, GFT etc but, for both value and enjoyment, I'd rather buy a cheap Palmolive stick (49p) or cream (£1.75). I've moved on all bar DR Harris's Arlington soap and Trumper's Coconut Oil cream.

    Just Purchased Kyoku Sake Infused Shave Cream for Sensative Skin. They have one for regular skin as well and let me just tell you it BLOWS ME AWAY everytime I use it. You can get it on their website or Barneys. Ive tried NUMEROUS shave creams because I get severe razor bumps on my neck and this reduces the amount of bumps more than any other cream ive used.

    Ive used Edge, Gillette Regular Foam, Aveeno, Jack Black Beard Lube and countless others. So far this is the best.

    Current Top 5:

    4.) Dior Homme Intense ( Vintage )
    3.) Dior La Collection Privee Ambre Nuit
    2.) Creed Aventus
    1.) Xerjoff Ibitira

    I've found that as far as "comes in a can" goes, it's hard to beat the Nivea offerings. They lather decently, do their job, and the biggest distinction from other "goo in a can" products: they wash off of your razor rather than clog it.

    Absolutely, +1 for Caron Pour Un Homme. Incredibly rich foam and fantastic scent! I wet shave with an electric razor and this works wonderfully.

    A little goes a long way...great suggestion cacio, my friend!

    Cheers.

    I have the Trader Joe's Honey Mango - great shaving cream, but it doesn't lather. Nice on the skin - as I use a wet, electric razor.

    I can recommend the Alba Botanicals line of shaving creams in the same genre - all nice with refreshing scents (Aloe & Mint, Coconut & Lime, etc.) The key is a very good cleansing wash with an exfoliating facial soap, then rinse and apply this to moist skin and let it settle for a few minutes (and the nutrients absorb into your skin). Wet shave and you end up with very little razor burn.

    Good stuff - and all that I mentioned are paraben-free and use organic/natural ingredients and are rich in Aloe and Vitamin E. What is nice is that all are also unisex, so I can use them on my face and my wife can use it on her legs. Very versatile.

    Trader Joe's Aloe Mint foaming shaving is a bit thin - I use it when I have a light beard and am willing to tolerate a bit more razor burn...decent product, fair for the price.

    Cheers.

    I rotate Taylors sandalwood, jermyn st and Trumpers GFT....I prefer the soap in a bowl but add a wee bit of the corresponding cream for extra richness. Taylor's shaving soaps in particular produce a very nice lather....I shall stick to them.

    Proraso green, Cella and La Toja soap stick are my current favourites. I've tried a fair few and I've plenty more to explore too - French soaps like Institut Karité, Provence Santé and Martin de Candre in particular.

    I'm giving a plug to Cyril R Salter's French Vetiver, which I recently bought. It pairs brilliantly with Sycomore or Encre Noire.

    I really like Art of Shaving Lemon. I'm just getting into the safety razor scene coming from a strict electric razor life, so I haven't used a ton of shaving creams in my day, but I really like AOS Lemon because it works for me and it smells awesome!!

    You don't really need to try a lot of shaving creams. AOS Lemon is excellent and right up there with the most slippery creams I've tried - Trumpers and Crabtree& Evelyn. The only problem I've had with such slippery creams is that both with really mild DE razors (Lord L5 say) and with some cartridge razors (King of Shaves 4 blade Azor and Schick Hydro 5 blade) they don't shave close enough. Those razors instead work excellently with less slippery creams.

    Razorock's S Maria is an outstanding cream, and the price cannot be beat. Hands down the best cream I've ever used at any price point.
