    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    I just ordered a bottle of Encre Noire, and I recently acquired a bottle of Guerlain Vetiver.... now I need to get a nice shave cream to go with those two. This might be the one. I've tried a sample of their Limes shave cream before and it seemed to be very good.

    By the way, my favorite creams right now would have to be Acqua di Parma Collectione Barbiere for the warmer months and Taylor of Old Bond Street Mr. Taylor for the cooler. I've been using mostly soaps lately though.

    So is this foam that comes out of a can?

    I did have a post at Badger & Blade asking for which were the better ones to come out of a can, and while several were nominated as being adequate to good (the Gillette Fusion Gel several times), no one said that they were top league. I'll keep an eye out for this one if it's in a can, as I'd be curious to try it.

    To be honest, almost all Taylors of Old Bond Street, Truefitt & Hill, Geo Trumper and Penhaligon's creams I have tried were on the same quality level - quick and rich lathering, nice shaving. The only difference is the scent. Personally my favourite scents are Jermyn Street (TOBS) and Eucris (Geo Trumper).

    Currently using the Bluebeard's Revenge shave cream, and its VERY good, nice lather, smell and a very smooth shave indeed. A 100ml tub is like £7.99 online which is really good value, I've had it for about a month now and still plenty left, this could last me 5-6 months.

    Previously I used Proraso's shaving cream which is also really good, cooling menthol as well. Before that was Bulldog's Sensitive Shave Cream which i got on well with too. But BB's Revenge is the best I've used so far.
