View Full Version : Anthony Logistics Cream?
12-25-2007, 03:07 PM
Hey gang, hope everyone had a great holiday. So we bought my sister's boyfriend a tube of C&E Almond Oil Cream, and gave him an unused AOS badger brush that I got with an AOS kit some time back. Nothing fantastic, but it'll give him the opportunity to try real wet shaving. He is real psyched to try out shaving with a brush, I have a feeling we have another convert :biggrin:
I was surprised to find that they bought me this:
It's brushless, but her boyfriend swears by the stuff. I may give it a try, but I'll probably give it to me wife for her legs. Has anyone ever used this stuff?? I can't fathom the thought of shaving without a brush but feel I should give this stuff a try. Maybe I'll re-gift it LOL. Thanks in advance for any replies.

The saleslady at Nordstrom gave me some samples when I bought some T&H cream a while back. I've yet to try them, mostly because I enjoy the T&H so much I find it hard to reach for anything else. I need to shave this evening before we step out, so I'll try to save a few minutes to give you my impressions.

Hey, thanks for the reply. I'm debating weather or not I should remove the foil on the tube. I'd sure appreciate your impressions. Thanks again.

I received an Anthony Logistics kit this morning for Christmas and used it earlier today. I was impressed with the shave cream--very...creamy, surprisingly so since I customarily lather shave cream in a bowl instead of applying it directly to my face. The cream has a nice scent to it and is mentholated.

Hi Walvarine, I may give this stuff a go. Might be good for the times when I'm in a hurry and don't want to wake my Badger up :smile:

I thought I had the cream, it turns out I had the shave gel. For what it is worth, here are my thoughts on the gel.
It lubricates very well; better than my T&H limes. It is even better than AOS shave oil. That said, it isn't for me.
It smells a little like wintergreen, even though it is supposed to be fragrance-free. I'm not a huge wintergreen fan.
The biggest thing for me though, was the fact that it does not produce a lather. It goes on just like it comes out of the tube. I had a hard time telling what areas I had already shaved. One other thing I didn't like was the fact that becuase there is no lather, the cut whiskers just ran down my neck instead of being caught in the lather.
I found that I was using almost the same volume of gel for a single pass as volume of cream I would ordinarily mix for a 4-pass shave. With routine use, I imagine that amount would come down as I learned how much I really needed.
Overall, it performs great. I don't care much for the scent, and the fact that it doesn't lather really bothers me. If wintergreen is fine with you, and you don't mind the fact it doesn't lather, you will enjoy the shave.

If thats the same Anthony's I use then you CAN use a brush with it. I use a brush with mine all the time and it makes a great lather.

Sounds like the gel and the cream behave differently. I re-read my first post and I probably wasn't clear (a day of mimosas will do that) about the fact that I squirted the cream into my shaving bowl and whipped up the lather, which developed quite abundantly. I should note that the cream felt very rich and lubricating. I suspect it would make a nice shave sans brush.
Never like their creams but their ASB's are great

Hey gang, I just realized it's the shave gel:
I should have looked around their site a bit closer. I didn't realize they made a Gel and a Cream. Oh well, I may give it a try just to say I did. Other than that, I will probably just give it to my wife to use on her legs. Thanks again for all the replies.
