Let me start with two facts. I ain't no lathermeister, and I ain't no photographer. So no laughing! I picked up a tub of Caswell-Massey Almond scented 1752 shaving cream for $7 bucks at Tuesday Morning. I hadn't heard any good comments about it, so I had to see for myself. Tonight was my second "lathering" with it. I have to admit, round one was more successful, but I think you will see that it still does a decent job.

2 minutes...better go for 3:
At 3 minutes of "whipping" and applied to the arm:
5 minutes on the arm and still hanging in:
10 minutes on the arm, and it's getting a bit "weepy":
And a light squeeze of the brush after 12 minutes:
So, my overall experience has been a good one. Tonight's lather was a bit on the "wet" side, but still very comfortable.
Is it a bargain? Hard to say. Need a few more uses, but for now, it was a cheap investment and I like it!
