I just ordered a couple shaving creams from the Gentleman's Quarter. They were on my list to try since they are a tallow based cream. The tallow based soaps get a lot of praise on this board, but are also noted to be somewhat more difficult to lather with, at least for the noob, which includes me. So I figured that using a cream should eliminate any lathering difficulties that might exist in trying to use a soap, and still give a tallowy goodness to the lather. So having ordered the stuff on Tuesday, it hits my front porch on Friday. Great customer service. I got the 'Oak and Moss' and 'Bay Rum with Sweet Orange' scents. Both are great smelling and get nods of approval from SWMBO. I shaved with the 'Oak and Moss' flavor this morning. I only wish that I had more experience with different soaps and creams in order to give some comparisons, but such is not to be. I got a great lather with almost no effort, just a little dab of cream and a dribble of hot water in a pre-warmed bowl and I have enough lather for a three pass shave. I like it!
