Received a tube of Speick cream today via Amazon- I'd ordered it out of curiosity and to round out an order for free shipping.
I tried it tonight. I used a DB scuttle, Omega 49 brush, Edwin Jagger 89L razor and a Feather blade with 3 shaves on the odometer.
It took a little longer to create the lather in the scuttle than some other creams, but the lather that resulted was just great: very slick, glossy, and lots of it from an almond-sized snurdle. Seems to me that it would work just fine for face lathering as well.
I did a 4 1/2 pass shave with enough lather left over for another pass. The result, without really trying, was between DFS and BBS. No nicks, no weepers, and zero razor burn, as in zip. My skin was left feeling smooth and moisturized. No drama, just a smooth, comfortable shave. As far as scent goes, there was very little, and what there was was best described as inoffensive.
My two standards for creams are Proraso and J.M. Fraser's (yes, I know, I'm a prole). This stuff is equal or better than both.
Good stuff. I'm a convert, for sure.
