Yep, slow and steady, that's what I say. Of course, within two weeks of saying so, I found myself knee-deep in all sorts of paraphernalia, and in need of an extra recycling bin to handle all of the spent priority mail boxes and packing peanuts that were threatening to overtake the garage.
I haven't tried the unscented AOS, but their other three blends are all top shelf. Other unscented creams you should look for are Taylor's and T&H Ultimate Comfort.
I used to have very bad allergies, and have been nursing a case of asthma that almost killed me in the past. I was the type who couldn't walk into a department store through the entrance by the perfume section. Allergies are weird- you can develop them late in life, or you can grow out of them. Currently, I can use colognes and expose myself to scents that would have been unthinkable years ago, and can enjoy pipes and cigars (the bane of my existence). When I started this wet shaving thingy, I presumed that I would have to use hypoallergenic preparations exclusively. Fortunately I didn't follow my own advice- I would have missed out on the best part of this hobby. Everyone's tolerance varies, of course, but I'm sure there are lots of products that you can use without ill effect.
