We've got a local chain of stores called The Dollar Tree and unlike the other Dollar stores, everything in there is $1. Last Friday I bought a tube of something called Rise Shave Gel. Comes in a tube like Kiss My Face does. Somewhere on it, it says, Since the 50's so I guess you older guys might remember it. I was around in the 50's but wasn't shaving yet. This stuff is very slick and you can shave with it, but you can't make it lather! It says to wet your face and rub it on. That's probably the best advice. It's invisible though and makes it hard to see where you've already shaved. I tried putting it in a bowl and lathering it up with my Shavemac Silvertip. I could get about enough visible lather to fill the brush but it would vanish faster than you can shave it off? Strange stuff.
