I sell AC styling products in the shop and I rate them quite highly.
I have some of the shave cream which is a latherless cream. It smells nice and is quite slick but I just don't like it. I pull it out of the cupboard every now and then but never quite get the shave I was hoping for. As for the AS balm/gel stuff, it's ok, quite cooling but the menthol element has caught me out following a quick (read rough) shave and left me with quite a burn.
Overall I reckon Taylors shave creams/soaps outrank Crew and are the same price if not cheaper.
Due to lack of interest tomorrow is cancelled!
