Let me start off, I am a rookie when it comes to DE shaving. I have only been wetshaving for three months or so.
This is my first foray into shaving creams. I have only used soaps so far. I decided to try the T&H sample pack since I have heard plenty of good things about them.
The first shave. 1805:
I plopped a peanut sized dollop of cream into my bowl and I was rewarded with copious amounts of slick lather almost instantly. Unsurprisingly, it was a fantastic shave. What did surprise me is the scent. I had assumed that 1805 was going to be a somewhat dated "old man" scent if you will. But it was a nice, classic, refreshing scent that carried well into their AS balm.
It was a great start to the sample pack. I will be reporting back in with my opinions on the other scents.
Keep in mind, I don't really know all that much about creams and scents. I'm still just a kid (only 20) trying to get his feet wet in DE shaving.
