.......... it sure seems weird without the lather.
I've been testing lots of creams and soaps, and until today, Trumpers Sandalwood Cream had reigned supreme, with absolutely no nicks or razor burn compared to the others I'd tried. Two days ago, I was worried that maybe my Fusion cartridge was getting worn, and that was why I kept getting nicks, thus biasing my results. So I used that cartridge again with the Trumpers cream, and again it still gave me the same best result.
Today I was somewhat worried. The back of the Jack Black Beard Lube tube said "To always shave during or after a shower". Well, I don't like having a shower, then a shave and then going to bed. So instead, this morning I wet my face, wandered around for 7 or 8 minutes with a wet face, went back and wet it again, applied the Beard Lube and shaved with the same Fusion cartridge. The Lube didn't have the same ultra-slippery glide as the Trumper's cream, but the results were the same - no nicks or razor burn.
I am extremely impressed with it.
I got it at around half the price of the Trumpers tube, and the Lube tube has roughly double the quantity.
To those of you who have tried it, how do you rate it against your favourite soap or cream?
Also, what do you think of the assumption on the back of the Lube tube that everyone necessarily showers in the morning?
Don't some people like to go to bed with clean pores at night?
