While I am really still a newb when it comes to DE shaving, I decided that while I like the KMF Unscented that I have been using it was time to try a little bit of some of the more "upscale" creams out there. So when it comes to scents, I do love lime and as it is starting to get into the hot season here in DC I thought it was a great choice for this time of year.
Castle Forbes Lime
Taylor of Bond St. Lemon & Lime
Truefitt & Hill West Indian Limes
(all purchased via a sampler set from TheShaveDenShop.com)
I am very excited to see how these perform and will be reporting back my findings. I will be using '66 Slim Adjustable set at 5. I haven't settled on a blade yet as I have been working through my sampler pack but I will keep the blade the same when trying all the creams. I also got TOBS Eaton College and T&H 1805 in my sampler set and am excited to give those a shot. Really I am just hoping to find a good smelling cream that lathers well and somewhat easily but most importantly has some "glide" to it. While the KMF is good at lathering I find it to not be a slick as I would like and my razor's head sometimes catches/skips. Mind you this isn't a blade thing, I can tell when my technique is bad. This is actually the large metal surface part of the top of my SA grabbing my face vs sliding along.
I will report back soon. Should take about 5 days to get my samples then the test can begin!
