Top Secret (Lanolizado) Shaving Cream
This is a shout out to not only a great cream but also a great vendor. Everyone who has done business with Phil at Bull Goose knows he provides superb customer service. If I place an order Saturday afternoon my east coast time, Phil (west coast) gets it off that day and it's on my doorstep Monday. His follow-up is excellent and you can count on him giving honest helpful advice. Good honest advice is no small thing. There may be vendors his equal but none better. Board veterans know about Phil but if you're a newbie relying on Amazon or Ebay do yourself a favor and check out BullGoose. I picked up the subject cream from Phil which is what prompted this gushing.
Like a lot of guys I don't use shaving creams that often and when I do, it's often for super-lathers. But occasionally when I'm in a rush I'll hop in the shower and need to do a 5 minute shave. Today was such a day; put a snurdle of the Lanolizado in my palm, loaded the Thater from there and had an instant beautiful face lather. Did a quick 2-pass with a Feather AS and had a great DFS in well under 5 minutes. The lanolin in the product may be what leaves your face feeling so great post-shave. I hadn't used this Portuguese cream before but I think it's replaced Speick as my goto for this kind of quick shave. It has a pleasant mild scent. I should add that I don't think there's a better (and safer) razor out there than the Feather for a rushed shave.
