This thread is for the discussion of the reviews I posted for Nancy Boy Shave Cream and Nancy Boy Cooling A/S Gel. Being I.T illiterate I have no idea how to post a link, but if anyone would like to tell me how it's done I would be more than happy to hear from you.
Firstly, for those who were made nauseous by my gushing first impressions, I apologise; I may have seemed a little over the top in my praise of these products, but I stand by it, after a full week I am still impressed with these products. The shave cream will definitely remain my go to product and I am very fond of the A/S.
A final mark of 83% in my review of the cream doesn't give an accurate impression of just how highly I rate this cream. I marked it down based on the packaging. The packaging isn't bad, but I feel this cream deserves a lot better. It should be contained in a solid gold tub, encrusted with diamonds and entwined with the finest silks, delivered into your hand by a procession of scantily clad maidens and accompanied by an angelic orchestra. Obviously the overheads for such elaborate presentation would be high so how about a nice glass tub instead? NB is better than any of the 3T's that I have tried so why shouldn't it have a better tub?
As for the shave I think it is superb. Not only was I encouraged to go back to my Futur after the "incident" but I also loaded it with a Feather blade, with this cream there wasn't even a tiny little nick. In fact I was so confident that the NB cream would allow for any flaws in my technique that I even shaved with the Slant Bar this morning. This was against my better judgement, and the advice of the more experienced, but I thought it would make a great cliffhanger for the end of my first week with the NB. Ron had recently given me some good advice about angle and technique, this, coupled with the Nancy Boy cream gave me the confidence to go ahead with the/|. The shave wasn't especially close, but given the /|'s fearsome reputation this was down to my cautiousness and not any inherent flaws with the razor or the cream. More importantl there was no arterial bleeding!
In conclusion I love this cream and I know most of you do too. However I would like to hear from anyone who has any new observations on the cream or A/S or any comments about my reviews.
