I have made several posts about my sensitivity to several lather products. My most recent sensitivity was to C&E Almond! Both the cream and the soap. I was thoroughly disappointed, especially after reading many rave reviews about the efficiency of the C&E Almond. I thought maybe it was just a reaction to the C&E, so I bought a tub of D.R. Harris Almond [love D.R. Lavender]. The burn is still there with the D.R. Harris Almond, but not nearly as bad as the C&E. I have had three shaves with it and although it is not unbearable, it is uncomfortable and I notice the burn/irritation continues for several hours.
I too am a Nancy Boy Shave Cream fan! But I still like a little variety. However, of the "variety" I have used, the list of irritating creams and soaps is much longer than the list of non-irritating creams and soaps. It is really a trial and error process and I don't have to tell you it is an expensive one.
As for the NB Facial Cleanser, I do use it, but not on a regular basis. Only when I come home from work and wash my face have I sometimes used the NB. I do feel it can be slightly harsh on sensitive skin and that is why I use only a very, very small amount; just a few drops. I really like its thin consistency and it is a great product but I will probably not reorder it.
Happy Shaving, Ron the Potty Doctor
