Just wanted to state my appreciation for the classic. It may not give quite as slick of a shave as a real cream or soap lather, but it's cheap, it smells really darn good, and it gives a good shave if you use it like I do.
Since the foam is mostly air and has high surface tension, you can mix it with a fair amount of water. I usually spread a very thin layer around most, but not all of my face, then cup some water in my palm and use that to spread it around the rest of the way. Not only does this let you use less (as if it wasn't economical enough already) but it also gives it more lubrication and cushion.
The other thing is, since none of the Barbasol types have oil except Skin Conditioner, it can leave your face a little bit dry. I counteract this by using a DE razor soaked in Jojoba oil. Jojoba is great for your skin, protects the blade from oxidization, and gives extra lubrication. It's one of the best tricks I ever learned when it comes to shaving.
So overall, my setup isn't as luxurious as some, and you have to be careful not to nick yourself, but it's incredibly cheap and fast thanks to the longer-lasting razors and Barbasol amount used. Not to mention the cool-looking can, the nostalgia factor, and did I mention the smell can't be beat? Yes I did.
Anyone else like canned barbasol? I haven't tried the actual cream tube kind ("therapeutic") yet but I'm getting some next week.
