I need some input from you Musgo users. Musgo is, perhaps, my favorite cream just because it smells so good. But, I am afraid I am overlooking several bad traits of this cream just because I like the aroma so much.
Simply put, my Musgo does not lather well, it is not slick, and my razor drags when I use this cream (even with Kyle's prep). Yes, I can whip up lots of foamy and slick lather with various other creams -- Salter Vetiver, Floris Santal, T&H Ultimate Comfort, Proraso Green, Keihls, etc., -- even Old Spice. So, I know what I am doing with my SR 3124, hot water, cream and a mug.
I think something is wrong here. I recall another thread here about Musgo being dry in the tube. Mine came that way too. My Musgo is almost always hard to get out of the tube, and what does come out is hard to the touch when compared to all my other creams. Contrary to my other creams, it also takes a while just to get any whip out of Musgo once I start in with the brush and some hot water.
Please tell me I have a bad batch or the tube is letting it dry out too much. Do you Musgo users have better luck with this cream than I have been having? I would hope so as the reviews have been good. Next time, maybe, I need to transfer it from the tube direct to a sealable tub so it will stay fresh. Thoughts or comments?
Afterthought -- I hate to give up on this cream as I very much like using the complete line of Musgo -- cream, then the wonderful aftershave (best on the market in my opinion), and then finish with the Musgo #2. I sometimes even use the pre-shave oil.
