This is something that I have noticed in my long years off shaving, and I am wondering if you guys have had this experience too.
I have found that although some creams and soaps are definitly better quality than others, alot also depends on the blade you use with certain products. For some reason it seems like some soaps/creams react differently to certain types of steel, or the coatings on the steel, thus altering the shaving properties of each.
Does anyone else notice this? Does anyone have any scientific explination for this odd conclusion that I have reached?
