I picked up a tube of US Palmolive cream at my local CVS at lunch today. Has anyone read the direction on the US tube of Palmolive? Here they are:
Now, I guess I can understand the "soap" term being used to denote face wash and the like, but why would you soap it again and leave it on???1) Wash face with soap and water. Rinse.
2) Soap face again. Do not rinse.
3) Apply Palmolive Shave Cream with wet brush. Work up thick lather, brushing it upward into beard to get the full benefit of Palmolive Lather's beard-conditioning effect.
4) Shave, wetting razor frequently.
After I wash, I rinse thoroughly and put on glycerin or Proraso pre-shave. I would think leaving soap (especially regular soap) on while you prepare the lather would tend to dry your skin out and make it less smooth for the lather. I wonder if anyone involved with the marketing or production of this product actually is a wetshaver. Am I wrong here, or is it not recommended to leave soap on under your lather?
Oh well, I'm going to give this a spin tonight and see what I think. There have been some good reports from some you about this inexpensive cream.
