Feather blades have never really worked for me. And I have always preferred soap to cream. But recently I decided to try Feather blades again. But this time with cream instead of soap. From my repertoire I chose Trumper's Coconut Cream, which is one of my favorites as far as cream is concerned. This combination has been pure magic. This cream gives just the right amount of cushioning protection with just enough slickness. The usual nicks and irritation were all but gone, and BBS just about became a reality for the first time. My razor was and HD barber Pole long handle. Has anyone else enjoyed this combination?
