I tried my homemade shaving soap with Palmolive shaving lather and loved the results. But I cannot stand the Palmolive alone. I was wandering if cream is so much better than soap that I should start using a recipe I dug up a few years ago for shaving cream. Is there a difference in the lather between the two or is the cream just more convenient? I cannot bring myself to pay 10 to 15 bucks just to see if a good cream will beat my soap. The cream will cost about $.30 per ounce to make as apposed to $.15 for my soap. Amy thoughts?
