Wow! This shaving cream is awesome. No more nicks and cuts!!!
I switched to using a safety razor 3 1/2 years ago. I bought a Merkur 34C safety razor, Merkur razor blades, and the Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush. I initially tried Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream, but the smell made me ill. I switched to The Art of Shaving branded unscented shaving cream, and I loved the creamy texture.
I loved everything about my safety razor setup. But I would get nicks and cuts at least once a week. I always assumed it was unavoidable when using a safety razor. I tried other razor blades, but the Merkur blades are by far the best. I tried shaving in different directions. Still, I couldn't avoid the nicks and cuts, especially on my chin.
Last month I decided to try Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Shaving Cream. It is amazing!!! The texture is incredible. Even better than The Art of Shaving shaving cream. But best of all, I have virtually eliminated all nicks and cuts. I never imagined shaving cream would make such a dramatic difference. But it does!
This is premium shaving cream, but I use a pea sized dallop and it is plenty. With it's larger size, this shaving cream is cheaper than The Art of Shaving shaving cream, but 10x better! I won't be switching shaving cream any time soon!
