Art of Shaving Unscented Shaving Cream

Item Description

This is one of my favorite creams.

Prices (early part of 2008) at USD$22/5.3 oz, this product is within the price range of high quality creams, and for me, delivers on that point.

With a peanut sized scoop, I can easily get enough thick rich lather for 4 passes (although I usually end up finishing at 3).

How thick and rich is the cream? I have a thick beard, and I can let a layer of this lather sit on my face without seeing any of my hairs- there arent many creams or soaps that I can say that about.

It provides a good lubrication for shaving, and leaves my face feeling soft and well moisturized.

I find myself grabbing this tub more often than my Truefitt.

AOS Unscented continues to be my gold standard for creams. It consistently produces a lush, thick, luxurious, slippery lather every time. I'm very open to alternatives. But, no other cream I have tried such as Castle, and the three T's produce a lather and experience of this high quality. I have decided that I don't like scented creams. Most of them either smell medicinal or artificial. It's definitely a YMMV situation. I also feel that scented creams - because of their additives - have more of a tendency to irritate the skin. That said, if I found a scented-only cream that performed better than this, well, I'd use it. Yes, it's upfront costs are a bit higher. However, they are competitive with the upper-range creams - really no expensive than any other premium cream. You use very little of it for each shave so a tub or tube last a long time. Most things in life aren't worth the extra money. This one is! In the broad scheme of things what's a few extra pennies every day? Certainly a better and cheaper "investment" than a store-bought cup of coffee or can of soda every day.

AOS gets a bad rap around here because they are a P&G company. Or have fancy stores or whatever. I say, "WHO CARES!" In the final analysis, a product either delivers or it doesn't. In my opinion, AOS Unscented Cream really delivers like no one else out there.
