I'm a huge Cremo fan as well. Just using your fingers on your wet face and spreading a dollop of Cremo (they say the size of an almond) provides an amazingly slippery surface that the blade just glides over. I tried it on a lark and now use Cremo probably 50% of the time. It leaves my face smooth and irritation-free.Finger applier here. But keep in mind I'm also a shower shaver.
Cremo works great. It's my favorite to use. Seems like this may work best for shower shavers.
EOS I recently tried from Walmart. It's not bad at all. Applies easily with fingers. Not foamy. Not very slick. But works pretty good. Probably better for those that aren't shower shavers.
Lucky Tiger liquid cream shave. This stuff lathers up surprisingly well with hands. Slick but not "slimy" like cremo. Gets a bit runny on my chin by the time I get to it.
So for shower shaving I highly recommend cremo as my top choice. For just finger lathering and you want something more "foamy" Lucky tiger. If our camping and want something easiest to wipe off with a towel then the EOS would be my choice.
