Learned something today. Thanks for the post.Don't know if I've just discovered something everyone else already knew about, but on a tip, I tried some hair conditioner as a shaving cream and it worked remarkably well! Even lathered up! One less thing I need to bring on trips. I'll just use the hotel's conditioner to shave with.
Yardley soaps are tallow based and lather up well, they didn't dry my face as much as Ivory soap. I think the drying really depends on your skin type, give it a shot and see what you think.Some of you mention bar soap. Does that not leave the skin quite dry? I've always understood hand/body soap to be too strong for facial skin. Or is it just a "in a pinch" type of thing?
I experimented a while back with using hair conditioner as a pre-shave but I was a little gobsmacked when I watched the video and saw he was actually lathering the conditioner in bowl. I was so shocked I immediately went into my
bathroomShaving Den of Iniquity and tried this myself, using the TRESemmé conditioner we have. I had to play around with the water/conditioner ratio but, in less than two minutes, I had what I would consider entirely acceptable looking shaving lather. Maybe I shouldn't be so shocked, but I really am. I'm going to try shaving with this tomorrow out of sheer curiosity.
So how did it go?
