I was very unhappy with my "goo" and multi blade shave. After doing a lot of reading, I shaved today with a Gillette "fatboy" set on 3 with a Wilkerson Blade. VERY NICE. I had tried Porter's Shaving Soap with no luck getting much lather while "practicing". My local pharmacy had some Williams, so I tried that, and got a much better lather (and shave) What concerns me is reading the ingredients of the Williams. Sounds just like the Propellent Goo ingredients. Also, how long are you supposed to whip up the lather in a mug? I have Aqua Velva Ice Blue as an after shave, but am looking for some Bay Rum. Thanks for all the advice on line!
