I just can't get myself to like it. It's not the smell, yet I don't like the smell. It's not unpleasant, just not a good smell either. My face feels AWESOME after shaving with it, but while I'm shaving I can feel my blade skipping here & there and the razor burn seems a bit worse than normal (normally not much, but there's always a spot or two I can feel when I throw on aftershave). They say you can use a brush but you won't get much lather, and you don't. I even tried some with some Bigelow & even that wouldn't generate any lather. Despite the fact that my face feels AWESOME after I am done shaving, I just can't bring myself to really like it. I've been reading a bit here & I see some people will spread on some shave creams before making a lather & spreading that on. If any of you have used this, does that help? Is there something else really heavy on the shea butter as well but that gives me a better shave?
