Yeah, i dont know how to explain it.... After almost every one of the major creams/soaps i have tried T&H, T, TOBS, MWF, C&E, propraso, all of them gave me an uncomfortable/decent shave that required soothing afterwards.... At first i was in heaven with Floris cream (as mentioned in my previous post...

Castle forbes and JF Floris

Hey Guys, I have tried both Floris and and Castle forbes and both of them are awesome creams, in my book much better than trumpers or any other soap or creams ive tried. I seriously think it has something to do with the aloevera they both use as a main ingredient. Both creams work wonderfully with m...

Interesting thread... I've been having some pimple issues lately and I hadn't been able to figure out what was causing it. I think I'll try using the cream instead of the soap for a week or so and see what happens. That was the exact situation i was in... I loved the cream so i thought i would try ...

BTW, i tried the Woolfats/Kent and that didnt work for me either... It seems that anything that has any kind of oily fats doesnt agree with my skin, makes my face red and eventually leads to break outs that take several days to clear.....

JF Floris Cream vs Floris Soap

Hey Guys, So, i have tried both the floris cream and soap and i gotta say the soap doesn't seem to stand up much at all to the cream! Every time i use the cream its as if i can do no wrong with the razor..... Its perhaps the most cushioning, quickest lathering, slickening and best feeling after ward...

Tim is right, its very personal. But, i love the Santal shave cream (wish they had it in soap) and EDT... But, i tend to like heavier scented products (so long as my skin handles it)... But, seriously it is the creamiest/most comfortable shave.... I am by no means a newbie to the old school shaving ...

Have just been trying floris (cream) for the last couple of days, i must concur; GREAT stuff! Lather is extremely creamy and protective... I cant wait to try the soap, i hope its as thick and protective as the cream!

Trumpers just didnt work for me! It seriously felt like i was scraping/plucking my face shaving with the cream..... YMMV, but Trumpers (a couple years ago) just wasnt for me..... Now Floris on the other hand so far is amazing, you might wanna give them a try they give out free sampler packs florislo...

Floris Cream is amazing!

Hey Guys, I shake my head in shame as i write this! I attempted to nip my SCAD in the bud about a year ago by completely forcing myself to stick to the shave cream/soaps i already had; i figured i had tried alot of stuff and that you cant really improve much on the quality stuff i thought i already ...
