Having previous discussed “good deal” razors and shaving brushes let’s have a discussion of low-cost shaving lathers. Like the previous “good deal” articles this one is jointly written, this time by Mark (Mantic59) and shave cream/soap reviewer extrodinaire Greg (Palpz). Here are six products that produce good results for less money. They’re not the only ones of course but they are reasonably widely available. If you know of others be sure to leave a comment!

Steampunk is a special edition shaving cream that was created for The Shave Nook shaving forum by Tabula Rasa in Germany. If you’re not familiar with the steampunk genre, think of it as a “retro-futuristic” science fiction or fantasy alternate reality based in the Victorian era (though sometimes it takes place in the American West) where steam-power is still in use. HERE is the Wikipedia entry if you want to delve deeper.

Like many wet shavers, I love menthol. I never had exposure to mentholated shaving cream until I returned to wet shaving, as canned foam was my choice. It’s cooling, refreshing, and great for summertime heat. The first mentholated cream I tried, Proraso green, overwhelmed me. I thought it was too chilling. Now, I use products like Vostok, and Yeti Snot, and don’t find Proraso bracing at all. Obviously that sounds like tolerance to a substance, so I began investigating it’s chemistry, and pharmacology.
