I posted free shaving cream a few days ago on the Classified thread. If any one wants some, check out my post there.
After this weekend, I'll probably post the offer on badger and blade (another forum I post on frequently).
I used the shaving cream this morning, and I must say that I'm very impressed!
I thought I'd be off-put by the scent, but it's not cloying or lingering, just a good black cherry aroma with maybe a touch of almond. I used a large almond sized dollop in the bottom of my shaving mug and an Art of Shaving Fine Badger brush and I was able to almost effortlessly create a wonderful lather. I thought I might have over-hydrated it a bit, it was so glossy, but it went on wonderfully and performed like a champ. I used a Gillette Black Handled Superadjustable and performed 4 passes, no irritation, cut cleanly, and with 2 days of stubble to boot.
Well done on this cream creation, and bravo and thanks to you for offering up at no cost to the members of the Lounge.

Yo Jeep how's the beard coming along?
I also used your shaving cream yesterday, and found it to be very nice! I am usually a soap shaver, so am not so well versed in using creams. I tried face lathering with a badger brush, and struggled a bit, due to the floppy nature of the badger, and like you said, the thickness of the cream. But on my 2nd pass, it lathered very nicely. It has a very lovely scent, not overpowering. I enjoy almond scented soaps, so it was right up my alley. Next time, I'll try lathering in the bowl, and perhaps using my boar's hair brush, which after all the fuss and price of badger, I tend to turn to more.
Thanks much for the sample!

Brian Solomon Cherry Almond SC (experimental test batch)
Gillette Super Adjustable
Brian's shaving cream lathered well in a bowl. Better than Bigelow, closer to AOS (those are the only two creams I've tried so far). Cushiony and slick. Took me a few rinses to get it off completely. The smell is good. Very cherry, a little almond. Cherry is not really my thing, but my wife really liked it.
Coupled with the Super Adjustable, I had a nice shave and experience this morning.
**Brian, I am going to try a few different lathering techniques and try to get you some fairly detailed evaluation data when I'm done. Thanks again for the sample (and what a generous amount)!
And, thank you kind Sir for trying it for me!Originally Posted by Zanzibarstar
Oh, yes, try lathering in the bowl as well. I usually face lather with soaps such as Col. Conk or Tabac on drill weekends if I'm in the field. However, I'm usually a bowl lather guy when I'm at the house or I'm on vacation.
