Face Skin Care Ultimate Comfort Shave Cream

If you’re viewing our website, perhaps you’re trying to find out if there is a better way to shave.  Perhaps it’s because you’ve found wet shaving and love the experience you receive from an excellent, smooth, and pain-free shave using our tried-and-true methods of shave cream, hot water, a brush, and a fine razor.  James Wood, an entrepreneur and Air Force veteran, was introduced to a shaving system over 20 years ago that worked: Lab Series Maximum Comfort Shave Cream.  The thing that set this cream apart from the rest was its use of benzocaine, a mild numbing agent.  This formulation helped its users achieve pain-free shaves, albeit synthetically, with a high degree of customer satisfaction.  Jim was a loyal customer until a few years ago when Lab Series changed the formulation and took out the benzocaine.  Customer reviews on the Lab Series website filled with expressions of dissatisfaction with the new “advanced” formula.  With 90 reviews of the shave cream to date, it only averages a two-star rating out of five.  Frustrated, Jim sought alternatives to his favorite cream, and when nothing comparable was found, he did what any successful entrepreneur would do: he made his own.

Early in the 20th century, a historian of Eton College wrote, “No other school can claim to have sent forth such a cohort of distinguished figures to make their mark on the world.” Princes William and Harry are alumni, and David Cameron is the 19th British Prime Minister who attended Eton. It is the most famous high school in the world and boasts a long and proud history. In the shaving world, Taylor of Old Bond Street is a well-known brand with its own long and proud history.

The rose fragrance is one of the staples in traditional British wet shaving.  Well-known brands, such as the famous "3 Ts" (Trumper’s, Truefitt & Hill, and Taylor of Old Bond Street), have included rose in their lineup of soaps and creams for many years.  Interestingly rose was not part of the D.R. Harris & Co. catalog until only a year or so ago.  I was curious to see how the D.R. Harris Rose Shaving Cream stacked up to the competition.

TwinLuxe Smooth Shave Cream

Because of my love for traditional wet shaving, most of the products I use fall into that category. Occasionally, however, a new product comes along that does not fit exactly into that definition.  When the Tsai brothers contacted me and asked if I would be willing to take a look at their TwinLuxe shaving system, I was hesitant at first. They offer a modern, high-priced cream that requires no water to create lather.  Their innovation to create a unique product and their philosophy of shaving as a daily luxury convinced me to give this product a try. This article focuses on the central product of the TwinLuxe shaving line, the Smooth Shave Cream.
