    Dr. Carver's Shave Butter

    Anyone tried this?

    Got a free sample in the mail and used it this morning. Kind of freaked me out because it doesn't lather up but seems to work OK. I can't say it works any better or worse than your average shaving cream.

    Any thoughts from Fanatics?

    Anything is better than canned shaving cream.

    A lot better than canned cream. I like those little samples they send you to pack for work trips.

    I'd use a regular bar of soap before I used canned shaving cream. I'd use ACTUAL butter before I used canned shaving cream.

    Re: Dr. Carver's Shave Butter

    Why even shave? Just beard it up. A couple years ago I did "No Shave November" and I liked not shaving so much I have just kept it. Trim it up every 3-4 weeks and I am golden. Can't say I will ever go back to the baby face again.

    I shave about once a week. I can't ever get past the scratchy stage. Too irritating. Plus, when I don't shave, I break out like crazy.

    Jack Black Supreme Creme Triple is my #1 choice. Just a tiny dab and it lubes better than anything and lasts forever. I'm rotating with Dermalogica Invigorating Shave gel which while I like, it dispenses too quickly so won't last.

    I have only ever used the cheap cans of Barbasol shaving cream. Never really had an issue although the responses here so far make me wonder if I am missing something.


    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    I used to be the same way, but there really is a major difference.

    I use L'Occtaine shaving soap with a shaving brush. And I'm sure plenty of others here could give you tons of recommendations of what they use as well.

    What are you all talking about? Bar soap over can or gel shave cream? Strange. A good shave is about two other things anyway, 1- the razor, and 2- a warm face.

    I'm wondering that too. My whole life I have used Gillette Gel and nothing else. I also shave my head twice a week and it seems to work just fine without problems.
    Now I'm wondering if this shave butter is like shaving with a slice of Heaven?
    Also, what does this butter cost?

    Never used it but quit using that canned goo 2 years ago. Use Primarily Proraso, C.O. Bigelow or Van Der Hagen shaving soap. Whip it up with a boar hair brush and you'll never use the canned goo again.

    <---- Beard

    But my hair looks like crap cause I needed to get it cut and was trying to time it with a presentation I had to give at work. Now I'm rocking the sexy flowing locks on both ends of my head.

    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    I shave every day. Shaving is a giant money pit. I will go cheap on shaving cream but not razors.
