    Re: Dr. Carver's Shave Butter

    I'd be eternally grateful to anybody who can tell me how to consistently get a good lather with shaving soap and a brush. About one time out of 10 I get what I would consider a "lather". I'm about ready to give up.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I saturate my brush in water, let it briefly drip on the soap then, swirl the brush like crazy on the soap to get my lather?

    I don't shave every day, but it takes me about a year or longer to go through one thing of shaving soap. It costs about 10-15 bucks. I don't know how much you spend a year in shaving cream, but I bet you lose money when comparing to other soaps or butters.

    I dunno. I shave every day and a can of cream can last between a month and a month and a half (or maybe it just seems that way because I always end up with a stockpile of about 3-4 cans of the stuff). A can of barbasol costs about $1.50.

    Also, what does this butter cost?
    I think it is like $8 a bottle, which last me 2-3 months.

    Is it weird that I use nothing? I shave right after I shower and have just never needed anything.

    I use a safety razor and double edge razor blades. You can pick up a decent safety razor on amazon for $30. Double edge blades are dirt cheap. Can get 100 of them for $10-$20 off amazon. After the cost of the razor the blades are dirt cheap.

    A puck of Van Der Hagen Luxury brand shaving soap is $4 at wally mart. It will last 3-4 months.

    Re: Dr. Carver's Shave Butter

    I love the shave butter. Best think Dollar Shave Club ever did was send me that sample. Best shave I've had.
