    Certainly, very similar to http://straightrazorpalace.com/srpwi...C3%9Cberlather . Uber lathers do vary by which creams and soaps you combine but the method is pretty standard.

    Yeah, Matt. I saw that. That's what prompted me to repost it under the Beginners sub forum.

    I think it might be helpful to those either wanting to try different stuff or for those who are having a problem making a decent lather. As already stated, on this thread, its "slick" factor lends itself quite nicely to the making of the all coveted Uberlather.

    I was planning on using at some point myself today, but the "Out for Delivery" includes an sandlewood soap sample, so I'm a little divided as to which for today.

    I bought a tube of the cream about a week after I started using a straight. Personally, I can't stand the smell nor performance. I thought of using it for an uberlather, but the combination of the scents doesn't seem that great to me. Also, for SR shaving, it just didn't work well enough by itself. SWMBO uses it from time to time with a DE blade, though.

    I've used it once...two days ago. I intend to use it again today. In my previous post about this product I said that I applied it to my face and then applied a nice thick uber lather on top of it. The shave was excellent, and very 'slick' and smooth' with no irritation!

    Now...I have not used any other kind of face prep prior to lathering before this, so comparing it to other offerings on the market is something I cannot do. I will continue to use this product for awhile and if it continues to work well, I'll continue to use it.

    Today I intend to use it as a mix with my soap (rather than applied directly to my face ) to see if it will enhance or degrade a scuttle of Uber lather. I'll post my results....

    Razorthin,

    If you check the OP, I mentined that you needed to buy it in a store. I provided the company link so you can look up a retail store near you.

    I mix Cremo with soap all the time and it works for me. The rebate is nice.

    It's not clear in the first post, but the company is offering a mail-in rebate Rebates - Cremo Cream for the cost. They're trying to give a free tube to everybody who wants to try it, but cut down on the abuse factor.

    It's also available at Amazon.com: Cremo Astonishingly Superior Shave Cream, 6 Fluid Ounce: Health & Personal Care as an add-on item, for those who may not have it locally and purchase other stuff on amazon.

    Yes, I should have made that clearer. However, the information is in the thread I linked to, but it was my oversight for the immediate thread.
    When you buy it from Amazon, the rebate is still available?
    Rebates - Cremo Cream states that the purchase must be made in a store.

    I often apply it to my face and then face lather on top of it with a cream like C.O. Bigelow. A lot of mixing happens, so I guess that's a lot like an uberlather?

    I bought mine at the local CVS. I don't think you can get the rebate if you order it.
