    Lightbulb First Time With Shaving Cream

    So today i felt like trying something new and bought a shaving cream. Now from other threads and articles that i have read i thought hey, shaving cream sounds pretty nice so lets give it a go. It was not what i was expecting. I did the usual pre shave regimine and then opened the jar. it was creamy. I know its SHAVING CREAM, but i dont think i was expecting it to be that creamy. So when i went to whip it up on my brush it just kinda stuck there. I applied it, shaved with it, and it just wasnt what i was expecting. Seems to me i was expecting it to lather up a little, not as much as soap of course but at least a little and it didnt. And everytime i rinsed my razor i felt like i had wasted a little bit of it on my first go. And then when i went to clean out my brush, there was a ton of it within the britsles which made cleaning it a bit awful and very time consuming. Someone please tell me if i did something wrong so i can fix it. The shave was good but i am not one to waste anything.

    Did you create a lather on your face or try to whip it up in a bowl? Either way I think you need to add more water to the cream. Next time make sure your brush has more water.

    There are creams that are marketed as "Brushless", these don't lather and are designed to be applied with the fingers, could the cream possibly be one of these?

    What is the brand of your cream? It might be helpful in trying to assess the problem.
