    Used to use Noxzema years ago, but never was a fan of the smell, my bride bought me a tube of Trader Joe’s Honey Mango with Aloe shave cream for a trip years ago. I have been using it in place of Noxzema as a shave prep. About a dime size dollop on a wet face as I get my gear out and strop a razor is all I need.

    Lather over the Trader Joe’s and it lathers up rich and is super slick. A tube last about a year and sells for about $5 in the store. It has almost no sent.

    I use Noxzema and add a few drops of glycerin... seems to work well.

    Not too long after this thread started I noticed my skin was becoming very soft. I was also using Thayers two or three times per day.

    I was getting a lot of nicks and irritation. Also, there were actual cuts where before there had been none. I surmised my skin was the issue and not my technique.

    This may have been age related. I am 70 now. Your skin thins with age for many people.

    I quit using Noxema and only apply Thayers once after my shave.

    The problem went away.
