My go-to gloop
on 30 April 2013
To give some context, to aid you in deciding whether this stuff is the right one for you - I am a double edge blade user with a thick stubble. My shaving technique is mostly blade buffing.
For shave gels, I have used the Zirh shave gel (blue gloop), the Kyoku Shave Creme (green gloop), and Jack Blacks Beard Lube (white gloop).
This stuff, for me, is the best of the gloops. It is a pretty thick white gel, and rubs in to the beard well. It gives a very slick surface and it is easy to see where you have shaved, which can be an issue with clear gels.
It always gives a comfortable shave, even if I haven't bothered to soften my beard with shower or hot towel or pre-shave gel.
For 3 day or more stubble, it works great too, but then again, older stubble tends to be softer anyway and you get a close comfortable shave just from that.
For closeness, it is the best of the above three for me and gives a great smooth result. I don't end up with shaving rash after. It leaves the skin well moisturised.
I couldnt say how long a tube would last, but you dont need to squeeze out that much to cover your face.
I've tried it using a gillette cartridge, and they dont play well. The lubra-strips on the cartridges just end up gumming up with the gel. Man up and use a DE or maybe even a straight!
Overall, I've found my no-lather quick-prep go-to solution.
