    That's how I use it.

    Yup...I second the Cremo cooling tube. Great to throw in the scuttle on that stubborn third pass when the soaps thin out and won't come back to life. It's also great to travel with.

    I just bought a tube of the original as it was on sale at Walgreen's. I will try it tomorrow and add my $0.02.

    I recently picked up some Cremo Lavender at my local Target store. I suspect it is marketed more toward women than men, but I found the fragrance to be pleasant. Other than the fragrance, it appears to be identical to the original formula.

    The lavender scent might not mix well with some other soaps if you are using it as an additive. the original scent is more neutral. When mixed with a little hot water and lathered with a brush, it gave a smooth shave.

    I just used the Cremo concentrate as a pre-shave applied with a brush. I then mixed St. James of London Lavender with the orange scent creme and it smelled like Napalm. It created the thickest, slickest long lasting lather I have ever used. I used about a one inch strip of Cremo and a finger tip of St. James and had enough lather to shave a football team. Just be careful using your razor, I kept applying alum to my hands to keep from losing the razor. If you have sensitive skin, this is for you.

    I tried it on Friday. I used a dollop about 2/3 the size of a Hershey's kiss and worked it with a brush. The lather wasn't as creamy as AOS, but very satisfactory. I might not have worked it long enough.

    Try it with a bottom tier soap, you'll be surprised how thick n rich it becomes, as well as slicker than snot on a glass door knob.
