Coates Tea Tree cream is everything everyone says about it... slick, lather-exploder, and a heavenly smell! It might be a bit drying for me, however, because I could NOT get my face feeling moisturized until I used 2 A/S balms... weird. Took 2 A/S splashes as well. Could be the cold weather... could be the cream. I'll have to use the Coates a few more days and see how it performs... could just be an anomaly.

I've been wondering about Em's Shave Creams. Saw them on her sight but haven't really heard of anyone who's tried them. Can you give us a little summary of how it works for you?
Stop The Buss
Its me again blowing up your monitors with the Knowledge Bomb!
In the shower TJs PSO
Slim W/ fresh Sharp
Thayer's WH w/ MB ASM
ST Johns Bay Rum AS/EDC
As for the shave I am Testing the PSO
I made a horrible later (on purpose)
Dialed nine and did 3 passes ATG!!!!
I am killing myself for you Joe!
Cuts and scrapes everywhere.................................but no
irritation good job. My face looks terrible but feels fine. It
help me cut the hair any better but it defiantly helps in razor slide
As for the ASO (after shave oil) from the other day very good but needs
I will start using the PSO with normal shaves for a while and have a
report, these were just the control testing I will let you know how it
in real life, give me a few days.
I really like them. I have four scents, and this is how each one smells to me:
Skindicinal -- smells like Weleda.
Bay Rum -- my favorite of her scents; very nice, very spicy.
Woodstock -- very similar in scent to Charles Tyrwhitt Lemon & Cedar, but with a bit more cedar.
Balancing -- fresh, light, clean scent; can't equate it to anything else I own.
They all behave the same. They have the same consistency out of the tube as Kiss My Face, esp. with regard to the amount needed to get a good lather. And just like KMF, they leave my face nicely moisturized afterwards. The only difference, I would say, is that Em's is a lot slicker than KMF.
I've been slow to post a review anywhere b/c I can't find the time to take lather pictures. I will have to remedy that soon.
Bottom line: I'd recommend this cream without hesitation, esp. if you like Bay Rum.
