I like Barbasol, especially the menthol, although the last can I bought was the aloe mix. And the part of the advert here still holds true about being lower priced than other brands. Too bad there isn't a current Miss Barbasol!

Addendum: I pulled my can of Barbasol form the cabinet and there on the label it proudly announces "Made in USA. Established 1919." We ought to have another Barbasol advert next year.

Back when I used aerosol shaving cream, I used Barbasol. I never cared for the gels, and Barbasol has a nice scent and gave you that thick lather no other cream could match. Plus you can use it in those shaving cream heaters that give you a warm shave on a cold winter morning.
