    Another one for just warm water and a blade.
    Stopped washing my face with anything but soap a couple of years ago, since then haven't needed anything for shaving either.
    Skin's better for it too.

      I use soap and water. I've used shaving creams, lotions, gels, oils, but for me nothing beats a bar of soap for ease and convenience. I'm not terribly hairy, so this is just my own experience. The key point is to use a good, fresh razor, keep your skin lathered and wet. The moisture is needed to make sure your razor glides along smoothly and not give you nicks and cuts.

        I use a cheap twin blade razor, and regular body bar soap. I also shave in the shower, which helps keep the beard softer. I am no longer in the military, so I don't shave every day. Twice a week... maybe. I have used an old fashioned straight razor before, but if you are traveling, good luck getting that past the touchy-feely security administration.....

          Just used hot water this morning. It worked like a charm, so thanks everyone. Now I need to find an alternative use for this extra can of shaving cream. Seems like a shame to waste it.

            I've just been using a bit of dr. bronner's soap instead of cream for a decade or so, works well.

              Found this this morning: Not Ready For No 'Poo? Try Sorta 'Poo With Coconut Milk and Castille | Crunchy Betty

              Comments say it's not only great for shampoo, but also works great as shaving cream. Worth a shot, I guess, if you want something that foams and soothes.
