Shaving "Cream"

I originally was using half coconut oil, half olive oil for shaving and it worked fine, but last night when I was mixing it, I messed with it and came out with this:
1 part olive oil to 3 parts coconut oil and 3 tablespoons of honey (FYI, I didn't measure it, I just eye balled it, so I am guesstimating here). The honey thickens it and moisturizes. You can add more honey if you use more oil than I did, or if you want it thicker. Just eye ball it. I mixed it really well for 5 minutes but still had to shake it before using it. I am going to experiment using lecithin powder or granules next time to emulsify it.
I put it in a pump bottle (you know, like one for hand soap) and use it that way.
I like this so much better than any shaving cream or gel I have ever used.

    No, not really.
    I think it depends on how much you put in as to if it is sticky. I put in only enough to thicken it so it wasn't very runny.
