Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

This thread is fairly recent, but it seems we have failed to discuss the new tallow based formula of Cyril Salter's shaving soap which is quite good, and quite economical to buy. Made in England. If you haven't tried it, I suggest giving it a try in pursuit of the best of the current shaving soaps. ...

Re: "That Lather"

Today I went for shave #2 with the tub of Morning Ghost (vetiver) shaving cream soap from Cold River Soap Works. This is an American artisan product. On my first use a couple of days ago, I mistakenly kept loading the brush on the soap longer than usual (15 seconds +/- a couple of seconds). Today I ...

Re: Vetiver

John, I'm right there with you. I've been wanting to try the Green Vetiver also. Speaking of Tabac, it lathers like a dream even with my hard water.

Today's SOTD change from the routine was the soap. It was one of Tim's hand crafted custom soaps for which I am truly grateful. Thanks Tim!

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

A good point. Seems that the recently popular CBD is a whole different animal compared to the commonly known substances that are so dangerous.

Domenico Caraceni 1913 and XPEC unscented

Two of the better shaving creams I've used. Big tubs, big lathers, big prices. These two were made in Italy several years apart. I think any one among us can name other well known shaving creams that perform this well at lower cost. As someone here remarked recently, if anyone has a favorite scent i...

Re: "That Lather"

Tim, that title is spot on and well deserved in the most positive way. Good work! I've used a lot of Palmolive but I'm never prepared for that scent, and it's a turn-off for me. My only other criticism is that being so inexpensive, I've never expected it to be slick on the final pass, and it's never...

Re: Vetiver

Gary, what was the hand soap you discovered? And how are you liking Morning Ghost? I am tempted to get Morning Ghost to go with my Guerlain Vetiver, but hate to buy it in the blind. Plus I am trying to overcome my forced introduction to hard water. (Moved into an assisted living place that doesn't ...
