Re: Who still regularly uses 3Ts / DRH / Pens soap/cream

After having strayed away trying out the next new star I came back to Harris and MWF (and Cella ) as my go to soaps. As for creams I prefer Trumper's due to the scent.

Re: Mitchell's Wool Fat

Most likely there's something in the fragrance thats the cause of the irritation.

Does the Kent version have a different scent than MWF?

Re: Floris soaps performance and scents

Last summer I bought their JF soap on summer sale in their Jarmyn Street shop. No trouble with the lather from the soap and I really enjoy the scent.

Re: Backups for soaps and creams, or not?

I buy one or two back-ups of soaps or creams that I really like, just in case. ;)
I've switched more towards creams now, just to get through it all...

Re: L'Occitane Cade Shaving Cream & Soap

I'm half way through a tube of the Cade shaving Cream. I'm not a fan of the scent, much prefer the Cade scent of the soap. I find the cream a bit dense and heavy to work with a brush. It doesn't burst into a lather, but comes along gradually. it reminds me of TGR shaving cream in that aspect. The sh...

Re: Proraso Pre Shave

I use the oatmeal Pre Shave. I wet my face, rub it in and then leave it on my face and lather over. Works very well for me as I get a closer shave, especially along and below the jawline. I also use Trumper's Skin Food the same way and for the same reason and that works well too. I've also noticed s...

Re: the FAT

The bottom of my ceramic dish suddenly popped into view last week. While getting a new puck out from my stash I found whats left (about half) of my original cake of Harris Almond. The scent was still strong, much stronger than the newer offerings. A wicked thought crossed my mind and I put it in the...

Re: Just when you think you've got it figured out ---

I am slowly switching myself over from soaps to creams in the hope that I'll use them up quicker and so be able to by more :)

Re: Harris Sandalwood shaving soap

I have had two shaves with the Sandalwood cream now and the cream performes as expected from D.R. Harris, top notch. I picked up the tube from Connaught this time round as heavily scented creams and soaps, especially the sandalwood type, tend to irritate my skin. No such problems yet :) The cream is...

Re: What's today's soap or cream?

Geo. F. Trumper's Rose Shaving Cream I've been thinking my tub only has a week left, but the weeks just keep going by. Didn't care much for this rose scent in the beginning, but it's grown on me with continuous use. Next in line is T&H's so I get to do a back to back comparison. I just need to finis...
