Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

A bit late to the party, but a year ago I was gifted Floris Elite, T&H Sandalwood and Penhaligon's Bayolea shaving soaps for my birthday. I was a bit underwhelmed and had to put on a brave face as I didn't expect much from them. To my surprise (and relief) I found my concerns were unfounded when I s...

Re: Penhalgon may be discontinuing English Fern & Douro

That's a shame. I had noticed that the English Fern had been absent from online retailers a while now, not just out of stock, but was ever hoping they would restock. No such hope now. :cry:

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...

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...
