Re: Williams Mug Shaving Soap is still horrible

First of all, you are lucky enough to have such wonderful soap there :) Seriously. My experience with soaps is relative small, because I use mostly creams. But I do love Williams (I speak only about modern version, never tried vintage one). My water is also hard and yes, the lather is maybe not that...

Re: Derby Blades, A Review

Derby Extra (vertical) are one of my goto blades. They are cheap enough and work fine in most of my razors.
I also tried Premium, which are even slightly better, and I believe Ursa are also OK. As always YMMV :)

Re: Allergic reaction from Tweex soap?

I haven`t shave oil or brushless cream in my country but : After experiments I realized that : Palmolive Classic shave cream (EU version), Palmolive soap stick and Williams mug soap works pretty well without any irritation. Williams is the best of them. So, I suppose the problem may be the fragrance?

Re: Allergic reaction from Tweex soap?

I hate to recommend this, but it sounds like you might be better off using a shave oil or a brushless shave cream instead of soap. Psoriasis loves oil and grease, and gets extremely itchy when dried by soaps or detergents. Concoctions like Edge gel might also work as they have very little detergent...

Re: Allergic reaction from Tweex soap?

Thanks !
Unfortunately I have similar reaction with Arko, Tabac, Palmolive, Wilkinson Sword. Maybe the fragance is the reason, and I should find unscented soap.
Interestingly I haven`t problems with shaving foams. The creams are somewhere between - still cause the red blotches but not that strong.

Allergic reaction from Tweex soap?

Hello friends, today I used for first time Tweex shave stick. It is similar like Arko, with somehow strongest and industrial smell. I have psoriasis, and realized, that my skin got red and itchy when I applied the lather. Same thing when I other tallow based soaps, but not sure from all or particula...

Actually we haven`t local drugstores here, which sell brushes, except DM with cheap models of Omega.

Re: How did you discover wetshaving?

I myself started back in 2007, when in my local stores haven`t disposables with one blade (like Bic Metal), and I just bought some Wilkinson Sword blades. Loaded a blade in my dad`s old safety razor (bulgarian, copy of Gillette Super Speed) and was so impressed with the comfort of shave, so I decide...
