i have to say that i am not really that impressed with dr harris almond soap at all. it's distinctly average in my book. there are a number of other dr harris products, particularly their aftershaves, which i think are top notch, but their shaving soap is just meh.

FWIW I think the closest facsimile of the older Milk that is still being produced is the ( surprise ! ) Clinique Post Shave Healer.
