Red, green, white or blue? What's the consensus here?

I have used the green and white (pot) with excellent results - they also make a red (sandalwood). Great, slick, comfortable lather; pleasant scents. To me, a very good value.

Is there any difference other than scent?

The Blue lathers up quite nicely. Very subtle scent and cooling effect.

For me, no. Same soap consistency in the pot; each lathered consistently.

That's what I thought, thanks Ed. I've only used the traditional version and darn good stuff it is.

I have green and a tube of the Blue. Blue seems to have been developed as another alternative to the menthol eucalpytus of the original. Yes, I agree all of them are happily the same in terms of performance.

I really enjoy both the original green (you need to appreciate menthol for this one) and the sandalwood (red). Both perform very well and have a price point that allows for a pint on the way home.

Yeah, the menthol thing was what prevented me from becoming a repeat customer, otherwise good stuff.

I use red, green, and white. I like all three and really enjoy the scent of the white.
