How are Trumpers shaving soaps these days (2018 soon 2019), are they latherable?

Goodness knows. I have shelves full of soaps, but I do not replace them on a yearly basis.

I just have to purchase a new cake then! :) I wish that these firms actually would tell us when they change things, but I guess that is too much to ask for though.

Olle, please let us know how you get on with the Trumpers soaps. I purchased a puck of Eucris some time ago, and while the scent was fantastic its lathering capabilities left something to be desired. (OK, a *lot* to be desired.) I used up the puck in the shower.

I did get a bottle of Eucris EDT just a couple of days ago. Merry Christmas to me!!

I'll be eager to learn of your results. My experience with these soaps has been less than acceptable.

+1
I'd also love to know the current status of trumpers soaps.

If anyone does post a review, please also post the ingredients, batch number/manufacture date so we can figure out if it's a reformulated soap.

I’ve never been overly impressed with the lathering performance of Trumper soaps (yes, blasphemy...). Of course, I don’t recall ever using Trumper back when it was tallowated (if that’s a word...lol).

Their first veggie formula after dropping tallow was killer!
They reformulated again and everything went down the crapper!
