I'm new to wetshaving so i'm looking to pick up some soaps that I wouldn't normally consider. I'm looking for anything that you're tired of or are looking to give up.

I'm mainly interested in soaps that have moisturizing properties and I dont think I want to get glycerin based soaps (no col. conk). Also, i'm not a fan of mentol (tried Proraso green and my have broke out).

If you have anything, let me know!

Tabula rasa, amazing shaving cream/soap. There's already reviews on here and on shaving101.com (this website is really good for beginners). I'd recommend the Tea or tangerine and Vetiver fragrance. If you live in the US then you can buy it from Lee'srazors.com or if you're from the EU I can DM you the e-mail of the person who actually makes the stuff.

I would highly recommend getting the samples as well. I wish I had gone this route when I first started traditional shaving as it is a great way to get to try several different products and avoid the buying/selling/trading of a bunch of full size items. Once you have found what you like then you can expand your horizons searching for similar products. Mike's Natural and Queen Charlotte both offer samples of their artisan soaps and although they can be tricky to dial in, they will both reward you with excellent lather, scents and skin care properties.
