As a dedicated user of Mike's and JabonMan soaps, I consider myself an artisan soap aficionado. PannaCrema performed exceptionally well overall, and will have a permanent slot in my soap rotation.
Value is a relative term and this soap is moderately priced overall. The base price is 13.5 USD and the overall shipped price varies, depending on number of tins purchased in one order. The individual soaps are packaged in a small, sturdy plastic container. The one downside is that the diameter of these containers is rather small, for those loading directly from them. The scents are subtle, and not overpowering by any means. Lathering is astonishingly easy, relative to the other soaps I typically use. The lather provides a very good cushion, with ample slickness for smooth glide. The soap is very good in terms of moisturizing and skin care, performing comparably to Mike's, although in my opinion the JabonMan outperforms on this aspect.
Overall, the soap lives up to the reputation that has been generated on the forums in recent months ... two thumbs up here!

Thanks for the review. This soap has become #1 in my rotation with P-160 and Mikes close behind. I use OC's so lube is important to me. PannaCrema does it for me through 3-4 pass shaves Joris,FaTip, Gillette old and New. A match made in shaving heaven for me. Enjoy!Smile

Nice review. One of these days I'll have to pick up a puck when they're available to compare to my other favorite artisan soaps.

Thanks for the review. I ordered a couple of the soaps when they first hit the market and needless to say PanaCrema is quickly becoming a household name in shaving circles and for a good reason.
