Well,I must write, New Palmolive packaging shaving stick (this one) :

versus old Palmolive packaging shaving stick :

[Image: palmolive-classic-soap-stick__66604_zoom.jpg]

since they both share the same ingredients.There is a another Palmolive stick with Potassium Sterate as 1st ingredient but I havent tried it.

Thanks to a trade with a good member from UK (thanks Andy!) I got the chance to try out the "new Palmolive" shaving stick.I have tried Palmolive in the past (old packaging one) and it wasnt my fav stick : I found Wilkinson,La Toja,Valobra or even Erasmic with tallow,much better than Palmolive.These days I have been shaving with this new Palmolive shaving stick and I found some differences with the old one :

1.The lather is more slick than the old one,and is very noticeable.

2.Makes a thicker lather in no time.Well,the old one too,and maybe is because I have been using the Muhle silvertip fibres,but the lather is thick,much more than I remember.

3.Old Palmolive left my skin a little bit dry out after the shave.This new one doesn't.My skin wont even need after shave balm (I use it always,anyway) and I have dry skin.

Honestly I have been pretty amazed of how good this stick is working for me,and the slicker lather is something that I do appreciate a lot.

Have you noticed the same differences between the new and old packaging Palmolive shaving sticks?

Interesting thread. The sticks I purchased recently are in the dark green box at the top. It's not a bad stick all, pretty good in fact. But it couldn't match some of the other sticks I used in my recent comparison thread.

There is absolutely no difference between these sticks.

You see the "Stiftung Warentest" label? Stiftung Warentest is the leading German consumer safety group. The Palmolive stick received a rating of "2,2" back in 2004.

"Stiftung Warentest" says:
Quote:Since publication of the test itself, the product must not be changed in the characteristics tested.

Otherwise (in case of a reformulation) Palmolive would not be allowed to print the "Stiftung Warentest" label on the packaging anymore.

Close.

I have found several Palmolive sticks during my trip to England last year, both with the new and the old package. And personally, I found no differences whatsoever between the two of them.Smile

I haven't talked about any reformulation here,since the ingredients are the same in both sticks.Im just talking about different performance,one providing a slicker lather than the other,and also not suffering from dry skin after the shave when I use the "new one".
So for you are the same,or you have experiences the same results with both sticks,but I clearly haven't and this is why Im asking.

Then it must be the Muhle silvertip fibre brush,which is making the difference.
Today's shave with this new packaging stick and the Muhle was excellent once again.

I just bought 1 stick.I used the Palmolive Cream a few times.The cream was not bad at all.The smell is nice.Ingrediants are the same i think (stick and cream).

Now the stick is for use when i´m travelling.Biggrin

Interesting observation Tieste. I'm glad that the new packaging Palmolive stick works well for you.

For me, the old Palmolive stick is phenomenal soap. I haven't tried the new packaging but it seemed that the concensus on the various boards was mostly that the soaps were the same.

I'll be doing a soap order over the next few months and plan on picking up some more of the Palmolive, so will have to try the new packaging.

I have used the old packaging and currently have the new. If there is a difference I don't see it. An excellent stick at a bargain price here in the UK.

It's a bargain price anywhere honestly (but better in the UK) and is one of my favorites as well. Palmolive is such a good line of products (Menthol, Classic, Lemon, and sticks)

I havn´t found the Menthol and Lemon line here in Germany.In every discounter i had looked is always the classic.Either as stick or as cream...

Would like to have both.Lemon and Menthol.Is it comparable with Proraso?

The Menthol is a bit stronger than Proraso (and is from Italy) and the Lemon is from India.
