I was in the store the other day and I saw that they have the soap refills for like $12. Is this a decent soap and has anyone tried it? I've used the Williams puck for $1 and it's soso, is this 12 times better?

It's a winner, especially the new formula:

This is one of the soaps that surprised me...primarily because I wasn't expecting much from a $12 soap at the mall. I seem to recall purchasing it just to add more $ to whatever my wife was buying so she could get a free gift Rolleyes. I find the scent and performance to be excellent. Very easy to lather as well and face feels great post-shave.

I've been wet shaving for over a decade now, and I've never tried Williams so I can't make a comparison.

No hint needed. If you have a L'Occitane Boutique just take her in there. The wonderful scents will relax her, then you can point out the shaving soap you want is the least expensive product in the store.

Not when you get the bowl too! $50 bucks for both at my local stor - I was a little surprised. I thought the soap came in the dish for the 3x dollars and then when I was corrected they didn't even have the soaps in stock. Sounds like it's worth it though, haven't heard much negative about it.

The bowl is definitely worth the purchase, IMO. I know some 2 to 3 years back there were some issues with black spots developing inside the bowl, but this has been solved.
The soap is must, if only to experience that fabulous juniper scent. Again, previous formulations were a bit finicky in lather building. It took me a few attempts 3 years ago to get this soap to perform. Only the scent kept me going. It worked out eventually. The new formulation, and I can't speak from personal experience, is supposed to lather quite easily.
Overall, a soap of exceptional quality and intoxicating scent. Enjoy.

Agreed, the bowl is worth it. I bought the bowl first with no intention of getting the soap. My wife mentioned that L'Occitane products are of great quality and upon her urging got the soap. I never regret getting the soap, it's one of the best performer, easy to lather and the juniper scent is really nice.

In my country I paid 20$ for the soap. I have the old version which is a bit tricky to lather but worth it if I get the right water/soap ratio right . I will finish it before buy the new version.

Cade is a staple in my rotation. It is an excellent performer and I find myself reaching for it quite often! It lathers quite nicely and always protects my face, even when my technique is not up to snuff.

The soap and bowl are a must, and you'll hit a home run if you follow up with Cade ASB.

I pulled out the Cade tonight and forgot how much I love this soap. Easily one of my favorites. It produces lather so quickly, it smells AMAZING and the stainless bowl just tops off the whole experience. Love Cade.

I put it in the top tier, on par with MDC and the other big names.
