Careful, it is NOT the potassium palmate version, even though it is the light blue box. I made the same mistake!! Except at "Matt quantities". Also, it does not smell the same as my JF in potassium palmate.

With Sodium Palmate (not Potassium Palmate), most people complain of "disappearing lather" or "it doesn't lather at all", things like that.
On the other hand, it's still a useable soap if you play with it enough. I have had experience with a half dozen "sodium palmate first" soaps over the past few years, so I know what to expect and what not to expect, and so I am able to get around the fact that the lather is foamy and disappointing. Once you know its limitations, you might find it prepares the face for a stellar shave.
I started the "You'll never guess" thread in early July, and revealed I shaved my head with Trumper soap in this formula. No cuts or nicks. In fact, no complaints...except maybe the look of the lather.
I still have not shaved my face with a Sodium Palmate first formula, but have really been considering doing just that for my shave-a-week.
Oops...soap-a-week. (Edit)

I bought refills. If you bought bowls they might be the PP formula.

Ron, I have the No. 89 cream in the light blue packaging. It is an excellent cream, and post shave is excellent. Another winner with aloe vera in the formulation. Im pretty sure every shave product I've tried with aloe in it has been a winner: the old XPEC, Floris cream, Spencer & Devon cream, SdBB pucks, Castle Forbes, I see a trend. TOP TOP TOP performers.
Hope the dark blue packaging is the same stuff.

Thanks, Matt....that's reassuring.  Doesn't get any better than a thumbs up from you & Claus! And I'll be sure to report back.

The new tube contains aloe vera, allantoin, and olive oil.

Sorry, I also own the light blue No. 89 tube of shaving cream.
This is expensive, but in my Top 5-Top 10 of best shaving creams I have ever tried.
It rivals Baume.be and new Acuq di Parma cream IMHO

I received my Floris #89 shave cream and aftershave balm yesterday (both new formula in dark blue tubes).  Shaved with them this morning. Initial impressions are very positive.  I'll shave with it the rest of this weekend and report back.  BTW Floris customer service and presentation/shipping are exceptional.
