I recently tried a new shaving soap and noticed a enhanced shave. At first I thought it might have been the new brush, thicker lather, new shaving scuttle. I tried it again with a old razor, old scuttle, & old brush and came to believe it was the soap.

Has anybody else experienced this while trying new soaps?

Absolutely! Some soaps work great, while some don't. Which ones are you comparing?

There are so many variables; soap, brush, razor and blade. They all affects the result in some way - which is part of the fun Smile

An interesting effect I've noticed is that a soap that results in a half decent shave with one brush can deliver stunning result with a different brush.

I've been using Tabac for about year now and recently picked up some RazorRock Boston Tea Party. I know many people don't like the RazorRock but I got a incredible shave from it.

I went on a shopping spree bought a bunch of soaps and creams to experiment with.

For me, both TABAC & RazoRock are top quality soaps.

Some soaps and creams I use for different results I'm looking for. For example I use GFT Limes or TOBS sandalwood if I want the closest possible shave (least cushion), TOBS Rose for most protection if I've nicked myself the last time (most protection), etc.

Thats the good thing about classic wet shaving,the discovery of new items which perform better than we expected.
