I have tried about 35 different soaps in my 3 years of wetshaving, and so far I have yet to meet a soar.p that I just hate.  Sure that have been some my face did not like or a couple that took a few practice lathers to get the hang of, but none that I can say I would never use again.

Is there anyone who has been so offended by a soap that they would rather use some barbasol ( I actually have nothing against Barbasol, but hopefully you get the idea) and skip the brush?

Glycerin based, clear, hard soaps are hated by me. I think I gave myself both lateral and medial epicondylitis trying to make a useable lather with that stuff. If I ever meet Colonel Conk, I will serve him with my therapy bill. Winky

Never met a shaving soap I would trade for the can. If I everdo, I'll let you know.

I don't know about hate but the smell of Cella is something I really can't stand. I did manage to get through a shave or two with it and it's actually a really good soap, just that smell.......

This applies to me as well...and I will also include Cella and Institute Karite for the fact that they lit my face up like no other soaps.

No, I will keep the brush

There are soaps and creams I don't like. Scent and performance being the two main reasons.

If by "lit my face up" you mean allergies, I had the same thing from Cella that I have not seen from any other soap.  

I'm talking severe redness starting within seconds of it contacting my skin.  

I guess I'm pretty lucky that whatever is in it that sets me off doesn't seem to be in many other products.

Haven't tried Institute Karite.

I have faith that anything with Sodium Palmate (SP) as the first ingredient you will hate.

G.F. Trumper Eucris soap.  Loved the scent and may purchase the cologne,  but the soap was unlatherable useless junk.

GFT soap is absolutely dudulous. It is terrible. On a silly note, I like to give Col Conk a hard time for being a terrible soap but I use to use it all the time when I first started shaving. I also held off using a artisan soap because I couldn't stand the name of it.

For me, Bayolea shave cream.

Whilst I really enjoy the scent i just could not lather the sample up with my brush.

Some sellers describe it as a brushless cream that does not lather.  Others don't.  Bullgoose says that it should be applied with a brush.  Better stick with the soaps, this cream is confusing.

So far so good.  A couple soaps I was disappointed with the scents but nothing I hated.

Williams can make a pretty decent lather. It just requires stupid, and I mean STUPID, amounts of water to get there. Any other soap would be completely thin and runny.

Thanks Tom, I tried a few times to lather it up..gave up and applied it directly to my face and I still didn't enjoy the shaving cream. The scent is very good IMO. Must try to soap!
