Setting aside scent as it's mostly subjective, what are your top 5 performing soaps and creams?

For the moment I'd say:

Pens Creams
CRSW
SV
B&M
MdC

1.) Haslinger - by a long shot. It was nice to see Rudy Vey yesterday call Haslinger the best modern soap made today. I have bought & used most soaps discussed on the boards & nothing tops its performance imo. 

2.) Brutalt Bra Barbersape
3.) Mystic Waters
4.) SdM
5.) Tabac

No Dave but it's all in good fun as our 'performance' tastes can change as posted by myself, Alex and Richard above! Wink

That's a tough question because I have many great performing soaps and creams. I am not buying average performers, thanks to the good reviews here in TSN.

Let me think about it...
  • Pannacrema
  • Barrister & Mann
  • Le Pere Lucien
  • Savon de Volcans
  • Valobra
These are my Top 5s at this time. But I haven't tried the I Coloniali yet, maybe later this day or tomorrow. I have a good feeling about this soap!

One thing I thought about recently was I have moved away from Vegan soaps during the winter months and that my favorite soaps will change during the warmer months.

Been using CRSW and B&M as they give me a bit more protection in the post shave but as the weather becomes more gentle, less wind, more dry, and hotter, I will pull out the Le Pére Lucien and Saponificio Varesino soaps more.

Tend to this as well - more Tallow in the winter, more veggie in the summer!
