I am fairly new to wet shaving with a DE safety razor and am looking for thoughts on some of your favorite citrus scent shaving soaps.  I am looking into brands like Stirling, Mystic Waters, Soap Commander and others which seem to be great for sensitive skin.  I also recently read a great review of Lemomelon from The Shave Shop Online, please let me know if you have tried it as well.  Thanks!

My current "rotation" is heavily citrus-based:
  • Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime (fresh limes)
  • Catie's Bubbles Inspirazione di Parma (AdP Colonia dupe)
  • B&M Solarion (spicy citrus)
Apart from these I can recommend Maggard Limes & Bergamot and Dr. Jon's Hydra (or Arctic Hydra if you like menthol).

Another vote for Hydra.  The Hydra AS is top notch stuff as well, a citrus garden explosion. 

Anyone tried Stirling Island Man?

CRSW Citrus is my recommendation. Great post shave, slick and loads of cushion. Perfect for sensitive skin as there is no coconut or palm which can be very drying and especially so when both are used in the same soap. 

Mikes Lime is another good one, a notch below the CRSW in performance but not far off. 

I happen to have a pot of CRSW Limenthol on it's way and from the reports I've been seeing I should be very happy.

Two Mystic Waters scents:  Lime, and Rosalimone

One CRSW scent:  Citrus   (never tried Limenthol, I'm not a big fan of menthol in soaps)

One B&M Latha scent:  Limon 



These are all outstanding.

I'll be adding a grapefruit fragrance with light floral overtones, and a raspberry/lemon soap too.

I am leaning toward trying out the Citrus from CRSW and also will definitely be ordering a bunch of samples from Mystic Waters soon because there are too many good choices to pick just one.  I have heard nothing but outstanding reviews from MW.  Looking forward to trying out both of your new soap scents Michelle!  They sound fantastic!
