I am looking to expand my variety of soaps. Vegan wise, I have used PDP 63 & MDC. Both are very nice with the only complaint being post shave that my skin is more dry. MWF having tallow and lanolin leaves me with the best post shave feel of any soap I have used. Which vegan soaps leave you with a great post shave feel?

Sapone Di Paolo are fantastic soaps with about as good of a post shave feel as you can get. Paolo's balms are the best available, IMO.

I also enjoy La Savonnière du Moulin (has donkey milk, so not strictly vegan), Soap Commander, JabonMan, and Le Père Lucien.

I have no problem recommending Penhaligon's shaving soaps. They took out the tallow and created a great reformulation. The current fragrance offerings are Blenheim Bouquet, Sartorial, and Bayolea shaving soaps.

Jabonman/Eufros, Sapone Di Paolo, Nuavia, and Le Pere Lucien are excellent.

I agree, Gary. These aren't mentioned very often, and when they are, it's often in negative terms. I think their new formulation performs well, and I see little difference between their older tallow formulation and their current one, and I love their scents. I do wish they still had their older wooden bowls, as the new ones appear to be cheaply made.

Sapone dei Paolo and Wholly Kaw are nice ones. We has both vegan and tallow.  Not sure if Viking has a vegan soap but their tallow is great stuff.

Viking has recently come out with some vegan soaps.

Midnight and two, it's the best soap I've tried vegan or not. I've used Mystic Waters, CRSW select v.2 and B&M all of those are known to give a great post shave feel and Midnight and Two is in that league, honestly I think I even prefer to them as it gives a bit different of a feeling since there's no lanolin in it but it's every bit as good. I've found its performance to be nearly 10's across the board with no weakness, I'd post lather pictures but I don't think I can? but it goes on thick, great cushion, great protection and it's very slick. Their aftershaves are awesome too.

Savon de Volcans and Le Pere Lucien.

Yes, I know, I'm repeating myself.

Nuavia soaps are also great, but they're more expensive.

Razor Master soaps are also great performers, I think they contain lanolin but I'm not sure on that. Not all of them have I think.

Wickham 1912. Amazing soaps, I have the Club Cola, a really nice scent.

I will throw in Brutalt Bra, Meißner Tremonia, LA Shaving Soap (the new "black" formula), and Saponificio Varesino.

Nuavia

Los Angeles Shaving Soap Co. (All of his soaps are vegan, the 'Black' soaps excell in performance)

Saponificio Varesino

Sapone Di Paolo

Wholly Kaw (they now offer tallow versions alongside their vegan formula)

I know there's more but those came to mind immediately. I'll edit to add as I remember more.
