If you're talking about the Italian Barbershop, it's just released and is available on the Leperelucien website.
If you are talking about SDV / SDM, they are still available at some resellers or on the site of their own soap factory for SDV.
Nicolas, I'm referring to Lainess. I know I wasn't very specific, sorry.

...you may want to try Lainess soaps.  Donkey Milk + LPL =  Biggrin



Lainess is the Better French soap IMO   Biggrin

I am waiting for my Lainess, 7 days out and the tracking number that was sent does not show up in France or the US. Hoping to receive it soon.

Cheers, Steve

Very well, I will test this soap as soon as I have the opportunity. Thank you for your recommendations.

We totally agree, Lainess remains my best shaving soap.



I look forward to hearing your thoughts on SdM

Me too. If you can get 40% that's great. 30% is the normal now I believe.

In your place I would contact the seller specifying your problem with the tracking number

I got Cyril on the phone, he crumbles under the controls (buy) to send but will not forget anyone.

I think it will take more time to answer tomorrow, it does not stop since Friday.

In our French forum, we no longer talk about SDMs and SDVs since January 2016. The LPLs have evolved well in 2016 and the majority of our members have abandoned SDM and SDV in favor of LPLs with shea butter / tallow or Lainess.
I take your suggestion into account and I will test on occasion these two soaps that are unknown to me. As soon as possible, i will test the pt'i meusien (SDM).
Right now I'm waiting for two tallow and steel.

It's not easy to load a brush, half of the foam goes to your hands or outside the bowl making a real mess. LPL can do better IMO, without trying to copy another French artisan( hard soap, same container). Just my opinion.

And I miss the days when LPL soaps used to contain only EO and not FO...

Very nice photos, by the way! You seem to enjoy LPL/ French products. I am looking forward to your reviews of more products from other countries or continents!

I also prefer containers of 200 grams. As for spoiling half of the foam, if you charge your shaving brush, soap tilted down, then you will not have this problem anymore.

Always load the shaving brush, soap down and shaving brush up :

This is a great soap with a wonderful scent but I do find myself wishing for a larger container. Loading a large brush like my Paladin Lotus was fairly messy. I was able to pinch the bristles with my fingers and load it ok. I agree with the OP, this soap works best with a good amount of water. For now I may just cut of a chunk and add it to one of the empty bowls I have and work up a lather there as opposed to trying to load and face lather.

Totally agree that small containers are never very practical. Cyril is aware of this, but is always looking for better containers without necessarily falling into the too banal containers found in all US brands.

I don’t understand this comment, the current containers are absolutely unremarkable in every way. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

For this soap precisely actually. The 98 grams metal LPL containers are clearly the image of the brand, however, and are not more convenient but it will standardize its metal containers in 150 grams in the coming months.
