From exotic India we have Godrej shaving soap which is the cheapest thing for wetshaving, apparently. However, it is fantastic.

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Amazing lather so easily. Perfect.

Longevity of lather: 9/10--Very stable, so multi-passes are no problem.

General skincare: 6/10--Well, it's drying, but so is Williams.

Scent: 10/10--Ahhhh, so barberhoppy and nice.

Price: 10/10--Guess how much in India it is - 10 cents!

Would I buy again: 10/10--Do birds fly? Do fish swim? Thank you!

This is the "poor man's wetshaving dream come true" in India, because even somebody without an income over there can afford this soap. Many barbershops in India have started using it on their customers because it's so cheap and so good. A word of caution, use a good moisturizer after a shave with this soap because if not, your face may feel a little tight and dry. Otherwise, this soap is a treasure!

Nice review Jeff. How does this soap stack up against the Godrej cream?

Shawn, the Godrej creams have much better skincare. However, this soap is to me anyway, better for the skin than Williams. I believe Godrej created this soap for the low-income wetshavers in India, so they should have a good product for almost nothing.

Thanks Jeff. First time I tried the cream I was impressed, it's a quality cream that didn't get a mentioned much on the forums.

Thanks for the review Jeff.

Do you know where it can be bought at a nice price (10c online is almost impossible, I think) Smile ?
