Soap - CRSW Select

Stick - Palmolive

Ive never tried Valobra. From the replies it looks like I should. Which one are you talking about, the hard soap, soft soap in a box, stick or all? Also what makes it so good, slickness, scent, etc?

The soft soaps in the box are very good, but not tallow. 

Both Czech and Speake soaps are terrific (#88 and Oxford & Cambridge). Also the vintage AOS tallow Sandalwood which can be purchased on eb*y. 

From their regular hard soap line (blue plastic tubs) I like Patchouli and Fougere.

For a soap puck I choose MWF. For a stick, I put Cella into a stick container and it is the best stick I have.

I'm talking about the shaving stick and the hard soap.  Valobra also makes the soap base for C&S and they used to make the tallow soap base for AOS.  What makes it so good?  Creamy, dense, slick lather, it has a bunch of residual slickness, it's very protective, and it's an easy soap to lather.

Placed on order for the Valobra Fougere hard soap in the blue tub. Thanks for the help.
