I thought I'd give this soap one more chance just in case I might have been too harsh, but no, I wasn't.
It is average, well below average when it comes to slickness and glide. 
I pulled out the the puck, to be used as a shower soap and the nice wooden bowl is going to house something better, probably Mike's.

Soft or hard water nav?  Lather looks good.

I've used it in medium hard water but usually bottled water.

It performed well in both but of course optionally with bottled water... As do all my soaps.

I just received the Cuban Cedar & Lime and the Spanish Fig & Nutmeg soaps today... and used the former for today's shave.

The scent is very nice and the soap did a great job with protection and soft skin feel...and is very slick. I'm looking forward to using it again.

These soaps have been on my radar for a long time.  The scents sound great but the reviews I've read have made my hold off on making a purchase.  Are the ingredients the same as the older versions of the soap?

Not sure what they were... But I can tell you it makes lather (not suds). Usually when a formula starts with Sodium Palmate, you get suds...but not with this one...you get lather.

Thanks... not sure why the pics were so dark though, sorry bout that.

Stepping back one day removed, I prefer the Cuban Cedar & Lime.

The Spanish Fig & Nutmeg smells nice too, but it reminds me too much of GFT Coconut Oil soap, which for me just brings back bad memories... but I'm sure some guys will prefer the Fig. It's not a bad scent, just not for me.

You don't suppose Trumpers will clear their brain and switch suppliers?  Love trumpers scents.  Really don't like their sodium first ingredients performance.  I know,Phil sells a Salters Lavendar puck that's sodium palmate first and by all reports that one lathers well too.  Anyone compare the ingredients label?

... and Valobra/AoS tallow/C&S start with Sodium Tallowate.  So it is more evidence that one ingredient does not tell the whole story.

You're saying this one is an exception and has good lather?

Wait haven't we spent a lot of time and threads discussing how the C&E soap version with sodium palmate as the first ingredient to be a great performer?


No, always Potassium Palmate is discussed as the good version.

(But my favorite, Sweet Almond Oil, actually has Sodium Palmate first. That's the only other "good" Sodium Palmate first soap I know about (other than the PdP no.63, I mentioned above).
I'm  glad to hear that because I bought a refill puck of C&E's Sienna a little  while back and was upset because,  I know now, I had my info backwards and almost threw it out. It's  almost time to put it in the bowl.
