I want to show you how I lather with a triple milled shaving soap.

I'm going to be using two very famous UK made shaving soaps : the Geo F Trumper Rose and Almond ones 

I got both of them at Bullgoose Shaving for a crazy price (flash sale) : https://bullgooseshaving.com/collections/geo-f-trumper

The Rose one has the Pottasium Palmate as first ingredient and the Almond has the Sodium Palmate as first ingredient.

Will they lather ? You bet they will ! There's only one secret : to load the brush with the soap like there's no tomorrow.

I also picked up the Trumper soap in Violet at Bullgoose. It is definitely the hardest soap I have ever used, but it lathers very well when you kind of figure it out. I have used it twice so far and I'm sure it will get better as I use it more. I definitely have to load the brush reasonably aggressively.

Nice video, Teiste.  The potassium palmate v. sodium palmate debate goes on.  

I agree that the BullGoose sale of Trumper soaps has crazy prices one cannot pass up.  I picked up a Eucris in the wood bowl, and the bowl alone was worth the price.  All that remains are the Trumper violet shaving soap refills, which are a total bargain at $5.00.  I'm surprised any of these remain in stock.

How's been your shaved with it ?

Does it smells very strong ?

The Eucris soap bowl is a piece of art for being a wooden bowl.

Good choice , my friend

I bought the rise, but found it difficult to get a lather that didn't vanish! However, grated and mixed with cella,  the results were really excellent.

My shaves have been great. This formula lists potassium palmate and sodium palmate as the first two ingredients. The first time I used it, I didn't realize there was a film or some type of covering over the soap and I had a very hard time getting lather out of it obviously. Even as thin as the lather was, the shave was still very good, smooth with no irritation. When I was using it and realized it had to film on it, I took it off and it definitely lathered much better (obviously). The smell is definitely on the milder side. You can definitely smell it, but it doesn't overpower.

Thanks Teiste, I have zero problems with triple milled soaps, but it's always fun to watch your videos. I can almost smell the roses.
