I am trying out my second puck of this fabled, much- vaunted shaving soap, and I am FAR from feeling the love.

I know how to load a brush; the fault is not my technique. Perhaps I have Australian formulations and they are just not any good?

The result is what looks like lather, but this lasts about a minute - at most - before dissipating into a silly grey nonsense. Slick is good, but that’s the only thing going for it.

Anyone else having this experience?

I have to say how very disappointed I am.

Interestingly enough - I’ve never tried old-spice despite my father using that (and only that soap and a/s) for many years. I’ll continue to hold steady Smile

Ive have several pucks and i have had good experiences with mine. I have noticed from time to time, my lather does become foamy. I attribute this to my technique. There are times when i prefer to use hard pucks like shave sticks and load my face with soap then face lather. I generally get better results this way.

My pucks of the vintage soap are extraordinary. Right up there with vintage Williams, AoS and Yardley.

Perhaps you have a better formula. My experience so far has shown me Old Spice is pretty rubbish.

I’ll post mine tomorrow. Same formula, but different proportions and balance of ingredients. I have no doubt yours is great. Mine is garbage..

Could it be just a bad batch?

They did. WE are all talking about vintage stock. 

This might be my problem: Australian batches.

I've had a few pucks of Old Spice and I never thought it was a fantastic soap.  It was good, but not great.  Yardley on the other hand was fantastic for me.

I can't speak for all renditions, but I had one puck and it was a bubbly mess. Didn't even bother selling it, straight to the trash.
