I wouldn't even put it on the list, had very little interest in it, but for $6 delivered along with Shavemac brushes I gave it a shot. Most of the scents were not interesting to me so I got a Meeresalgen (seaweed) Wink
Although not expensive, 60g of soap for $6 is not cheap either, the puck is very small and you have to either hold it in one hand while lathering or grate/mold it into a container.
Most reviews were positive and I did not imagine anything going wrong. I was wrong, AGAIN! My shave was rough today and I blame it on the soap Biggrin
This soap just does NOT work for me. It has very unique and interesting scent, nice blue color, lathers great, but it lacks cushioning and slickness, I felt little protection from the blade.
Coming soon to the BST near you...

It seemed like everyone has been praising this soap. I've been curious about it.

Yeah I thought so too.

Was going to order three Ewe's milk one.

I guess good larger but mediocre slick is a valid point.
It'd have been acceptable if it were the other way round.

It may work for some, but there are better choices out there.

Speaking of better choices Laughing1

Disappointed to hear of your experience with Haslinger. I had read good things about it, and bought two pucks which I have not used yet. Hmmmmm

Now, onto the bacon shaving cream in your last post -- can I eat it? What will my cardiologist say? Will it send my blood work off the charts? Maybe I should just try it, and report it to the doc later, and he can publish an article in a medical journal.

This is a great example of YMMV. I am one of the Haslinger aficionados, and have good results with this soap. Other highly touted soaps have been disappointing for me ... go figure!

I've heard that bacon shaving cream performs exceptionally well with a little melted Velveeta mixed in!

This is just not kosher! Biggrin

I'm not interested in their other offerings. Only the Ewe's milk. Don't see the other offerings being as good.

Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you, I've had good luck with it. I will admit, Seaweed is the least favorite of the 3 I have but it's because of the scent not performance.

How many times did you try it?

In my experience, Haslinger needs a lot of water in the mix or else it will make my razor skip. Wet and shiny lather makes for slickness.
I love the stuff. Used the coconut everyday this week.
YMMV as they say

I got some Haslinger Sage and didn't care for it. I do want to try some Coconut, but I just keep forgetting to order it.

More water, definitely more water. Haslingers are very thirsty soaps. The more water, the slicker the lather gets. When the lather shines in the light, it's just right.

Yea...it does not work for me either and it sets my allergies off like nobody's business. I nearly pulled a rib cage muscle from all of the sneezing. Biggrin

I think it's excellent soap, slick and protective. I find its price a bit high unless ordered from Shavemac, as the 60g pucks are not particularly hard and get chewed through rather quickly.

The Honig and Ewe's Milk are excellent in terms of slickness and protection for me. Super easy to lather also.

I liked the lather from the Ewe's Milk, but it set my face on fire and itched like crazy

That is sad news. The allergy part I mean. Haven't tried their non sheep milk offerings, but hear they aren't as easy to lather.
