When I was a child my father would let me "shave" using his blade less butterfly razor and nearly an inch of aerosol can cream lathered on my face. When I grew up and began shaving for real I still over lathered but gradually learned how less is more. I am so grateful that West Coast offers Truefitt & Hill shaving soaps.
I was first gifted one of their soaps by someone that had traveled across the pond. On first use I began to appreciate the simplicity of soap in a bowl as opposed to cream. It lathers up very nicely yet you will not get a foam like those you do using tubed or canned or from a bowl/tub cream. That being said though, I get an exceptional frothy lather. One full brush gives me enough for two complete passes/shaves. For those that may question the value or lather my suggestion would be to use a more stiff shaving brush as do I for this product. I wet my brush, squeeze out most of the excess water, and whisk the soap briskly. Put a little elbow grease into it. In seconds I have what I need. Plenty of froth to schmear my face twice with a thinner yet highly effective and extremely protective coat of lather.
Not only do Truefitt & Hill shaving soaps exceed my expectations, their scented varieties are fragrant but subtle and they are very well worth their cost. These soaps last an extremely long time. I also value their creams in a bowl/tub for some variety and comparable quality.
Truefitt & Hill will undoubtedly help you define luxury shaving and assist in helping you get the most incredible shave possible.
Thank you W.C.S.!
