Great shaving soap.

Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, Irish Coffee, 4oz. I first found out about this soap when browsing through WCS's soap samplers. I had never even thought about a coffee scented soap but I love coffee and occasionally will have an Irish coffee as well so I was definitely intrigued. I read all the reviews I could find and browsed the maker's homepage. Ingredirects include: coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba and glycerin. With all that and a great scent to boot, I skipped the sample and ordered a full size tub. A few swirls to load my silvertip in the tub, a few seconds in my lather mug with a little hot water and I quickly had a thick, luxurious lather - and way more of it than I needed for a three pass shave. Post shave impressions: my skin is smooth, well hydrated and not a hit of razor irritation. Definitely a soap I'll keep in my rotation and it's a nice change from my other scents.

Reef Point Shaving Soap, Earl Grey and Ginger The product description by WCS is spot on, this is one of the best shave soaps I've used in nearly 15 years of wet shaving. The soap loads easily with a few swirls of my damp, pure badger Shavemac and a few drops of warm water. Face lathering (something I rarely do) nearly exploded into thick, rich lather that had my R41 gliding effortlessly and my skin felt perfectly soft with zero razor burn. This is obviously created by someone who knows first hand what sensitive skin needs for a comfortable shave. The scent is fairly faint (as is the natural of Earl Grey tea) with a light, smoky aroma brightened by the ginger. I didn't detect any bergamot notes but I'm a longtime smoker so others might pick up on it easier. Since I didn't have the matching AS splash or balm, I used my normal witch hazel and a bergamot splash and had a wonderfully comfortable experience, I shaved at 9:00am and my skin still felt smooth and moisturized when I went to bed that night.

I wish Reef Point had been available back when I started wet shaving but it will be a constant in my shave den from now on.

Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, Cape Verde Excellent soap with great lather and slickness. This soap allows for a very close shave that's irratation free. The scent is one of my favorites and I"ve probably tried 100 different soaps. Check it out you won't be disappointed.

Stirling Soap Company Shave Soap, Executive Man This soap lathers well and contributes to a nice smooth shave. As a long time Tabac user, I thought I'd try something new. The Stirling Executive Man works well but the scent is a bit disappointing becausebit is so light as to be indiscernible. .

Midnight & Two Shaving Soap, Citrus Island The shave was great. The scent from the tin is poor but good when latherd up. Nothing memorable (IMO). The ingredients is where this product shines and why it asks the price it dose. I like the shave, I’m not in love with the scent (And I like citrus shaves). This soap would probably go well with whatever your favorite after splash is.
