    La Toja Shave Stick

    La Toja Shave Stick is named after the tiny La Toja island just west of Spain that is renowned throughout Europe for its therapeutic and healing thermal spring. La Toja has been making soap from the spa's mineral salts since early in the 20th Century and it is available in literally every supermarket and convenience store in Spain. The La Toja brand makes bath soaps and gels, shaving soap and cream, and aftershave splash and balm, which all range from $2 to $7. The original name for this famous soap is "Sales de La Toja," but I personally refer to this brand as the Spanish Proraso due to its affordability and availability.

    Geo. F. Trumper Eucris Shaving Soap

    Geo. F. Trumper shaving soaps are familiar to virtually everyone who enjoys traditional wet shaving. Their shaving soaps have been produced in core fragrances, such as sandalwood, rose, and lime, until recently when they announced the introduction of Eucris to their line of shaving soaps. Because the Eucris Eau du Toilette is one of my favorite fragrances, I immediately called Lee at and asked him to send a bowl my way.

    Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap

    Mitchell's Wool Fat (MWF) is one of the most talked about shaving soaps on the market, not only because of its unique moisturizing properties, but because there seems to be a lot of different experiences in getting it to lather properly. Some say they have no problems; others say it just won't lather. This article will introduce you to MWF if you haven't tried it, and hopefully help those that have difficulty lathering this amazing soap.

    Truefitt & Hill Luxury Shaving Soap

    Triple-milled type shaving soaps are considered by many to be the upper class category of shaving products.   Their less expensive, glycerin type soaps very rarely ever perform with the same quality that the best soaps that Trumpers, D.R. Harris, and other British firms produce.  Truefitt & Hill's Luxury Shaving soap is a fine example of what a high end, luxury class soap should be.

    Geo. F. Trumper Rose Shaving Soap

    For the longest time I was turned off from rose scented shaving products. Many of the popular shaving creams had synthetic fragrances that were not enjoyable. When I began using traditional hard shaving soaps more frequently, I discovered that the rose scent of a shaving soap was more to my liking. Geo. F. Trumper’s Rose offering is among the best of the hard soaps I've used.

    The Shave Den Lemongrass Shaving Soap

    This is one of the many melt-and-pour shaving soap offerings from The Shave Den.  Although the Shave Den soaps are known for containing too much Bentonite clay, I decided to give this one a try.
