Trumper's Limes Soap

Item Description

This is an excellent triple milled shaving soap. It makes great slippery lather however the scent is not really lime. I can tell its in there but its more of a clean quality smelling soap with a touch of lime/citrus. I got this with the wooden bowl and it is top quality as well. I'm guessing its mahogany. Anyway the soap has been used many times and looks pretty much like the day I got it. The biggest knock is the label on the bowl which is paper. :confused: Don't get it wet or it could fall off. The label should have been some non paper water proof material. Not a big deal and doesn't effect the shaving. I would recommend this soap to someone looking to try a triple milled soap but not to someone looking for a lime scent like a QED glycerin lime soap.

Pros: comes in a cool box, works well enough, lasts forever
Cons: quite a strong, not-really-lime scent, not very 'slick', a bit pricey
Having owned Trumpers Violet soap in the past (and being unimpressed with the overpowering 'Granny's bathroom scent) I wanted to give Limes a try and see if it was any different. It does of course smell different but equally intense...and really nothing like limes in my opinion. The performance is fairly standard though I don't find it as lubricating or slick as some other less-pricey soaps. Overall I can't say I'm blown away by Trumpers soaps...and unless you absolutely love the smell I wouldn't recommend them, especially with so many great alternatives out there.

Bottom line is that this stuff is good shaving soap but performs no better than, say, Speick or Proraso. Added to the fact that it smells quite perfumey (and not in a limey kind of way) and is $18 I would advise that you look elsewhere.

I really wanted to like this one as I'm a sucker for anything lime. I have and like GFT Coconut, Rose and Violet.

Price: Expensive but very good quality.

Quality: As good as non-tallow can get.

Scent: Smells like bottled lime juice, not fresh lime which is what I prefer.

Lather: Maybe I have a dud puck but this one doesn't perform like my other GFT soaps.

Efficacy: Same as the lather.

Moisturizing: About average for a puck of soap.

Gents, this is a quality soap. Its weakness is what I love most about it...the scent. I wanted a lime that wasn't in your face....but strong enough to let you know you're shaving with a lime soap. The best way to peg the scent on this one is a "floral clean lime" smell. Very refreshing!

Performance is what you would expect from a GFT product. Easy to lather, great slick cushioning, & washes off the razor easily.

I received the refill for my bowl so I cant comment on the wood bowl.

Considering the previous comments on the longevity of this soap.....the price is a bargain!

Now go order yourself a puck of GFT Limes.....:thumbup:
