Van Der Hagen Luxury Scented Soap

Item Description

Van Der Hagen's new Luxury soap is NOT like their regular versions! Even though it is glycerin based, it also has shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter, which definately adds to its slickness. I shaved with no additional additives to my lather, and it performed as if I had.

It quickly builds into a VERY slick, protective lather. It's scent is lightly masculine, with a hint of cucumber. Very nice and refreshing. My Merkur 1904 with Derby Extra blade, danced over my face quite smoothly. If you think this soap is like their older versions, you'll be pleasantly surprised... I know I was.

I'm very pleased with VDH's new offering here.

Pros: Nice lather, slickness, and scent.
Cons: Not a fan of the plastic tub container it comes in.
This was the very first soap I used when I started DE shaving. The scent is very unique to me I guess for that reason. It's very unmistakable in a good way. I find it easy to lather and the slickness is great. It's a hard soap and after trying softer soaps I find that i actually prefer hard soaps. The only negative for me is the plastic tub the puck comes in. I find it a bit clumsy to lather from so I usually put it in a bowl. Wish it came in a container more similar to Arko but this certainly isn't a showstopper. It's a great soap at a great price.

Pros: Available everywhere, Nice scent, thick lather, nice protection to the skin with ATG shaving, cheap
Cons: None
I'm new to de shaving and this came with a kit that I had purchased to get started. I've used a few other shave soaps before I got started with de shaving, and I found that this soap works rather well for me.

The scent is very pleasant.... its hard to describe, really. It says on the back of the box that it has shea butter and mango butter, so I guess that the combinations together create a really unique smell...neither of the two main scents were overpowering.

I like the way this soap lathers....it isn't to hard to get a nice, thick lather, and it feels like it gives nice protection to the skin.

Pros: Easy to find, inexpensive, and just plain works
Cons: none
Because I'm lazy and for some reason wouldn't order shaving soap off the internet I've been using this since it came out a year or so ago. Has been my go to soap until recently when I broke down and ordered some Mickey Lee and some Proraso, which are better scent and moisturizing wise but not by too much! This newer Luxury offering is some plain'ol good shaving soap!
