Van Der Hagen - Select Shaving Soap

Item Description

I cant believe no one has reviewed this soap yet. This is the fourth soap I have tried and I have to say I am pretty impressed. It lathers up very nicely with little effort. You dont need to have a good technique to get a good shave out of this soap. Excellent soap with a price to match. Can be found at many eckerds and rite aids for around 2.00 a puck. Also it melts in the microwave so you can pour it to fit into your mug. I think that this soap is ideal for beginners and is a much better "bargain" than Williams. Has a slight scent of the cologne Grey Flannel which goes away when you rinse it off. Very slick and lubricating. :thumbup1:

Pros: Available at Walmart
Cons: None
A good shaving soap, at a good price. It gives a good lather with more than adequate slickness.

I added Old Spice cologne to my puck to give it a little scent.

Pros: Easy lather, Very slick!
Cons: None
Its soap like this that makes me question why Id ever want to pay more that $2 for a cake of any other soap. For $2 at any rite-aid i can pick up a great smelling, easy to lather and very slick soap. I have tried all 3 vdh soaps, and noticed this one actually smells a tad better than the other 2. They are all pretty much equal performers, so i almost always go for the select.

I have lots of other soaps/creams, but man, when i use this stuff it always makes me wonder why i paid more for my other stuff!

Pros: Low cost
Cons: Poor lather
Worst lather I have experienced. I used both a stiff boar brush and a boar that has softened considerably and was unable to produce enough lather for a second pass. The lather was decidedly NOT rich or creamy, but only soapy.
