I saw a kg block of this soap for £30 and wondered if anyone had tried it.
indeed tried it a few years back.
nice soap. however, imho, not appreciably better than cella brick.
almond scent of two is almost identical; virtually same lather and shave performance.
btw, these bricks are 'kilo' as in in original molded volume, not final weight.
and, where did you see the listing?
I think he may be referring to Antica Barberia Mondial.
Antica Barberia Original Citrus Mondial Professional Shaving Cream 1KG - Gifts&Care
I haven't tried this soap, but I am VERY interested. Especially the citrus scent. I check on it every once in a while but it always seems to be out of stock. I could try the smaller 150ml container, but it's $17. The Kg is listed for only $10 more at $27. I know it's ridiculous reasoning as I really do not need another Kilo of soap.
Connaught UK sells it.
And in a much smaller size.
It's a very nice soap. Not Grooming Dept, but very nice. One of my favorites of the Italian soaps, but it's not SV.
I would call it a soap (not a shaving cream).
This is NOT Antica Barbiera Colla! Just so that you know....
If he saw a kilo of ABC for 30 pounds I'd like to know where. Wouldn't that be a steal?
I've tried ABC soap and liked it, but not enough to pay for more than the sample size I'd purchased to try it. For that kilo price I might reconsider.
I found a link but it's in Italy... Goof luck with the shipping lol.
Crema da barba Mondial Antica Barberia 1 Kg | Dolcimascolo Roma
We're talking two different soaps - AB Mondial and AB Colla - both Italian, but not in the same price category at all.
AB Mondial is available at Connaught, too, link. The price is right. Small size; link.
ABC soap is another matter. It's a lot more expensive. Link. What, maybe ten times what ABM costs?
Then £30 is a steal.
Never buy a kilo without first trying. Really.
I agree with @Macfrommichigan on this.
+2! Great concept!!
It would definitely be a steal if it was £30 for a kilo of ABC.
Mondial on the other hand seems to be a different and a less expensive brand, probably along the lines of Cella and P.160
