as title, i was considering purchasing Mitchells Woolfat shaving soap, but the online reviews are a bit mixed, so a bit unsure wether it's worth it or not
As part of an insomnia induced shopping spree I have a puck of MWF winging its way to my doorstep, even as I type this. I've never used it before either and need another soap as about much as I need another hole in my head, but... Amazon says delivery tomorrow.as title, i was considering purchasing Mitchells Woolfat shaving soap, but the online reviews are a bit mixed, so a bit unsure whether it's worth it or not
You'll find good and bad reviews for pretty much all soaps. I tried a sample of Martin de Candre, which is one of the highly revered soaps online, and didn't get on well with it at all. I actually got better shaves with the olive oil based cold pour craft soaps that everyone loves to hate. Take every review with a pinch of salt, would be my advice. It's just someone else's personal opinion, and you'll never know whether anything works for you until you try it....but the online reviews are a bit mixed...
I've had two pucks that both just yielded bubbly foam no matter what lathering technique I tried. Might have been from a bad batch, but personally I won't be bothering with MFW again. Not when there are so many other good soaps.First puck did not work (foamy mess, tried blooming and many different methods suggested) for me whereas a sample (Never bloomed) that a fellow member sent me worked wonderfully. There seem to be some irregularities in the batches as many people share a similar result.
