I've found a complete forgotten locked away for nearly 9 months of 8 Cella (sample) shaving soap still hasn't been touch throughout my wet shaving, it's a total shame that I haven't used it and I still don't know why I bother not using Cella so it time to start using some Cella shaving soap today before this could end up in a trash bin. I find Cella shaving soap is very similar to Stirling Almond Creme shaving soap and Stirling smell a lot better then Cella, also Stirling has more slickness and much better lather than Cella.

Cella is still a great shaving soap which is pretty cheap for a soft soap, trouble is most wet shavers can be allergic to almond so please be aware before trying out Cella or you could end up in a very bad way.
