The Trumper Trek

Milled potassium soap pucks are as hard as guess what?

Wait, I just noticed the ingredient list is that of the cream, vendor website error. Water, stearic acid, . . ., identical ingredient list of the Baume.be cream (and of most creams, Proraso etc.).

But please let us know when you get it, and before I start babbling about potassium soaps to strangers in the street 😵‍💫.

Well that’s a bummer. I’ll probably return it if they’re still using the old formula.
 
I just ordered 4 different Geo F Trumper hard shaving soaps: Limes, Sandalwood, Eucris and Rose. And I am determined to (one way or another) prove that these SOB's can lather as well as any other soap despite their recent reputation as worthless-performing soaps. I'm going to first try loading a damp (post bloom) puck with an even dryer damp brush and load it even more then MWF till its a paste like consistency that will respond beautifully to tiny dips of water. I'm on a mission to prove these soaps can lather super well and that I didn't waste a lot of $$$. Wish me luck (or sobriety ;) )!

Sad to report that the ingredient list on the soap did not match the ingredient list on the website. Here’s a picture of the ingredient list on the box. This will be returned to the seller.

That’s too bad, you can always try your Baume.be soap, otherwise it smells really nice, makes a luxurious shower soap.

What happened to Pedigree who started this thread a couple weeks ago? He was to try lathering Trumper soaps and report back.

I've been super busy lately, haven't really had a chance to do much, haven't even shaved lately. But it is on my to-do list in the coming days.
