Williams and Vanderhagen are the two shaving soaps that are sold in my local grocery store. If I could not order online, those are the only two I would ever use. I've tried Williams but not VDH. What do you think of it?
I didn't know they made blades. I've seen the "shaving kits" (bowl, brush, and soap) and their soap. They probably make a lot more things than I know from the grocery store. I was surprised at all that Pinaud Clubman made when I went to their website. It the store here, they have only the one aftershave.I've used their blades and they shaved nicely with my Tatara
That's true, I love Grey Flannel and have a couple of bottles of the cologne and a bottle of aftershave balm.It's not really soap, per se, in the chemical sense, and appears to be based on a melt and pour base that is mostly surfactants and foaming agents.
That said, it lathers ok and it shaves ok. So, for me it is meh.
I actually like the scent of VdH Deluxe, which is somewhat similar to the classic Grey flannel cologne.
When you can get a tub of Poraso from ebay for less than $8 shipped it's hard to justify that price....The soap was well-priced at around $2-3/puck. Unfortunately, the price has now jumped to $7/puck. For that price, there are other better shave soap options ...
