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
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.
...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 ...
