Starts ok, goes flat quickly.

It took a while to work up a decent lather, and as soon as I put the brush to my face the lather went flat. Sort of like when you touch the bridge of your nose and then touch your beer and the foam goes flat. Obviously skin has oils, so a shaving soap needs to be able to hold up better than that. I've tried different brushes, different mugs, the results are uniformly unsatisfactory.

I really love this soap. The feel is very nice and slickness is great. Scent is always the most fun part of soaps. It is cheerful and pleasant and unique. It is strong enough to leave an impression but also something that I could smell daily without feeling it is too much.


Customer review

I agree with Mr Tompson. Slickness primary & residual is from another planet. But you can always buy the Seville in Excelsior. It is also cheaper.

In my book there is no slicker shaving soap on the market than Will's "Excelsior Base" shaving soaps! Will has set the bar high for other shaving soap artisans without a doubt. Love the scent of the petunia's in this soap. I can only imagine Heaven smells very similar.
