    I've been shaving for 54 years, shaving products have changed a lot, and my beard has changed much also. My beard became heavier in just a few years and extremely tough to boot. I have used many shave products over the years.
    I enjoy the nostalgic touch of a brush and mug. Van Der Hagen Shave Soap makes a fine lather. Van Der Hagen also makes a Shave Gel that gives a very smooth shave and provides skin protection against cuts and razor rash. I use both the gel and soap; I use a cheese grader to shred them and then mix the two and put them in my mug. The soap gives me the lather I like and the gel gives me a closer cut, an added benefit from the gel is that the razor blade is easier to clean.
    Both soap and gel offer very good shaves, together they give a better shave, in my opinion.

          It works well and is a very good value. Compared to Williams, it provides a better glide, not as good a lather, but the smell is way worse. It smells like the unscented lotions. An oily like smell.

            Comments about Van Der Hagen Deluxe Shave Soap, 2.5 oz:

            I've tried a bunch of luxury shave products since I began shaving my head a few years ago. A year or two ago I got several bars of this stuff, but didn't really like the scent (even though it's fairly subtle), so put it aside.

            However, I recently stumbled across the fact that the VDH shave soaps can be easily melted in the microwave (one or two 10-second bursts, checking for consistency after each time), and a teaspoon or so of your favorite cologne stirred in.

            So I use a 1-cup size (XS) ZipLoc storage container, put in a puck of VDH Deluxe or Glycerine shave soap, nuke until just melted, stir in a tsp of cologne, and let it set up again. I then can use the lid to keep it from drying out too much if it sits for more than a day.

            (Bonus tip: If you can find the 1/2 cup size container, use a half puck and 1/2 tsp. cologne to make a great travel-size option - especially when used with a smaller badger brush like the Tweezerman.)

              This is the soap I use the most. I have more expensive soaps but the Van Der Hagen Deluxe is the one I go to the most. Best value for the buck ive found in shaving soaps.

                    I've been using the VdH soaps on and off now for 6 months. I try more expensive products and keep coming back to the VdH Deluxe. It's just a great product that easily produces a very slick lather when loaded onto my Semogue boar brush. The only reason I don't give it five stars is the scent is just too muted for my tastes. I like mentholated soaps and creams so I took 2 cakes of VdH Deluxe and gently melted them in the microwave (in my very large shave mug). After the soap had cooled just a bit I added 5 mL (1 tsp) of peppermint extract. Wonderful aroma in the morming. Wakes me up and the menthol in the peppermint extract provides a nice cool feel. Perfect for the warmer weather already here.

                          This worked, and smells fine when I used it to shave my chest, and stomach hair, but when I shaved my face at the end I had about ten razor bumps in one area of my jaw. I don't know if it was my razor, or what, but it took about a week, and a half for them to go away, but still leaving spots lasting a month plus. That was my second shave ever, and first time trying wet shaving. I will not be wet shaving my face anymore.

                            The block of soap is to small for the standard mugs. I don't understand why you don't supply soap made by old spice or burma shave.
