    I routinely juggle several shaving soaps in my rotation and to be honest, most are a bit spendier than VDH Glycerin. However, NONE deliver the quality and consistency of VDH Glycerin. In this day and age, we're all looking for a reasonably priced product with exceptional quality. As rare as this situation is, VDH Glycerin delivers. It lathers with ease and produces a very slick, luxurious covering of the shaving surface. No matter what "boutique" shaving soap I have on hand, I seem to reach for VDH Glycerin more days than not. The VDH Deluxe is also a very good product but of the two I prefer the Glycerin. This soap would be a bargain at twice the price. Whatever VDH is doing, I certainly hope they keep doing it. My shave cave will never be without VDH glycerin.

    This is a very good, inexpensive shave soap that is perfect for the wetshaving newbie. It builds slick lather effortlessly with a good brush and is loaded with glycerin to help keep the face moisturized throughout the shave. With a subtle, unoffensive scent, this is an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin. Since it is a glycerin soap, it can be melted to fit a shaving mug or bowl.

    My only real complaint would be the lack of cushion from the lather. It is firmly in the low-end soap category in this regard, as better soaps and creams provide more cushion from the blade. This can be remedied by adding some good shaving cream to the soap-filled brush, effectively building a "superlather" which combines the slickness of a soap and the cushion of a cream. Kiss My Face make excellent shave creams for this purpose.

    In all, this is a cheap soap that performs surprisingly well. There are much better soaps out there, but not at this price.

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

      great stuff. glycerin soap in my shaving soap dish gets nice and foamy with my badger brush and makes for an easy shave done old style. i personally like the lack of any significant scent in my shave soap and this does the trick. it'll last for ages and is very affordable.

          I use this and the "delux" soap and both are very good. They have a nice clean scent. No nicks or cuts. I'd certainly purchase these products again.

                  If you can't afford shave cream, then this shave soap is the next best thing for wet shaving. Unlike some shave soaps, this glycerin based soap does not burn on the third or fourth pass.

                      I have tried a number of brands over the years, and this is the very best I have found. I like the mild scent, the feel on my face and the way my razor glides through my beard with virtually no drag. Since trying this I have not felt the need to look further. This is my ideal shaving soap
