    Pre de Provence shave soaps are pretty darn good soaps at a fair price. They are quad milled (I think) so they last darn near forever.

    I'll reiterate the Stirling recommendation.

    However, I recently used my long-ignored Proraso red soap (because, y'know, it's *boring* compared to these independent micro boutique soap companies!) and I remembered just what a *great* soap it is.

    As mentioned samples are the best way to get variety for a cheap price, and you can try the product out without being stuck with something you don't like.

    Without really knowing what your budget is, my votes go to:
    1) Mystic Water
    2) Proraso
    3) RazoRock
    4) Stirling
    5) Mike's Natural

    "budget is super limited" - not sure what that means as too an actual dollar figure. There are so many top notch soaps available for under $15 - Stirling, Barrister & Mann, Captain's Choice, Cella, Proraso, et cetera. You can't go wrong with any of these - you just need to decide on the scent. Any one of them is less expensive than buying the (chemical enhanced) shave cream in a can.

    I love tallow + lanolin so MFW and Shannons shave soaps are some of my top. MWF refill puck is 14.99 on the bay shipped (maybe cheaper somewhere else) and Shannons soaps are 11.99/tub plus $5 shipping and they come in their own container.

    Arko. If the scent agrees with you, it's the answer to your question.

    I changed my mind. I love Stirling, and you certinaly can't go wrong there. But Pre de Provence is becoming my go-to soap in terms of performance. It's a really hard puck, and weighs in at 5.3 oz, so it's a great value as well.
