I have a TOBS Lime and a Platinum Collection that both lather great.
And Bath House is awesome.
thank you Ryan.i only have tobs and truefitt creams, fantastic.the MWF and sv soap as well.reviews like yours have saved me lots of $.thankfully i have only made 2 mediocre purchases.one local fair type product and cade..
i have seen some good tobs hard soap reviews.was interested a while back in their sandalwood soap.love the cream but a hard soap in that scent would be elegant imo..
Poking around the forums, the general consensus seems to be that Tobbs is considered "good," while GFT and T&H soaps are "bad."
It wasn't that long ago that MWF soap was either "it works" or "it doesn't." Between my MWF hydration thread and variations on that method, which usually involve some sort of 'blooming,' most people can get an exellent lather from MWF these days.
Maybe someone will eventually find a trouble free way* to unlock the potential of GFT soaps.
...I'm not going to hold my breath.
*that doesn't involve a healthy application of KmF to 'fix' the lather.
I love Trumpers but I will say the cream is better than the soap, but I can't stand their soap. But when it comes to the skin foods, those are sensational. That's just my female perspective.
From a male perspective... I agree 100%. Though at least with the Limes skin food, it will go rancid if not used within a reasonable time frame. (2+ years).
Yes, that part sucks. But I tend to use it up pretty quickly
The TSD shop (before it closed) made 'skin milk,' I think it was called. It was pretty much the same as skin food, but was witch hazel based rather than glycerin based. Results were comparable, and skin milk was much more affordable than skin food.
@Queen of Blades can probably fill in any details I might have missed or gotten inaccurate.
