    This is kind of a review So I tried the Wilkinson Sword shave soap lather is ok and looked up on how to get good lather.

    Now a month later I decided to try proaso eucalyptus and menthol shave cream I used a old coffee mug that I’m not using anymore and way better lather and preformance.

    Don't judge the lather and performance of one soap for how all soaps are going to perform.
    I prefer soaps, myself. Why? I like the ritual of loading the brush and whipping up a lather in my lather bowl.
    But that's me.
    There are some outstanding soaps out there.

    Definitely, I’m not sure if it is just the Wilkinson sword soap I herd col. conk shave soap is really good I just changed the title because I didn’t mean to compare soap to cream. There still is the ritual of mixing with the brush

    Not a fan of Conk, myself. Nothing special with the lather or scent.

    You are in BC, right? PM me if you’d like to try a few other soaps that will make you forget about the Williams.

    Don't buy the flying saucer; you want the stick.

    The Wilkerson sword is one of my least favorite soaps. Proraso is top shelf anyway you go.

    Actually not hard to load at all. Just not the best soap out there.

    This is the stick: http://connaughtshaving.com/ws004.html

    Twice as good as the Palmolive stick, in my opinion.
