    The shaving & body butter, is stated to have a variety of uses, (for shaving, post shave skin care and general skin softening-smoothing-moisturizing). I've only used as a post shave balm and work the rest into my hands and will say it's a good product for skin softening, smoothing moisturizing protection but, if your looking for something soothing post shave, you're not going to get that. Though I might purchase this again for general skin care, I would also choose the unscented (I believe they call it purist or something similar). I chose the Cedar-Cade Wood and frankly, don't like the scent...it's perhaps peaty at best...at first it reminded me of a campfire you dowsed out with water...perhaps not an accurate description but something close to it. I even asked a lady friend her opinion and it wasn't favorable.

    Again, as a skin butter, great...shave balm...not what I was looking for & I will say that I am fond of the shave soap and scents...I'm not sure you can do better in that category.

    hello gentleman,

    A little birdie told me that there may be an ice menthol surprise under the tree this year. I had a couple of questions for the users here. Firstly, as a face latherer, can you load the paste directly in the glas bowl then go to the face for lathering? Is it a hard enough cream for that?

    Secondly, how are people using the preshave soap? I am used to the preshave proraso cream which rubs into the face. Is the preshave soap designed to be used in the shower beforehand and washed off? Or applied to the face and then lathered on top of?

    Right. We are moving to Munich. Which is 700m away from where we are now. A really good friend of mine just lost her husband, and her son is 14. So I was tasked with teaching him how to shave.

    And I did.

    I had run out of Castle Forbes, so I went for Mei▀ner Tremonia paste, and the rest of the line.

    The pre shave soap is meant to be used as a soap. Wash, rinse, done.

    I don't think face lathering from creams is a good idea. You can lather in your hand. The trick is to get the consistency right. Totally irrespective of the product. Face lathering works best with soaps.

    Oh I don't know about that. I have several creams and they face lather just fine. The trick is initially selecting the correctly sized dollop of product and have a proper wetted brush (those two parameters will change with each cream). Then you just work it out on your face.

    Yup, never had a problem face lathering a shave cream either. Started off in the late 1960s with a boar brush and shaving cream in a tube. Amazing what you can do when you don't know any better. Ignorance is indeed bliss in some cases.

    Yes. It is possibly the most refined Bay Rum scent in the market. The aftershave balm is also extremely nice.

    I have used Natural bay rum 2 times now and I love it. I am not sure you will find a better soap for anywhere close to this price. I really like the glass jar it comes in as well.

    Here is a very nice (German language, Google Translate link here) interview with Thomas Mei▀ner of Mei▀ner Tremonia: Renaissance of the soap art. Enjoy.
