My dad introduced me to blade shaving using a mug and horse hair brush when I was 15... I am now almost 55 and for most if not all of those years, I have used Williams brand. It's great!
I am so glad to find it online at Amazon. I bought 20 cakes when the only store I knew of that carried it was closing it out. I wanted enough to get me through to retirement...I hope never to shave thereafter.

I have used Williams soap almost exclusively since i made the transisiton from canned aerosol gels 5 years ago. The price savings and good results I have gotten from the soap has been satisfying for all this time. I even like the vaguely citrus scent that it leaves on my skin.

Even when I take the wonderful price out of the equation, I like this soap for its merits. I find that my shaves with this soap are markedly superior to any of the aerosol shave creams, even the well-marketed premium shave gels, that i have tried.

A couple of things:

1. I had trouble getting a lather built up with this soap in the past. Previously, I attributed it to the hard water in my area. I have since found that it was my technique that was flawed. This soap is very concentrated and thus needs to be mixed with a few dashes of water to develop a good lather. Once I knew that, I could build up a good dense lather that holds very well in about 30 seconds.
Here's how:
A. I soak the soap in hot water for 2 minutes prior to shaving and then drain the water just prior to my shave.
B. I apply some soap to the tip my brush and then start to build a lather by swirling the soap in my hand.
C. With the very tip of the brush, I dip it in the hot water and add a couple of drops from the sink into the lather on my hand and keep swirling to further mix it into the soap until the mixture gets very foamy and then apply it to my face.
D. I am now even more satisfied with this soap now that I can use it properly.

2. Some people complain about the drying effect that this soap has upon your face. I have not had a problem with it, but I also have oily skin. If your skin is sensitive or dry, you may want to look at pre-shave balms or other soaps that are glyerin-based. They will provide better lubrication.

All told, I like this product. I like what it does to my face, and for the price, it can't be beat.

Don't waste your time with super fancy scented import soaps. The only way Williams will dry on your face is if it takes you fifteen minutes to make a single pass. However, if you do love smelling like a garden in spring this stuff is not for you. Warning though, after you use this shaving soap you will smell like a man. Sorry to those of you who prefer to smell like roses.

A world of difference from poor canned substitutes. Good, lasting lather that is complection friendly, non-drying, and no petro-chemical or alcohol (no-no's) ingredients. Only 4 out of five for no fancy-schmanzy sandal wood oil frangrance. At this price i'll take it.

Willians Mug Shaving Soap can be gotten at most local pharmacies, so try looking around before you pay shipping. The product just broadcasts tradition, with no-nonsense packaging. You get a small (1.75oz) shaving puck in a simple cardboard pack, and that's it. I'm just begining to learn "real" shaving with a shave soap, and I started out practicing my lathering technique using a disposable razor and a Tweezerman Men's Shaving Brush.

For my first effort, I hadn't yet learned how Williams requires a little more hot water than most soaps. I still built up a lather to equal or beat anything I've ever gotten out of a can, although it wasn't as fluffy as a good lather should be. The lather was thick, and smelled faintly of citronella and bar soap. My face was well-protected, and there was plenty of foam left for multiple lathers. The lather rinsed off cleanly and with no effort at all- a quick splash of water and there was no residue. My face felt a little dry and tight, but that could be my fault as I'm still learning. A quick splash of aftershave, and my girlfriend was delighted at the smoothness of my skin.

To get the full experience, I've learned to follow an old technique and soak the puck in a mug full of steaming hot water along with my brush while I do my pre-shave prep. Pour out the mug into the rinse water, and then build lather on the softened puck. This leads to a shorter life for the pick, but since Williams is dirt-cheap, that's not a big concern. Used with plenty of water, I've found that Williams fluffs up beautifully.

I have been using this brand of shaving soap for a good fifty years and was recently disappointed to find it was no longer stocked locally. The soap is relatively odor-free and has a nice non-greasy lather. Of all the soaps I've tried, this one is my favorite.

I started using Williams shaving soap when I began shaving at 15. My father used Williams, and so I followed suit. I've tried other shaving soaps, and none seem to do as well as Williams. For dedicated mug-and-brush shavers, this is the soap for you.
