Geo. F. Trumper | Eucris Shaving Soap with Wooden Bowl
From GEO F. Trumpers
Our glycerine based hard shaving soap with the scent of of Eucris EDT.
Our shaving soaps are finely refined soap, which is both smooth, long lasting and of the highest quality, with a good lather. These are superior in quality to triple milled soaps.

Recently purchased the soap in the bowl. I have now tried it three times and have the following observations:
1. As mentioned in many reviews of this soap it does not create a great lather. I had no problem making a lather after blooming the puck and using a synthetic brush but once applied it tends to dissipate. On the other hand it does have great slickness, which offsets the weak lather to some degree.
2. It has a nice, manly scent; somewhat musky but not heavy in my opinion.
3. It irritates my skin. I was hopeful this might fade with use but not so. The irritation is quite strong and only subsides after several hours after liberal applications of alum, witch hazel and a good balm. It is significant enough that I can no longer use this soap. Perhaps it is just me but I have used many other soaps over the years and never experienced this.
