Sampson's All-Natural Shaving Soap (156g)
Sampsons All Natural, a USA-produced small-batch soap maker, will likely one day be a well known entity.
100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS; entirely bereft of any perfumes/chemicals/dyes/preservatives, Sampsons only considers your skin's benefit for their careful selection of ingredients.
There's a well known and quite costly Europe-distribution-only shaving soap that's revered for its simple, effective, premium-ingredients nature; taking nothing away from the Sampsons product, it would be fair to declare that, while nonetheless derived of their own independent analysis, the Sampsons soap and the aforeanonymouslymentioned European soap are as similar as are Proraso and Omega soaps; surely just a little different, but much more the same than themselves and any other products on the market.
The Sampsons soap's nearly as easy to use as the ultra-simple Proraso or Trumpers' creams, and yet leaves my skin in the superior condition of the perpetually-challenging-to-work Osma rock-hard French soap.
100% produced in the USA, of 100% natural ingredients. Soap's rather firm; not cold peanut butter dense, but it takes quite a few shaves worth to break through the plane of the top of the jar; what's pictured above is my home jar after ~60-80 uses, primarily with 20mm and 22mm knots but there's some big bruiser days dialed in there, too, mostly using a VP Leonhardy 700040. This is an example of what has colloquially become shaving-nerd-known as a "croap", neither rock-hard waterless style 'soap' nor soft 'cream' but somewhere in the middle.
Not much 'olfactory entertainment' factor, a single authentically pine note and that's pretty much it. Buy for performance, and choose the Brits instead to be smelltertained, though they'll never feel as natural nor give the same type of lather.
A notable unique Sampsons trait; it rinses away incredibly well, so easy to come off your face you'd never know it was there.
The 156g of fuel's going to yield a solid 2 months of daily use with ostentatious ~30mm-knot drunkard brushes, and easily 4-6 mos. with more sensible 20-22mm knots, though I will wager a 20mm "Rein Dachs Klassik" and this will get an entire year of shaving.
