I have tough whiskers and have used a Palmolive shaving stick soap for most of my adult life .
It isn't made anymore and the only alternative was useless perfumed spray soap made for Metro males with four whispy hairs on their chin .

I found a saviour in a Turkish made soft shaving soap stick . I buy it over the net from an Australian importer and I have to say it's the best I've ever used .
I don't have shares in the company , I just want to try help anyone else out there who has had the same trouble . A stick lasts me at least four months , so it's economical as well .

It's called ARKO , I don't know why the image is reversed.

I use a US product called "Shave Secret". It's an oil of sorts, it really works. The down side is whatever is in it seems to dull the razor, so one or 2 shaves is all I get. But, I use inexpensive Japanese double edged blades (Sharks) that run about $7.00 per HUNDRED, not the double, triple, 4 or 5 blade super razors that run $20 for 3 or 5. I hate shaving, have a tough beard and avoid it if I can. I used a brush and mug for years. Best soap I found was some goat milk soap ny wife got someplace. Good stuff, never found it again.

My favourite is Williams Mug Shaving soap(Famous for it's Lather) that comes in a cake. Smells nice, and works well. I haven't seen sticks of shaving soap here for decades, and most stuff comes in a spray can- lots of fluff, not much substance. Oh by the way, a bit of advice, when you are in a hurry and there's no hot water, don't put your shaving mug in the microwave. Bad things happen. unc

I used Palmolive cup soap, Palmolive stick, and Palmolive Lather (comes in a squeeze tube) for 50 years -- getting the stick and Lather from Europe after the Palmolive shaving products were withdrawn from the U S market.

You have piqued my curiosity enough for me to look for some of it next time I'm in Europe. Thanks for the tip.

I will mention that I've found Palmolive bar soap to be a better soap for shaving than ANY other-than-Palmolive shaving soap I've tried.

I use the little chips of Dial soap that you can't hold anymore in a shaving mug with a brush. When I started doing it I would shred the soap and heat it with water to make it solid. Now I just drop them in and add a little water and it works just as well. I used to shave twice a day. Now twice a week sometimes, sometimes not and clip my beard before shaving.
