I've been shaving with Captain Fawcett's Luxurious Shaving Soap for the last few years now. I find it much nicer to shave with than gels or foams, plus it lasts a lot longer too. It may seem expensive, but one 100g bar has lasted me over two years! Great value for money! There's no doubt I would have spent at least as much, if not slightly more, on shave gel over this period.
