A couple I've tried and like but maybe no longterm. Speick shaving cream but hard to find. Portland General Store Whiskey wet shave soap . Try to find the original version which is a different formulation.

Oh, and forgot. I almost always prep with dermalogica close shave oil. A little goes a long way.

I had good luck today using Toms of Maine with a safety razor...I lathered up and shaved pretty darn good. You can search the net for DIY glycerine based soaps and have at it...You don't need to make pretty bars, lumps of ugly soap will do just fine for shaving since the lathering will wear the soap into a mess :)

i have been through quite a few soaps, and a few brands left to try, current favorites are Razorock and Ogalalla soaps. a surprise was Williams Mug soap, bought on vacation and wound up converting a friend, although not my favorite scent.

I am fond of eucalyptus and menthol while shaving so my 2 current favorites are :

1. Proraso Shaving Soap w/ Eucalyptus & Menthol
2. C.O. Bigelow Shave Cream with Eucalyptus

Proraso makes the CO Bigelow brand and it is in cream form not in actual soap format but I like it. Seems to be formulated different than their Proraso Classic Shaving Cream With Eucalyptus Oil.

Col. Ichabod Conk makes a good glycerin based soap I'm partial to the Bay Rum variety.

BTW, anyone wanting to try the C. O. Bigelow...they sell it at bath and body works. In the VERY small 'mens' section :) I bought 3 large tubes for $22 (I think) on a buy 2 get one free deal. Not a bad cream, especially for the prce.

I have to be careful with products that I put on my face, due to my Rosacea. With that, I have found Shea Moisture products to be best.

I use Lever 2000 when I shave in the shower currently with the Gillette Fusion cartridge razor, put some on the hands, then rub in to the face and shave away! :P

Looking to get a Omega 48 pro boar brush and some soaps, Mitchells, RazoRock BrainFreeze and Proraso Eucalyptus/menthol are on the list!
