View Full Version : Any thoughts on EJ/Muhle soaps?

Hello all, I'd love to hear what the current opinions are on these soaps. Specifically, how do you rank them? Do they compare well with the soaps that are appreciated here? If anybody could post an ingredients list for any of these it'd be much appreciated. Cheers!
ps some thoughts on the...unusual sounding scents would be nice too.

Very good vegggie soaps, very moisturising. Use them, like them and they are part of my rotation. Highly recommended.
The Sea Buckthorn scent is very good, I love it!

I have the aloe variety and enjoy it quite a bit. A light, fresh scent and good shaves.

I have the Sea Buckthorn and absolutely love the scent. In the performance department I personally find it a bit lacking. It's not horrible or anything but I find my Italian soft soaps soaps so much more protective and prefer the thicker creamier lather they offer. One weird observation I have with this soap is the lather seems to float on top of my skin, rather than actually have any real adhesion to the skin. This seems to impede it's ability to protect. Again it's certainly not a bad product but the scent is definitely best thing about it IMHO.

Sea Buckthorn (both soap and cream) is straight potpourri - the fresh, grassy, fruity variety.

I have the Sea Buckthorn. I really like the smell, but I is lacking on protection like others have said, and I think it dries a little quick. When I shave my head with it, I end up doing sections, instead of lather my whole head and making a pass. My skin really likes this soap, it has some anti inflamitory property I think.
Even though I seem to like my tallow soaps a little better(Speick stick & Cella), I plan on using the Muhle till it runs out...it isn't bad enough to get rid of. I usually put a few drops of jojoba oil in my palm and rub it on my face and head after I get out of the shower to help with the protection. This seemed to stop the weeper I would get every now and again with this soap.

I had a similar experience with the Sea Buckthorn soap - liked the smell, but only so-so shaves.

I fall in with the other gents about the sea buckthorn: great scent, not so great in the protection department. I had actually thought that it was just me and my hard water, but it seems that I'm not the only one who has issues with it.

It was adequate, but not stellar for me.
Had the Sandalwood, very nice scent.
