    I enjoy MWF and MamaBears a lot but Mikes Natural Soaps are my favorite based on scent, ease of lather and the feel of my skin post shave. To be fair, I have not used HoneyBee or Mystic Water Soaps as of yet.

    Mikes beats out MWF for latherability and having a scent ( tried 6 ) skincare better than MWF .Didnt care for Mamabear , ( ordered like 10 samples , great scents but lather and skincare not as good as Mikes or MWF. I also havent tried Mystic or Honeybee

    I love MWF. Heck, I could even lather it with YOUR brush!

    I am a big fan of Mitchell's. I just shaved with it today, it leaves my face feeling great!

    Mike's though MWF is amazing too. I get better lather with Mike's though. Going to try a generous PIF of MW samples this week or so.

    I think you forgot QCS though. I've only tried the sample of the lavender once but that scent is really strong and good!

    I really love Mama Bear soaps but I finally tried Mike's and I think he may give her a run for her money. MB really has the best scents in my book though.

    It seems MWF is in the lead, I suspected as much but seeing as how mikes is a smaller operation then mitchells its doing well.

    Lanolin is a no-go for me so that really reduces my options.

    While I voted for MWF, of those listed I think Honeybee soaps are excellent and for whatever reason, don't get the attention that they should in my view. MB soaps smell great but some give me a bit of a burn. I have not tried Mike's.

    Its such a hard choice between MWF and mikes soaps. They are both my favorites.

    haven't tried Mikes or Honeybee, but of the the others all of which i've tried, MWF is the best.

    MW is close and could be the top if they could tweak it so it was scuttle/hot water friendly. now that i face lather my soaps, I may have to revisit it and give it another try soon.

    MamaBear is a distant 3rd (but guessing it would be dead last if I ever try Mikes of Honeybee). I find melt/pour soaps to be lacking in performance and the MB was way too strong of EO for my face, it burned like heck.

    You owe it to yourself to try it at least once.

    I have a whole bunch of soaps on order, but put the MWF on wish list. I want to see how soaps work with my water. I have used only creams to date.

    I haven't either. I have the Kent version, but I haven't tried it yet.

    I chalk that up as there being a lot more shavers who have used Mama Bears than have used MW. MW is clearly better, in my experience.
