Might be a bit unfair for me to vote since I've only tried one......but Mystic Waters 4 times a week works for me :)

MWF is not a hard latherer at all. I dont get that.
Mike's was my first soap, and I have not gone far astray from that. I have a bunch of QCS cream samples, and a QCS soap, but the creams are not as good as the soap for me. I guess I like the lanolin. Haven't given the QCS a fair shot yet. Tried it once, lathered poorly in that attempt, never went back. Mike's is just so good.
Haven't tried any of the thers yet either, but will be trying the MWF, MW, and giving the QCS a fair trial, and probably the mama bears as well.
The QCS ASB is fantastic though.

I've tried MW, Mikes and Honeybee. In all honesty, I would put MW and Mikes 1A and 1B. I haven't tried MWF and due to my preference in tallow soaps, I don't see myself ordering MB soaps. My soap rotations for the near future are going to consist of MW and Mike's.
Gotta give Mama the love!

MWF all the way for me.
Well, I just received 3 samples from Michelle at Mystic Water (which I paid for), 1 shampoo bar and 2 shave soaps…Rosalimone and Lavender Lime. Loved the bar and I have to say that the shave soaps are at least as good as anything I’ve tried in my 3 short years of wet shaving. With all due respect to some of you that have said you had some problems with the lather…I must say I did not. Load the brush with enough product, start with a LITTLE water and build. I did both face and bowl lather and both worked equally well. I especially loved the Rosalimone scent…so much lather I was sad to watch it go down the drain when cleaning my brush after 3-4 passes.
Well done Michelle, you’ve got a new customer!
It's a tie between mystic water and mikes for me. My top two soaps.
I really enjoy mwf but I just put an order in for Mike's. I hope they are on the fast boat to Korea.

I have tried multiple scents of Mama Bear soap, multiple scents of Mystic Waters soap, and one scent of Mike's Natural. I have never tried any of the others.
Of the three, I like Mystic Waters best, then Mama Bears, then Mike's. YMMV.

I have a few samples from Mike and they've all been awesome. I just ordered a puck of MWF due to all of the comments on this thread. We'll see how it turns out.

I created this post to help people decide on what soaps to try of the popular ones on the forumn, if it helps people make a choice on a purchase then it was all worth it.
I've tried MWF and it's a staple in my den.
I have a few pucks of Mama Bears and its decent, but doesn't get much time in my current rotation. I love her scents but I just prefer tallow soaps.
I've recently tried Mystic Water Soap, and I must admit its a solid performer. The fact that MW is a tallow soap and comes in multiple scents is a huge bonus. Michelle (the owner of MW) has been fantastic to deal with. I'm liking her shampoo bar and facial soap as well.
I haven't tried Mike's yet, but I have some on order. Sounds like his are also tallow soaps.
Even though the Poll is closed, I'm going with Mystic Water Soaps.
