Sudsy Soapery has a new scent in their tallow soap coming out tomorrow: Lemon Rose Chypre. Although I am not an aficionado of rose, this may serve well for those who didn't like their initial lemon tallow soap. Wink

My issue with them is their base rather than the scents. Imo..just not up there with WK, GD, T+S, B&M....at least for my face...

Tallow & Steel didn't "ring" my bell as their scents are so outlandishly obscure IMO. Nor did the performance impress me. Grooming Dept. is unobtainium for damn near all so I can't compare. Wholly Kaw I liked, but not any better than Uplift, Lisa's Artisan or Dirtyver for that matter. Add A&E's new goat milk/tallow to the aforementioned three and that is my current "Four Horseman" of soaps.

Speaking of scents...the last SS Lemon I smelled...Lemon Uplift was anything but...smelled like a lemon furniture cleaner. May have put up with it if the performance was there...but it wasn’t..All soaps are YMMV...

Their vegan soaps were the best of any I have tried out of a boatload and the tallow version is a smidge better IMO. Hell, their vegan soaps beat 99.99% of all tallow soaps for that matter IMO. As aforementioned, all faces are different. I will state in their defense that SS vegan soaps require little water and perhaps some over hydrate it(?).

I honestly don't know if mine is vegan or tallow. It was thrown in during a BST sale. Now I need to go check.

It's vegan. The only tallow soaps they have are Uplift and this new one.

I tried a few including the Uplift, but am only keeping the Delor de Treget collaboration with CL). Just because I very much like the CL scents I ordered a tub of the Lemon Rose Chypre. Looking forward to trying it whenever it arrives
