Vitos 'Green' Italian soft shaving soap 100gr or 200gr options UK stock
This tallow based soap is scented with almonds, and effortlessly produces a wonderful lather to ensure a close and comfortable shave for all skin types.
One of the best soaps out there.

Vitos Red and Green are two of the best soaps out there at any price, but there are differences between the two. Green has no glycerine and a mild almond talcum powder scent, Red has glycerine and a slightly stronger amaretto scent, but in usage both seem to dissipate over time.
Ease of Lathering - as easy as it gets to be honest!
Scent - mild almond talcum powder
Slickness - Not as slick as Red, but slick enough if the lather is hydrated
Cushion - Good thick lather, provides a lot of cushion, more than Vitos Red
Post Shave - Very good (most soaps seem to irritate my skin), maybe not as moisturising as Vitos Red, as it doesn't contain any glycerine, but that can be a good thing (eg if you have oily skin, or to use on a hot summers day)
Vitos Green is a superb soap, IMO it's not inferior to Red as there are some slight differences which make a different counterpart to Red.
First-class soap - in a manageable quantity

This is a classic shaving soap, which lathers well and smells great. Usually available in large blocks, presumably aimed at barbershop, Gemstone make it a more sensible purchase by offering it in smaller quantities cut from a large block.
