Go-to goodness Review by: Dale 10/10/2017

This shaving soap has been my go to product for 4 years.
This soap is easy to lather using a badger hair brush and a little water produces a thick lather that is easy to apply and I really like the scent, not too strong, just pleasant.
One soap refill usually lasts me about a year of shaving 3-4 times a week.
Wholeheartedly recommended.
Does the job, but disappointing Review by: Andrew 15/05/2016

I appreciate that other reviewers have had a better experience with getting a rich lather, but I found the lather from this soap to be very disappointing. It does a reasonable job, but if you like a rich lather, stick with the Trumper's Limes Shaving Cream.
Striking bowl Review by: Ben 1/12/2014

Upon lifting the polished wooden lid, I was greeted with the smell of, well, soap.
Whilst there is a hint of lime, it's hardly dominant. I liken it to the role Alfred P. Doolittle plays in the 1964 American musical film adaptation of My Fair Lady - less out and out star, but certainly there in support.
As for the Lather, well it never reached second gear. The suds dissipated before I could wield the 34C HD sporting a fresh Astra across my skin, causing unparalleled levels of irritation.
Not an enjoyable shave for mine.
Very nice performance with a nice subtle Lime scent! Review by: Anthony 5/02/2014

Having owned other GFT soaps (Rose and Sandalwood), I couldn't wait to add "Lime" to my collection.

Like all the GFT soaps, the soap comes in a well presented box (as shown in the picture) which gives you an overview of GTF.

Inside is a very nice wooden bowl which houses the soap (which is sealed in plastic to keep it fresh).

On taking off the plastic I was greeted with a very light lime scent! Reminiscent of a freshly squeezed lime as the description states.

I re-hydrated the soap (ie. place some water on the soap and leave it to absorb), and then started my lather.

The performance of the soap like all GFT soaps I have used prior was magnificent! With some soaps, I am not able to product a rich lather, and usually tend to use these to face lather directly as opposed to bowl lathering, however, with all GFT soaps (including this one) I have been able to bowl lather without any issues.

The lime scent is very subtle, so I sometimes get a lime / soapy scent, however, the performance is top notch! Nice, thick, rich lather which lasted for a 3 pass shave!

All in all, I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get into GFT soaps. Its light on the lime scent, but well worth it for the performance.

Thank you Mens Biz for the lightning fast shipping and sound advise!

Limes is the second Trumpers I've shaved with and certainly the best Lime soap I've ever used.
Simple as that. Very easy to work up a lather, long lasting once applied to my face and my straight razor
glides easily and smoothly. The scent is beautiful. It's no coincidence that Trumpers include the title
of "Gentlemens Perfumers" amongst their credits. Sure, it's a little more expensive than other, larger pucks,
but I consider it a good trade-off. I'd say the crisp scent will be perfect for Summer.

After using canned cream for so long, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to switch to something natural with some zing to it. This soap has been working really well for this single-blade beginner.
Great product, if you don't mind the price. Review by: Ian 8/03/2011

Wanted to try a soap in the higher-end of the market and this is a very nice one. The smell is a subtle lime with a hint of rose which is nice, especially if strong scents irritate your nose. Easy to get a thick, protective lather and my face feels very nice and moist after shaving. I also use this with GFT Skin Food pre and post shave and my face has never been happier. A bit pricier, but it does come in a nice wooden bowl!
