    Just wondering if any of you guys have had any experience with these soaps?
    I have bought a few and I am really looking forward to trying them out.
    I have Bosco, Pulito, Menta and Albera on the way.
    Oh and I love the packaging.

    I have Pulito - lovely scent and brilliant performance but something irritates my skin.

    Have been meaning to give them a try from tvbshaving but haven't got round to it yet. I think I read of a reformulation a little while back, though. On TSN probably. When did you get yours, Paul?

    Just reading up and I think the reformulation has lanolin in the ingredients. Gutted it didn't agree with you Paul. How was the scent on the Pulito?

    I'm usually fine with Lanolin - but who knows what causes the sensitivity.
    The Pulito is a clean scent , smell very fresh, not sweet and cloying. A bit like fresh linen.

    These are excellent veggie-based soaps with some lovely scents. :)

    I like that kind of scent. Might have to give it a go.

    I have four of the soaps (and one balm). Scent is very light but performance is fantastic.

    I have Albera, Bosco, Terroso and Pulito. All are easy to lather and all the scents are great. I do get some minor heat/burn from the Terroso. Also, the matching balms are awesome. For performance, probably my favorite balm.

    So used Sapone Di Paolo for the first time yesterday (Menta, Spearmint scent) and my skin did not get on well with it at all. Totally gutted about. Performance and scent was great but something in the soap and balm just didn't agree with me. Guessing it must be to do with the oils used for the fragrance.
    Will see how the other scents go in my next few shaves.

    I'm a big fan of these fantastic soaps. I have the whole range in the new lanolin formula except for Arancione.
    The balms are also top notch. Very basic but very effective ingredient list.

    I've been using Pulito for the last 5 or so weeks.

    Great scent, lathers like a dream and very good in-shave performance. The only issue for me is that I find it very drying post shave, so a repeat purchase is unlikely. I do unfortunately find this with some vege soaps, De Vergulde Hand for example behaving similarly.
