Finished my Nanny's Silly Soap - Down Home Summer shaving soap

This is the only second shaving soap that I've ever bought (apart from TOBS Sandalwood, which I got a 2nd of as a present).

One of my very favourite soap scents. Very summery & flowery. Excellent performance, (albeit you need to load a bit more heavily than usual) and nice skin conditioning afterwards.
I think NSS is very often overlooked as a UK artisan soap and should have more limelight.

Would I buy it again? Maybe once my stockpile has reduced somewhat but I think I'd probably try another scent (already have the Moroccan Sands which is also fab) because I'm curious.

Finished my Nanny's Silly Soap - won't your Nan be upset with you.

When I first came on this forum 2009, NSS was very popular. There wasn't quite so many artisans around then.

I managed to get a tub of Bodyshop Maca root and Aloe shaving cream, one of my all time favourite shaving creams/soaps the last time I was out in Hong Kong. It lasted me about 6 months and that was used only on 'treat' days. I miss it so much. Can't get it here on the mainland of China for love nor money.

Is it easy to send things in to China? Those of us in the UK can send some on to you?

Not difficult but not cheap air mail from the local post office but you need to get the address in Chinese and basic parts in English.I managed to get a couple of boots shaving sticks sent from the uk by a mate of mine about 8 months ago, took 2 or 3 weeks.
