Used the red today and created an explosion of slick, cushioning lather in no time. Love using a big boar knot on it. Vastly superior to 3P for me and it tops Cella too. I simply bought a portion from those wonderful chaps at Gemstone Trading and when other shaving mediums go down, I can see me buying the big block.
Buy it now! The tallow versions are being replaced with a vegan formula this year.

Well I received a generous portion of Red from Paul and have been using it frequently...I find it very hard to find a differrence, if there is one, it may be that the Red lathers ever so slightly quicker....but that really is too hard to call...also, it may just be a tad creamier/thicker in again a shorter time...but all this could be imagination, it is a fantastic soap and I would like to thank Paul again for giving me the oppertunity to try it and compare it.
You are welcome Bob. P.

All,

Just got some Vitos Red and Green any recommendations on storage?

Best,

Ben
Put it your blocks in a ziplock bag in a cool dark place (back of the cupboard or something) wrapped in clingfilm or something, then cut off a chunk (however much you like.

I've found once off the block they tend to lose the scent and harden up but they perform just as well.

FWIW, I'm yet to find a shaving soap that suits my skin as well as Vitos Red & Green.

Superb soaps.

Thanks for that. Just thought I'd ask. I didn't know if the fridge / freezer was an option.

I've cut a bit off and put it in an empty Monsavon Bol Raser box.

Will stow the rest as suggested.

Best,

Ben

Sealed environment: 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 70 percent relative humidity. Add moisture to the sealed environment to keep your Vitos from drying out. This could be via a sponge soaked in distilled water or propylene glycol, or it could be using a digital hygrometer that automatically controls the humidification system and air circulation. Do not store higher than 2000ft above sea level. Do not store higher than 1.5m above ground level - a falling block of Vitos can severely damage a human.

Now I've typed that, I may be confused with cigars....
