Looking for something cheap, but surprisingly effective

I bought a heap of Lea sticks in Spain a couple of years ago as they were dirt cheap (remember international travel?), however I'm starting to run out. I am looking for a cheap hard soap that is at least as good if not better, any recommendations? I tried Arko, don't like the scent.

Cheers.

I'd suggest La Toja mate - similar in price and performance to Lea -


cheers - I.

Connaught Shaving in the UK have the Lea Sticks in again, 2 for £3.60


It's a bit more expensive at around £6 for a 125g, but Mitchell's Wool Fat is triple milled and will last forever. I've been using my one a lot and it still looks about the same as it did when it was new.

I'm in a hard water area and struggled to get this to load the brush.
