I got refill block to refill my soap mug, block was soft and easy to cut like other glycerine soaps, I cubed and microwaved for 20 to 30sec in my mug, Mixed 2 drops each of amyris/cedar/petitgrain/vetivert in as I like strong scents but not good idea for sensitive skin types. Left to cool and it set to a great consistency, not like some of the "croap" types out there. Soft soaps overload my brush and I don't like them personally.
I'm used to MWF soap so I judged this against a high standard and had low expectations, especially since the lanolin in MWF makes it smoother than most. To be honest having never heard of it on forums I didn't expect a winner but I'll recommend to friends etc now. I've had worse time with similar priced but mass produced shave soap and cottage industry/boutique stuff can be hit and miss. Wet out the surface with warm water and loaded up my badger brush and was impressed it wasn't too soft and just right so effortlessly loaded up proper amount. As expected for fuller earth in the mix it is on the thirsty side and holds moisture well, but the real joy was in the lather and slickness!
I partially lathered in a shave bowl but ended up building it on my head and face as it lathers quick I found. Due to fullers earth I presume it holds nice amount of water very well and seems to stay hydrated.
It is slicker than most soaps I've tried and lather is creamy not bubbly/frothy. My DE8911 glides across it and cuts spot on! Pass wise I got 3 on face and same on head out of the one brush load up so that was good. Lathering bowl was empty at the end which was impressive amount still. Loaded a few swirls over the soap extra at the end to do 4th pass on head as a touch up since I insist on it being 100% Kojak'd ;) I probably could have done another pass on face too despite not loading much but I didn't need it so had to rinse the extra out the brush.
I'll probably still get the odd tabac and mwf but this is on my top 3 soaps now which is surprise and I'm kind of happy to stop hopping around searching out new soaps after this although I don't want to miss another hidden gem so likely wont stop. Wouldn't have thought it possible to be so impressed with shaving soap to write such long review which is embarrassing haha. Hope it helps anyone who is considering it and may be worth asking the seller if it performs the same as none co-q10 anti aging stuff.
