so deliciously retro
on 29 June 2013
I bought this product on a whim as the packaging is so appealing. I am so glad I did.
I don't recommended the directions for use on the Amazon site - I found it produced thin and watery lather.
I took an Ikea stainless steel bowl that fits in the palm of my hand and crammed the soap in it.
Used with a bowl and badger brush, this soap consistantly produces massive amounts of creamy lather which doesn't dry my skin or leave a scum on the water in the sink.
Each stick is lasting five months. It's not quite the cheapest shaving soap but it's very close.
The only issue I could see would be the scent other reviewers have remarked upon - but it doesn't last beyond a week or so.
At this price you could try it and if you find the scent too much then the unopened/unused packets will sit on your bathroom shelf giving a manly 50s barber shop feel to the place.
Recommended - five stars.
